We rented points last year and stayed at AK. We took the DVC tour and really wanted to buy, but it was just beyond our budget. So now I'm thinking of buying resale and dreaming of how to make it work. My first question is which DVC resorts offer rooms that accomodate larger groups? My family alone is about to be 6, and we will probably often travel with my sister and parents. I've read that you should choose a home resort that you wouldn't mind staying in in case it's hard to get a room, so a home resort that can accomodate us is a must. Next question is what is exactly lost in buying resale instead of direct? And lastly, how is the payment of resale different from buying direct? I'm assuming you pay the yearly dues to Disney in the same way. Do you finance the initial point cost in the same way? I'm guessing it doesn't go through Disney. What else do I need to know to plan this out?
