Been there, done that. We recently sold 8 contracts, bought 1 more and now have 16 contracts at 6 resorts.

Boy is Bill right!!! We bought 100 SSR on our honeymoon in Oct. 2011. Then 2 100's at AKV in May of this year. Then 100 at VGF in June and now 2 50's in BCV in August. We went from 100 to 500 in less than two years!

We are locals that live in St. Pete and we come to Disney about once a month. I sat down and figured out a weekend for every month knowing that some months are harder to get if you don't own... Hence the VGF and BCV add ons. My Son's birthday is in October and his favorite resort is BCV!! Food and Wine has made it almost impossible to get ressies there for him in the past at 7 months!

I also threw in a 3 Bedroom Grand Villa to host friends!

Another consideration was keeping the points even to split between our kids in the future. SSR, AKV and one BCV go to our son. VGF, AKV and the other BCV will go to our daughter.

500 is perfect for us now. Our annual passes more than pay for themselves!!! 😃

345 pts in one resort. I have 4 contracts 2 are original and 2 are add-ons. I haven't had problems staying at other resorts when I want to. Of course I know some resorts at some times of the year will be impossible, but I have no problems staying where I own. I did calculate the number of points in a way similar to your idea - basically how many points for a 1 BR when I plan ongoing. If that changes and I need more points, I guess then I'll have another case of addonitis.
