    DVC What do you know? Do you Own?

    Thinking about buy DVC and wonder is it a good buy for the California user who goes to Dl more than WDW.

    DVC stands for Disney Vacation Club.

    If you are planning on using it for Hotel stays at the Disneyland Resort primarily then it is decidedly not a good deal.

    If you plan to visit Disney World at least once every other year for the next 20 plus years than it is a great deal.

    Those who bought their memberships back in the early to mid 90s have saw their origninal investments go up in value by as much as 50%+ I believe....and that's on top of the many vacations they have already taken. They could sell their memberships right now and realize a healthy profit in addition to all those vacations.

    I do not own one myself but have been toying with the idea of buying in for about a decade now.....and kinda kicking myself for not doing it earlier.

    Well I was one of the people who buy in 1992

    yes I see grow in value.

    1992 - 2000 I got park pass

    Now we get good discount on park pass and some food place.
    reantal stuff some time free or a good discount.

    I have points to vacation ones a year and some time stay at Grand Californian resort in a concierge

    the point lever stay the same year after year.

    I am a CA DVC member, and I use DVC at least once a year. I like a vacation to WDW, welcome change from CA, and so much to see and do, and I get to see and do Disney on both coasts!

    There is a wonderful thread on DVC that you might want to check out as well.

    Why did you join DVC?

    Again, my advice is to hold out untill Disney gets a clue and creates a better California benifit... One it does, I think it will blow the roof off the program... But I think there is hesitance within the program because California property isn't cheap... And they would have to buy more land to really make it worthwhile.

    I'm a DVC owner too. Don't forget, there are about 500 properties you can stay at, not just Disney. I've used it to stay in Washington, DC last year. Next year, I'm using it for Tokyo Disney, the Miracosta. I have friends that have stayed in Monterey, CA, New York and London, all on their points. We also go to WDW once a year on points.

    Not me. I do manage to go to WDW 3-4 times a year (because it's only 90 minutes away) but I either do a day trip or if I can find a good deal on a hotel I'll take a Friday afternoon off work, stay overnight, hit the park(s) the next day and drive home that night.

    I wish that I was a member but I can't afford it right now.
