How to Stay At a Disney World Resort for Cheap

Former Disney World Cast Member and author of “The Ultimate Disney World Savings Guides” shows Disney vacationers how to stay at a luxurious Disney World resort on a shoestring budget.

Orlando, FL (PRWEB) July 29, 2006 – Is it possible to stay at a luxurious Disney property for up to 70% less than the average visitor pays? It sounds appealing indeed, but is it really achievable?

Beth Haworth, former Disney cast member and author of “The Ultimate Disney World Savings Guide” says “YES!” It’s all made possible using the “Disney Points System”

“You’ll love this one. The bigger your dreams, the more you can save,” says Haworth.

“A savings of almost $2,000 was realized on my current reservation using this little-know strategy and it took less than an hour of my time.” Anyone can do the same thing when staying at one of Disney’s “Home Away From Home” resorts says Haworth. Disney’s Home Away From Home resorts include:

Beach Club Villas (BCV)
BoardWalk Villas (BWV)
Old Key West (OKW)
Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa (SSR)
Villas at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge (VWL)

So what exactly is Haworth’s Disney Resort Savings Secret? It’s Disney’s version of timesharing – the Disney Vacation Club.

“To become a Disney Vacation Club (DVC) member, points must be bought at a Home Away from Home Resort” says Haworth. So how does that benefit the average person planning a Disney Vacation?

Sometimes DVC owners are not able to use their points before they expire, and often choose to rent them to an outsider. This is your opportunity to save big! By renting an owner’s points, accommodations can be obtained at a deluxe Disney resort for about the same cost as value-priced accommodations. “It is not necessary to join the Disney Vacation Club to do this,” says Haworth. “These opportunities are open to absolutely everybody.”

There are simple steps to follow when renting an owner’s points. From the Beach Club Villas (BCV) to Saratogoa Springs Resort and Spa, vacationers can enjoy not just the benefits of luxurious lodging at value pricing, but also many of the other owner benefits as well… including:

* Extra morning and evening magic hours at selected parks
* Guaranteed admission to the park during peak times
* Access to Magic Your Way Dining Plans
* FREE Magical Express Shuttle service and;
* Special DVC member only Disney events.

In Haworth’s book “The Ultimate Disney World Savings Guide” she provides detailed information on:

* How to find DVC members wanting to rent their points
* Examples of trading posts with DVC owners
* The Key Points to remember when negotiating with DVC owners
* Understanding the value of Sunday through Thursday
* Understanding the value of the season
* How contracts and payments are handled
