Do you know what I love most about a Walt Disney World vacation? Everything! I just love being there. Unfortunately, it can be costly venture, especially nowadays. I have been going to Walt Disney World every year since 2002, but this year is different.
My first trip there was for a business conference. I remember actually being upset that the conference was going to be held at The Contemporary Resort rather than at the usual hotel in Fort Lauderdale! Once I checked in and started exploring the resort, I started to feel better about the place and that night as I sat in my hotel room watching TV, I heard this music coming from Bay Lake – the Electrical Water Pageant was performing for just for me as I stepped out onto my balcony (yes, I had an excellent view). On that first full day there I went to EPCOT with a co-worker who was there with me for the conference. I just knew then that my boyfriend (now husband) would absolutely love it at the World! He chose to stay home rather than join me for the trip as he said,
I am not a DVC (Disney Vacation Club) owner. I have always wanted to stay in a DVC property but have found the Disney prices for the DVC resorts to be unattainable. I had frequently priced out staying at various DVC properties but could not justify the costs.
In recent months, I had read that some people rent points in order to afford staying in these rooms. I am always looking for ways to save money, yet have the Disney vacation of my dreams. As a result, I found a board that had members of DVC that were renting out their points. I had never frequented the boards prior to this, so do not feel that you must be a “board regular” to rent using the boards. I emailed the owner of the requested number of points needed after doing some research on the accommodations I wanted to request: I found online “calculators” that helped me determine the number of points I would need for the days of travel for the defined accommodations.
