You can ask for it, but it rarely happens.

We hang out by the ppol the last day. i get packed early in the morning, and keep our swim suits out and a change fo cloths. We then swim till 2:00 or so, and change cloths by the pool before we start the 16 hour drive home.

Seems like we can save a ton and gain a lot of space staying offsite even with a rental car.

So I was looking at SPM blue tree resorts. Fantasy World Resort and now Bonnett Creek.

What I am not understanding is on Booking.com i am getting a quote of 619 for our 5 nights in a 2br villa at bonnett creek...sounds great..
even the other two I am getting under 700
but if i look at their sites I am getting a MUCH higher # how can there be such a huge difference?
the spm blue tree site is telling me per night price of close to what the total is on hotel.com.
I'm trying to figure out the same thing! Got 2 quotes from owners on vrbo...1 was $1200 for 2 bedroom and the other was $860 for 2 bedroom (both were 2 bedroom deluxe and for the same week). Just got a Quote from VS for 2 bedroom...and only $625! Why the insane differences in cost??

5Mouseketeersforus - Did they charge you the $12/day resort fee when you checked in? Thanks.

Never mind. I see the fee is not effective until Feb. 15th.

Not a deal breaker but we're renting two rooms so $84 twice.

Have you gotten quotes from vacation strategies and Vacation Upgrades? I would get those and compare them to what you got on booking.com.

Owners can charge whatever they want to rent out their points. I think some of them quote the price lower up front under the assumption that they can rebook you later at the lower point cost.

is this the same place you are all talking about? It looks really nice. I don't understand any of the points rental stuff so I am just trying to find something I can easily book.

So can the rate change if they can't book at that rate for the lower point cost? I'm probably going to book with VS but am waiting on a quote with VU.

I booked last week from booking.com at the Orlando Bonnet Creek. It was cheaper than Wyndham Bonnet Creek on the same site. I was told the difference in price may be presidential vs deluxe. But be advised add 12.5% tax onto your quoted price. I was quoted 525 but was charged 598 on my cc due to the tax. Were not going to dec so i cant tell you how it turns out till then.

Are you certain you've booked the Wyndham Bonnet Creek that we're discussing here? There's a Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek.

There is lots of info about VS on these boards. I haven't read anything negative. We used them last year and I recently booked with them again for this year. We had zero issues with them. They were by far the cheapest I found and I shopped and got quotes from everywhere. You wont be sorry !!
