You can leave DVC to your children.
There are no blackout dates with DVC. The only “hidden” charge I know of is that you are charged $95 if you book outside DVC. I personally wouldn’t call it a hidden fee because DVC is very clear about the charge.
DVC isn’t for everyone so do your homework and decide if it’s going to be right for you. If you like to look for the best deal/code and like to stay at value resorts because the resort isn’t really a big part of your vacation then it may not be for you. If you like the deluxe resorts and enjoy spending part of your vacation at your resort then it may be something to think about.
You have to be a planner, it can be difficult to book certain times of the year last minute. Holidays and other popular times require planning 7-11 months out. I’m not saying you can never book a last minute room but it may be hard during parts of the year. What is typically a slow time at WDW may be a busy time for DVC bookings.
You also have to be sure of your travel dates because you can’t get your points back to bank or use freely if you cancel less than 31 days out. If you do cancel less then 31 days out your points go in holding and there are special rules for using those points.
