Disadvantages to buying via resale?

We are considering resale due to the $ savings...but I think I recall hearing a few years ago that Disney started to place restrictions on how the points can be used when purchasing a resale. Does anyone know the scoop on this? Thanks in advance!

I believe the restrictions are that you cannot use resale points towards the concierge/club level rooms, Disney cruises, or Disney adventures. There might be one more that I'm not remembering. They can be used for all Disney resorts and for RCI.

actually, it's the concierge collection (a group of pricey hotels like the hotel del coronado in san diego or the mandarin oriental in DC). you can still book concierge villas at AKV if you are very lucky.

resale pts can be used at all DVC resorts and traded out through RCI (or for club intrawest or club cordial resorts through the buena vista trading company).

resale pts cannot be traded out for any disney hotels (like the poly or POFQ).

Personally, I think that most people would agree that resale offers you a lower price, and the things you can't do by buying resale you are not likely to do anyway. Cruises and RCI have a terrible point to cash value. Resale is the way to go!

RCI can be a good deal and a poor deal depending but it is not currently restricted for resale buyers, neither is the BVTC, Disney's own exchange company which currently works with Club Intrawest and Club Cordial. it's ONLY the cash type exchanges that are restricted. IMO there is absolutely nothing of reasonable value currently excluded from resale buyers. In effect, Disney did resale buyers a favor by lowering (at least for a time, likely again) resale prices.

With resale, you lose a bit of bragging rights.

Instead of saying, "I just spent $20,000 for a Disney timeshare!"...

You now can only say, "I just spent $12,000 for a Disney timeshare!"

Or..."I just spent $1 for an XYZ timeshare on eBay!" but that's another thread.

Though I chose to buy resale and it went fine, I do agree completely with nd43 on the uncertainty of how Disney will make choices in the future, and that their best interest is to protect direct first, and secondary market second, and only protecting the secondary market at all because the secondary market value decline could impact direct sales ( more permanency to your purchase if secondary market goes away, makes a buyer more wary).
