We are planning a Sept 2018 trip and are considering renting DVC points. We are planning on staying 5 nights. When I priced standard view room at GF with 5 day park hopper tickets the cost Disney website were approx. $4500 for two adults and one child. When I price seperately through DVC Store a studio villa is around $1500 and park hopper tickets around $1400; for a total of approx $3000. Am I missing something? Can renting points really save me $1500?
If so, what are the cons of renting points? I know I don't get daily housekeeping included but I can add it for additional charge. Does anyone know that charge?
Lastly, if Disney does free dining during this time will we be eligible if renting points?
