My husband and I are thinking about purchasing a DVC and have some questions, naturally I would contact DVC directly but it being Sunday they are not open, so I thought I would tap into some of the resources on this site. Everyone seems very knowledgable. Here are the questions we still have. Any info would be appreciated…
We are planning to go to Disney World in September of 2006 and in our reseach we thought, why not put the cash we were going to pay for our vaction into the DVC purchase and then we would be utilizing our resources in a better way, but what we don’t know is , If we do this will we be able to use a portion of our DVC points for this september? What would we do with the remaining points left over?
Park Passes, I understand if we purchase a DVC we get a discount on Annual passes for Adults, do we get discounts on regular hopper passes? We are taking my inlaws when we go in September, would I be able to get the annual passes for my family (2 Adults and 2 kids) as well as Hoppers for my inlaws?
I read somewhere that we can “now purchase the dining option” as members of the DVC. Is the dining plan discounted as well?
Is it true that the points we purchase are tax deductible?
Is it better to buy the DVC through Disney or through resale? If resale, who do you recommend?
“Home resort”… I am a bit confused… Do you always have to book at this resort, or is this just the resort you will pay your maintenance fees at? If you decide to book another resort or go somewhere other than Disney is there a transfer fee of some type?
I hope someone has these answers… Thanks for the time!
