    If you need the points NOW and do not mind paying the premium price to get them, then direct purchase is a viable option. Going direct, the guide will probably be able to help you secure the reservation you want for this summer. That is one more plus for direct.

    We all value our money differently, and we all have different times that we can be more or less flexible in our planning. If direct works for you at this time, then go for it. Happy planning.

    I agree with ELMC (as I do most of the time) that renting this year and buying resale is the way to go. I'm going to assume that BLT is the resort you want to own since that is where you want to stay right now, so these are all BLT numbers, but the same method would work for looking at any other resort.

    Renting: Use any of the brokers and book right now for $13/point.
    Resale: $95/point should get you a contract
    Total Renting + Resale = $108/point

    Direct: $165/point

    Difference between the two options is $57/point. With that $57/point difference you could almost buy another resale contract at SSR, thereby doubling your point.

    yes that makes total sense....I have checked out the rental sites and the average is $12 per point....I am assuming by renting I can make my ressie right away?
    If I buy resale now too, when I go on the trip in August would I be considered an owner or renter since I am using rented points? From reading there seem to be a few things renters don't get.

    Also do DVC resale people get magical express too? :hyper:

    Thanks again!!!

    Yes, when you rent you make your reservation in real time. There are plenty of renters to choose from in the rent/trade board or you can choose one of the sponsors of this site, either The Timeshare Store or Daddio (David's vacation rentals). If you have your membership card you are considered to be an owner.

    Out of curiosity...what is it that you think that renters don't get?

    Both DVC resale owners and people who rent reservations are eligible for Disney's Magical Express. I book DME reservations for my renters all the time.

    One thing that owners get that renter do not is free video rentals from the community hall, all you have to do is show your member card to get the free rental. We've actually used that just about every trip.

    Sure seems that renting is the way to go. I am in the process of buying a BLT and at the same time trying to schedule a summer vacation. I'm going to look into renting now and then reselling my points to the rental company to partially recoup. It wont be a complete wash but would be better than waiting till March to try to schedule.

    Hi there, for those of you who have purchased resale...do you get an difference in service from Disney. Do they tend to stick their nose up at you since you didnt purchase from them? I would imagine though with disney they would treat you just like any other DVC member. Any bad experiences? Thanks!!
