One person under the age of three doesn't count towards room occupancy. There is a pack and play in the villa for that child.

BLT studios are the smallest of all the DVC villas (in case you were thinking about that one). DVC members usually book 11 months in advance at their home resort and seven months out at a non-home resort. December is an extremely busy time for DVC.

From my reading/understanding, under 3 does not Count towards room occupancy. But with that said, you may just want to spend a bit more and get the one bedroom....

We rented points from a DVC owner once. Turned out to be okay, but I was on pins and needles the entire time before our trip thinking he could possibly cancel the trip without our knowledge.

For that reason, I would always advise to rent from a reputable place or someone you know. It makes for a better overall experience.

The cost from moving up to a 1 bedroom from a studio is $double$. You do get more room but still will only have 1 real bed(not counting OKW).

We just booked with David's website and got what we wanted within a day! We are just amazed at how much we saved from the rack rate! I know this will probably be the way we go to the world from now on. I kind of think of this as our "little secret" about getting more for our resort, but paying less.

Our last 2 trips & this upcoming one we are renting points! It's the only way we will go now seeing how nice it is to stay at a deluxe villa for about same as a moderate hotel room. This past November trip & this upcoming September trip we rented from the same person and it's so smooth and easy!

We have used DVC Rental store twice. They are great to work with.

No, the OKW one bedroom will still only have one real bed - the king bed in the master bedroom. The living room has the queen sized sleeper sofa and twin sized sleeper chair. But the OKW studio will have two queen sized beds, no sleeper sofa like all the other studios.

We had our agreement emailed to us and we paid for the resort. Is that it really is simple of a process? I have to print out the email and bring it with us at check in...it just seems so simple, I thought there would be to it?!? In the back of my head I have that fear of showing up and them saying ''no such reservation'' Can I call the resort when our trip gets a little closer and check that way? I'm sure everything will be fine but DH has got me a little nervous. If you have rented points before is it this easy? I don't know if I'm allowed to post the name of the place I used to rent points from? It's not the one advertised on these boards.
You will not be able to call the resort, only members can call and check on DVC reservations through Member Services. Calling any resort # will only get you a Disney call center.

If you have your Conf #, which you should, you can do online check in.

Also you can check the conf. # at www.mydisneyreservation.com/dvc
