Talking UK DVC roll-call!

I know we've got a few new UK DVC members here, and we haven't had a roll-call for a while, so how about another one?

I'll kick off (moderator's perogative ):
DH and I joined DVC in July 2001 with VWL as our Home Resort.

Together with our DDs we've so far stayed at OKW, VWL and BWV and hope to add VB to that list next year. Last year we managed to book five nights in a GV at OKW with lots of family.

Over to you........

Great idea Hilary!

We joined in May 2000 at BVW with 210 points and have added on twice now to bring us up to 320 once the latest set of paperwork is all done

We've had a one bedroom at VWL at Christmas time a couple of years ago - that was very beautiful - and a studio at OKW this time last year. Apart from that, we love our home resort at the Boardwalk and the short walks to Epcot and MGM.

This October we've got a BWV studio booked for a couple of weeks, and next year we planning on a trip to BWV and Vero, taking my mum along for the first time. She's been to WDW once before but stayed at the All-Stars, so DVC will hopefully be a bit special for her. We might even see if we can get a GV at OKW for a couple of nights, just to experience that ultimate luxury


ps - whilst i've been typing this the FedEx van just arrived with our addon documents

Joined May 2001 - 160 points at VWL

Have stayed at OKW, BWV, but only a single night so far at 'home', though we did splurge with a 1 bedroom - also did the DVC Members Cruise.

I have half an eye on the re-sales at the moment in the hopes of picking up a nice BW contract though as I definately don't have enough points!!!

Still a newbie :)

We joined in August 2002 and haven't been 'home' yet, (although not long now).
We bought 165 points at the BCV and am now considering selling H's liver & kidneys to fund the further 339 points that we'd like, although he claims he's still using them!

Only ever stayed at the All Stars in the past and we can't wait to stay at the BCV.

1992 - Offsite, 1998 ASMusic, 2001 ASMovies
2003 - BCV 2004 - BCV 2005 - OKW, BCV, HRH
2008 - Islamorada & BCV 2010 - OKW, BWV & AKL
2012 OKW, BLT & VB 2013 - OKW

Myself, wife, and two children have just joined in the past week!

My wife has worked out that in 2005 (it's such a long time), we can have a 3 night cruise, 3 nights at the BW, and 5 nights at the BCV (home).

The salesman we dealt with, Nic, was fantastic.

We joined in February 2000 with 180 points at the BWV.

So far we have stayed at the Boardwalk (twice) and Vero Beach.
In 9 days we set off for a week on the Disney cruise followed by 6 nights at the Beach Club Villas.

Joined March 2002 and used some of the points at DLP last December for a family get together for DH's 40th Birthday.

Absolutely desperate to see my main home resort of OKW (have already done a small add on at BCV ) but we won't be getting there now until at least 2005 due to the arrival (all being well) of Baby No. 2 this October. :D

I joined in 93, OKW was the only resort on sale at that time. I've had multiple stays at OKW, HH, Vero, BWV and BCV, tried to get VWL for my upcoming trip ( June 8th-21st) but points were just toooooo expensive so I'm slumming it at OKW :D

Hi all,
We originaly bought 300 points at OKW back in '92, and added another 200 at VB in '95.
I go to WDW every year for a week-long conference, and that was the original motivation: my business partner and I both bought points at OKW (Boardwalk wasn't open at that time).

We have atwo-bed in the boardwalk now each year, plus we holiday in Florida every other year.

This year, for the first time, we have points over, so we are renting them out over on the main board.
