Resales have been around since shortly after DVC began and, until March, 2011, members who purchased via resale were treated the same as those who purchased direct. Those who purchased resale after March, 2011 have some restrictions regarding what non-DVC options are available to them, but currently still have access to all DVC resorts as well as the World Passport collection. If DVD should decide to further restrict points acquired via resale, it is within their ability to do so and they could make those restrictions retroactive even though they grandfathered all resale purchases prior to March 21, 2011. (I would personally be shocked if any prior changes were retroactively removed just due to the negative response from those members affected who purchased in good faith at the time.) Whether more restrictions are added to resale purchases and whether any resale purchases will be grandfathered is fodder for speculation but those with any real knowledge of this have made no announcement. In early 2011, there was some advance announcement of the situation but even that is not guaranteed going forward. While it is fun to speculate what Disney might do in the future, until they formally announce and implement any change, nothing is official and could be changed. DVC history is filled with announcements regarding resort development, programs, perks, etc that have never come to be part of the program. Resorts at Newport Beach, CA, NYC and even at WDW have been announced in the past (including artist renderings and press releases) and later withdrawn. There have been announcements at the DVC Annual Meeting about programs (like a VIP program) that have never been implemented. As members all we can embrace at any given moment is what programs, perks, and even resorts are available at that moment because all of that could change (and has in the past) with one piece of mail from DVC to announce a change - typically described as a "program enhancement". Stay tuned.
