[QUOTE=ktcheck;1072643]I’m thinking mostly WDW…for now. I also looked at several properties through RCI that you can use your points for and some really appeal to me…Wyoming, Louisana, Texas, and Gulf Coast. I’m sure I can find internet deals for those also and in the LONG run that may be a better savings. Almost all of my friends are telling me DON"T DO THIS…YOU WILL REGRET IT…followed by a story of so and so who had a time share and hated it, yearly fees too much, never used it, etc…
Of course my DISNEY friends think its a great idea:blush:(I think they are secretly hoping I won’t be able to go on vacation and they can rent my points :laugh:) My kids LOVE Disney, and so do I. I am thinking when/if they grow out of Disney we can use it to see the rest of the country.
So much to consider:blink::blink:[/QUOTE]
Buying a timeshare outside of DVC is always an option. This is what we did. We like to travel a lot and Disney is included in our favorite destinations. As you can see, very few people regret their DVC purchases. If we wanted to do Disney and only Disney, DVC would be perfect. But, we would rather switch it up and go to different places. We still trade into Disney every couple of years and that works out great for us. Timeshare purchases outside of Disney are better for us because they’re a lot cheaper with lower maintenance fees. It’s not worth it unless we are going to Disney every year.
It’s a decision you’ll just have to make for yourself. There are all sorts of options out there. DVC or not, I’m sure you’ll be happy with your decision! :happy: I have never regretted any of my timeshare purchases.
