Last year we went with my partner’s family who have had dvc points since OKW was called Disney’s Vacation Club Resort. Ever since our vacation we wanted to go back so hence the dvc purchase!
We’ve just got our first vacation booked - VGC 1 Bed in September. I’ve not been to Disneyland before so excited to check it out, before we return to Florida again next year (yes we have them all planned out )
Anyway lots of thanks to anyone on here. All your advice and comments in numerous threads have been really helpful over the past couple of months.


Welcome aboard, and congratulations on your purchase!

Welcome aboard. I’d say being a long-term annual passholder already buying would likely be best for you. Best of luck with your purchase decision.

I've picked up 3 contracts in the last year, plan on renting about 1/2 the points to cover the Dues so vacation are mostly free. :-D That's about it.

How do I get this off my name?
"Waiting to pass ROFR (i.e., n00b)"
Also why can't I login from my house, it says my IP is banned? WTF?

Keep posting on Mouseowners. The title is just a reflection that you're new to the board. I think at about 100 posts your "title" becomes studio

I received the "IP was blocked" when I was traveling and using my phone in the car. Maybe it is if you login from multiple IPs in a short period of time? NOt sure but the message I got said you could contact someone if you felt it was an error (need to be unblocked I would guess).

Default DVC newbies

My husband, daughter, and I moved from Saint Petersburg Florida to Nebraska about 9 months ago. (Crazy I know, but it was for hubbys job and a great move for our family)
We had annual passes 3 out of the 5 years we lived in Florida. We went to Orlando last month for a work conference for hubby and we stayed near Disney and the traffic was terrible. He suggested we go on the DVC tour the next day. We went on the tour and decided it was a great option - annual passes at the same rate as Florida residents really sold me. Tickets are crazy expensive otherwise.
