Yeah...the Value Resorts when there is a promotional discount (right now it is 20% I think) will be cheaper than renting DVC. But...the rooms are smaller and the resorts will be much more crowded. Also...comparing to a place like OKW where it is relaxing and spread out...it's worth the little extra if you can afford it.Amy wrote:So the Value resorts are cheaper than renting DVC points for the most part??theBIGyowski wrote:...The only thing that would keep me from renting DVC for every trip would be if we needed to save a little more money...thus putting us in a Value Resort....
Thanks for the websites. I really will check those out the next time we are headed to WDW and see what the options are
I honestly think that if you have an AP...renting DVC is a very cost-effective way to get the most out of the AP.
It can definitely be intimidating to pay someone to rent their DVC points as opposed to paying Disney directly and getting that guarantee...but as long as you have signed contracts you should be ok. I also like to think that I am helping the DVC owner out as well by helping them pay their maintenance fees...or even helping them make a little money if that is what they are looking to do. I think I said it before...but you can get a 10% discount on lunch at select restaurants on Disney property by showing them your room key...which says you are a DVC member even if you are renting. So more savings there.
