We used it in February before the charge. We found it wasn't as crazy as the Disney buses but crowded at times. Times were good but last bus from the parks was sometimes before the park closed.

If you read back a couple of pages, people have recently been posting their experience with the two. We have reserved with VS because it was quoted $220 less than the quote we received from Ken and we're already going at an expensive time, so I'll save what I can get! I've talked to VS on the phone and they were very helpful and prompt. I don't anticipate a problem, but this is our first time booking/staying at BC.

We are headed to WBC this week and I have one question...

Do the coffee pots take basket style filters or cone style?

Hi, am planning another trip to Disney and will be in a 1 bedroom at WBC. I've stayed before, but was in a 2 bedroom unit. Does the 1 bedroom unit have a jacuzzi type tub.

Yes! It is in a room between the bathroom and the bedroom, and has the Jacuzzi and a sink.

We are booked thru VS the 4th thru the 12th. We booked back in Jan and my sister just checked with Ken to get the 60 day out rate and was told that he was all booked up thru July. He did have the last week in June available.

They give you a supply for a day or two but not for the whole length of your stay

Rates differ for various reasons. I have never rented from vacation strategy but I have heard good things. This will be my 6th rental from Ken price and unless there was a crazy difference, I will always go with him. I don't even worry about anything. For me, even if the difference was a couple hundred bucks I would still use them just for the convenience, and customer service. THe only way to find out if to call and ask for a quote. He will get right back to youl

I am looking to surprise my family with a trip in late February (the week after President's Day/Week) as it will be school vacation week in New Hampshire and we might be able to catch a spring training game if we're lucky. Our APs also won't have expired by this point and it would be nice to get in one last trip before they do.

We generally stay on site but we might want to take a trip over to Universal and staying at any of the Disney hotels requires two rooms to squeeze everyone in. Since people seem to like Wyndham Bonnet Creek so much, I thought I would look into it and rent a minivan to drive everyone around.

I got a quote for a 2BR from VS for about $162 a night and a 3BR for about $222 a night. I see that if I wait until the 60 day booking window with vacationupgrades.com that I might be able to get the 2BR for $120 a night, it just makes me nervous to wait that long before reserving accommodations. Booking now with them would put me in at a rate of $200 a night. So it's possible that vacationupgrades could save me about $40 a night or be more expensive by $40 a night depending on availability at the 60 day window

When booking with VS, I can lock in the reservation with a deposit of $300 and they want the difference about 2-4 weeks before check in from what I've read. How does booking with vacationupgrades work?

Thanks for any help in advance!

With Ken at Vacation upgrades, you can book at the regualar rate and then if he can rebook you at the 60 day mark he lowers your price. He works very hard to rebook. I would tell him when you want to go and see what he thinks he can do. He has an excellent sense of the possibility of being able to rebook. This is my 4th trip thru him. All three times (January/February/August and he was able to rebook) However, BC is getting very popular!

Vacation Strategies Club?

Has anyone heard of Vacation Strategies Membership "Club"? VS seems to have a separate membership club that allows access to some of the Disney Vacation Club resorts for really really cheap. I got an ad in my Facebook feed from them yesterday, and now I am very interested.

They post new deals on Mondays, and it appears the Disney resorts are not there this week. Just as an example, they had the Wilderness 1 bedroom for 7 nights at around $980. Animal Kingdom Lodge 1 BR was closer to $1300 for 7 nights in July. Before I bother calling, I wanted to know if anyone else is seeing this. There is no pricing on their site.

Here is a link to their club site:
