I am trying to decide if DVC membership is something for us. Some background we are a family of five DH, myself and our 3 dds ages 15, 14 and 2. I have always loved everything Disney and had the opportunity to visit Disneyland many times as a child, teen and young adult as my grandfather (now deceased) lived in California. Fast forward to 2005 when for the first time DH and I took our 2 dds to WDW and what I thought would be a once in a lifetime trip turned into 8 trips to WDW (some without DH ), 3 Disney cruises, a stay at Disneys Vero Beach (combined with a cruise) and a trip to DLR. We have stayed at Value, Moderate and Deluxe resorts. I really enjoyed our last true visit (including park time) in 2011 to WDW staying at AKL and fell in love with the Deluxe experience. After our Fantasy cruise last year we did a night at POP (which I had enjoyed in the past) before flying home and not to be a resort snob I just couldnt see myself staying there again. This year we didnt do any Disney related trips, DH and I did a couples trip to New Orleans and we did a family trip to a resort in Jamaica which was nice but I found myself suffering from Disney withdrawl lol. When given the choice of another Disney cruise or WDW for our next trip in March dds unanimously chose WDW. Now DH is less of a Disney fan/freak as the rest our family but he does appreciate the Disney brand and is always comparing (especially the customer service) the experiences hes had at Disney when we go elsewhere he is often disappointed and complains that they dont do things like Disney. On the purchase of a DVC he is more on the fence as we initially contemplated purchasing a vacation home in Florida (we are Canadian) but decided that we really go to Florida to Disney and would miss out on staying on property. Now with another little girl in tow DH has resigned himself to the fact that we will be continuing to do more vacationing at WDW and once our older dds have children I can see us bringing grandchildren as well. Being a family of five soon our youngest dd will count in the room so I started thinking perhaps DVC would be the way to go instead of having to get two rooms or pay a ridiculous price for a suite. DH though is still not sure about purchasing a piece of the mouse. Now I have been researching purchasing DVC for a while now and am a little overwhelmed with all the information. I am leaning toward resale probably at SSR (which we dont have a problem staying atthough it would also be nice to try other resorts) which seems like the best bang for your buck right now and seems to have lower yearly fees. We would most likely to go to WDW in March or August so not sure of use year?? We did rent points (privately though someone on the DIS) once to stay at Vero Beach and enjoyed it so that got the wheels turning about a DVC purchase. I know this is long winded and I appreciated anyone who takes the time to read this as I am just trying to figure out if purchasing DVC makes sense for my family. Any advice or insight would be greatly appreciated.
