I think you misunderstood me sorry. I like Riviera. A lot actually. I'm in the process of buying Riviera or Copper Creek. I was only saying I wouldn't buy Riviera at such a high price Resale. If you want Riviera buy Direct or wait till its a lot lower resale. Riviera is a very very nice resort.well -- for one -- some people like the location of the riviera, given access to the skyliners. The only comparables for the location (in DVC) would be BWV or BCV.
Secondly -- RIV is much better appointed than BCV or BWV -- and it has better room layout with better views than either BCV or BWV.
Not to mention -- 50 years vs 22 years of availability.
So for anyone looking for an Epcot resort, RIV is a good option.
Poly can also act as an Epcot resort...and it has the advantage of being an MK resort as well, with its proximity to the TTC -- but it has the problem of no 1BR or 2BR units (yes -- bungalows are 2BRs technically -- but they are more expensive than GVs).
yes -- if you buy L14 you can stay at BWV or BCV -- but good luck getting a room during those hard to get times. You're at the whim of the 7 month availability and that is slim pickings for much of the year...at least with studios or 2BRs.
If you're good with 1BRs, then I could see a very good case for SSR resale as a substitute.
