This week we’re diving into the archives to replay a show that has dropped off iTunes’ 100-episode list but still contains valuable information, especially for those looking to save big on their Walt Disney World or Disneyland honeymoon.
On today’s show, Chrysty Summers and I will show you how to save up to 50% on Disney hotel reservations for your honeymoon, planning session or anniversary trip.
Disney’s “best kept secret” isn’t the Disney Vacation Club, it’s the ability to rent points from club members to stay in Deluxe Disney resorts at a fraction of the rack rate. When a Disney Vacation Club member’s points are due to expire before he or she can use them, often the member will “rent” them out (i.e., use them to make a reservation for another person at a rate based on the number of points required).
Today we’ll explain how the process works and where to find members who can rent you the points you need. We’ll also look at the differences between Disney Vacation Club rooms and regular hotel rooms so you’ll know if point rental is right for you.
