Sorry -- was away all weekend.

We originally bought 225 pts, then added 100 more. But our home resort is BLT, which has significantly more points per night cost than the resorts you mentioned.

My word of advice -- DO NOT stay in a 2BR, unless you are prepared to add-on to allow you to stay in a 2BR with your family for every subsequent visit.

No insurance needed to protect your "ownership". That is what annual membership fees are for. You can purchase regular vacation insurance just as you can for a regular resort stay.

It appears 2012 points have been banked into 2013. Those banked points will have to be used by Feb 28, 2014. The remaining points in the 2013 UY must be used prior to 2/28/14 or banked by Oct 31, 2013.

Thanks for the quick reply, in your guys opinion is $60-65 ppt too low to offer? or does that seem about right for 250 pts at SSR?

I think you are in the right price range. I have seen SSR go for $57 and even a little less to $67. We purchased our first stripped contract this past Apr. for $62.50 pt. 225 pts. Then added on 150 pts loaded for $60 a pt. that was the asking price on both, we did not offer less as I felt these were fair prices. We will be taking our first trip this Jan and will be staying at Animal Kingdom. These boards have been and still are a great place to gain information. They continue to help me learn more about the DVC experience

Based on what I have seen and read online, I would probably offer 58. That's just my opinion. It also gives some room to negotiate.

i would not own those resorts unless i really wanted to stay at those resorts. SSR is a better value if you are looking at wdw stays and are just happy to be onsite. (note that SSR expires in 2054 compared to 2042 for HHI/VB.)
Note: if the people extended them. Not all of those contracts are extended. I own one that is and one that isn't so I got one for a much lower price. Be sure to ask if buying them.

It seems a little low, but not completely crazy. The median price recorded for the first two weeks of October was $73.50 for SSR. But there are a lot of contracts available for SSR and a wider range of prices. So $65 is not out of the question. You'll have an easier time if you set your range a little higher.

You need to make sure you understand the program before committing. If you're asking about discounts, you've not educated yourself enough to make buying a reasonable option currently. Spend some time with this, I usually recommend spending 6 months of active investigation before buying.

I know you can't get FD etc I meant I've read & heard you get annual tix discounts & a few other things but can't find out exactly what, that's why I'm asking is to try & learn.

Sure, I understand why you're asking but it came on the heels of talking about making an offer, I wanted to make sure you had learned enough to make sure DVC would be a blessing if you bought. Any purchase decision should be made on the basis of whether DVC makes sense for you without any other perks or discounts. Here's a good place to start on discounts.

Discounts don't really come with your membership; in fact, the documentation you'll get with your purchase comes right out and says that discounts and perks are not part of your vacation ownership.

Instead, other divisions of the Disney company, and other companies, *may* offer discounts to members. For instance, Disney Parks currently offers a discounted annual pass to members. That will only last as long as it benefits them to offer it. It could continue to be offered for several years, or it could go away the day after you buy.

Right now, the AP is the only really significant discount. We currently get some small merchandise discounts, some reduced prices on tours and golf, and discounts on some restaurant that are in the ballpark of 10%, I think. There have been some discounts on DCL cruises in the past, if I remember correctly. Members have the ability to buy the TiW card, which has some nice restaurant discounts.

The point is, don't consider the discounts when you're making a purchase decision. They come and go at the whim of whoever's offering them. What you get when you buy is the right to stay at DVC resorts, subject to availability. Nothing else is guaranteed, whether you buy direct or resale.

ALL SSR contracts expire in 2054. every single one. extension was never an option for any resort besides OKW (and those OKW contracts expire in 2057).
