Renting Points at Disney Vacation Club Resort
I do love your page. Thank you for telling everyone that Christmas is a magical time at Disney World!!!! I was wondering if you would suggest renting Disney Vacation Club members' points. I am considering it for a short stay in October and it looks like a very good deal. However, I don't want it to be one of those "too good to be true" type things. I know you don't like the Dining Plan but we also want one of those and our tickets. Can I still do the trip I like piecemealing it together like this?
Dad's risky business Answer
Renting points from Disney Vacation Club members can be risky business. (Just don't rent from anyone named Joel.) There is a bit of a trust factor if you are renting from someone you don't know. There is a whole company set up to deal with point rental, but he charges a lot more than the going rate for normal rentals from the forum that deals with that.
Is renting points at a Disney Vacation Club Resort too good to be true? Not really. You will save a boatload of money, but the trade off is finding someone to rent the points from who you trust, and getting a reservation where you want it.
Now, about the dining plan. You will be able to add the Disney Dining Plan as a "guest" of the member. Once you have the reservation number, you can call the resort and request the dining plan be added.
