A friend who just came back from Orlando has an "opportunity" to buy direct 200 points for $20,000 at a new resort. I told her I would check it out for her. Any quick comments on whether or not this is a good idea???

Honestly, it is never a good idea to buy a timeshare... Just kidding. It depends on a lot of factors. Did she check out the disboards.com Lots of information on the board forums under DVC. GL...
