We are DVC members and have done this several times when we are "points deprived". We have never had any problems. The last time we did this we booked POP and were asked at check in if we would "do them the honor of staying at Yacht Club instead". It was a hard decision but we did take them up on their offer.

Waiting to see what southwest has to offer for airfare. But as of right now I think we are flying Spirit out of AC b/c it's the cheapest.
Very excited to try AKL - we have always wanted to stay there, especially DD, who wants to be a vet. We couldn't believe it when we found out that DH's friend had DVC with AKL as home resort, and offered extra pts. at a great rate.
Yes, we fly SW out of Philly. Last trip we got their credit card w/50,000 pt. offer, and flew for free This trip will unfortunately be pricier. I have checked Spirit a few times, but it seems w/ baggage it comes out the same or more most times, unless you're in the $9 club. I know friends that are in the club and fly to Myrtle Beach really cheap. So far I booked the way down for $145, and waiting to see if way back comes down. That's the nice thing about SW w/ the no change fees - I can change my flight if a cheaper one comes out. I love Thanksgiving at Disney, but not best time for flight deals!
