I apologize if this has been asked before, but does BC offer fullsized baby cribs or only pack n plays? We can't go with the pnp or a "wait to see if it's available" scenario, we WILL need a crib when we get there (so if they don't have them, I will be renting one).... Thanks!

If that's the case, I'd recommend going ahead and renting one.

I'm honestly not sure what the crib/pack&play situation is at the resort, but since it's a timeshare resort and not a hotel, i wouldn't expect a lot of extras like you might get at a regular full-service hotel.

They have pack 'n' plays and they high chairs.

If you want a full crib, I would rent. I've stayed in a lot of Orlando hotels and never seen a full crib.

We would love to hear from those that have rented thru Ken Price and/or VS. Hopefully someone on here has rented from both and can give us some insight as to why we would pay the extra $200+ to go with Ken. We would kinda feel bad if we go with VS because Ken has been very helpful thus far (answered a few emails), but $215 is a lot of obey that would be well spent somewhere else.

So any info....better service with Ken? Horror stories from VS?

Thanks for any help!
I rented with Ken last year, and I just booked through him for Easter of next year. I know VS is usually cheaper, but Ken & Denise have been around for years and years and I've never heard one bad thing about them. They respond to emails ASAP, and I just really like feeling like they are 100% trustworthy. I know that more people use VS now and everything seems to work out, but I've read lots of posts about people not hearing back from emails, especially right before a trip. If you don't stress easily, VS is probably a good choice. To me, it wasn't worth the $150 (we're going for 10 nights) to be worried. I have total confidence that VU is still going to be around 11 months from now.

To ease any ongoing worries for anyone who has booked with VS
We are due to arrive late on Thurs, May 16 and I called the resort today to notify them of our very late arrival. We were in the system and the front desk person made a note of our arrival time.
We haven't received any confirmation info from VS but they have obviously followed through with our reservation and I don't anticipate any issues.

What dates are you staying? When I inquired about Easter, I was quoted $120/night.

We are staying 4/18-4/25, so right at Easter. $840/wk translates into $120/night.

Now if you were asking about VS prices then all I can say is the $625 was an online we received after inputting the dates mentioned above.

After reading a bunch on this board and even corresponding with Ken about the difference we have decided overwhelmingly to book with Ken... Even though we will pay more. Peace of mind being one reason and Ken's professionalism and timeliness in his communication for another!

It really boils down to what each person is comfortable with and what factors in the most fir your decision making.... Kinda like "onsite vs. offsite".... What's important to ya?

We have our dates, we have our place and now just about 347 days or so til we arrive! So, we are happy thus far.

Good luck on your decision!

Sorry, yes, I was referencing the VS price. We have a reservation with them for February, but were thinking about Easter as well. FWIW, so far our experience with VS has been good. They gave us a quote via e-mail and somebody called us and left a direct extension number. When I called with a few questions he said that I had been misquoted and I thought that it would be more, but it was slightly less, so that was good! I feel comfortable booking with them.
