So, I made the call to DVC today. I was surprised (& saddened) to hear SSR is sold out and not currently available for wait list! My second choice, OKW, is available for wait list but they can't tell me if it will take weeks or months to get my points! AKV has some great incentives, but it still costs more and is so far away from DTD & Epcot, which I frequent. DVC members, what advice can you offer me?

I'm considering 120 points at AKV to take advantage of their incentives while I wait for 50-120 points at OKW. As a new DVC member, would I be overextending myself? - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  991.9 #3 3:55PM
Tiffany, biggest mistake I made was not investing years ago when my wife was trying to convince me to join. I'd do it! - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #18 4:37PM
I have 220 points in AKL and I started with 100 points. I think u should go for AKL.I got 20 additional free points for getting 100 more in AKL. So now I have 220. - yessy  210.6 #38 4:16PM
I think it's a good idea to get your foot in the door. Remember, you can book at any resort other than your home resort, 7 months in advance. Home resort, you can book 11 months out. - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #18 4:25PM
I agree with you jalex ,we have at blt and saratoga and we haven't stayed at saratoga in yrs ,we rarely did but I'm so happy we joined one of the best decisions we have made:) - tracsant  1134.1 #2 4:48PM
Yup that is so true. It is a cool investment - yessy  210.6 #38 4:34PM
My best advice...DO IT!!! Girl, you will be so happy you did*+.*+.*+. - CinderellaPrincess85  194.6 #41 4:50PM
Lots of positive comments about taking advantage of the incentives at AKV! (I knew I came to the right people!) Any thoughts about the wait list at OKW? - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  991.9 #3 4:53PM
U could even go on a cruise and remember u could bank points or borrow points if u don't have enough. - yessy  210.6 #38 5:09PM
OKW rooms have been renovated and the 1 br are huge! It's a laid back resort, usually low points per night and buses aren't crowded! Do that one as well! - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #18 6:21PM
Okw is a very nice resort but my least fave ,its so big and i feel as though I'm in a apt complex than a resort ,and no elevators :) - tracsant  1134.1 #2 7:19PM
Old key west is beautiful I stayed in a 1 bed room 2 years ago. Its very low in points I really like it . It has a homely vibe. - yessy  210.6 #38 5:06PM
Echo Jalex; we bought 400 pts @ BCV in 02 & have yet to stay there simply because we've never booked early enough to get in. Lots of great resorts to choose from & never had much difficulty getting something acceptable @ our time of booking which has never been 11 mos out. One of these days we'll book super early so we can hopefully try BCV. No matter where we stay, every trip has been great. The longer you wait, the higher the price tag. Jump in whenever you're ready; you won't be disappointed! - SueBoo  18.6 #165 5:52PM
We have 330 at Bay Lake. Never stayed there! Only OKW and Saratoga. Go with what you feel comfortable with!! - TangledNdisneY  324.7 #20 6:30PM
You will love DVC, we thought 160 points would be enough for the two of us but we keep running out and really want to add on more points and we have only been members for two years. I think any of those home resorts are good and you should have no problem getting reservations at 7 months for your non-home resort because all of them have so many DVC rooms. Welcome home CDKG! - Andrea84  691.4 #8 9:19PM
We are planning to join...especially since we travel back and fort to wdw and dl - islandgirl58  312.3 #22 10:19PM
Love being members! Have 220 points. Wish we joined years ago. Our home resort is Grand Californian. - Sandy  245.8 #1315 2:08AM
What about buying "used". I sold my share of DVC from the the Beach club villas in less than a week. I'll bet u can find SSR on the preowned market for $90 a point. (or less) People are trying to get out of DVC everyday. - toogrumpy  141.5 #55 11:02AM
here is a site for you for preowned dvc http://www.resalesdvc.com/BUY_DVC_Timeshare/page_1924721.html    i hope this helps - poohbear6382  37.5 #114 11:12AM

Wondering if 8 of you would fit in a sky bucket? 😊 - MelodyMouse  4020.7 #26 7:50PM
If I remember correct - 8 Normal people would never fit. Maybe 8 characters, fuzzy little animals - suzieq65  10.0 #9899 9:04PM
