First time poster - I've been in Lines for quite some time. I'm thinking about DVC. I know very little about it but we recently got back from the World and stayed in rented DVC studio at Poly. Needless to say - we loved it.
Now that I'm back I'm seriously thinking about buying into it. I really don't know where to begin. So here are some questions:
If we pay the contract in full up front, are the only fees annual fees each year and then we'd just need to buy park tickets, food, etc?
If we go with say - Sarasota Springs, how easy is it to book other places 7 months out. Not during holidays or food and wine of course.
Are there any discounts associated with being a DVC member?
Is there an amount of time yearly we'd need to use it to feel like we've gotten our money's worth? Like if we only stay 4 days once a year - is that not enough to justify DVC membership?
Why doesn't everyone pick Sarasota Spings or Old Key West as their home resort since the buy in price point is so much lower?
I don't understand the end year thing. So is that when everyone's contracts are up or is it like 30 years from when each individual buys in?
I have tons more, but I'm scared no one will answer if I keep going, haha! Also - if you all know of any good resources form me to read up on this stuff, please shoot the links my way!
