Earning My Ears

Considering DVC purchase and wanted to get any perspective on the best home resort for a 2 Dad family with 2 kids (girl 7 and boy 3). Considering Aluani but fairly open
Good point and I think even at this age of 7 & 3 we feel more comfortable going on vacation with a 2 bedroom, this would allow both kids to sleep in different areas and Dads to have their own private room.I feel you would be comfortable at any resort. The big factor is what size room you are looking for. If you think you want to purchase just enough points for a studio or 1 bedroom you need to ask yourself how long your kids will be ok sharing a bed as well as how difficult it will be for 2 parents and 2 future pre-teens/teens/adults to share a bathroom.
I love to golf so I think we are going to start at SSR. Figure we can always use the DVC points at other resorts as we’ll also be looking for 2BR. The SSR recently renovated 2BRs are super nice.If you plan to keep your DVC for a long time, think about when the kids are older. We bought at BLT because of the extra bathroom in the 1BR and 2BR. We also like the short walk to MK. We always stay in a minimum of a 1BR but most often stay in a 2BR.
When we do stay at other DVC resorts, we choose Kidani most often (again, for the extra bathroom). We have also stayed at OKW, BC, SSR, GF and Poly but found we keep returning to either BLT or Kidani.
Ultimately, buy where you love to stay. Everyone says that because it's true.
Aulani has Aunty's Beach House which is included in the cost of your stay, they have a few upcharge events as well.That's really good to know. Does Aluani have kids care?
I'm leaning towards buying something like 300 points at SSR and then booking into 2br villas across all DVC properties. I think for this trip coming up Dec 31 - Jan 7 might look for someone renting points to try out the DVC experience.
I was going to ask whether golf was important if so SSR is your resort, Now you could try for THV the treehouse villa's which are also part of SSR but are AMAZING for adults and 10x so for kids and they are very private as well. A THV is techincally a 2BR but in feel lots closer to a GV.I love to golf so I think we are going to start at SSR.
