Hi all -
After much careful thought and a ton of research, I am close to taking the DVC plunge (unless my tax returns catch me by surprise and we owe a lot of money.) I know for sure that I am going to buy at Animal Kingdom. If for no other reason than when I discuss buying DVC with my DH, this is the place he gets genuinely excited about.
While my family of 3 does well at studios, I also am planning on having enough points to get 1 bedrooms. If we get DVC, I want our Disney vacations to be homey and comfortable and I known1 bedrooms have better availability.
So here are my questions:
I know that for part of our stays I would like to be at BLT, Poly, BWV or BCV. How hard is it to get 1 bedrooms (or the more expensive studios at Poly) 7 months out? In December? And during the rest of the year? Should I buy a smaller contract at one of these? I won’t buy BWV or BCV because of the expiration date but would consider the other 2 if necessary.
As a liner, I know how to be online the second I need to be and to work the waitlists. I just want to have realistic expectations going in.
Also, I have seen the DVC availability charts on the Dis boards. Very helpful, but would love to hear your actual experience.
