Great Thread

After reading the thread I am cautiously optomistic toward renting points. It has been recommended by a trusted source and this thread gives great feedback on the ins and outs of renting. Thanks for the info!!!

Hi all,
Great site, I read a ton here about the points system (in an attempt to try not to ask a stupid question) and I think I get the gist. Also, I personally could care less about the "no refunds" clause-par for the course in this type of transaction IMO.
BUT- What I don't know is whats the best way to go about buying the points. I want 7-9 days at the BWV for the first or second week of Dec '08. Should I just throw that up on the board? or do I have to hunt down a posting for BWV, as you can't just buy up "loosie" points as I originally thought. I was thinking I might try the meal plan, do I need to state that at the outset as well?
I would like the extra space of a "condo" type room, but this is way harder work out then booking at the Poly'. Is it worth the hassle? Thoughts, comments, snide remarks?
Cheers

yeah, "points" won't do you any good as you can't use them as a nonmember - you are renting a reservation.

at this point, you will need to find someone who has already booked the nights you are looking for (either intending to sell it in the first place or an owner whose plans have changed.) it's a bit late to be looking for a dec reservation now - especially for a smaller DVC resort like BWV - the waitlist for dec started in february.

yes, the owner will have to book things like the meal plan (DDP) or ME for you.

I would like the extra space of a "condo" type room, but this is way harder work out then booking at the Poly'. Is it worth the hassle? Thoughts, comments, snide remarks?

i hated the lack of control (and i also had trouble getting an owner response the first time due to starting late), so i bought a small contract.

if you don't go to wdw all the time, that's not a great option for you, but i agree that you do pay a price in nonfinancial terms even if renting DVC gets you a cheaper price than CRO. (BTW, CRO inventory is different than what is available to owners on points, so if you can afford a higher price for condo-style accomodations, that might be your best hope for finding availability at this point...you'd also get normal xcel policies and daily housekeeping.)

No, you do NOT have to make that decision at the outset. You can make it up to about 3-4 days prior to your arrival, although I certainly would not recommend that a renter wait that late.

As stated above, YOU can't make arrangements for DDP or DME. Those have to be made by the owner, through MS. You should not delay those decisions until the last minute, because you are depending on a) being able to get in touch with the owner promptly, and b) them being available to make the calls for you.

I would set things up as soon as you're sure you want DDP. Things left to the last minute tend to fall through the cracks...especially if you are depending on someone else.

Ok, so I have the rental paid in full from the people who are renting from me. I have added the dining plan and DME to their reservations. Is there anything else I need to make sure to do before their stay? Then at check in they just show up and check in as we would if we were staying??

Thanks!

chalee94 & JimMIA,
Thanks for the info. Looks like a moot point for this Dec. I will talk it over with the family and see if they want to wait 'till next Dec or forge ahead with a conventional reservation.
If we wait, could I put it on the board as looking for Dec '09? If I understand the system, some member may already know that next year is a no-go for them. Does anyone strike a deal that far in advance- but not actually book until 2/09?
Cheers

i would wait till at least oct or nov before i went looking for an owner at the resort i wanted to stay at...who i would need to find by january (11 months in advance of check-in) to make the reservation.

that's JMO, but if you find someone early, i guess that could work as well...

Hope this is helpful and appropriate to post on this thread.

I'm new here, so please be patient with me. What's the difference between regular ole rental points and Reservation Points? What types of points are needed for a DVC vacation? I'm confused.
