I have owned for about 5 years now and I can't believe how prices have gone up. By the time GF is selling it will be $140 a pt (if not higher) and I bet the pt charts will be higher that BLT. I passed on a chance to get BLT direct at $91 a pt, I had the paper work and thought a better deal would come along............BOY WAS I wrong. On the flip side resale prices are magnificent compared to DVC direct and only going to get better IMO. The restrictions they have on resale right now is pretty insignificant (I'm sure that can change) and doesn't justify the cost difference.

Now when GF comes they may have a new structure that might require people to buy direct..........but not for this kid!!! It will be interesting to see how incentives etc will be handled. If possible we might stay there with our pts or a RCI trade for curiostiy sake but not a big attraction. Now when my kids grow up and if they decide to get married there.........well that could be a different story:rofl:
