Default I made the move

I just purchased 125 points at Grand Floridian and will be selling my 175 point contract at Vero. The $11.34 dues at Vero was a big factor plus I felt I had to many DVC points so I will now have 50 less. With the 2042 end date fast approaching and the current hot market for DVC points I though the time was right.

Congratulations. Will you have the 150 needed to keep/obtain a Sorcerer AP? That may not matter to you but I'm curious. Your post makes me assume you'll be at 125 total, though you could just be talking about the swap of resorts.

Wait!!! What?!?! Did I miss something? I haven't spent a lot of time on MO this past month due to other commitments. Is there a minimum number of points necessary to get an AP through DVC now?

Many years ago I bought 150 points at AKV (I'm a founding member) and sold off 160 Vero points. Like you, the dues were a consideration but also I just plain didn't like Vero enough to use the points to stay there - so why pay the ridiculous dues??? It was a good move - I'd held the Vero points about 10 years and got a little more than I'd originally paid for them - so 10 years of trips were basically done at the cost of annual dues.

Enjoy your GFV dues! I think I'm done adding or buying/selling at this point.

Default Akv

I am also a founding member at AKL, my name is at the bottom right of the second tapestry. I will look for your name next time I am there, May 17. On the bright side my AKV concierge just came through for December 16-18.

I don't remember which tapestry I'm on, but it's on the lower half an my name then was Sue Holland. Congrats on the waitlist coming through!! I have concierge level booked for late May and early September, and I fear that will be the end of my getting it. Even at 11 months, due to the walkers it's gone - and although in the past a room would get freed up later that day I haven't seen that happen recently :-( My friend Holli & I were out for a late lunch/happy hour today and I mentioned this. My backup plan is if I can't get club level I might be able to book a 1br villa somewhere else and we'll do the "faux concierge lounge" - the heck with Disney!
