[QUOTE=5Demons4Cookie;967507]Ok, I looked at the point thing. Sounds good, but…I don’t know anyone here. Yes my trip is still 9-10 months off but, it’s still iffy. Not saying ya’ll are thieves and sitting out there waiting for my $. I’d really have to talk to dh about it.
I actually don’t mind the 2 room thing. We did it last yr with 9 people and still had plenty of room. I’d block the door with the table and chair if need be and unblock it when we left the room. The kids would not have their own room cards and the rooms would be joined. Also, if need be dh and I will each take a room, which chances are is what will happen. So if it comes down to it and dh won’t do the DVC point thing, and we still think FWC’s are not for us, then we’ll do 2 rms at a moderate. Fl resident rate would be approx $114 plus tax per adult per night pending hotel choice. Which saves us about $60 a night right there.
I’ve figured I’ll be calling WDW tomorrow to ask for maps of the hotels (if they even offer those) and asking about rates for FWC since I see none for Fl residents. I know Pop Music has the Family Suites, but something turned me off of them, and I can’t remember why now…
All my kids care about is the pool(s). :huh:
Thanks for the info on the DVC points though, I never heard of that before and will definitely talk to dh about it and go from there. [/QUOTE]
I totally understand your apprehension, but… this is done quite frequently, and the people on here are usually highly recommended. The risk is just as much to them as it is to you. Typically you would set up a very simple agreement and all would be fine. I have rented points to a member before and all went exceptionally well for both of us!
I understand your thought process with the moderates but the rates can get quite high. The DVC’s are very economical (especially at OKW) and could actually save you money and give you nicer accomodations, both visuallly and spacially! Lurk around on here, check out the DVC forums and do some research. Find the time you wish to go, someone can give you the amount of points that will be required for your stay and from there you can do your math. I am willing to bet the DVC woud be very comprable and much better for your family if not better than the mmoderate! I’m going to see what I find for February at OKW… I’ll be back!
