    We have gone to WDW for the past 3 yrs in a row and plan on going again this year. Honestly, is DVC something worth looking into? We have been part of a timeshare program before and it was not nearly worth the time and money we paid for.

    Hi Pablo!
    My family and I have been Disney Vacation Club members since 2003 and absolutely love the benefits of being a member.  We usually vacation one to two times a year at Walt Disney World.  To me, the vacations are much more affordable knowing that your lodging is taken care of! The Villas are spectacular and such a treat especially if you have a bigger family or want to invite someone else to stay with you.  It is great to have a full kitchen and washer and dryer available.  I feel that it really has changed the way we vacation. Disney Vacation Club is different than other timeshares as you purchase points rather than weeks.  You can borrow or bank points over a three year period. This allows you to be very flexible.  All the DVC resorts are fantastically themed and have their own special uniqueness to them.  
    I would encourage you to set time on your next trip to visit a DVC information stand at any of the theme parks, resorts, or at Downtown Disney.  The Cast Members are also very informative and can answer any specific questions that you have.  You will have the opportunity to visit the Preview Center at Disney's Saratoga Resort and Spa.  
    I have so much more to say about this, Pablo, but have run out of room.  Please send me a follow up question if you want any further information.  I must say that it was the best decision for our family.  We have purchased points three additional times since 2003.  I love Disney Vacation Club and hope that you will discover the magic of DVC yourself.
