My husband and I are saving to buy a resale contract. I'm 11 weeks pregnant, which puts a dent into our savings plan (for the best of reasons!), but having our first child also increases our desire to own DVC. We know it'll happen, we just don't know if having a baby will postpone the plan for a year. We are both teachers, but we have 2 weeks off every Christmas. Our primary travel time would be part of the premiere seasons - just after Christmas through New Year's, and then 4-5 days the first week of January when things become quiet. We hate the heat, so it's unlikely we would visit during the summer. We might go during spring break sometimes, but the heat killed us then on our last trip (mid-90s and humid - bleh). Our primary consideration when thinking about which property we would like is the expiration year. BLT is 2060 and AKV is 2057, which would give us Disney vacations until I'm nearly 80 - yay! Here are some of my questions.. Is there any word on whether the contracts expiring in 2042 will be increased for a price? I would love to consider other properties, but 2042 only gets me to age 64, and that's just not enough Disney for my lifetime. Since we will be traveling during the busiest times of the year, I was wondering if transportation at AKV will be a problem, since there are only buses there? Would 1 resort be better than the other during Christmas week? Since we'll mostly be traveling at the busiest times of the year, would we have much of a chance of getting a 1 bedroom or even a studio at our non-home resort at 7 months out? We would like to try some of the other resorts, such as BWV, BCV, and both of the 2 properties we are already considering. We like the theming at AKV much more than at BLT, but in your opinion, does access to the monorail make up for that?
