I must say Disney Vacation Club is simply amazing. Great service, good availability for members and wonderful website. I know it is expensive and not for everyone so if my post does not fit your needs, I understand. We just joined DVC in 2017. We bought the annual pass for approx $500 per person. We are planning two trips to WDW in this time period, for a total of 19 nights in VGF, AK and Poly (not including Grand Cal and Aulani). This year, we are staying in 1 bedrooms (except Poly since they only have studios) and next year we are planning to stay in 2 bedrooms (except Poly). Dining reservations were recently released for our dates. I was able to reserve every restaurant we want. I also reserved Mickey's Very Very Merry Christmas party at a slight discount since we are DVC members. The ability to book dining and fast passes early is fantastic as a member staying at DVC resorts. Already, most dining reservations are booked in the first week. If we weren't members, I doubt we would have been able to do all of this or even afford it at a per night rate. Our DVC phone rep said we have an amazing itinerary planned. He was even questioning why we booked so much because he said it was unusual for members to do so. If we were not DVC members, we would be unable to book everything we did and the cost per night would be at least double. As a member, we can book early and maximize our points, leading to a more cost effective DVC vacation. We are so excited to take our kids for their first WDW vacation later this year. There is so much to do at WDW that we definitely need to go back next summer. There is more to do than we have time to do in 10 days. As an adult, I am excited! I can just imagine how wonderful this will be for our children. In addition to our satisfaction, we bought at just the right time. All of our DVC resorts have increased in price this year. If we sold right now, we would make a small profit! Super unusual for a timeshare. "Welcome Home" summarizes it all!
