Disney Dining Plan Questions/Dilemma

My fiancee and I are trying to determine the best way to deal with the following situation. We have come up with a couple of scenarios, but we figured we would open the floor for discussion in case we have overlooked any good options.

We will be on our honeymoon from 9/29-10/12 for a total of 14 days, 13 nights. Our first 8 nights will be spent at the Boardwalk Villas using rented points. Our next 5 nights we are moving to BLT using our own points.

Ideally, we were planning on doing maybe 6 or 7 nights worth of dining plan in order to hit some of the pricier TS locations and then paying for the rest of our 2 weeks OOP. This is where we run into a bit of an issue. We wanted to be able to spread out our 6/7 days worth of meals over the 2 weeks and not have to shove them all into the first or second half. If we wanted meals right when we arrived, we would need the individual who we rented points from to add that meal plan for us, thus inducing another money transfer. Also, those meals would expire at the end of our BWV stay, on 10/7. Conversely, if we booked the DP on our own reservation, they wouldn't be available until we checked into BLT on 10/8 and we are now shoving all those meals into the second half of our vacation.

The only real way of being able to spread out those meals over the 2 weeks that we have come up with is to purchase a 3 or 4 night DP on our rented reservation and then another 3 nights or so on our own reservation. This way, we can spread out the meals and just make sure we don't have any credits left over at the end of each period.

Anybody else have any suggestions?
