    This is our experience / analysis which may be different from others.

    I have been going to DW since the day it opened. My family (of 4) have made yearly treks there since since 1997. We stayed in Moderates and eventually moved to Deluxe resorts. In 2013 we finally bought into DVC resale. I am not convinced buying direct saves you any money (if you shop for specials and promotions). We thought about it for years. I do believe that buying resale will save you money in about year 8. So, for us ... if it weren't for resale we would not be DVC members.

    The second major thing was previously covered but I wanted to add emphasis. Once you visit DW a dozen times lets say your resort becomes more important. With adult kids that grew up with Disney we don't do too many commando park days anymore. So the resort becomes half or more of the vacation. We think BCV is the best overall resort with BWV being a close second due to the boardwalk and walking access to Epcot and Hollywood Studios.

    Good luck with your decision.

    Disney sell direct to anyone in the UK, you just can't use Disney finance unless you buy in Orlando. uK is one of the few places outside the US they can sell direct to.

    That is a wise choice given the circumstance. Enjoy your membership.

    My first choice would have been BCV but looking ahead my two DD's prefer being nearer DTD so we decided on SRS. We have gone for 200 points which will, hopefully, allow us some flexibility and of getting BVC at the 7month window. We don't and won't travel peak times so we are hoping 200 points are enough.

    Very nice choice. We also love being near DTD and SSR cannot be beat for that. Plus SSR has a longer contract life and lower dues. Hopefully you can get into BCV at 7 months but if you can't there are lots of other great places to stay. :goodvibes

    I also agree that's a good choice! If you don't get into BCV right away in the 7-month window you can try to waitlist.
