Extreme DVC newbie with a ton of questions
We are in the very early planning stages of our November 2010 trip (our 2nd time to DW!!!). We are a family of 5 (2 adults, 3 kids - will be 5, 11 and 15 at trip time). From all my reading I'd narrowed it down to the all star music family suites but someone on the budget board mentioned it might be cheaper to rent from DVC. I have no idea how that works or what it includes. We were trying to do it during value season (no idea if seasons even exist in dvc properties) and were also planning on doing one of the dining plans.
If anyone can give me a run down of how it works and what I need to know to get started with my research I'd be very grateful! I don't know anything about the properties or anything.

With 5 you will need at least a 1 br so it will not be cheaper than the all star suites, have you looked at the cabins at FW (still more than all star but you get a kitchen and you can take the boat to MK).
If you look at the threads at the top of the rental section there is lots of good info on renting.

What you are doing is renting a reservation from a member who made the reservation using their DVC points. The member fully controls the reservation at all times until you check into the resort.
If you check the Rent/Trade Board on the DVC boards and read the threads at the top of of the board, you should be able to get a lot of information.

You might want to read the Considering Renting from a DVC Member? thread... but i'd agree that the suites would probably be cheaper.
