    BLT is $4.50/pt and VGF is $5.41/pt in dues for 2013. I think you have last year's dues for BLT and VGC (Grand Californian, not Floridian).

    We have been exploring the structure of the current Florida/South Carolina/Tennessee timeshare economy for exactly this reason. I have a big family as well as a network of tight-knit friends across four continents. I like the idea of being able to have vacation options available for them that cost me little. Since my wife and I are in our 40s and (unfortunately) childless, we have some financial freedom in this regard. Florida and the beaches of South Carolina are where we like to go (along with Cedar Point) while Pigeon Forge is close to where we are so friends/family can visit there while we meet them to hang out for the day. The back door into DVC is why I mentioned it (well, elaborated upon it) here as a viable option. I fully appreciate that solution will not work for most people here but for those who want to explore other alternatives, it is something to consider.

    If choosing between VGF and BLT, I'd probably pick VGF.

    I do like that you can walk from BLT to MK, but that isn't a real high priority.

    Since I already have BLT, I will buy VGF but I am not in love with VGF so if I really wanted to buy direct, I will save my money for now and wait for Poly.

    Anything other that brand new resorts, I will most likely buy resale.

    It depends how flexible you are. If very flexible buy SSR resalse. Otherwise, buy where you want to stay.

    If that was the only choice it would be BLT for me . Otherwise AKL would be my first choice .
