Our first experience with dvc was through renting. Our primary reason was that our first 2 visits to the world was in Ft wilderness cabins and after having all that space it was really hard for us to go back to staying in a tiny hotel room (we tried values after that, talk about a disaster) We rented from a disser and it was a great experience. I totally admit to being nervous but my owner went out of her way to answer my billions of questions and kept me in the loop. We gave her 1/3 down, then another 1/3 4 months prior and the final payment we fedexed to her a week before the trip. She copied us on all reciepts and stuff from disney. We ended up purchasing soon after.
