We paid double that for a beach house at Dauphin Island last summer. In any event, I think I'm almost sold on staying offsite. I'm sure I'll have many more questions as I continue planning the trip!

One more question--where do I go to look into a DVC rental?

Thanks again!

There are a couple of places that you can look. The DVC Rent/Trade board here on the Disboards has owners who list available points and reservations. There is also a sticky thread near the top of that forum called "How to Use This Board". READ IT! You'll learn a lot about renting points from it. You can also ask questions about renting points on the other DVC forums as long as you do not include your dates or the resort that you want to rent at. That would be viewed like a "looking to rent" post, which is not permitted.

You can also learn about point rentals from the FAQs on David's Vacation Club Rentals. I have never dealt with him personally, but several members have and they say that he is very good at answering questions and gets back to you quickly.
Opinions, suggestions and comments are based on my own experience and should not be regarded as the absolute and only possible outcome of any situation.
Your mileage may (and probably will) vary.

I vote for off site. We have been to WDW 8 time with our 9th trip planned for late Match 2013. We have stayed off site for all trips except for a Surprize trip for me in Aug. stayed at AKL. It was a very nice place but I still love staying off site better.

We always book from this website:

We are renting a 4 bedroom 3 bath house for $800.00 for the week with a heated pool.

Off site gives everyone the opportunity to find their own space. Which I find to be so great after a long day in the parks!

Best of luck in what ever you choose!!!

growing up we always camped at Fort Wilderness, which is still one of my favorite places to stay. I would highly recommend it, even if you choose a cabin. Now that I am living in Europe, I bought a small dvc contract which allows us to bank and borrow almost enough points for our stay every other year, and what I need over that for the years we want to stay dvc, I rent through another member or one of the agencies, or transfer in from others like my mom. It has earned us more than enough in savings, so if you think you will travel often, try to see if you can find a small enough contract that will allow dvc travel every few years. We also usually try another hotel for the remaining night(s) by using the discounts disney posts. Good Luck!
