Love the Mouse!
- Sep 6, 2003
I love the feeling of "owning" DVC - I admit, it is an emotional connection. That being said, each point costs me roughly $8 or about $88 a night for a studio at OKW when we travel in October - just for an example. Rack rate (currently) is in the $300+ a night range or more for OKW? Renting is about half the price but risky if you end up cancelling and loosing what you paid. I'd rather own DVC than have that cash in my vacation bank account and it's much more fun to be able to dream/plan a unique vacation each year. It gives us the freedom of pre paid accommodations - our choice and not for everyone. We saw the future of DVC in 1996...still our happy place and we've made so many memories we'd never have without it. I don't think DVC is a numbers only decision - just my opinion.
