    Back in August of last year I bought my first contract resale at Saratoga Springs. Once I owned the contract I immediately booked my first trip for January at Boardwalk in a 1 bedroom. I purchased with the idea of going every other year. Before I even went on my first trip, I booked a second trip. The plan was to go for the Epcot Forever show that temporarily replaces Illuminations (still waiting to hear when that changeover will happen) I had my trip in January and I am in love with DVC. A little over a month after my first trip, I’m thinking about saving money again for a second trip. I need help, LOL.

    If you haven't yet do not....i repeat...do not buy an annual pass. That was by far our biggest downfall now into our 3rd contract. Hahaha!! We love our DVC too.

    You're right!! It's addicting! It was funny to see that Pete and the DIS folks put on a DVC show, and by the end of the second recording, Pete went out and bought a DVC Contract!!

    But I'm with you: We bought our first DVC contract last year resale, and are now on the waitlist for 75 pts direct at BLT.

    Pete was too funny, when he said he bought in already I just about died. He did not wait on that.

    Same happened to me! I bought 100 points at Polynesian direct from DVC in 2016 with the intent to go every other year. After our trip in August we decided going every other was not enough. So we are in the process of buying 200 points resale at Boulder Ridge (We love the resort and the price point is really good).

    DVC is the best money I’ve ever spent. And yes, addicting. We bought in 2012 at Beach Club and then 2016 at Animal Kingdom. We have 455 points combined and not enough...ugh.

    I went on 6 trips last year and recently went into ROFR for a 5th contract. When will the madness end?

    It seems that we never have enough points. We bought our first contract in 2010 resale and within a year we added on. As the kids have gotten older we enjoy more space so we added on again in 2014. And now we are waiting on closing docs for our fourth contract. This is a sickness. We do buy the annual passes and were doing that before buying in. But we really work those annual passes now.

    So true! 5 trips to WDW in one year to “get our money’s worth” from the AP. If we lived within driving distance it might make sense. But oh no. Southwest got our money too. And now we’re looking at a second DVC contract. Addictive? Indeed. [telling self do not click renew button for AP]

    Two years ago this week, we were in contract for our first resale contract. We now own 3 resale contracts and 1 direct. I haven't bought a contract in 9 months and I'm going into withdrawal.

    I keep having to stop myself from pulling the trigger on some really attractive BWV contracts. But I get extremely upset later on when I let them go because the prices keep rising! I thought the January news would have perhaps stalled the price hikes, along with the dwindling remaining years on the contract, but it doesn't seem to be the case.
