In February 1999, I met Bernard LeBeaupin. Bernard sold me on the idea that a single mom CAN vacation with her kid, family and friends and do it for LESS than a traditional vacation.
And it's been true.
In fact, I've rented out the timeshare, used it for a trip to Chicago where my two best friends and I stayed at the White Hall and there have been the cruises (I actually used my points to bring my parents and brother and his family, too), and this doesn't even begin to mention all the times that we've stayed at Disney in the resorts there!!
I first bought 170 points through Bernard in 1999 at Boardwalk. I paid that loan off more than a year ago. Later, we bought 40 points at The Villas at Wilderness Lodge and then another 100 at Boardwalk and finally an additional interest at Saratoga Springs (100 points there). If I had enough cash right now, we'd be plopping something down on an interest at Animal Kingdom!!
Over the last 9 years, we have been able to do all sorts of things that we could never have dreamed of before. Buying the Disney Vacation Club was the best purchase I ever made. Just ask the kid and the grandparents, they'll tell ya!!
So, I'll be posting about our vacation experiences as well as our booking experiences and pretty much anything else related to our experiences with this time share. Hope you enjoy the information.
