Renting Disney Vacation Club points from David’s Vacation Club Rentals

Have you heard of any problems renting Disney Vacation Club points from David’s Vacation Club Rentals? I see they advertise on your site. I am scared to reserve thru someone who is located in Canada. We have a large party and do not want to show up at the resort and find out we have been scammed.

Renting Disney Vacation Club points is one of the most nerve wracking things I have ever done. Earlier this year I rented points when I stayed at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge Villas I’ve always wanted to give it a try.


There are a couple of ways to rent points. The first is to find a DVC owner and rent directly from them (which is what I did). The second is to use a broker like David’s Vacation Club Rentals or one of the other sites that rent points.


The nerve wracking thing about renting points is exactly what you said. It’s always possible that you arrive at your resort and don’t have a reservation. That’s why I’ve never rented points before.


As to your specific question about David and his company. It’s my opinion that David is as reliable as you will find. In fact I’m going to start advertising David’s site directly (the ads you’ve seen before come from a ad company).


I have talked to David directly and believe he’s a good businessman offering a good service. Is it possible that you will end up at Disney without a reservation? Yes, but in my opinion, the chances of getting ripped off are less by using David than they are by renting directly from an unknown person.

Dad’s Bottom Line


Shannon, renting DVC points is a good way to save a lot of money on a Disney Hotel reservation. I’ve only heard of a few people getting ripped off through the years. I doesn’t happen often, but it does happen. I do think that by using David’s Vacation Club Rentals, you lessen your chances of getting ripped off.

by: Anonymous1 Has anyone recently rented from DVC? I see the most recent is 2015. Has any of the policy’s changed? Any other feedback? Thanks!

Nov 18, 2015 Be careful
by: Anonymous My wife and I and two of our friends and their families used them for a trip about three years ago. When we tried to book our magical express two weeks before our trip we learned that our reservations had been cancelled because the people whose points Dave was using for us had not paid their annual dues and thus were losing their points.

While this was not Daves fault, it left us in a very sticky situation with not a lot of options. They stated that this had never happened to them before and their response was essentially sorry about that here’s your money back we cant help. After some back and forth between Dave and another member of the party we did end up getting them to cover half of the difference it took for us to scramble and stay at the Caribbean beach resort.

We are now vacation club members ourselves so we don’t have to worry about that anymore, but just be careful and know that if you get burnt, you’ll have to work hard to get good customer service from them.

Jun 29, 2015 David Point Rental
by: David I rented a total of 1000 points thru Davids point rental service. Overall it was a good experience. really they are just the middle man, finding you a customer or customers for renting of your points. Bottom line i rented all my points and i feel that the people who rented my points had a good time. At least i didn’t hear if they had a bad time!

Apr 07, 2015 Own and rent from Dave
by: Anne B I own 50 points and plan to go over other year but if I want to add on or go dying an off year we have used Daves and a private owner this works well for us because we don’t need to go every year

Feb 03, 2013 Awesome Experience
by: Anonymous As a current Disney Vacation Club member we decided to add a day to our last vacation. We did not have enough of our own points to do this so we purchased a one night stay from David’s Vacation Club. We were also skeptical but we spoke on the phone and email and it was awesome and we have no complaints. In fact we are hoping to add a day on our spring trip. DVC members since 2004. Gail and Ed

Oct 13, 2011 Great way to save
by: Jim Graham Renting DVC points is a great way to save money. We have rented 5 times and from my calculations have saved about $6500!

We have used the DVC Rental Store for all of our rentals. The owner is great to work with and knows everything about Disney. They are $1.00/point cheaper which in itself will save you an additional $200-$400 over using David.
