    I have a relative with RCI points they are not using so we are actually looking at staying off property this year. It will save us about $1000. since we would only be paying the $130 to transfer the days. NOT SURE I will be happy off property, but a $1000 is a $1000. Looking at going right around ThxGiving or the first week of Christmas. What do you guys think?

    I don't know what RCI points are?

    We have never stayed onsite ( for obvious reasons :yes:)

    I believe from what my guests who have stayed aver Christmas that the parks get very busy.

    I was there in November and it's pretty quiet althought Thanksgiving it may be a bit busier but not so busy as Christmas

    i said Christmas but meant to say first week of December. I'm not sold on the time of year since the park hours will be shorter.

    RCI points are a timeshare vacation club sort of thing. :yes: RCI being a different company than DVC of course.

    If you are going that time of year do not go the week of Thanksgiving as it is truly mobbed. The first week of December is slower, but not as much as you might think. Loads of DVC people go then... because it's slower! :lol:

    Second week in December might be a better choice, but either way, avoid T-Day.

    No. We've stayed off property and it's not so bad. Especially now with the chaos in the restaurants onsite, offsite makes it much easier to find a decent place to eat on the day you want to eat at that given restaurant!

    Don't really know the park hours. I'm one of those blithe spirited faeries that shows up when I want to and doesn't pay too much attention to practical matters. :sorry: :lol:

    Temps? Not too bad, if they hold generally true. However, this year it got cold and nasty early and long... :sigh:

    But first two weeks in December should be beautiful. Maybe not too much opportunity to swim, but that's a matter of personal preference, eh? I don't go near the water unless it's 95 degrees in the shade and the water temp is about 98 degrees! :D
