I went to a DVC meeting (not sure what they are called) but the Cast member told me that with us only being a family of 3 it might not be worth it, cuz the special offers would be better for us but......... Ok here is our family I have 2 older kids ages 25 and 24 (they have pretty much gone every year of their life too, often a few times a year) DH has 2 older kids ages 26 and 20 Together we have DS age 4. When DS (4) was born we said that we would go n a Disney trip every single year of his life. My older kids go with us on occasion, they love disney as much as we do. in 2013 my older kids went with us to DLR in cali, they are also going with us on our trip to WDW in November. DH older kids not some much, his DD has never gone and DS has gone once. We also love DCL What do you think? Would it be worth it? I also have a hard time understanding the monthly dues, and to be honest I would probably by from Resale rather then Disney (just looks cheaper) thanks *****Edited and added info**** We rented points from a someone and stayed at AKL, loved it. In the past I worked for Alaska Air, so we were annual pass holders for DLR so that is why we went to DLR so much. But honestly the last two trips to DLR was just crazy, the 2 parks were way to crowded and it just made it not very enjoyable. I think we will probably got to WDW almost every year, no plans next year to go to DLR but maybe in 2015. I have heard that DCL was a good option for using points for. Is it better to buy from Disney? If so why?
