We're considering taking the plunge. We visit Disney every year during Christmas - well, close to every year during Christmas. We decided in 2013/2014 we will visit again for Christmas and NYE, and in 2014 we will visit for Easter. This brought upon some new questions. My parents have always wanted real estate down south. We're from NY, and would love a place down in Florida. DVC has always been an option. We visit there enough (~once a year) to go through with it. So it's between DVC, or taking the total plunge and buying a house in Florida. Orlando is a slight option, while other areas within travel distance of Disney are also options. For people with DVC - how difficult is it to get Christmas? How about Easter? How would you compare DVC vs. owning a house in the area? The downfall is that I don't believe we'd actually live in Orlando or near Disney - just in traveling distance.
