We have been planning another trip with our friends (and Disney buddies) for next fall. On the last trip we stayed at Kidani Village and we loved it there. Kidani is a beautiful resort and it is quiet. You don’t have a lot of people just passing through your resort, like you would at the Magic Kingdom or Epcot resorts. Everyone loved the animals and one day we are going to go back to stay in a Savannah view room. For the next trip we agreed to try a new resort, so we are going through David’s Vacation Club Rentals again to (hopefully) stay at the Beach Club.
The only downside to renting points is that you have to depend on a Disney Vacation Club (DVC) member selling their points to the point rental company. If no one joins with the number of points you need for a certain resort, then you have to wait until the 7 month window and chances are your chosen resort will be gone by then. The reason for this is that DVC members buy their points for a certain “home” resort and are able to book 11 months out at that resort, but have to wait until the 7 month mark to book at another resort. In other words, if you buy your points at Kidani then you can book Kidani 11 months in advance, but if you want to stay at Beach Club Villas you have to wait until you are 7 months out from your trip to book, because Beach Club is not your “home” resort.

That is the point we are at right now. We are just waiting for someone with Beach Club Villa points to sell their points to David’s. I will say that David’s has been phenomenal with communication. They were great with communicating the last time we used them, as well. So, we knew we were going to use them again. I have been emailing them each week for an update and they have been so quick to respond! It is great to work with a company that you know will address your questions in a very timely manner.
So, for now we wait. Our trip is still almost a year away, so we have time. I just love to have the reservation all set, because that means we are definitely going! For now though, we are looking at which restaurants we want to dine in while we are there.
I’ll probably be posting more about our upcoming trip as the planning starts to get more intense. There is always something you can start to plan and it’s fun planning all aspects of a Disney vacation. I’m sure I will find something to hold me over until the reservations are secured 😉
