Just stumbled onto this post today. I could have written this post myself (w/the exception of the little girl (I have 2 boys) and my DH is disney obsessed, and we will only be doing the DDP). I would really like to stay deluxe this time around, but pricing out resorts on the website I was getting discouraged. I checked out Davids Disney point rentals too and couldn't believe that we may be able to stay deluxe in a studio as well. Funny enough Beach Club (my dream resort) is on my list too. Wonder if we will be there the same time? We were thinking we would need to do CBR b/c of price. Let us know how renting points goes. I'm nervous as well, but I can't beat the price. I can't wait to read your report

Following along. Beach Club is my favorite resort for the decorations/theming. However, I would absolutely love to be be able to walk to the MK. Either one would be fabulous.
The ticker had to be deleted. All hope is not lost though. I don't know how. I don't know when. But I'm going back!

I'm here, Shannon. I cannot believe that my two summer trips are wrapped around yours and we will miss.

I'm so looking forward to another one of your family TR's.

Following along!

We rented points last year to stay in a 2BR at OKW (we went through **************.com though). I think their prices were very slightly lower than David's. I can't really comment on David's service obviously, never having used his site to rent points, but based on many positive reviews on the dis, I shall assume that it was comparable to the service we received from his competitor. As far as renting points in general, I highly recommend it. It's a WAY less expensive way to stay DVC vs going directly through Disney. The only downsides, for us, were: You pay a lot more upfront to make the booking (compared to the $200 donw payment that Disney requires!) and no daily mousekeeping service! Neither one are a deal breaker to me, but worth mentioning. Oh and having to submit a request and then wait for the return email with availability, then emailing again to book for sure, then getting a confirmation. It's just a lot of back & forth, when comparing to booking online or on the phone w/ Disney where you get instant gratification.

We booked through disney for this year's vacation, but next year I am fairly certain we will rent points again (It's normal to plan next year's vacation when you haven't gone on this year's yet, right? RIGHT?!?!).

OH, and I am in for an ADR guessing game. I like the idea of guessing by the day

Can't wait to see your plans start to take shape!

Yay! I'm definitely here. And can I just say that I LOVE how many people are playing the ADR game? I really do, I never realized it would be such a hit! Hooray!

Can't wait to see where you're staying!
