The savings right now is about $400ea ($800 for DW and I) a year which over the life of the contract is $20,000.

I'll take resale anytime even with some of the aggravation that comes with it!!!
Geez, you are young and must be doing really well. Congrats!

I am also going to add my kids onto my direct purchase. They told me all six will get blue cards because they all will be owners. Then they can buy resale if they choose..Direct pricing is just crazy right now. Even a small poly contract will be thousands of dollars less in resale.

We have 2004 non-expiring with 7 days left. We'll milk that and our 2042 BWV and BCV until we're 82. Really, based on the results of my recent physical, not likely to expire then (or ever ), but may be done with Disney and ready to move onto other things...

Cheers.

buy resale - you have all the perks you need, unless a new resort opens at a good price. GFV opened at 140 and I thought that was really high will scoop some points on resale instead - well i paid 140 resale

Let's start a meet and greet at 2042 to also both celebrate 82, and the coming homelessness!

We'd be 86 - probably with the walkers with the built in seats and bike brakes
