You may be able to splurge on a long weekend stay or expand into a larger or higher point use resort. Don't forget Hilton Head Island or Vero Beach for a beach weekend (depending on your location to drive vs. fly).

Check with the broker you bought the DVC membership from if you need to rent points. (unless it was direct from DVC)

Isn't David's based on a first owner to respond to his email request gets the rental? If so, keeping an eye on emails and responding quickly should help you rent sooner. Your immediate need is to rent your banked 2016 points for a reservation used by August 2018.

You can bank any 2017 points still available in Jan/Feb (has to be done by halfway mark into your Use Year) to the following year so that you can either use them from 9/18 to 8/19, or rent them if your vacation forecast turns out as dire as predicted. That should give you maximum flexibility.

I agree. We're on the "vacation every 6 months" plan. Three years would kill us...

I agree with others. David's will get it done for you. As soon as you sell, you will regret it. Squeeze in a long weekend and enjoy what you can!

Maybe a weekend Poly Bungalow trip would help you shread a number of those points and allow for a targeted vacation. Certainly if you can find a renter that's a great option, but a high roller weekend at a bungalow would be a nice 3-year birthday present.

Piling on here, you have sunk costs in the closing costs, plus the 4.5% or more you'd pay in commission to sell.

Easier to keep it unless you stood to profit on the sale.

If you've never done it I'd look into some short holiday trips when work is likely to be closed. July 4, NYE, etc. are all worth doing at least once. I've done NYE in DHS and Epcot and had a blast both times.

Congratulations! Sorry to hear about the challenges that you might have using your points. I'd recommend testing your hand at renting yourself if David thinks it might take a while to rent your points. The good news is that there is a large pool of potential people to rent to and I think you can successfully do this yourself (and maybe make more money in the long run) if you are so inclined.

Best of luck with your decision!

you might consider offering points for transfer as a once a year option or book coveted times and use them or rent out the space to a target audience (F&W or holiday week) before banking your total point list (once banked can't be transferred).

On years where July 4th falls on a Mon/Fri I will also get away. And occasionally, I will do Easter weekend and next year, I will be going away over Thanksgiving.

Long weekend trips are also a staple for our traveling.

Since you are only guessing there will not be time to travel, I would hold off until you actually see that its not possible. In the mean time, I would rent the unused points. Eventually your schedule will allow you to go back to WDW and you will, since you already acknowledge you are kids at heart.

Renting with David is pretty easy and not much of a downside. The renting will cover your dues plus some extra. I say set the extra money aside after paying your dues for when you can finally have a big Disney trip.....then use the money and really big!
I totally agree. I've launched lots of products in my time, and of course there are times when vacation is not happening, but 3 years without a day off seems really extreme and I work in a really extreme environment.

So I would say rent out a year at a time. There have got to be some long weekends available in there. You know what they say "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy." You don't want The Shining on your hands.
