In a way. You can buy a few points at your 7 month window but not enough to do what you want. You can reserve DVC rooms on cash with a 25% discount thru MS, but subject to availability so that might not work for you.

The only option for extra one-time-use points from Disney is the provision for each member to be able to purchase up to 25 one-time-use points once yearly for a certain price per point. I can't remember what the price is currently. These points can only be used in the year purchased and cannot be banked. They can also only be used on reservations made during the 7 months prior to check in, so no home resort priority window is available if you want to buy these points.

You might have better options in seeing if another member could transfer points to you for a price. This would be similar to a rental, but the points would actually be transferred to your account rather than remaining in the original owner's account. You might be able to do it through a rental, but that would likely be pretty difficult to coordinate. Or it might be possible to book the remaining nights with cash. Or you could just buy more points.

It's up to 24 one-time-use vacation points at $15 per point.

From the member website:

One-Time-Use Vacation Points
See the details on how you can obtain a minimal number of additional vacation points to use towards your stay of choice.
As a Disney Vacation Club Member, occasionally you may find yourself in need of just few extra vacation points in order to book that perfect dream vacation. Previously, this required borrowing vacation points from a future use year, but very recently a new alternative was introduced. They're called "one-time-use" vacation points and are available for a fee of $15 ($13.33 plus $1.67 tax) per vacation point. Availability of one-time-use vacation points may be limited or suspended from time to time, and the fee is subject to change.
Details:
  • One-time-use vacation points are vacation points available for Disney Vacation Club Members to use as an alternative to borrowing vacation points from the following use year's allotment.
  • You can obtain a maximum of 24 one-time-use vacation points once per use year per membership.
  • A maximum of 24 one-time-use vacation points are processed in a single transaction, not multiple transactions.
  • The fee for one-time-use vacation points is $15 (including tax) per vacation point, and is subject to change.
  • One-time-use vacation points expire according to the use year of the reservation booked and are non-refundable, non-transferable and cannot be banked or borrowed.
  • One-time-use vacation points are not available for waitlist reservations.
  • One-time-use vacation points cannot be applied retroactively to existing reservations.
  • One-time-use vacation points are only available for Members whose contract is closed and in good standing.
  • One-time-use vacation points are available only for Disney Vacation Club Resorts, Disney Collection*, Adventurer Collection* and World Passport Collection reservations.

    * Available when you purchase directly from Disney.
  • One-time-use vacation points used for Disney Vacation Club resort reservations can only be used up to 7 months prior to arrival.
  • One-time-use vacation points for Disney Collection, Adventurer Collection and World Passport reservations can be used according to the booking guidelines for each individual collection.
