Wife and and I are looking into DVC. We like to go for a week every year in October. The past 2 years we have rented points. We have decided that we want to be DVC members and want our home resort to be CC.

We are considering purchasing direct 110 points. To book by the 11 month window if we decide to purchase next week, how long does the process take?

One or two days until you have your points, the paperwork comes later. Of course you have to live in a jurisdiction where DVD is licensed to sell to you at home.

Another question can we buy any amount of points? I know that it costs 107 points for a week in October. Can i buy exactly 107 points?

    I wouldn't buy just the points needed according to today's chart. While the number of points at the resort doesn't change, points and seasons can be reallocated. You will be better off with +10% or so, or about 125 points.

    The one caveat about your plan is that it's a popular one.

    As has been the case with the last three new WDW resorts (VGF, PVB, and CCV) lot of owners are buying smaller contracts with the intention of staying exclusively in studios. Adventure and Choice seasons cover all of Fall Frenzy - Oct to mid-Jan, which is high DVC season due to the low point costs.

    Compounding the studio availability challenge is the fact that point heavy cabins at CCV (ironically, the often dropped initial in the official acronym CCVC) are a disproportionate representation of he resort’s point totals. Those cabin points are sold in smaller parcels to studio-bound buyers. As the resort approaches sold out, further pressure on availability will especially be felt by owners of contracts that are bound to Adventure/Choice studios due to their contract point totals.

    Have you considered buying a fixed week? That would not only shield you from this pressure, but could protect you from a potential reallocation. It comes at a cost (10% more points and no incentives), but for a studio, it may be worth considering.

    Especially if you'll generally want that studio during Fall Frenzy.
