    Congrats! We also decided to buy! We're probably going to use our incentive points to trade into II.

    There are also forums here on the Dis that are dedicated to DVC, if you want some actual owner feedback. We have been DVC members since 1999 and have never regretted buying in (only not doing it sooner).

    OP, welcome home, and hope you enjoy the rest of your trip.:goodvibes

    I apologise in advance for the rudeness of my ??? but I've been thinking DVC for a long time and am wondering approximately how much was the down payment? I would probably buy into AKL as I love that resort but can not afford to stay there normally. Thank you for any answer you may provide!

    This is a hot button issue Michelle, and many different answers. Disney does offer financing at all different types of plans. When we purchased (8 years ago) at BCV's we put down 1/2 and financed through our bank for the other half. Along with that you also have annual maintence dues.
    The reason why this is a hard question is of course some people feel dvc and disney deluxes are not worth the money, some folks think it is not good to go into debt for a luxury item.

    My best advice is to talk to a guide (salesperson). Disney is very low key, I was not pushed in any way. In fact after I took my tour, it was 2 years before we actually brought.

    Also you don't have to buy from disney, there are many dvc's sold (resale)at the timeshare store from individuals at a much cheaper price.

    We did get incentives - we got 200 points for SSR to use by 9/16/09 so we are going to suprise IL's with a family trip - us & them in August 2009 and then suprise my parents with a trip for us & them in 2010 for Nov's Jersey Week.
