From a great fall break at Walt Disney World! It was a wonderful time to go, as we got to attend Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party for the first time, Food & Wine Festival, and were there for the soft opening of New Fantasyland!
Cast includes the typical Mom, Dad, and Rachel, as well as my boyfriend, Max, and Rachel’s hall mate, Addie.
I managed to convince my dad that we should rent DVC points and stay in a 2-bedroom villa for this vacation. He was hesitant, and we bounced back and forth between getting a family suite at Art of Animation or two rooms at a moderate resort… but I found a good deal, and we went with DVC Rental!
I rented points from Bill at DVC Magic Point Rentals for $10/point (a great deal which really helped me convince Dad… we normally spend around $400-500/night to stay at a Deluxe resort, and for about the same price, we could stay in a 2-bedroom villa… no-brainer, right? :laugh:). I had inquired with a few other renters on MouseOwners.com, but they all said it wasn’t possible - it was too late to book (this was in early September), nothing was available. Not Bill - he was determined to get us a villa! At first, he booked us three separate reservations - three nights at SSR and one night at OKW with a request to move to SSR. Within a week the SSR request went through, and he was able to link our four separate reservations together into one. This guy knew what he was doing!
