Can anyone explain how to rent points that we have? We have used our points for DCL. Love cruising. If we could pay cash with our rented points, that would be great.

There is a renting board here on the DISboards, just read the stickies with the instructions. There are a few rules and restriction, so with few posts you might need to pay a subscription to be able to post there.

Or you can use one of the brokers. The Timeshare Store (the sponsor of this board, there is a banner up here) or David (the sponsor of the rental board) can find a renter for you, you just make the reservation and they'll pay you for the reservation. You should contact them if interested, but David gives you 10$ a point, the TSS maybe less, not sure.
Both got great feedback here.

People have reported he's only offering $11 per point for a limited time because he's been so short on points.

We're looking seriously at the DVC. Is it worth it only for DCL?
A better alternative (given what everyone has already posted) would be to put an appropriate amount of money into a vacation savings account each month.

IMO, DVC has been very clever at getting people to pay monthly for their points - then when it comes time to book, you are booking with "points", which don't seem like real money. PLUS, you have no lodging bill at check out, so your stay seems "FREE". (Of course, it really isn't, but it's hard not to feel that way)!

We can do the same thing for ourselves - save a monthly amount towards vacation and then when it comes time to book, you have the money. (If you have the money to buy DVC, you have the money to put aside). IMO, it really stinks to be paying for a vacation AFTER it's over, LOL. I like that feature of DVC.

Not to hijack... but what about member only cruises? They seem a lot easier to book and you have to pay at least one person's fare with points, right?

Are there any other member cruise benefits, I.e. is there more camaraderie ? Are people more considerate ?

If you have at least some points directly purchased from Disney, you can go on the member cruise. You are allowed to pay cash for all travelers in your cabin for this cruise. You do not have to pay for one on points for the member cruises.

Member cruises are more expensive than comparable non-member DCL cruises. Cruisers on the member cruises receive some special gifts and it's reported there are special entertainment offerings. I haven't been on a member cruise so perhaps some of those that have will respond to your atmosphere question. There are some recent threads on the member cruises, so if you do a search,you can find more info on them.
