Welcome aboard. I'm also a recent new member and can vouch that the group here is great for learning how to get the most out of your membership. Where's your new home? We're at Boardwalk.

Im at the Polynesian started with 50 points direct from Disney to get the extra perks. Plan on adding more resale once the right contract comes along.

Welcome Home!

Nice- good way to combo the direct perks with resale price advantage. I'm doing it in reverse and am on a waitlist now.

Key tip- while you may be able to get away with a resale contract in a different use year than your direct purchase, they are harder to use together for booking joint stays in the 7-11 month out period. Sign up for all the resale sites for email blasts of new contracts. It gets a bit spammy, but listings often get put out in email ahead of being posted to the corresponding websites.

Default Saying hi

Hi everyone,

I'm Stefan, living in Germany, and just became a DVC member on a recent cruise on the Fantasy.
We travel a lot internationally, and make it to WDW at least once per year.

Hi! I'm a life long Disney fan who recently joined to find more information/inside tips. Looking to visit WDW more often after my recent honeymoon reignited the "WDW Flame" inside, with hopes of eventually staying at the AKL and maybe sometime in the distant future becoming a DVC Member. Love all the tips and hearing about everyone's love for Disney!

Default New DVC Member

Hello Everyone! I'm a new DVC Member. Just bought in at The Poly. Very excited since I've been a huge Disney fan since I was little. I'm 33 now and getting married in 2019 to a girl who loves Disney as much as I do. I even got engaged during Happily Ever After last month. Thanks for all the tips and great info on this board.
