This Labor Day will be our 6th annual WDW vacation and we're now seriously considering the DVC. We've heard a little of information here and there, and we are trying to do the math and see if it's really for us or not. Our typical WDW vacations are 7 nights, once a year, in a moderate resort. We would consider taking a 2nd vacation to another DVC location within a calendar year if the point system and costs would allow. Starting in 2013, we will count as a group of 5 instead of 4 (1 senior, 2 adults, 8 year old, 3 year old)... I have a few straight forward questions, and welcome additional information!1) As a DVC member, do I get a discount on the dining plan? I understand that the DVC rooms come with a kitchenette that we would use for breakfasts and evening snacks, but while we're in the parks, we want to enjoy them- and that includes the character dining experiences that we like, too! 2) As a DVC member, do I get any park ticket discounts? 3) Explain again about the 'home resort' concept- if we buy into, say, Bay Lake Towers, we can always opt to stay at one of the other DVC locations like at Animal Kingdom, right? Does it just cost more points to stay at a DVC location that's not your 'home resort'? Sorry- it's been a while since we last looked into this (about a year) and we are just pulling the information back out again. Any information is welcomed as we're trying to make sure this makes financial sense for us right now.
