    My real estate brokerage company gets Golden Oak e-mails all the time. Those Olive Gardens on Steroids do nothing for me. There's absolutely no subtlety to them. And you're required to use one of several styles. No thanks.

    Yep, I’m not a fan. And starting at $2million.... nope!

    Are there onsite benefits to having a home in Golden Oaks? Otherwise I'd rather build a custom vacation home with the $2 million disposable vacation $ that I don't actually have ;-)

    I don’t know, but I’ve got $2 million for a vacation house, I’d imagine I could purchase whatever park perks I desire.

    It looks like some combination of regular onsite benefits, plus some DVC and AP style stuff thrown in: EMH, 60-day FP+, access to a special Golden Oak AP ( I think you get a few free ones for a limited time after you first purchase), access to Top of the World, the DVC lounge in Epcot, invites to signature experiences, etc. For $2mm and up I'd expect free AP for at least 2 people for life, but this seems to cover at least the minimum necessary to tie in to WDW.

    In addition to the $2 million up front, it is also something like $20k a year in HOA dues. That alone I would expect AP for life, plus a lot of other benefits.

    At which cost would you not expect APs for life plus other benefits? $20,000/year in HOA dues isn’t an unreasonable amount for properties of that size, amenities, costs to keep the grounds up, maintenance, etc. This comes to $1,666/month for a $2MM+ property which probably has to carry hurricane insurance, among other things. That HOA fee is more or less what an approaching-higher-end 2BR/2BA condo in Chicago would run.
