I can think of many reasons why a visitor to Walt Disney World would consider renting Disney Vacation Club points.
- Cost! You can rent points to stay at any of the deluxe vacation club resorts for a fraction of what it would cost to normally stay there.
- If considering purchasing a membership in DVC, you can go a few times, staying at different vacation club properties, to see if you will really be happy with the properties – sort of a “test before you buy” vacation.
- Accommodation size – DVC units are larger than your average resort accommodation (even the studios) and offer many of the comforts of home which save you money in the long run – partial or full kitchens where you can prepare your own breakfast before heading out to the parks; washer/dryer right in the unit; private bedroom; more than one bathroom – the sizes and accommodations vary greatly.
I recently stayed at two different DVC properties – Saratoga Springs Resort and Old Key West Resort. At Saratoga Springs my husband and I enjoyed a full kitchen with dishwasher and full refrigerator (all dishes, flatware, pots, pans included), laundry room, bedroom, living room, breakfast bar, dining area large walk-in closet, large Jacuzzi tub (toilet – shower/sink – tub/vanity – all separate rooms, as well as an outdoor patio off of the living room. At Old Key West I was travelling with friends (all girls) and we enjoyed a full kitchen, 2 bedrooms, large living room, laundry room, dining room, wet bar, 2 full bathrooms and a covered porch off of the living room and one of the bedrooms. Both resorts are beautiful and offer wonderful restaurants and amenities. I will never again reserve multiple rooms when traveling with my adult children and their families when for basically the same cost as 2 rooms at a moderate WDW resort I can reserve a 2 bedroom unit (that sleeps 8) at Old Key West through DVC point rental and stay at a deluxe resort, prepare breakfast in room (which is a huge saving when traveling with so many), prepare any other meals we want, late night snacks – have room for us all to be together comfortably with sitting on beds in one room! I have included at the end of this post several pictures of both of these resorts.
Your next question will most likely be – Where do I go to rent Disney Vacation Club points? Well, I have done tons of research on the subject and talked to many people that rent DVC points. There are several sites you can use to reserve your trip this way. However, hands down – with no hesitation – the most highly recommended site is David’s Vacation Club Rentals.
I will also say, I love this site – it is without a doubt easy to navigate – everything about cost, reserving, how the system works and what it includes is explained clearly and accurately. I have never heard one complaint from anyone that has used David’s to book the rental of DVC points. You can find clear explanations of the cost per point, how many points each DVC resort requires, how to make your payments, etc. The site also tells you where you can find discounted park passes and order groceries delivered to your unit. It is truly an all inclusive site for anyone interested in renting Disney Vacation Club points. You can also sign up to receive “last minute” deals that are even less expensive than the usual rental cost through the site.
If you are planning a WDW trip and are thinking about renting DVC points – David’s Vacation Club Rentals is definitely the site to use! Click the picture to visit the site!
