    Oh, you want a different use year. Last I heard it was December. Are they into August already? That was a fast jump!

    Count me as on the fence!

    So many questions in my head
    Will I like DVC resorts (especially SSR) enough to forgo future trips to the Poly, WL(main resort) etc. (I have never seen it in person)
    Will I be able to get ressies in HH for easter break at the 7 month window?
    How many points?
    What about splitting points between DVC resorts.

    The amount of information on these boards is both a blessing and a curse :laughing:

    I'm not sure what there hours are but my guide always leaves his cell phone number on his message. Do you have a guide yet? PM me and I'll give you his name and number. If you need a referral too let me know.

    We are looking at signing up in the next day or two also, but we were told $91.00/pt. How did you get the $86.00/pt figure?

    You can only get the $86/pt with a DVC member referral. You can use us if you wish. I PMed you with some info.

    Thanks, and good luck..........:goodvibes

    SSR is very nice. It's so peaceful and a very beautiful grounds, only to get better as the landscape matures. If you like the Poly though for its convenience to MK than SSR is not in very close proximity.

    I'm not well versed with HH, sorry
    Well, to figure that out you need to look at your vacation habits. Figure out what room size would you book (studio, 1, 2 or 3 bedroom), what time of year and weekday/weekend since point values change. There is a link here to a points calculator that may help with that or discuss it with your guide and see what they may recommend. If yu end up going with a large contract I would suggest breaking it into smaller ones so you don't have all your eggs in one basket should you ever need/want to sell them off. [/Quote]
    You can buy reslaes at othe resorts either through Disney (may have to wait for something to become availabe) or buy a resale.

    I agree!

    If I call today to get the ball rolling will they still honor the F&F rate even if all the paperwork is not complete and may not be complete by 1/20?

    As long as you give the initial $500. deposit, yes.

    Yes, you will be fine. All they need is a small deposit to get things started, via credit card if you wish.....

    We signed up for 200 pts this past Saturday and chose August as our UY. We're in the midst of planning how to use/bank our '06 pts now. :banana:
