We bought BLT 240 points in July 2010

We reckoned we should get the points up front to give us plenty of options and flexibility with accommodations and times. We can't wait till July 2011 when we do a week at akv savannah view and a week at BLT. It's been worth it already just for the daily daydream factor!

Please add us to the list .... Colin Judith Andrew and Claire.

I'm a little late to the party, as it's a few months since I bought - I own at BLT. I still can't quite believe I've done it as altough I've been planning to buy in since I was at university, I wasn't actually planning on doing it this last trip! I feel so lucky though as from the moment it was announced it was my dream resort and I'm so excited to be going "home" for the first time this March

Sounds like us! We weren't planning on buying last time round - but how can you resist owning a bit of 'The Mouse"?
It's certainly helped the 'end of holiday blues' knowing that we would be coming back for the next xx years!

Thanks Hilary...

...I can't quite what we have signed up for either, Tink! I had never even heard of DVC until my curiosity got the better me while waiting on the female side of the family visiting the loo (again...) and had a browse through the DVC booth in tomorrow land mk.

I'm the worlds biggest cynic, hate sales people and had previously dismissed timeshare for all the right reasons. My first question to the poor guy at the booth was...so how much does this all cost then? My reaction to the 'about a minimum of twelve thousand pounds' answer was 'yeah...right'! But the guy was so measured, polite, comprehensive and enthusiastic in qualifying why, I wanted to know more. I liked the way he provided us with incentives and opportunities to visit the DVC centre at ssr. The kids loved the idea of the super fast passes!

Interestingly, later that day was the first time we were aware that BLT even existed, as we passed by on the monorail. It wasn't there on our last visit five years ago!

I must say I was extremely pleased by the way we were treated at the DVC visitor centre...like VIPs ....they know what they are doing, don't they??

We got the clearest, most detailed, unpressured and balanced explanation of how it all worked from a very nice chap called David Millar at DVC. He was happy to allow us to go and consider it, even as I was reluctant at first, and he probably had me down as a no. But after three days thinking, I took the bull by the horns, went back in and signed up for BLT, and for a good bit more than the minimum. Why? Because for that little bit more you can get two weeks from the UK at virtually any resort without having to juggle points (unless you're going for an absolute blow out one year!).

We haven't been yet...it's July 2011 for our first visit to BLT and AKV Kidani. The anticipation value we have experienced since September is worth the money alone!!

I've been away for a few days, so apologies for taking a while to do it (this seems to be a bit of a recurring theme/excuse of mine! )
