There are few vacations that people will want to do year after year. Before buying into a timeshare, you really need to spend a lot of time thinking about how likely you are to grow tired of your timeshare. And spend time researching the resale market -- both because you might want to buy that way *and* because you might end up selling that way at some point.

One other thing I haven't seen mentioned here - not all timeshares require you to go to the same place on the same week year after year. The newer timeshares use a point system and you can go wherever and whenever you want within their network. Of course, it will be hard to get Christmas week in Hawaii but you aren't limited to going to Orlando the 23rd week of the year for life.
