Hello! I found this forum after a conversation with a fellow Disney fan. I have rented DVC points from Davidís DVC rentals for one past reservation and have two upcoming reservations booked. My wife and I have 3.5 year and 1 year old sons. One of our upcoming trips is in a 2BR at BLT with the boys and the grandparents, and we are doing an Adult Disney trip in a Polynesian Studio in February.

Our past trips were both at AKL and I am looking at buying ~200 points resale to get a 1BR once a year for 7-8 nights (May or September until our boys start school). I previously thought it only made sense to rent points to not sink ~$25k into a time share, but am reconsidering in order to get better short term flexibility modifying reservations. We check into BLT in under 4 weeks so it will probably be best for us to wait until after that trip to make our final decision on buying into AKL, another resort, or continue renting points.

Welcome and good luck with your decision on purchasing a DVC membership.
