    New AP Special?

    Interesting. I read on the Dis somewhere that they got AP's for free for the first few years. I promise I didn't make that up. lol

    New AP Special?

    When DVC was new they got FREE AP's! Wish that was still a thing!

    ***The Official AKV Owners And Lovers Thread***. Come And Chat

    I"d prefer Savanah view over Club but I don't value club level much. I'd rather see animals from my balcony for a special occasion

    New AP Special?

    $225 price increase is NUTS! $90 for Gold is also insane. We weren't planning to buy until next year but I feel really bad for those buying soon. Plus we didn't hear any sort of increase head up.

    Buying both direct and resale

    I thought the minimum for a NEW member (not one that already owns resale) was 100 minimum buy in. I guess they changed the rules again.

    Predicted DVC booking patterns - Studios & 1-bedrooms (June 2018 Update)

    Thanks for all of this information! One of our home resorts is BWV. We are planning for a September trip in 2020. We are hoping to switch to BCV at 7 months out. We need a studio. So here's my question, which few days do you think will be easier to get a BCV studio at 7 months, Sat-Wed...

    Moonlight Magic Booking: worst experience ever!

    that's what should happen. If your Disney account is linked to your DVC account then it should automatically show up. That just didn't happen for a bunch of people unfortunately.

    Buying both direct and resale

    If you really want the direct benefits buy resale first. It's easier to have Disney match your use year than you trying to find the perfect resale that matches your direct. Also if you buy resale first you'll only need 75 points to become a full fledged member. If you buy direct first you...

    DVC for Annual RunDisney Trip

    Have you considered OKW? It's the cheapest point resort direct at the moment and has 2 actual beds in the studios. So if your sister comes with you, you can each have a real bed. Just an idea. If you're looking for most economical point usage you're going to want BWV, AKV, or OKW I believe.

    DVC availability, points & value help a mom out!

    You can get Boulder Ridge resale points in the $90 range. If you want WL I'd go that route. Copper Creek points just went up to $210 a point so I personally wouldn't buy there direct but you can most likely find a resale there in the $150-$160 range. The least expensive resort to buy direct...

    Cedar Point in Ohio

    We're going end of July and staying at Camp Sandusky. Haven't stayed there before but it looks nice. $65 for two nights (tent) vs. almost $600 at the Breakers.

    I wouldn't pay $118 for AKV, that's a lot past market value right now. Just try again at what you're comfortable with. One will pass eventually. $110 definitely seems about right for AKV. Lots pass at that price.

    Post all SW questions concerns, etc. here...

    Southwest should just eliminate the Max 8's from their schedule. Leave them off the schedule and add them in if/when they get the issues fixed. IMO that's better than having to reschedule everyone's flights over and over.

    I don't know but if you can and only buy 50 now (current minimum add on I believe) you risk them raising the minimum next year (or whenever). When they changed the rule in 2016 25 was the minimum to become direct members.

    you have to buy 75 points now to be considered a direct member. Is OKW the cheapest direct resort? And do they sell you the 2057 expiration?

    Is there DVC Club in your city?

    There is at least one other family at our church that owns DVC. But we don't really talk about it. haha

    TOTW closed July 4th for paid event

    I wish everyone would just refuse to book this event. The way to get DVC to stop doing this stuff is to simply stop booking.
