Eventually you realize college needs to be paid for and those scholarships and big financial aid grants that everyone else seems to get aren't there for your kids.

At the same time as people are telling you that you shouldn't worry about what is going to be happening 30 years from now, don't buy a timeshare near the MK because your kids are little and you'll be spending a lot of time at the MK - that is very likely to change before you are done with your contract. They grow up in a blink.

My opinion, since you have 2 children under 3 is to buy into BLT(resale), MK will probably be their favorite park for a few years and the walk to BLT will be a saving grace to you.

In 10 years I believe the resale value at BLT will hold up better then BWV, simply for the fact that BLT will have 18 years longer and BWV will have 18 years left.

My 3 DD's now 18, 21 and 22 still prefer MK to all other resorts so for us BLT was the reason we bought DVC. We just recently added on at BWV for our adult trips. We always rent a car and drive to the parks because we like the convenience and MK for sure is the one park you cannot drive to and park so walking is a huge bonus.

I would say BLT is a much better value. lower dues, longer contract,


When BWV was selling in high $50's low, $60's per point, i would have said BWV. No that it;s selling in the mid $80's... it seems almost absurd to pay that much per point for a contract that is less than 30 years long now. You barely have time to make up your principle cost

Do you have a view preference for BWV? Hubby and I love having the boardwalk view. We also really like having the standard view option. However in 7 years of ownership, we have never stayed preferred (pool) view at Boardwalk.

If we make reservations within the 7 month window, we see what views are available at Boardwalk. If only pool view has been available, we have thus far stayed elsewhere. Pool view is 60% of the resort.

So...if you like the pool view at BWV, purchase at BLT. You can always get a pool view at BWV at 7 months. If you want to stay ON the boardwalk or want to use standard points...then BUY AT BWV!!!

Also, if you buy a small contract...I would definitely buy BWV. Those standard studios will stretch A LOT!

IMO the lower dues at BLT existed during the "heavy selling period" under prior management but now that it is over, the dues at BLT has increased by over 6% for the last 2 years.

I agree.

As of October 6, there were 51 BLT and 41 BWV DVCs listed on 6 popular DVC resale sites for sale.

However, this has changed dramatically. In late April during the BWV feeding frenzy, there were 68 BLT and only 13 BWV DVC listings!

My personal favorite is the one recommended by Bill which is Dvcresale.com. I liked their web page format better. They are more accurate....the timeshare store has my MF listed wrong, and they have side information that is useful, (How long the resort contract is, maintenance fees). I also love how quickly they respond to email. Great attention to detail. The timeshare store was my second favorite.

I had this same debate this past week but in the end chose BLT and JUST emailed my signed contract to TSS today and it just was sent for ROFR. I felt the 18 years outweighed all of the other perks of BCV or BWV. Plus I can always book there if I wanted to.
