Wow! How often do you go? I would love to have all those points. Heck, i'd be happy with one contract! lol

Want the current Toy Story Mania wait time? Just
We only 210 points at AKV bought in late 2008. They were going to begin selling BLT within weeks but we knew it wasn't for us. SSR didn't seem to be the right fit for our family. We have never regretted it! We have stayed at BCV (love the convenience to Epcot), Kidani twice, and BLT. Staying at Jambo House in December. I think I would like to try a studio at OKW for our next trip to save on some points but have a little extra room for the four of us.

When and if they begin selling contracts at the GF, I am in!!!!

I put a contract on a 25 point SSR (resale) contract last week (for under $2k including closing costs). I'm just waiting for ROFR to go through. I'm buying primarily for the DVC perks. We'll save $400 or $500 per year just from the AP discounts.

We own at Animal Kingdom and bought in August 2008 with a December UY. We intended to buy OKW but the deal for AK was so good, we did that instead and I'm glad we did because we absolutely love Kidani. We have stayed at OKW (love it! both 1BR and Studio), SSR (1BR -- liked it -- the best part was the neighbor in the studio -- it was Keri!) and Kidani. We have stayed at Pop, Sports, Poly, Coronado and Beach Club too but in regular resort rooms.

I would love to buy a 40 point contract (because we have a 100 and a 60) so the points would be equal for the kids if something happened to us. I am sure I could get one on resale and probably should especially considering I am out of points until 12/1/2012!

Am I the first one here who owns points at Hilton Head (or did I miss it?). Besides the 150 points we own there, we own 210 at OKW, and 100 at BVV. We started in 2002 with 175 points at VWL, but found other resorts we loved, and couldn't keep them all. So VWL is no more for us. And the person who bought our 25 points at VWL was making his first DVC purchase-an owner of 25 points.

150 points SSR August UY since 2005.

Jonesing for another 50 -100 points at SSR. Now that we have DD, we'd like the option of getting a 1 BR, going more frequently, or going during seasons that cost more points (or some combination of the 3). Anymore, I don't see any math that makes buying direct a better deal than buying resale. Not that it matters. We have no $ for either, lol.

I'm jonesing for more points for the same reason. I think just an extra 100 would get us to 1 BR for our trips.

I've been struggling with waiting to see what the next DVC that starts to sell versus buying AK or one of the Epcot resorts. Resale points are calling to me too.

We have a small 100 point contract that we purchased direct at AKV in 2009. I have to say that we really try to make the most of our points. We are a small family; just me, DH and DD (age 5) so for now a studio works just fine for us. We are headed down Oct 5-11 and trying out OKW this trip - only 68 points for 6 nights in a studio. Staying in value season doesn't hurt either!
We have stayed at AKV in a savannah studio and a value 1bd and value studio - totally recommend for the point values. We have also stayed at the Boardwalk in a Village Green studio (also totally recommend).
I get pretty creative with the points and we have managed to squeeze 2 trips per year out of our small contract. Sometimes I add a couple of nights in a moderate and pay OOP. All in all although I would love about 50 more points we have no plans to do so - we still have 3 years until this contract is paid off so nothing further until then!

We have a 160 point contract at BLT we purchased last November while staying at BWV with some friends. We liked it so much we purchased BLT because it was so close to MK for the Grand Kids.
