Disney Vacation Club Discuss Is the DVC any good? in the Vacation Planning forums; ok thanks...
Hi brad. Last year I did my own price comparison. We went to WDW 6 times last year. Before DVC, The most would be 2 times. We even had a large family trip using a one bedroom and a two bedroom at OKW and I totaled My out of pocket costs, DVC Loan payments, plus Yearly Maint. fees and I saved over $2000.00 from what I would have paid out of pocket. and that was figuring cash prices with My annual passholder discount and still saved that much. Also there are perks for Merchandise, For food discounts at many resteraunts, our Annual passes had a savings of about $100.00 each and also got discounts on all the special parties they have at the magic kingdom. If anyones trip to disney is to save as much money as You can to be able to go there even once a year, then maybe it is not for them, but what a difference staying at a one bedroom villa instead of a small value resort room. If you have your ownership payed off and have say, 300 points, You would pay just over $1200 for yearly fees and could work out 3 to 4 trips a year there on those points. Imagine these kinds of rooms for 5 days, 3 or 4 times a year for that kind of cost? Take the tour, it is low pressure and they will give you every answer to any question. We think it is well worth it. So much so that We just added 100 more points on to our 300 we have at Saratoga Springs. Good luck with the decision making and hopefully We can say" welcome home to You in the future.
