    Thanks, Its just so confusing., why have blackout days?
    Did I read earlier somewhere that you didn't get yours at the point of reservation because of a blackout week, but then you got an email saying you got it? Just wondering, I wasn't sure if you had a blackout week. How long after your reservation was booked did you recieve the email? Just wondering.
    And we got a huge postcard from GOOFY today about the free Fall dining plan..., go figure,
    Congrats on the DVC

    im going dec 3. - dec. 11 which falls under the black out dates. then about week after they announce the free dining we got the email from goofy saying "just for your family" email invitation to free dining with no black out dates. we had like a 15 digit code in the email i had to supply to the operator with my fiance's specific information.

    i have to admit being in the dvc now, it took away the fun of waiting for those emails. it made it more exciting.

    Re: Extended! - Walt Disney World® Resort Free Dining

    160 points enough for a weeks vacation at all the resorts in a studio. my home resort is bay lake tower. i put $1,500 down and my monthly payments are 250 for the next 10 years. lol i get bonuses at work so im 100%sure it'll be paid off before 2020. i work overtime all the time so my OT checks will cover the cost of it. oh and its a 600 maintenance fee once a year, a lil pricey until its paid off. but i can go to hawaii and the cruises. ill feel really good about the purchase when ive got my moneys worth out of it, lol. but i dont have buyers remorse.

    Re: Extended! - Walt Disney World® Resort Free Dining

    pretty much lol. the only real thing you have to be aware of is the banking points thing. if you dont use points for whatever reason you have to bank them or lose them. but you can borrow up to 3 years worth. but yeah its pretty awesome, the phone line operator will tell you exactly what points your using and if you need more to borrow from your upcoming year..... this is why i was grateful the mall had a DVC open house area. she was able to explain this better than me. Free Disney Vacation Club DVD | Disney Vacation Club link to get the dvd. If you become a member mention my name, lol i get a reward. ALSO so that you know when i signed up i got $1,300 off and they gave me last years points. so i started my first year with 320 points.

    WE ARE ON THE SAME WAVE LENGTHS.
    the reason i got into it primarily was that we are ALSO planing to do the cruise and Disney land in the next 2 - 3 years.

    Re: Extended! - Walt Disney World® Resort Free Dining

    The cruise is alot more points. she said with the 160 to play safe im better off doing the 3 days cruise and maybe borrowing points to do the land vacation (going to wdw after the cruise). she told me its more because it covers the food and soft drinks and any activities offered on the boat. (no island excursions)
