Another great thread! Saving...
Only the member may contact Member Services, so anything that gets added to the reservation (or changed or canceled) must be done by the member. That includes adding the Dining Plan, adding Magical Express, requests, names and addresses of the those in the traveling party, etc.thank you so much for posting this! I was about to ask just about all the questions that were answered. LOL One other question. Are the only things the member has to arrange for the renter dining & ME?
DVC does not offer packages - you are on your own for tickets. You may purchase those in advance or at check in or not at all.If we want to purchase a Magic Your Way Premium package, is that possible when staying at a DVC? I'm not sure what all is included when you rent a DVC. Thanks so much for any help!
Thanks for the info. We'll see in about a year what we can afford. At this point we're thinking of staying at the Poly or BC - maybe even POR.Lets say I want to rent a 2 bedroom villa at BCV next sept (11 months away). If I find an owner whose home resort was BCV, they could book it 11 months out - is that right?
Now if I can't find a BCV owner I have to wait until the 7 month time frame to rent points from a non BCV owner?
We're a family of 5 so - more space the better w/a kitchen and washer dryer would be awesome. I would love to stay at AKV but i'm sure so would thousands
the nice thing about AKV is that a family of 5 has the option of squeezing into a 1BR (non-value) room, if some are younger and don't mind sleeping on a pullout. if you prefer to spend a little extra for a 2BR, i doubt you'll be disappointed.
I am in hopes that we'll be able too. Monies are very tight now especially going into winter (oil, etc.). I will definitely keep researching.Don't be surprised if you can rent a 2 br at a DVC resort for less than you can do at Poly or BC,if you are a little flexible.A family of 5 usually will need two hotel rooms so you double the cost of your lodging. When you get ready, do your homework and crunch some numbers and see where you are.
This was looked at years ago, something along the lines of an E-Bay type feedback system.I remember reading somewhere where someone asked if maybe a review or referral thread might happen on here. Is that a possibility??
In addition to the concerns Caskbill outlined, a feedback system wouldn't help anyway for those who have very few posts. Obviously, they wouldn't have many transactions either so I don't know if that would help since there would be such small amounts of feedback.I remember reading somewhere where someone asked if maybe a review or referral thread might happen on here. Is that a possibility?? I am just asking because I am thinking about renting points for an ann. stay in Oct. 2008, (newbie renter) I have been reading some of the posts in the DVC rent/trade thread and a lot of people having points for rent are VERY new members on here.
Just my 2 cents, but as an owner who has rented points I would not feel comfortable with this "clause" or arrangement.I think they are talking about subletting.
You rent and need to cancel. Your landlord can't cancel without functionally losing their points, but they will allow YOU to rerent your reservation and they'll change the name on the reservation for you (which only the owner can do).

This was rejected for a number of reasons, some of them being possible legal consequences.
The DIS would have no way to verify any feedback, and it's not uncommon that some people would have their friends, family, give them 'great feedback' to 'stack' the rating in their favor.
There are no plans to have any type of feedback system at this time, and it is highly unlikely any such system will ever be developed in the future.
Thank you for letting me know & for all the info about this subject.In addition to the concerns Caskbill outlined, a feedback system wouldn't help anyway for those who have very few posts. Obviously, they wouldn't have many transactions either so I don't know if that would help since there would be such small amounts of feedback.
