Why are DVC members paying so much for accomodations? Between the cost of purchasing the points, operating expenses, capital reserve expenses, property tax, etc. you are paying a fortune just for accomodations. That doesn't include air fare, meals, a rental car, entertainment, etc. And then you have to HOPE you can book your trip when you want to go. I don't pay DVC fees, go where I want to go when I want to go, and if where I want to go doesn't have accomodations when I want to go, I don't have to pay them. I can skip it and save the money, I can go somewhere else, I can book it for another time . . . if **I** want to. I just don't see the advantage to the DVC. I think you are all being ripped off. My sister has DVC at OKW with a 350 point plan. If you figure out the income stream from what she spent for the points, it amounts to $1600 a year. When you add the $1100 in additional fees, that's $2600 a year. And what does she get for that? About ten nights in a one bedroom . . . maybe. That's if she booked early enough. She didn't this past year and had to book separate accomodations off Disney. So now she paid for accomodations twice. Such a deal. Like $2700 for ten days was cheap to begin with. Just my 2 cents worth. I don't mean to rain on anyone's parade, but I encourage anyone looking into this plan to look into it VERY CAREFULLY before committing any money.
