Hello MW my family and I have gone to WDW 6 times and never thought of joining DVC so instead of google I thought itd be better to ask you guys since some of you are DVC members. What exactly is it and what are pros and cons? Thanks!
DVC is Awesome. You buy points and use them when you want. You can use it at any Disney destination. You can book 11 months Out for your home resort ( the protery you buy at, our is saratoga Speings ) 7 months else where Depending on where you by you can have it up to 50 years. The more points you buy the longer your stay can be based on accommodations. ( studio 1 or 2 bedrooms or tree house vilkas - 5disneylovers  722.2 #6 6:21PM
It's expensive. you don't get any of the advertised discounts as a member ( like the free dining) The house keeping is limited not daily like the hotels. You can deed your timeshare to your children. So much stuff. We are a family of 5 and have 346 point we go once a year We need more points to go more often lol. Hope this help. - 5disneylovers  722.2 #6 6:24PM
http://disneyvacationclub.disney.go.com/about/beyond-timeshare/ You should take a tour which is about an hour give or take. They are not pushy and you'll get fast passes and gift cards for your time. DVC is well worth it for us! - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #16 6:51PM
I just joined a couple months ago and will be going "home" for the first time this October! I have gone to DL or WDW an average of once a year since I was born and did not see that changing anytime soon. I ran the numbers (very important to do) and decided it would work for me. Do your research and run the numbers based on your situation. Only you know if it is a good thing for you. - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  750.4 #4 7:39PM
Thanks everyone! - ariel116  74.2 #70 8:50PM
Please post if you become a DVC member. Yes I agree you have to look at your finances. It's affordable. - 5disneylovers  722.2 #6 9:09PM
