We joined in 2008. It was our first trip with our son, who was 2-1/2 at the time. We knew at that time that we wanted years of Disney trips in our collective lives. My DBIL and DSIL had been owners since the early years of OKW, so from their experience, we knew it would be a good fit for us. We bought AKV direct, although BLT was an option. We were drawn to the decor and feel of AKV, so it was a done deal. Kidani was not yet opened, and there were some good incentives at the time to purchase direct. Since then, we have more than doubled our original purchase with resale points at AKV. We look forward to many more years of long, memorable Disney vacations!
