Just checked the members website...

AKL is available from Sat. thru Sun. for Studio Standar & Savannah.
AKL Studio Value is available Sun, Mond, & Tues. & Thur. & Fri. If youre able to rent points, maybe doing like 5 nights from Sunday to Fri. Cheapest amount of points used & Flights may be reasonable, being that it's not a Saturday..

Who is going? just you & DH?

What is better for a 2 bedroom at kidani with a. Savana view. Is it better to get a lockoff or a dedicated 2 bedroom . Does one have better locations than the other . I want to be very close to the lobby. Prefferably giraffe trail. What are the advantages of a dedicated over a lockoff . Thanks

Well. just was checking to see if Studio was big enough . If Dylan was going or not.

For a Standard studio from Sun- Friday it would be 80 points to reserve this room
For a Savannah studio same days it would be 95 points.
For a value for the 1st three nights it would be 39 points then switching to standard for 2 nights & it would be 32 more---total71 pts.

I believe most of those sites to rent are usually$13 a point so in essence
The most expensive would run $1,235. For Standard $1,040 For value & split stay it would be $923.

This provided you go through the middle man...eg. Davids Rental or others.

If you go on the website you may be able to get somone thats getting rid of their pts for $12 a point, but being that its so close to the date, you can possibly snag up a real deal at like $10 a pt or even up to $8 a point.

A substantial savings.

Check out the DVC rent forum.

Kimmar - I don't know why they wouldn't like you.

For a first time rental, I would go through a company like David's. True, you pay more per point, but you also have more peace of mind. When you rent through an individual, there has to be mutual trust.......... usually not a problem, but you could get scammed (it happens ).

It doesn't surprise me if their website is acting up. Call them.

Drive??? At least do a cost/time comparison?


I have to leave for the day. I hope when I come back later this evening, I can read that you've booked your trip, Kimmar.

....it isn't worth it to me to drive 1,500 miles[which translates to about 19 hours] for a 4-to-5 day WDW trip.

....just for the heck of it, I tried 4/6 - 4/11 and got a price of $2,495.46 for room, tax, 4-day tix, and dining and added the $381.60 for airfare [directly from Jet Blue], which totals $2,877.06.....
