We are owners at BLT, AKV and Aulani. Went to see the Marriott next door just for fun during our Aulani visit this week. Aulani is 100% better however we did learn with Marriott Vacation Club there is no 50 year ownership. It is forever! Also you can roll you points for one year like Disney but if you still don't use them in year two, you can convert them to Marriott Reward points that never expire! WOW! Two very big things to consider when we go to add points in 2012.
