We bought into Saratoga Springs in 2006 through Disney. We have 325 points.

We have stayed at the Disneyland Hotel, Saratoga, Boardway, and Beach Club on points. We are staying at OKW, BLT, and Saratoga on our 12 night trip in 2 weeks.

My hubby loves Beach Club while I kind of lean to Boardwalk just for the location. Although we haven't stayed anywhere that we don't love yet. We're super excited to try OKW and BLT this time!

Which resort(s) did you buy into (and when)?

We bought resale at the Boardwalk in 2006, we took our first trip in 2007.



- Where have you stayed on points?


We have taken 2 trips on points, and have stayed at Boardwalk, Wilderness Lodge, Beach Club, Boardwalk again, and taken a cruise. My favorite is the Boardwalk.


- any other thoughts?

We just love DVC. We live in the UK, so we can't visit very often, but every other year we get to have the most amazing trip, staying in places we never would have dreamed about without DVC. Next year we are already planning another cruise and a Boardwalk stay on points, and a cash booking at OKW for some free dining.

We bought into VGC in 2009 with 200 points right after our second son was born directly from Disney. We have stayed at BLT and BCV this past November. We are planning VGC next November. We really love VGC but have yet to stay there. I really enjoyed BLT though. We are looking to add on another 200 points so we can equally distribute to our boys when they are old enough!

My original points (first 150) are at VWL, and I purchased them in 2001. Then I added 50 BCV points about a year or so later, followed by 150 SS points and then another 100 SS points. So I have 450 pts total scattered amongst 3 resorts.

I bought my points directly from Disney.

Using points, I have stayed at Villas at Wilderness Lodge, Beach Club Villas, Boardwalk Villas, Old Key West, Saratoga Springs, Animal Kingdom Kidani, Bay Lake Tower, and Vero Beach. My upcoming trip in two weeks will be in a pirate room at Caribbean Beach using points. I have also exchanged and gone to Tremblant, Canada, which was absolutely beautiful.

I don't know which is my favorite resort. They have so many different things to offer. I love the pool at BCV, but if I'm going to be in the Epcot resort area, I'd rather stay at Boardwalk because the rooms are bigger. I LOVE the decor in the AK-Kidani rooms and the whole atmosphere of VWL. Who can choose?!

Other thoughts... BEST decision I ever made. I could never afford these vacations as often as I go with being a DVC member!

We own at Boardwalk. We bought after-market in Oct. 2007. My brother bought at Bay Lake in Dec. 2009 while visiting with us (we all stayed there, it's awesome). We have 150 points, but I want more! I'm always buying more to take family and stay in a larger room. We stayed at Animal Kingdom in Nov- it was really nice. This Nov. I'm shooting for Bay Lake again, I have reservations for Boardwalk, but I'll be changing or getting on the wait list in April.

Wow, lots of Mouseowners around here! We bought 225 points at Saratoga Springs Resort (December use year) and closed on 3/26/09! Dream come true for me! Yay! (Poor hubby )

We bought resale from a lady in France. So far, we have stayed at Boardwalk Villas, Animal Kingdom Villas, Saratoga Springs, & Old Key West. Well be trying out Wilderness Lodge in October for a night. I sooooo want to stay in Hawaii next!! Lol! Not sure what my favorite is, but Im pretty sure it will be Aulani! One day I will stay at Bay Lake if they ever have availability!

I really wanted to buy more points before they changed the rules about using resale points for cruises and Disney adventures. Well see what happens next with my addonitis! Lol!
