There is a link to all the DVC resort point charts at the top of any of the forum pages on the DVC Forums here on the DISBoards.

I always just use dvcrequest.com - he has a points calculator where you just put in your dates and it adds it all up and tells you what you need. Handy! If only you could check the availability too that would be AWESOME! I always feel like such a pest! But these girls are great DIS-ers!

If you hang around on this forum, you might talk to me when you think your dream woukd come true (or prefferably two years prior). Two years ago I added on before the restrictions went into place. I have many more points than we can use. So far in our 2011 & 2012 use years I haven't had points that were going to go to waste. However, what the future holds remains to be seen. When I get to a point that I can't use up my banked points, I'll really need to look into renting them out.

I will definitely do that! But I'm a DVC newbie....what are the new restrictions? And thank you so much for even the thought.....how AWESOME you have so many points. You must have had some amazing trips in the past!

I forgot to ask - is this something they normally leave in the room for DVC members? It was such a great surprise, and those vanilla cupcakes were to die for. I wasn't sure if it was just a routine thing, or if someone actually had them sent to us.

Hmmm - maybe this is something new? I've never seen this arrangement before either. Nice!

Tara - did you have any kind of "celebration" listed? (if you did, I want to know what it was so I can list that for my next stay too! )

Nope no celebration listed. Our TV was broken & they sent someone up to fix it while we were out at a park, and this was in the room when we got back. I thought maybe they sent it up because of that? Also when we checked into WL we had a gift basket from the room inventory manager - he went to high school with us (many, many moons ago) and recognized our name when assigning our room. He had called over to AKV to see if our villa was ready the day we switched - maybe he had something to do with it? Or maybe the person I rented points from arranged it. Who knows! There was no card with it so I'm perplexed. But I've never had a better vanilla cupcake in my life!

The restrictions are on resale points purchased after March 2011. They can only be used at DVC villas, not for cruises or hotel trade outs. I've only been a member for about five years and for various health issues with my spouse, we've only had a handful of vacations since buying DVC. I hope we have more in the future, but the ones we have had have been pretty wonderful. I'm a little over halfway through my TR from the last one. I posted the updates here that related to the AKL.

We were surprised in our room once with milk on ice and a tray of chocolate chip cookies and zebra domes. No card for us either, but I had mentioned to the CM at the front desk that my DH had been sick and missed a day in the parks but was feeling better & going out. When we got back to the room that night we had that lovely tray waiting.

Sounds to me like you know the right people!

It's those extra things (both big & small) that Disney does to make our vacations so magical!

You would think I had one the lottery if someone left me a tray of cupcake in my room.

Exactly 2 months from today I will be walking into that beautiful lobby and smellin' the sweet smell of AKL.

The kids and I created our AKL countdown calendar. Thought I would share:
