For those of you who take large groups, do you try and cover everyone’s resort costs with DVC points if possible? I’m trying to decide how to float a May 2021 trip to our family and how to do lodging. Obviously my family of 6 will stay on points which means we’ll need a two bedroom and can offer to have my parents stay with us since we will have capacity for 8. Both my husband and I have two siblings. On his side, one brother is single w/o kids and the other brother is married with 3 kids. On my side, one of my sisters is married (but currently separated from her husband) with no kids and my other sister is married with 2 kids.
I’d like to stay two weeks next trip (well, 12 nights split 6-6 between CC and BCV). My first thought is to invite my sisters and parents the first 6 nights and his brothers the second 6. That means we’d have 13 during my family’s 6 nights and 12 during his family’s 6 nights. Is it even worth looking into the 3 bedrooms for this trip? Our points wouldn’t cover it. Can you rent DVC points and successfully secure a 3 bedroom since there aren’t a ton of them? Or should we just extend the invitation to our siblings and let them know that they are responsible for booking their own lodging? I’m just wanting to have a solid idea so that when We pitch this to the family they have a clear understanding of what we’re offering (if anything) in terms of absorbing any of their trip costs for lodging. Thanks for the help y’all.
