"this" december is awfully optimistic. all of december is one of the busiest periods for DVC bookings and many owners book at 11 months out. also, VGF is a smaller resort with heavy demand so that's making it tougher. you really would need to plan farther in advance.

go to this website for more info and suggestions on DVC rentals:

I think you mean renting the points. However, I'll bet the places you want to go are already booked. You can look at the places selling timeshares and they have points to rent.

Dec 2014 might be more feasible, but you would need to book it in Jan 2104.

So if I like to go in the slow seasons would it make sense to buy a resale @ vero beach? If i do this then decide I really like a particular hotel I can always just buy another one right? How hard is it 2 book 7 months? Also are dvc slow times the same as wdw slow times?

Possibly since you can generally buy more points initially for your money at VB.

But keep in mind:

* VB has MUCH higher annual dues than the WDW DVC resorts.
* Slow times for the parks does not directly equate to "easy to book DVC accommodations". For example, early December is relatively slow for the parks. It is the a VERY DIFFICULT time to book DVC accommodations at the 7 month mark.

In almost all cases, it makes more sense to buy something at WDW if that is where you plan to stay the most.

I tried booking Hilton Head exactly at 8, 7 months out and was unable to get a reservation. Purchasing where you want to go, at least somewhere you want to be is better. If you like Vero beach.....then sure, get that one.

i wouldn't. buy VB to stay at VB. otherwise, you are taking on extra risk due to higher annual dues and the risk of coastal storms that hammer the resort (resulting in even HIGHER annual dues, also called a "special assessment"). there is also some risk of not getting what you want at 7 months out. and there is a very small risk that DVC may eventually spin off some of the offsite resorts, in which case VB would not be part of the DVC system.

VB is cheap for a reason.

you would have to sell the current contract (at a loss) and then pay closing costs for the new contract.

no. the whole period from late sept (food&wine at epcot) through early january is DVC's busiest booking period. early dec is still pretty slow in the parks but things can be very tight for DVC at the 7 month window as that is one of the very peak seasons for DVC bookings.

OTOH, summer is busy in the parks but not so bad for DVC bookings.
