Hello, We are considering a DVC purchase. I am in the beginning research phase. Resorts I am considering are BWV, BCV, BLT, and WLV. We are a family of 4. Me, two boys ages 7 and 3, and DH. We plan on annual WDW trips for the foreseeable future. I could also see myself going solo or just DH and I when kids are grown. Our most recent trip got me thinking about DVC. The room rate for our 10 day split stay was about $5k for the room alone. I would be ideally looking for a resale contract that would allow our 10 day annual stay without having to borrow points in peak season for most likely a one bedroom. How many trips would I have to take before coming out "ahead"? How do I know it's worth it? It's a little scary to me to make this type of investment when the future is so uncertain. What if my boys get bored with Disney in the next couple of years? How did you finally decide that DVC was a better option rather than just booking a regular room? I plan on renting points in the foreseeable future to see which resort I would like, although technically I have stayed at BWI, and CR. the most important factors to me are more location, as well as amenities of the resort rather than the rooms themselves. I would like to purchase in the next year, to start the clock on the savings we might benefit from as opposed to booking our room through Disney.com. Our next trip is May 2015. Thanks!
