I am now on the fence of selling one of my CCV contracts. DH and I were discussing it earlier today. As much as we love CCV we never end up staying there. It is my favorite over the holidays, but the kids prefer Epcot resorts or SSR for Disney Springs.

Don't sell for the kids, keep what makes YOU happy. They may not like it now but it's close to MK and the exp date is longer. When the kids are grown they can stay at a different resort and you can enjoy what you love.

We talked for several months before we listed our contracts. Even then, we had trouble deciding which to keep. It is a long process. I had a hard time letting go.

We had the same situation with our AKV points as you are having with CCV. We loved the resort, but we didn’t stay there often. We seemed to stay at OKW whenever we could. The boat to DS was a huge draw for us. My daughter and her fiancée wanted to spend a lot of time at DS and their favorite park is EPCOT.

We had a similar situation with our BWV contract. We sold it for years ago because we never stayed there. Took the money and bought more VGF points.

Also true.....When we sell, more then likely its because I have retired and I am trading my DVC for a house in the area......or I am dead.

Honestly, while I"m glad I bought CCV instead of waiting for Riviera due to the point charts, CCV is so incredibly hard to get into. I'm not sure if that will ever settle down.

We did love our stay and it was great to be back at WL, where we hadn't stayed in over ten years, so I definitely hope to rent some CCV points in the future! BRV points are also fine, but being in the main building was awesome and I liked the western modern more than the western country of BRV.
