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  773.6 #5 5:39PM
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  546.4 #9 5:40PM
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  163.3 #46 5:41PM
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  185.1 #39 5:48PM
We started off with 150...but its only my husband and I... - islandgirl58  251.7 #25 5:51PM
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  98.3 #62 6:46PM
Wish we had known about it earlyer in life . Not worth it for us now . - skcanfield  467.9 #12 7:14PM
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  133.5 #2787 8:30PM
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  231.9 #29 9:34PM
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  800.7 #3 10:33PM
