DH said yes to add on! Now what?

We are at WDW now in a BLT 1 bedroom. Before our stay here we were at AoA in a Little Mermaid room. DH said never again will he stay at a value resort, even for a short stay. He's also over split stays. He wants enough points where we won't have to borrow anymore and can stay in a 1 bedroom for 7 nights straight. We currently own 150 points at SSR and 50 points at AKV. AKV is our favorite resort. We love the locations of the BWV and BLT.

So now that DH said yes to an add on of 100 points, I'm not sure if we should just buy a resale at AKV or buy direct at GFV. Our trips will be either in the summer (Aug) or Xmas week for the next 8-10 years. Not sure how we will vacation after that. Also, we never use our points for anything other than DVC.

We love the GF. It is a sentimental place for us because we had our vow reneal there in 2009. The theme & decor we love. We toured the models & loved them. It is a dream for us to stay at the GF during Xmas. To make that happen I am sure we will have to be owners there. But the cost is high!

We could save so much money buying resale.

We plan to pay cash.

Any advice? What would you do? Buy direct at GFV, buy a resale at AKV, or buy at AKV direct?
