    Default Recent trend in room discounts?

    Does anyone know what the most recent years' trends have been in room discounts? I looked it up on the Info Central page, and I think 2009 was the most recent year listed. Trying to decide if we should rent DVC pts. to stay @ BCV or wait it out to take a chance on a room discount in January. Looks like those discounts aren't announced until late October... if they come out.

    Iger has gone on record at a few shareholder meetings saying he is reducing the discounting guests have come to expect.

    DVC rooms are nice... Well worth the typical rental costs ($11 a point or so)...

    I agree with the blue furry one. A lot of times you can rent the points and end up paying what you would pay for a value or slightly more to get a studio at one of these DVC which are a much higher quality

    I haven't noticed much of a reduction of discount availability. There seems to always be something out there.

    I would take my chances on a discount, if I were you. Renting DVC points is a good idea if you really want to stay at a villa, but otherwise, it will probably cost more than a room with a discount of some sort.

    Also, it might be hard for you to get a rental at BCV. It's a very popular resort.

    Disney tends to usually offer steep discounts at Saratoga Springs and Old Key West, if you are open to those. The Disney discounts are around 35% off rack rate on those when they are offered, and that would make it a better deal than renting points, plus you'd get daily housekeeping, etc.

    The discounts offered this year were not what the used to be. While SSR and OKW had 30% off, many of the other villas were 5-10%. Prior years you could get 30-40% so it's definitely been going down.

    Doing some quick math, BCV in January would need at least a 35% discount to break even with renting from our sponsor TTS.
