Today is our official 7-month mark… which means we can book DVC rentals at any hotel. I think I’ve got a plan, and have talked to our “source”. So, she’s going to work on booking part of our stay. However, we’re doing some things that I haven’t done before and I need some confidence that I’m doing this right.
We’re planning to do a 3-hotel split stay. I know it’s not ideal to be moving around so much, but it’ll be quite a bit cheaper, and reduce travel time for us. The first two are DVC rentals, and I know they “bridge” well with fastpasses, but not ADRs. Right?
However, here’s where I need help. The last part of the stay, we want to book at a moderate for 3 nights. No discounts are out yet. I’ve been watching MVT and the Disney website. So, should I book something room-only direct through Disney, now? If discounts do come out, I can apply them to my existing reservation? Should I wait and see if something better shows up?
Also, how does the split stay work going from DVC to non-DVC? Will everything link up well, or will I have to call and have someone do something?
