Question Renting VS cash sale for Kidani 1 BDRM in value season

I have pretty much decided that for my next trip, I will be staying in a 1 Bdrm villa at Kidani. It seems like it will meet our needs the best, and I love AKL, so I am sure we will love Kidani. This will be my first NON Club Level stay, I prefer the setup and look of the rooms at Kidani to the AKL villas -- so I don't mind forgoing CL my next trip. Actually, it will be a great time for us to try out deluxe DDP

I am wondering, would it be better to rent points and pay OOP for everyday housekeeping? Can we add on the ddp when we rent?
Or would we be better off just going through CRO and paying cash sale? And making a package as we've always done?

I am thinking of going in Jan 2015 / or Oct Nov 2014 -- depending on pricing at that time ..... I definitely will need to book in value season and would really like to avoid the excessive Aug/sept heat this time! We've been in Mid Jan once and beginning of FEB once , and where blessed with decent weather both times I like Jan/FEB value pricing!

I know renting means we have to be solid on our dates -- a thing that's sometimes hard for this wishy washy resort changing gal! would renting and paying OOP for deluxe ddp and tickets be cheaper than paying outright and booking with Disney? Also if I rent, I'd need to pay for the add on housekeeping, it's just something I enjoy when I stay at a hotel
Thanks for any thoughts!

Thanks Kook
