    I need advise from anyone who has rented points. This will be our first time and I don't want anything to go wrong. We are bringing a mom and her 3 kids with us that have never been (they lost their father a few years ago) and I really want this to be special. We're going 1/27-2/1.

    Normally we stay at POR. We love this resort but have always wanted to stay at AKL. By renting points, it's more affordable to stay there.

    Would you recommend I get the value, standard or savannah view? I have had people pm with a point price but what they are asking for each point would make the savannah view a little harder to do. But I don't want a parking lot view either. Do they ever upgrade DVC to a Savannah view?

    You need to read the FAQs on the Rent/Trade board.

    Also DVC does not upgrade, you get what you book, unless there is a maintenance issue that takes a room out of service, and they have to move you. That rarely happens though.

    The value rooms are smaller than the standard and savannah rooms.

    Is there availability? I know that I am going there the week before your trip and DVC is 100% booked. Since it is so new and only prtially built it has a huge demand so if there is availability you may not have much of a choice. From what I understand both value and standard *may* have a savannah view but only the SV is guaranteed.

    Good luck with your trip.

    I am going to close this thread. You should ask on the DVC boards. They will be able to help you.
