Excited to in full planning mode again after, like many, my perfectly planned trip last May didn’t happen. We had rented a 2 bedroom villa at Kidani and were doing a split stay at Art of Animation Nemo suite.
I’m very thankful for David’s for providing a travel credit and am looking to rebook a DVC rental for March 2021 for a portion of our trip. It’s nothing I didn’t know before, but oh how I wish the DVC occupancy would have something for a family of 6. Instead, rooms jump from accommodating 5 in many studios or 1 bedrooms to 8 or 9 people in a 2 bedroom, with a jump in cost accordingly. If only I weren’t blessed with surprise twins 7 years ago (just kidding - only not when it comes to Disney accommodations haha!).
I am currently holding reservations for a Ft Wilderness cabin and 2 rooms at POP for our entire 8 night stay which I will modify once I figure out the DVC rental portion. Our park plans will depend on where we are which days.
Would any DVC owner be willing to look up availability for 3 nights March 20-23:
one 2 bedroom (value or standard) for AK Kidani or BWV
TWO studios at AK or BWV
My credit is for $1876 and I’d like to stay as close to that as possible. Since our dates this year are during spring break, rates are higher than our cancelled May trip last year, but I got my DH to agree to 8 nights total instead of 7 so I want to stay close to our original DVC rental costs that we were credited. Two standard studios at BW seem to equal one value 2 bdrm at AKL.
Option 1: 3 nights 2 bedroom Villa Kidani value (if available)- focus on AK, resort, pool time, evening hopping to MK or EP if we want to, then move to 2 rooms POP for 5 nights.
Option 2: 3 nights renting TWO studios at BW (I know they won’t connect but hopefully could be nearby, 1 adult and 2 kids in each) focus on HS, Epcot, pool and BW area, then move to Ft Wilderness cabin for 5 nights (or POP potentially).
Thoughts on the two studios vs one 2 bedroom? I know being separated is not ideal but it’s only for 3 out of 8 nights and will just be for sleeping. I don’t see us using a full kitchen. Also, not considering off site.
Thanks in advance!!
