    Surprised at the pricing, not so much at the point charts.

    Wow. Look at Post #17 in that first link you provided, for a very good analysis of how the VGF Points Chart compares to the other resorts. Price-per-point and MF's don't appear too unfavorable compared to the others but it takes so many more points to stay there.

    DVC is in a somewhat unique position for point systems. Each of the other major point systems have at least one consistent component across their properties. For Marriott, Wyndham CWA, Worldmark all points are in a single trust and have one cost/pt and mf rate. For HGVC most properties have the same point structure.

    DVC has seperate control over each property and can manipulate all three items seperatly. I think we were all anticipating price per point at least at the current BLT/VGC rate of $165/pt. DVC made this more attractive by keeping it at $145 (Aulani and AKV rate) this was possible because they increased the pt/night rate to compensate. The puzzling part is why the mf is so high. The rooms are suposed to be really nice, but the resort is not expansive, the pools are not much larger than the other properties. Why does it cost so much to maintain a 2-bedroom unit? At least with Four Seasons resorts you get daily maid service.
