I’m pretty excited because I decided to commit to something a few weeks ago. Assuming Disney doesn’t refuse the sale, I’m on my way to being a Disney Vacation Club Member! After the last few trips, I realized that especially on race weekends there’s nothing better than having a washer/dryer because that’s how I vacation now: I want the luxury of in-room laundry facilities.
I had some lengthy talks with my parents, surveys of friends who have DVC memberships, copious amounts of research, and did a lot of math to come to this conclusion. I opted for a resale because I was (shocking surprise) interested in the Boardwalk and it didn’t hurt that it was slightly cheaper than the Beach Club. One day, as fate would have it, the number of points I wanted came up for sale and it’s currently sitting with Disney awaiting their approval of the sale. The great part is that it’s enough to cover a whole week in a 1 bedroom villa in January AND every other year I can use my leftover points to basically get a bonus 4 days for Wine & Dine! Oh, and I’m now a shareholder in the Walt Disney Company so by all means, everyone keep signing up for the races and staying on property.
The only downside was that the person I bought the points from didn’t want to close until February, so I can’t use them for the marathon until January 2016 but I made up for with the price per point so I was okay with it. Being the great person I am, I benevolently told my sister that I would of course charge a totally reasonable rate if she wanted to stay with me in January.
