I’ve heard a few around MB say they aren’t allowed the promos that most of us take advantage of. Like the free dinning??
You can’t get free dining but I feel like DVC is a better in the long run. Discount will come and go and we’ll still have our DVC. If free dining is something you might want to do every so often you could always rent your points and book on cash.
I was talking with someone yesterday (at home) and they said you can sell your DVC back to Disney for what you (initially) paid?? Really?
Nope, not true. Disney does buy points back but not for what you paid and I don’t think directly from members. They get points back through ROFR when people are selling their points to another party.
Now can you bring other people with you in the room? Say I wanted to bring my sister & brother in-law with us, can they stay with us free?
Yep, as long as the room sleeps that number of people.
Are there any black out dates? And how far in advance do you have to book a vacation?
You can book your home resort at 11 months out and all other resorts at 7 months out. No back out dates but some times are more difficult to book than others so you really need to be able to plan long term of you travel at busy times and you want a certain resort.
I 'd love to hear everyone’s experiences, pro’s and con’s–if any .
We LOVE our DVC and have not regretted buying in once. I wish we could have done it sooner but we waited until the time was right for us.
There’s a referral thread if you don’t have a guide yet, members get a little reward for referring new members.
Read all you can, there’s so much to learn. [/QUOTE]
