Disney obsessed DVC Member/AP holder
- Feb 25, 2011
I agree 100%. If you love Aulani, and plan on going there at least some of the time, then absolutely. But just buying there for SAP, no way. We have OKW that we use for SAP, but we always book it and then try and switch at 7 months. But ultimately I would be fine if we had to stay there. We just bought Polynesian for the 11 month since that seems to be harder to get than it used to be and it’s our favorite. If everyone that keeps buying the beach resorts buys for SAP, 7 month window will get harder and harder and then what? If you can’t get anything at disney and that’s what people are buying for, those are going to be hard to resell too Just my opinion…But the resort is on the ocean, and will require more and more maintenance over time, meaning the dues will probably rise at a higher percentage than other WDW resorts. Personally, I wouldn’t buy a resort on the other side of the world for SAP, foregoing the 11 month advantage with a home resort where you’ll almost never need it. That said, Aulani is sensational, so I’m sure you’ll enjoy it.
