    Magic Village Views in Orlando

    We are staying at Magic Village Views in Orlando. We got it as an exchange through ThirdHome from an owner so I assume this is a timeshare. It is managed by Wyndham and part of their Trademark Collection. I am wondering if it’s a timeshare because if it is, then I will post a review on TUG.

    im totally new to the timeshare game. If I buy 154k “even year” points with a maintenance fee of 605 is this a good deal? Our goal is to stay at places for 2-3 nights. Most hotels are $150-$200+ A night and for 605 a year it seems like a no brainer if the points give us 10 or more nights. So...
