Thinking about buying into DVC..how many points do most of yall have..at first we wanted to get around 260...but after looking around at prices I'm thinking 100 points...we have a Wyndham timeshare so we will use the Disney one every other year...

Did you already talk with the representative? They will let you know how many points you need for the time you want to stay. As well as how many people that are staying. We have 350 points. We have a family of 5 stay in a 1 bedroom. Studios sleeps 4 so we could not stay in a studio. You can look at the point char for this year from resale. http://www.resalesdvc.com/DVC_2013_Point_Charts/page_2489184.html - 5disneylovers  1165.8 #6 2:39PM
Thanks for the site!!! We talked to someone earlier today..he said 100 would be good for us now... - dxcmama  360.1 #25 6:38PM
Cool - 5disneylovers  1165.8 #6 6:39PM
Very good investment I think - 5disneylovers  1165.8 #6 6:40PM
We looked into it, but are not DVC. Just do your research, you'll figure out what's best for you. We go every year during value season (except this year) and we were going to do 125. It's rather easy to add more points if need be. - DizneyGirl  979.3 #8 2:40PM
It all depends on how long you want to stay and what type of accommodation. I started with 150 and added several times I have 470 now. i do like to go every year. Prices were a little cheaper when I started. - Pooh147856  384.1 #23 2:41PM
I'm a dvc member since 2008 I started with 100 and I got 20 free points now I have 220 points in animal kingdom lodge. I like going every year we r a family of 4. - yessy  238.7 #39 2:48PM
We started off with 150...but its only my husband and I... - islandgirl58  463.2 #19 2:51PM
Our home resort it's blt...will be staying there for the first time in nov...10 days in blt, and the rest if our 11 days in dolphin... - islandgirl58  463.2 #19 2:52PM
going for 21 days?! Awesome! - ariel116  103.7 #70 3:19PM
I wish we learned about it sooner, we've been going for 10 years now and never really looked into it. Now in hindsight we realized it definitely would have been worth it. But its getting too late with all the kids going to college. - ariel116  103.7 #70 3:46PM
Never to late you and your husband can stil use it. - Pooh147856  384.1 #23 4:19PM
Wish we had known about it earlyer in life . Not worth it for us now . - skcanfield  586.4 #14 4:14PM
Yea same here! We thought about it a lot in the past and never made the time to check it out - mmddgp  1092.5 #7 4:16PM
Same here... 10 years ago, I would have totally bought into it!! - mrsincredible  1323.7 #4 4:42PM
It all depends on how long or often you want to go. We have 200 points and go twice a year with those. Once during peak and once during value season. Just meet with your guide and they can help you figure out how many you need. I wish we had bought ours sooner! - luvthemouse  279.1 #1111 5:30PM
Me too - 5disneylovers  1165.8 #6 6:33PM
Thanks everybody!!!! We are still looking around..maybe a resale might be good..we are a family of 5 going for a week every other year..Looks like a 100 maybe good to start with.. - dxcmama  360.1 #25 6:34PM
ESP if you go every other year. You bank the year you do not go. The following year you'll have 200 points to use. - 5disneylovers  1165.8 #6 6:41PM
I bought 170 points. I'm single with no children, so studio villas meet my needs. With 170 points I can visit WDW & DL every year if I so choose! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1453.0 #3 7:33PM

What percentage saving are we looking at for being MouseWaiters? Is it better than a AAA discount.  - MoChuck  159.1 #2631 3:57PM
Hi @@@@@@Admin I filled out the form for 2/28 at Hojo and haven't seen any Credits. I also sent you a Support Ticket last week. Would you please look into this? As always, Thanks  @@@@@@Admin - Winnie111286  18248.9 #3 10:50PM
