    I heard if I buy resale I can't use my points towards a cruise or Adventures By Disney(which is fine for our family) but can I still use it for Aulani or Vero Beach?

    Yes, and what you mention as things you "lose" with a resale are SO expensive, pointwise, that you might never even be able to use points for them, anyway. Especially ABD. VERY expensive.

    yeah, before you consider this a limitation, definitely take a look at the per-person point charts for the costs for ABD and cruises.

    if you buy resale, you still have the option of trading out of the DVC system through RCI for other timeshares. but the best value is at the DVC resorts, including HHI, hawaii, and vero beach.

    Here is the News item as it was posted to the member website:

    The Disney Collection refers to any Disney Resort around the world and any Disney cash resort at WDW and DLR.

    HOWEVER, you should know that all this is subject to availability.

    Last month we had a very disappointed member who had promised his daughter (or son?) an Aulani trip for their honeymoon - at seven months, there wasn't anything available that met his requirements. Now, he wanted June, with is apparently prime time for Hawaii. Grand Californian is notoriously difficult to book if you don't own there. BLT Standard is almost never available to those that don't own there, BWV Standard a little more often. Right now Grand Floridian is very difficult to get at seven months - its a new resort, it might get easier - or it might stay really hard. Hilton Head and Vero Beach can be difficult to book if you don't own there in the Summer or over Spring Break.

    The clause "subject to availability" is kind of a big catch. You may discover you have incredibly good luck with "subject to availability" or you may be very disappointed. Its a matter of what you are looking for, when you are looking for it, and luck.
