I don't know what a "bounce back" is, but if you have entered into a contract with someone renting points, I would read the contract. If it were me renting the points, I would have a non-refundable deposit attached to the rental agreement just to guard myself against someone making a flighty decision to change from renting points to booking on cash.

What I think a bounce back offer is is when you make reservations for your next trip at a discounted rate. I wasn't sure if you had to currently be in a room in which you paid cash for as opposed to renting points for your current room. I think I had seen somewhere that when you rent DVC points you would not be eligible for a bounce back rate....but I'm not sure! I'm just earning my ears

No, you won't get one of those. As a DVC member, they figure that the people staying in the room on points are members, so we don't get those kinds of offers. I remember when we used to pay for rooms, they had those in the room. Didn't know what they were called, but it makes sense, just like on the cruise, they try to hook you into coming back before you leave.

With DVC they know you are coming back so they don't have to offer you a sweet deal.

We are looking at renting DVC Points. A value Savannah room at AKL.

Do all of the rooms have a pullout sofa or are there some rooms that have 2 queen beds?

Is the sofa comfortable for an adult??

The only DVC studios that have two beds and not the bed/queen set up are at OKW.

Also, I wanted to point out that while some of the value villas at AKV have a savanna view, it is not possible to request that view specifically. You won't have a guaranteed savanna view, you could also end up with a view of the pool or a view of the parking lot/bus station.

I wasn't ignoring you, just didn't know the answer...
We didn't get a bounce back offer when we were there a few days ago. (Paying cash, staying at Jambo House, regular room.) But, I didn't push for one because I knew we couldn't do it anyway.

Good luck!!!! Someone here should have your answer...

.....just saw this: "bounce-back' refers to a great offer on a possible upcoming vacay while you are still a guest at any particular WDW resort....it doesn't pertain to DVC members....

I must tell you that the worst TP I have ever experienced is at the Pentagon, single ply, paper, almost like tablet paper, I think I could write on it...

Everyone complains about it, but nothing is ever done...


AKL paper is much better than that..

The breakfast after the Sunrise Safari is served in the back room of Pizzafari. A WDW chef prepares the delicious food and will describe all the goodies on the table.
