We’ve been looking into renting DVC points from a broker for the first time on our next trip to WDW (next September). As I’ve worked it out, it looks like a Polynesian studio would be quite a bit less; however, if WDW offers free DDP next September, then the difference is small (although still favorable to renting DVC). Which leads me to two questions…
According to some brief research (including @brklinck’s excellent blog post), it appears that there is very little difference in the experience. I know we will be considered “guests” of the DVC owner and I know there is no refund. Are there any other intangibles that we should consider? Either good or bad?
Secondly, I tend to believe that, despite the higher attendance figures this past September, WDW will still offer the free DDP for Sep 2016 for Poly. Any dissenting opinions? Any reliable rumors at this early stage?
