Looking at David's prices, yes, renting points would definitely not be much different than a mod with a king bed.
Hold on...BRB...I'll go check...Kadani from 6/15-20...studio...standard view for 82 points and 6/14-20 in savannah view for 120 points. SSR seems to be wide open from 6/16-30.

We are headed down in 34 (yes, thats right...Just 34 days!!!) and going kid free as well. We chose POP just on price point. It was cheaper for us to stay there and do a few extras that we want to do, like Cirque Du Soleil, a day at the beach, the fireworks party, and such. We even managed to get a BOG reservation! Sorry...I'm just a smidge excited.

But anyway, we stayed at CBR once with the kids. It was nice, but I did not care for the bus system. We were one of the furthest away from the main house. If we hadn't had our car there to drive to the pool and food court, it would have been a good walk, or a good ride on the bus to stop at almost all the stops before the main house.

Are you flying the JetBlue special ? Must be. that was a great deal for people with kids, we don't have any so couldn't take advantage unfortunately.

I second the rent points motion! My family and I have done it 3 times- fourth time in 3 weeks at SSR. I cant recommend it enough. You get a deluxe hotel experience at a mod price. If you can get a ressie def try Boardwalk or Beach club area. Lots of grown up stuff to do and walking distance to Epcot. Cant beat it!!! Second choice would be OKW or SSR- very close to DTD (SSR is walking distance) another excellent option.

I like the idea of a split stay as the pp said. If you cant decide try a couple resorts! I think I will do that on our next grown-up trip!

The earliest we could check in would be June 22. I should run these options by the dh and see what he thinks, but he always just wants me to plan everything!!

SSR wouldn't be a bad choice...can walk over to Downtown Disney to eat or drink or shop. For a studio the end of June it's 16 points/night (sun-thur) and 20 points/night (fri and sat). And it has availability from 6/22-30.

I am a DVC member and I looked up online on member website to see what's available. I only checked for a studio at SSR and AKV. What dates are you looking at...I have a point chart and can tell you how many points each place would take. Then you can go through David's to rent.

We are planning 5 nights..June 22-27. I'm not sure yet if my dh is interested in renting since there are no cancellations allowed, but the Epcot area would be my first choice although SSR being close to DTD is also nice. Thanks for your help!

Did you say "drive to the pool and food court"?! That doesn't sound like something I want to do!

There's absolutely no need to drive to OPR and the main pool. The farthest village has only the Pirate Themed rooms so you would have to book that category to be there. And even if you are, it's a 7-9 minute walk. There are over 750 non-preferred rooms that are under 5 minutes to get to OPR and the main pool.

There's also an internal shuttle, but we've never used it. Never felt the need to.

I voted POR for the boat to DD - more options for things to do at night. Yeehaw Bobs. Nice landscaped, relaxing resort.

But, if I was going no kids, I would try and rent DVC points, staying at BWV or BCW. We love Epcot and would love to end our days walking over for drinks and dinner around WS. Ultimately, I would love to do a split stay and try out two resorts. BW area and maybe AKL. Or BLT to be on Monorail to resort hop. Without kids it would probably be the best time for trying a split stay.

(OK, responding to your post is pumping me up to do Disney instead of an AI for anniversary. LOL)

Honestly, anywhere without kids for a few days is heavenly, so wherever you end up it will be awesome.
