I meant to comment on this. With no DVC existing in the west until VGC open it's member base is strong on the east coast and less here on the west. There are a few of us around though!

If you are open to any UY you may be able to buy VGC direct more quickly than if you are set on one particular but I think there still are waitlists for every UY. And the price is $165/pt.

If you can find resale that may possibly be a faster option however one thing buying direct is that you can still use the points for the DL hotels if you run into a pinch and you can't with resale points. However if you will book in the home resort priority period that should not be an issue. We really do need another DVC at DL!

We've bought both direct and resale and I have no problem recommending resale or buying that way again myself.

But if I don't own that resort for a home resort, then I would have no chance for availability. Why get it for somewhere I won't be visiting.

If you want to stay at VGC then you need to buy there for the best chance of getting a reservation. My point is there could be a time where at 11 months, what you want, when you want it, may not be available.

Many bought SSR or even VB with the hopes of saving money and getting a reservation at another resort at 7 months. Yes they may have saved some money but again, they won't always get the reservation they want.

Another thought, DL is close and it's a great place to visit but IMO WDW is worth the plane ride. More parks, more restaurants, more resorts, more to do, a better value for your dollar. If you take longer vacations and not just weekend stays, you might want to consider a WDW purchase.
