I'm sorry to post this under WDW but there didn't seem to be a better location. I've been trying to do a last minute couples only fall trip to WDW but I cannot seem to make the hotel price work. I have literally 2 PIN codes in my possession plus have been stalking Priceline and HotWire but the hotels must already be jam packed so I can't find anything less than $235 for CSR or the bargain price of $1,500 for AKL. So I refocused my efforts on a non-WDW trip. ::sniff::
I was looking at Hilton Head as that seemed like a nice way to get SOME Disney involved. The rack rate there for a 2 bedroom villa was $348 per night which I didn't think was too bad. So then I thought I might try renting points, but I'm looking at both David's and DVC Rental Store and the rental price is in the $700-800 range PER NIGHT. I literally don't understand. Is it because they charge the same point value as WDW rentals? But the amount of points needed is actually MORE than a 2 bedroom at BLT, Wilderness Lodge or BW/BC. I just really, really don't understand. Has anyone rented DVC points at Hilton Head before?
