Well 150 points is better than no points ,
We looked into it last year, but decided that it wasn't the time for us YET!!

I guess I'm just scared that it's a bit limiting - who knows one day we might decide we want to go somewhere else on vacation! (I know it seems unlikely&#33,
But it does seem very tempting - even Phil seemed interested the last time I mentioned it,  normally he just rolls his eyes and says 'yes dear' while completely ignoring me,  but this time he asked how much it cost and what you got for that etc and didn't turn pale at the cost - so who knows,  maybe one day...

Thanks David, if I think of anything in particular I'll give you a shout.
We're both very excited about it at the moment, as we want to buy into BC villas, and we couldn't afford to stay there otherwise. Really looking forward to the close proximity to Epcot and the Food and Wine Festival  , .

Remember you not only have the propertys in florida, plus hilton head(south carolina), plus disney hotels in california, plus disneyland hotels in paris and the disney cruise line, you also have the exchange system thro II, which gives you umpteen hundred worldwide exchanges.

There's even some in the UK ,

Just thought I would add ≈my bit.

We chickened out a few times before buying, it seemed such a lot of money. ≈I found the DIS boards and realised you could buy DVC resale. ≈We bought 380 points in Jan 98 for $52 a point! ≈Since then we have had 4 wonderful holidays, that we wouldn't have been able to afford. ≈One of them included a cruise on the Magic. ≈

Last October we took our friends with us and we all stayed in WLV followed by OKW. ≈They were blown away and are desperate to buy. ≈ They ≈are saving like mad to buy into BCV's and returning this October to buy them. ≈ I think once you have stayed at a luxuary resort in Disney, it is very hard to stay any where else. ≈

Saying that we are splitting our holiday this year and staying 4 nights in the new Royal Pacific Hotel. ≈Got a great rate of $139 at club level! ≈

We are planning a 7 night cruise in 2004, something that we would never have been able to afford with out DVC.

Christine - whilst I would certainly not discourage any from buying DVC or going to that wonderful place called WDW, do your friends know that they don't actually have to go to WDW to buy the points - it can be arranged over the telephone with a guide.  DVC will then send out the documents and instructions for their return by Fedex.  It's just that there is an offer on at the moment of $5 per point off the cost.  Just thought I'd mention this.

Jan - Thanks, they do know.  I have been trying to persude them to buy before June, but they are hoping to save more money by October.  They already had the holiday booked before coming on holiday with us.  They didn't expect to like it as much as they did and are really regreting booking the holiday.    My friend says that she doesn't want to stay anywhere else and is not looking forward to staying in the QIP on ID.  I said that it was a lovely hotel and in fact we had our honeymoon there!  

I think her husband is getting nervous about spending all that money and when you are 1000's of miles away from DVC it starts to fade.  I think they will buy, but they will pay the higher price.
