    I am tryng to decide whether to rent out some points and use the money to pay for a cruise, or just use my points for a cruise.
    I want to go on the July 1-4 cruise and be back at the parks for July 4th. There are openings on the cruise right now, but I am having some cash problems due to my father's recent passing.
    If the amount I wind up paying for the money I get for selling points works out to be about what I would use in points it just might be easier for me to use points.
    Did anyone understand what I just wrote because even I am confused now. Peggie

    My two cents -

    If you rented your points (at approx $10 per) it would be more beneficial to you as your point trade off value to the cruise will cost you much more.

    Minimum point allotment for a 3 day cruise for the dates you listed is 96 points each for 2 people in a standard inside room for a total of 192 points at the going rate of $10 (plus or minus - don't want to start that debate all over again) would give you $1920.00. The rack rate for this room would be $409 - $899 per person ($818 - $1798) so even if you paid the highest possible rate you would still save money by renting your points. With some negotiation skills you may find you save a tremendous amount of money by renting your points and paying cash for the cruise. This extra money will come in handy at the parks and such...

    Technically you do owe income taxes on rental income.

    That said, consult a tax advisor. Anything any of us tell you is not worth much when you meet your local IRS agent.
