stayatwdw

Have you ever tried renting DVC points. We did for the first time this year and have been extremely happy with what it. We were able to book BLT for the same price as we would have paid to stay at POR. We used stayatWDW and they were very professional and worked with us. I liked that I had a cancellation policy and the gift card for booking with them was a pleasant surprise.

Ok change of plans. Still going in June but now we are at the Poly from 6/23-6/25 and GF 6/25-6/30. The Poly is our DS's favorite resort even though he has never stayed there. Me and my DH thought we were being quite when we were talking about it this morning. So I booked it and we were going to surprise our DS next year when we pulled into the Poly but he over heard us talking this morning. I guess we weren't too quite. Now I have to change my ticker.

When renting points do you have to pay upfront? Or can you pay over time like you can through Disney. We got two rooms and a great deal with dining plan with a military discount.

I tried looking into renting points but it seemed to be a pain.

I'm sorry it seemed that way. I found it easy, but it may have been who I was dealing with. I use stayatWDW and have the best service I could ask for. I sometimes think I'm dealing directly with Disney. I would be more than happy to help you look into it if you to.

The time will go by faster than you think....or at least I hope it does.

Thanks again for keeping it updated!! We were originally going in January 2013, so I started a thread for it and keep up with the names and dates for it, so I totally understand having to keep track of it. Although I'm so OCD I love doing it.

I wanted to run this plan by other DIS'ers to make sure it's not too crazy.

DHS isn't really a full day park for us. I just checked this list of attractions that are open during EMHs at DHS and they are the ones that we ride. Well Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith and The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror would be a first for me and the DSs wouldn't ride either. According to the park hours from this last June, DHS had PM EMH twice during the week. My thinking is that we can go to DHS during one of the PM EMHs. Then if RnR or ToT makes me sick, which is very likely, we can go right back to the AKL and it won't mess up the rest of the day.
