We did this one 2 - 3 years ago and it was pretty typical for a timeshare presentation. We did it because we wanted to see the amenities that the resort had to offer and they offered us a lot back in return for the money we paid them up front! They put us up at the Radisson, gave us a $25 gift certificate to Bass Pro and $50 to use on our choice of any show in Branson. IF I remember correctly, the 90 minutes turned out to be more like 2 hours! We 'turned down' their first offer, and they brought in a saleman 'just a bit higher on the ladder' to talk to us and reduced the price. Turned him down too, and repeated the scenario! Went thru several salesmen and the price was reduced very much from their original offer, and they 'just couldn't understand how we could refuse' such a great offer. The last couple of salesmen were pretty rude, but we stood our ground and didn't purchase. The one thing I remember as being different with them, they 'gave' us our 'freebies' upon checkin at the hotel, we didn't have to wait until after we did the timeshare presentation to get them. But they had our info, so I"m sure they would have 'billed us' if we had skipped out on them before the presentation. All in all, it was pretty much as we expected it to be and we were 'prepared' for them!
We've done several time share 'thingys', but will never do one again as I have read of so many terrible experiences that people have had to deal with. Timeshares have a terrible 'reputation' in Branson, so if you do one, be prepared to be humiliated!
