The Secret to Staying at Disney Deluxe Resorts for a LOT Less Money

You might have more Walt Disney World Resort hotel choices available than you think!

While the Disney World parks have now reopened, some places around the Resort still aren’t ready to welcome back guests — and that includes many of the Resort hotels across property. But you might actually have more choices than you realize.

Here’s the best way to book a Disney World hotel room that you’re not even thinking of!

While a number of the hotels are still currently closed, the Disney Vacation Club properties at Disney World reopened back on June 22. Unfamiliar with Disney Vacation Club, or DVC as it’s commonly shortened? It’s a vacation ownership program, or timeshare, that allows members to purchase points to be used for reservations. But did you know that you don’t have to be a member to stay at one of the DVC Resorts in Disney World?

That’s right, guests are able to rent points from other DVC Members, which can then be used for their vacation. And the best part: you don’t have to figure out the process on your own! There are third-party Disney Vacation Club rental companies available to help you complete the process.

  1. Beware, although the DVC sections are open and available, do your homework and determine what, if any, dining options are available at the resort or nearby. Currently there is only Sanaa available at AKL which isn’t really a good dining option for everyone. Uber eats is a viable option, but not having a convenient quick serve available really put a damper on our recent AKL stay. Just be aware that there’s more to a resort experience than the room.

  2. I’d just like to point out that you don’t need to use DVC points to stay in DVC rooms. We have a 2021 WDW visit where we had booked club level at the Polynesian, which Disney later cancelled since the main rooms at the resort would not be re-opening in time. I wanted to stay at the Poly no matter what, so I simply spoke to reservations and they switched us to a DVC room (and refunded the difference from our original selection). This is a good option if the resort you are interested in does not have regular rooms available. We are looking forward to our stay in January. With only 3 longhouses open, the Poly should be quiet.

  3. We are DVC members, and because many of us are not seeing the value we are accustomed to, due to COVID-19, I reckon it was a wise decision to rent out points. We didn’t do it, instead, booking a Bungalow at the Poly, thinking it would be nice to see the fireworks from that vantage point. Alas, fireworks aren’t happening, so like the poor folks that lost parts of their resorts to the NBA, we are ALSO experiencing a decrease in the value of our vacation dollar. So, yeah, in a way, I wish we had rented out our points as well.

  4. We’ve rented from David’s several times and it’s always gone smoothly. I never thought we’d be able to afford a one bedroom villa, but renting points made it possible.
