Yes, we belong to the DVC. I get a lot of grief about this from friends and family, but honestly - totally worth it.
We live close enough to Florida to regularly go to DisneyWorld - plus having our hotel covered has made it possible for us to go a lot more often. The best part is we get to stay in hotels that we never could have afforded to stay in had we not been members.
Places like ~ Animal Kingdom Lodge (with a Savannah View). For my sons birthday we stayed here and he got to watch his favorite animal from our balcony (and his bed) every morning before we hit the parks. Zach will always remember this ~
I'm glad we were able to give it to him and someday he will be able to share this with his kids because we can pass our membership down to him.
The thing that makes DVC different than a regular time share is that we can go pick when we want to go and which resort we want to stay in. We don't even have to go do DisneyWorld! We also got to spend some time at Hilton Head ~
Even though we live in SC - Hilton Head is out of our reach, but not with DVC! Zach keeps asking when we can go back. He had so much fun there. We all did.
There are other ways to spend your points - take a Disney Cruise, head to California and stay at a resort on DisneyLand Property. How does DisneyLand Paris, Hong Kong, or Tokyo sound? They also have Adventures by Disney that happen all over the country and world that you can enjoy. The options are amazing - and you're not limited to one specific week every year. Make your memories your own!
Disney Vacation Club may not be for everyone. But it's worth it to check it out. You may find it fits your family perfectly, like it does ours.
