    that STINKS! thanks for the heads up- our car was fine and our trip was really enjoyable 3 years ago, but your experience proves anything can happen. i can't believe they didn't pay for your rental and reimburse you fully, what lousy customer service!

    I've been to Disney many, many times. My husband used to work there in the early 90's. We've stayed at the Grand Floridian resort several times, but have also stayed at the Yacht club. By far, the Grand Floridian is the nicest, at least in our eyes. :) Plus, we honeymooned there during the month of November while they were putting up the Christmas decorations. The GF had a monsterous sized gingerbread house and a Christmas tree that was at least 5 stories tall!

    We're headed to Disney at the end of January and I'm trying to figure out the best way to get a deal on a room onsite. From what I've read, the Beach Club villas sound great because we can fix our own food and have a shortcut into Epcot. Any other current suggestions would be great - it's been about four years since we were there. Does anyone have a copy of the Unofficial Guide that they don't need anymore?

    At that time of year you should be able to find a good deal. Post holiday but pre spring break season.

    We rented points in September 2006 from a Disney Vacation Club (DVC) owner in order to get a Beach Club Villa. We were able to get a one bedroom villa for $2,000 for one week. I think it would have been at least twice that through Disney. The only difference between renting from a DVC owner vs. going through Disney was that we did not have daily housekeeping service. It only came once, midweek, but that was fine with us. We had our own washer/dryer so could take care of our towels right in the room.

    [SIZE=+0]I posted what I wanted and a couple of people got in touch with me. It was a very easy process (it was her first time as well so we were both figuring it out) and went very smoothly. [/SIZE]

    They were/are running a buy 4 nights, get 3 free deal for 2009. No biggie on the tix, but a really good deal on the rooms. Check out the "codes and rates" board on disboards to find your best deal. There's also mousesavers.com (or .net?) to look for codes.

    We just got back from Disney and loved our stay at the Polynesian. We have kids who are 1,3&5 so being on the monorail and convenience to the MK was ideal. Once they get older, though, I forsee us staying in one of the Epcot resorts for the back entrance.

    Have a great vacation! We didn't want to leave and already I want to plan our next vacation, sooner than our intended 2.5 years from now :)
