Unless you can't sell it, you don't want to go to WDW and you still have to pay the MF's. I mean, who knows how much those will be in comparison to what you can get through resale? Once the value drops, it's like any other timeshare. My FIL is going through this with one he owns in perpetuity. We'll probably default on the thing when he passes because we don't want it.I agree actually. I'm in my early 30's and went with SSR because it was the longest contract I was willing to take. I didn't want the burden in my 70s and 80s of owning a contract with maintenance fees. If I get to that point and still want to own a contract, I can buy a 10 year Riviera contract then.
Having said that, theoretically in 40 years, a 10 year Riviera contract should hold more resale value than a zero year BLT contract.
