How to Choose Your Next Home Resort

“Add-on-itis” is that urge to purchase additional DVC points, an affliction regarded to have an effect on quite a few a DVC Supporter.  You can never appear to have sufficient points!  So when you finally choose to buy additional points, how do you go about selecting your up coming property resort?  Here are a couple of methods to strategically find in which to insert on: 

Residence Resort Benefit

You may possibly adore your current household resort and just want far more details there, but possibly you have recognized that there is that just one vacation resort that is always demanding to change to at the 7-thirty day period mark.  (Seaside Club Villas, I’m wanting at you.)  Maybe you genuinely want a resort alongside the monorail loop like Bay Lake Tower, the Polynesian, or the Grand Floridian.  Possibly you have fallen for Animal Kingdom Lodge with its savannas and its price and concierge booking categories that you can’t discover at any other DVC resort.  Getting a deal at just one of people resorts can give you that beneficial 11-month mark gain.

Park Proximity

From the Seashore Club Villas, you are just a small walk absent from Epcot’s Worldwide Gateway.

Another element to take into consideration is to uncover a resort that enhances the locale of your existing home vacation resort.  For instance, if you own a contract at the BoardWalk Villas, Seaside Club Villas, or Riviera, you now have wonderful entry to Epcot and Hollywood Studios.  Adding on at Bay Lake Tower, the Grand Floridian, the Polynesian, Copper Creek, or Boulder Ridge can offer much better obtain to the Magic Kingdom.  Equally, you could contemplate Animal Kingdom Lodge for its proximity to Animal Kingdom.

Contract Size

If you have a home resort with a contract that ends in 2042, perhaps it’s finest to find a home resort that has a lengthier agreement size.  Contract duration played a big purpose in my spouse and me choosing to include on at Bay Lake Tower, which has an expiration day of 2060. It felt like a nice counterbalance to our 1st DVC contract at the BoardWalk, which regretably finishes in 2042.  

More affordable Factors

Saratoga Springs is a wonderful choice for cost-effective points.

Some folks choose to e-book at the 7-month mark or considerably less, and dwelling resort edge doesn’t make a difference at all.  If that’s the case, it’s ideal to search for the most inexpensive details this sort of as those at Saratoga Springs or even the Polynesian or Copper Creek.  This is a excellent way to get additional details for much less to ebook much larger accommodations.  Cabin details, any person?

Choices in Villa Types

Speaking of the Polynesian, 1 of the downsides to the resort is the lack of 1 bed room and two bedroom villas (other than the point-hungry bungalows).   Similarly, a resort like the BoardWalk only has lock-off two bedroom villas that are built up of studios with adjoining just one bedroom villas and lacks the focused two bed room villas that can be observed at other resorts.  The Beach Club is also one particular of the handful of DVC resorts that doesn’t have any grand villas. In every single of these circumstances, a further dwelling vacation resort can give you improved entry to these villa sorts.
