Default Poll: Riviera Resort: Who's Planning to Purchase?

Well, my last poll had me thinking about doing another one. DVC has confirmed that they have rolled out more restrictions on resale starting with on January 19, 2019 which mostly impacts resales at Riviera. In a nutshell, if you buy Disney's newest DVC resort, Riviera, via resale, then you will not have any of the perks that were previously taken away in addition to a new restriction where those resale Riviera points can only be used at Riviera. In other words, you can no longer book at any other resort than Riviera at 7 months if you buy Riviera points via resale. Who's buying and who's passing?!? I know the cost and points charts make a huge difference, but this poll is about what you are considering before those bits of information are released.

Passing - but I have no need for more points right now. I also am not sure I'd want a home with gondolas (height thing) so I need to test that all out.

If I buy more it will likely be resale and it would be for cabin/bungalow stays more often as well as doing winter stays as I get older. We're tapped out right now though.

We are buying. But I don't see the poll. See the poll now and have voted.

I didn’t see a “you couldn’t give me the darned thing because I would still have to pay yearly MF’s” response, so I just voted no interest.

My wife and I aren't fans of tower resorts, so we were never interested in Riviera.

Passing. I'm not wowed by the pictures of the villas. I don't need more points. And the resale restrictions are a huge negative. Not only am I not buying, I'm not banging the drum for DVC any more, either.

We are still considering buying, despite the restrictions. The amount I am willing to spend may have dropped a little due to the new restrictions. Possibly a $20k purchase instead of $25k. It all depends on the point chart and price now. I need to add enough for another week every 3 years and it will either be Riviera direct or BLT resale. I am hoping the sample room is open in late March when we are there.
