Same here. We bought 12 years ago at AKV for around $95 a point. If we would have waited and saved the money we would have been closer to $130pp. We paid it off in 4 years and basically the interest matched the rate of the direct price increases. It worked out fine for us.We financed our purchase 25 years ago through Disney. At the time, the interest rates weren't that far off the rates of those days but 14.99 seems VERY high to me with rates today.
We paid our loan off early, and the price was so low at $62 a point it was only a 5 year loan anyway.
People on these boards will argue with you saying you can't afford it if you have to finance, but we didn't find that true at all. We bought before we had kids and we both had high paying jobs. It has worked out absolutely perfectly.
Financing from Disney was super super easy and immediate.
