    Hi,
    I'm wondering if there is already a thread going listing Canadian only DVC members?
    I've recently bought into the AKV and would like to know how many of us there are from the "frozen north" who prefer to spend our vacation time with Mickey!
    I know of a thread on the DVC forums asking for DIS DVC members to count themselves. As Canadians we may have different issues that come up. It may be helpful to have a list of Members that are in the same boat, or at least the same country for us new DVC Members to lean on? Just a thought!
    Thanks for reading,
    Shayne

    Welcome Home! My issue is not only Canadian related.... addonitis is something all DVC'ers have to deal with at one point or another... Really wish I could afford more points! Or justify it :rolleyes1

    Welcome Home! (Though I guess they'll just say Jambo at AKV).

    I have to admit, my next case of addonitis is likely going to be treated by an AKV purchase as well. Enjoy DVC, I know we really do!

    We bought DVC in 2005 and have had two DVC vacations. First one was at BWV and second at SSR. They were both by far the best Disney vacations we have ever had. We are so happy to have invested into DVC and look forward to buying more points some day.....:cheer2: WELCOME HOME:cheer2:

    We bought a resale VWL in summer of 2005 and have already been to SSR, OKW, BCV, VWL and DL on points. 2 other trips on tap. Definitely will be adding on at some point, maybe when kid #2 appears.

    We bought a resale at HHI last year and have already been hit by addonitis twice, once at SSR and once at AKV. We had 4 contracts but just sold our original HHI. We love our DVC and it is one of the best decisions we have made for our families future enjoyment.

    We love our DVC and as corney as the adds may sound....we too"wish we had done it sooner". We have used our DVC to the max, I have borrowed so many points, my sister ( also a memeber) has transferred points to me and now I am adding on more points.

    I think as canadians the "yanks" don't appreciate the exchange rate that we have to pay and the major expedition to "get down there"

    We recently stayed at HHI and loved it and will return. Flying from Buffalo is the best bet ( if you are not driving) but I always laugh to myself when I hear of people "driving 7 hours just to get there!!!" ( dont we wish)

    welcome.

    Your right :thumbsup2

    Its not cheap to fly with a family to get down there so we try to have enough pts for at least 10 - 12 days. This year we are going for 16 :cloud9:
    I cant wait...too bad its not until Jan !

    Hey, can anyone help with adding on points? I'm live in Sask so I had to purchase into the AKV while in Florida on my last trip. My question is now that I'm a member can I add-on points from home or do I still have to be in Florida.
    Thanks,
    Shayne

    Count us in on the Canucker list.

    WE love disney and are brainwashing our daughter (18 mths) already :thumbsup2

    we purchased 210 at AKV and can't wait until next year when we can book our first DVC trip.


    I guess the only problem I have so far is the financing we get as Canadians. I am not impressed that just because we don't live in the US and therefore don't have a credit score in the US we get standard rates.

    so we'll be taking out a personal loan next year and paying it off and get the lower rates here - plus we won't be subject to the flexing dollar.

    other then that - we're good to go. :woohoo: :banana: :cheer2:

    Very Very likely you can only add-on while in Florida. We are in Manitoba, and we can only add on while in Florida. The only province I know of that can add on from home is Ontario, and that is because the population, and the number of people they have buying, warrents them to do the proper real estate registration thing. Sorry.
