With availability being so limited, I'd be surprised if there were any available for cash.

That said, someone reported a while ago that it was $1010 per night for a 1br. Someone else reported that you couldn't book it until 60 nights out, but that was from a couple of years ago.

When were you looking to go?

Don't have any plans yet, and when we do it will be on points. It's our home resort. Just curious what the cash value is.

I love the floor plan we have stayed in several of the studios on the park side but we are thinking of a pool view (request) for this July trip. I wonder if 1509 has a slider to the pool, I can remember?

thanks!

Thanks in advance!

With our first baby on the way and grandparents wanting to visit Disneyland with us, we figured an add on was in our future. We have 100 points, and it works for the two of us, but we wanted more for our growing family. We've been watching the resales for a few weeks now, but the PERFECT contract became available this weekend. 50 points, August UY, $85/point. It just so happens we wanted 50 more points (or 300, but we'll start small! ) in our August UY. We felt fortunate. The contract is with Disney waiting for ROFR now. Can't wait use those new points.

These rates are 2 years old, and they weren't easy to get (had to call a few different numbers), but in Apr 2010 the rates were...

Magic season rack rates (without tax)
Studio - $575 weekday, $645 weekend
1BR - $1,015 weekday, $1,140 weekend
2BR - $1,255 weekday, $1,410 weekend

I needed the prices to help us set a shared cost for DSIL since we were combined treating their parents to a 50th anniversary trip (we settled on $300/night for their contribution - they took the 2nd dedicated BR, in-laws were in the master, and we took the foldout for the week).

None of the first floor patios have direct access to the pools. The easiest patio to access the pool would be 1516 (facing Redwood Creek), which is near a seldom used gate (with room key access). 1516 is the Handicap Accessible studio.

May you pass ROFR
Keeping all your points in the same UY makes things easier
Even with only one UY, I managed to forget to bank a few points
(I ended up using them, so they did not go to waste)
