So I mentioned on my main planning thread that I just got a WL reservation for our dates (May 11th-16th). Right now (if it’s gauche to post prices, please do tell me!) Undercover Tourist is quoting me about $4,200 total for the two rooms. (We need two rooms; this trip will not go nearly as smoothly if my dad and my kids have to share space morning, noon, and night.)
So far I’ve looked at DVC-Rental, David’s Vacation Club Rentals, and The DVC Rental Store, and all three are quoting me around $1450-1500 for a studio in BLT. If we got two studios, we’d save a considerable amount and be in a better location for us – I really like the idea of WL and want to stay there someday, but on this trip with the kids it makes more sense to prioritize MK access – the idea of being able to walk back from MK is really appealing. (Or do DHS one morning, return to the hotel by car – I’ll have a car – and walk to MK for the afternoon/evening.)
Is there any reason why this doesn’t work? I know nonrefundability is an issue, so I’d likely try DVC Rental Store first and opt for their “point protection” cancellation insurance. Also I know nobody’s yet actually told me I can get BLT studios, just that if I can get them that’s what I should expect to pay. But given that people seem to be willing to vouch for those three brokers, at least trying to get BLT seems like a good strategy. What am I not considering that I should be?
