Call me crazy but when my friend sent me the information (because I was considering buying more points but through resale) I read it as anyone who buys resale after 1/19/19 at any of the original resorts can only stay at them by exchanging their points - something similar to when a DVC person wants to exchange to use RCI. Please tell me I'm wrong...Beginning January 19, anybody who purchases a resale contract for one of the 14 original Disney Vacation Club resorts will be limited to staying at those resorts.
That means that anybody who buys a resale contract after January 19 would not be able to use their points to stay at Disney’s new Riviera Resort or at the new Reflections- A Disney Lakeside Lodge at Walt Disney World or future DVC properties.
Once sales for the Riviera Resort begin, those who purchase a contract for that resort on the resale market will be limited to staying only at that resort.
I'm an original owner at SSR and figured I'd go resale because it's cheaper and I already have the perks as an original owner.
