I completely forgot to post here on this thread! I posted originally on the ROFR thread.

Five years ago, my parents took my family (wife and 2 kids) to WDW. My Dad is a total Disney nut and loves the challenge of planning for park visits (yes he's a industrial engineer). At first my wife bristled at all the planning and was pretty much a negative Nancy right up until we arrived at the Polynesian Resort... then it was love at first stay! She was hooked. Hooked hard!


That led to an Easter 2014 trip to DL which led to another trip to WDW in Fall 2015 which led to another trip this past Spring. My 10 yo daughter having been seduced (figuratively not literally of course) by all the DVC signs and sales people at the park began lobbying for us to join DVC. So we took a plunge and bought our first contract at BWV.

And because we're completely hooked - we just got offers accepted on 3 more contracts OKW, PVB and BLT. We figure we'll rent out a bunch of our points year to year but wanted lots of flexibility as to where we stay and how often we go... So here we are!

Oh and already planning our first DVC trip for next Oct for F&W (my wife's favorite).

First day here. I'm hoping to gather information about a DVC membership by first possibly renting to get the lay of the land. I welcome any suggestions on how to prepare and proceed.

Thanks in advance!
