    Excited to be there for the first time in May! Fingers crossed for a theme park view.

    Try to call the hotel front desk 1 week before and ask for specific room numbers. They will never guarantee but the last few times we got 6500 (2 bedroom) & 6502 (1 bedroom Thanksgiving week & we checked in at 6 pm)......

    Last year I put a request in with DVC Rental Store for our trip last year for early Sept and got it fulfilled in 3 days. This year I put a request in with them again for early November this time...it's been a month and a half so far with no luck. I'm gonna give it another week or so and then go with my Plan B...

    So you're not the only one not having any luck with DVC rentals right now...

    We rented points for a 1 bedroom in August and I lined up a member who was willing to rent quite a while before the 11 month date. He was extremely helpful and was online first thing on the earliest day he could book and managed to get what we wanted.

    Aladora,

    Would your "hookup" be interested in renting again for someone looking to do a November trip? Long shot but thought I'd ask :)

    I know someone who has a couple guaranteed reservations in November they might be willing to rent. Send me a PM and I will give you details.

    I'll be putting points up for rent with a broker this week for VGC, on a contract I just purchased. So you may not be lost on that front either. So looks like something should work out.

    Would you mind PM'ing me with which broker you are using? So if it's the one I have a request with I can ask them to keep an eye out?

    What I always did too for staying at DLR was book a cash room backup at PP and cancel (since I could really late) if I didn't get a room at VGC. Just a thought if you didn't have a backup. It is a bit further than some of the off-site hotels but I did value the EMH at DCA that it afforded me and runs a similar price as renting VGC.

    RedM94 try this number: 714-635-2300

    I think that was the direct line to the hotel...
