Based on this information, I think you would be looking at a 2BR villa for your number of people.Originally Posted by Shellyamc, post: 257424
September, October, and early November are some of the cheapest times to go, point wise, so that works well.
I would highly recommend visiting the resorts if possible before you buy. I was set on buying Boardwalk until we went to visit Old Key West and fell in love. Remember, all resorts are available on the resale market so you can get whatever you want if you don't mind the resale restrictions.
So, for 2 weeks in October in a 2BR you are looking at anywhere from 464 points at Old Key West up to 760 points in a Magic Kingdom view room at Bay Lake Tower. That is certainly a lot of points.
A few options are, just do a week and cut those points in half. Just go every other year and cut those points in half. Rent two studios instead of a two bedroom and knock it down to 312 points for Old Key West and 584 for BLT.
The best advice I would give is to look into resale. You can get points at 50% or less of what Disney is selling them for if you like Old Key West, Saratoga Springs, or even Boardwalk.
