    We have trips planned for Nov in Saratoga and April in Bay Lake (our home base). Both times we have two rooms for friends and family.

    I am a DVC member, I just joined this year but my parents have been members for 6 or more years. What questions do you have?? I know there are others on here so we might be able to help!

    The amount of points really depends on how often or how long and how many people are in your family.

    We currently have 200 points. Been members for 2 years. We share the membership with my parents, my bother/girlfriend, and me/husband (1 child and 1 on the way).

    We have only used the points at DVC hotels (vero beach, Disney world, so far) although I believe my parents are planning for a Hawaii vacation hopefully in 2013.

    So far 200 points have worked out perfect and between the group we have done 4 stays in those 2 years (we bought resale before the rule changes so we did buy some prebanked points) this year we still have 75 points to bank.

    Not sure if any of that helps but the more specific you are about your needs the easier to answer. I think most of us who bought did a ton of research to see if the points were worth it for their family because it is not a "cheap" investment and would be happy to assist.

    Good luck

    My family of 5 have 125 points which I think is the lowest you can buy into, We always have enough points to stay for 6 days with left overs to use or bank we always do a 2 bedroom villa at OKW, it is perfect for us our monthly fees run around 45 so it works where we dont have wonder if we have enough money or points we were lucky and we don't have a payment we bought it outright so I am not sure what a payment with disney would be as far as month rates.
    Life is not measured by the breaths we take, But by the moments that take our breaths away!

    If Disneyworld is your main spot look at the resales. We did the things you lose did mean that much to us, but saving almost 20,000 did! We got it from the timeshare store.

    Dvcstore.com. We talked to a guy named Robert. He was very helpful with all our questions

    We have been members since 2004 and have 315 points. I think one of the things that sold us on this was that their was no pressure from the sales people. The guy was very friendly and informative gave us his card and said enjoy your vacation if you decide you want to buy give him a call once we get back home if not it was nice to meet you! We love that we can use our points to do the cruises or go to Hawaii we don't have to just go to Disney.
