When I get my stimulus money from obama, I don't know wether to buy a Disney time share, or a new beachfront condo/hotel from Trump.

Wha stimulas money? It was all given to big business and government agencies. You didn't think you would ever see any money from liberals did you. The liberals take money they don't give it.

I have not been able to see the benefit in timeshares. My husband and I can go to Disney for two weeks cheaper then Dad stays a week (he owns a timeshare). He has small fee for each trip, but the yearly maintaince fee is high. We rent a condo. I have never understood timeshares.

What this story doesnt tell you: Disney timeshare is being outsold in its own backyard by Wyndham Bonnet Creek, which is located inside the Disney gates and just a stone's throw from the parks. It would be nice if JUST ONCE the Slantinel got it right!

We recently stayed at Bonnet Creek and it is a beautiful resort. It has a zero entry pool, small lazy river and a fun water play area for young kids. They have just opened a third pool with two more planned. Best place to stay in all of Disney!

Can afford it. Unlike you. I would hate to be poor. So bitter and angry at the world. I will enjoy my Disney Vacation Club while you can enjoy your once in a lifetime vacation at FUN SPOT while staying at the SUPER 8 Motel.

It's impressive to see a corporate giant moving so decisively on a timeshare development. It just proves the profitability of such construction. Who ultimately is paying for this are timeshare owners.

The timesharers are banking on the price of a hotel stay to increase to the point where it would be cheaper to own for a block of time as a co-owner.

It may pay off in time, but at the present, it is less expensive to stay at a hotel...depending on your tastes.
