For those that have done this how does it work for paying for a child with cash?
If the two adults were paid with DVC points, is a child (10 year old) paid at the advertised rate in the DCL info or does DVC have a specific cash rate?
Cheers,

DVC has specially negotiated cash rates for those DVC members who book part cash/part points. In my experience in asking (I've never booked thoough) DVC's cash rates are MUCH higher than DCL's rates. I've priced it out twice, using one adult on points, one adult, one child and one infant cash, it was only saving me $600 to book that way, what a waste!!! With both adults and only one child cash, I'd expect DVC's cash rate to be a couple to a few hundred more than DCL's.

Hmmmm that doesn't sound good then....
I know the point rates but as for the cash rate I was "hoping" it would be the same as DCL but then again should have known better :)

Grumbo, call DVC and ask them. Their cash rates do seem higher than early booking rates but as you get closer and your ship (I almost said "boat" :eek: ) starts to fill up the rates aren't that out of whack. DVC's cash rates don't change and therefore don't depend on how early you book.

I am in the process of possibly buying into DVC so am NOT a member so don't think I can call DVC reservations and ask for that info.
Perhaps I'll call the "guide" I'm dealing with and see if he can give me a figure.
Thanks :)
