There are two views at Kidani in a studio a standard view would be 41 points and a Savanna view which is 53 points (for all the nights in your reservation).

You could ask the owner to book you in a 1 bedroom at OKW (Old Key West) for Wednesday night (at 27 points) and rent the rest of the nights. I do not have any points to rent, but put out a request on the reservations wanted board. OKW does have availability in a 1 bdrm for Thurs and Friday night.

Availability ( 3 of 3 Nights Available )
Wed Aug 28 - 27
Thu Aug 29 - 27
Fri Aug 30 - 32

The DVC owner could borrow a point or two for the two nights in a 1 bdrm... but, maybe you don't want to push it. I don't know how well you know this person.

One last thing... Assuming the member has the standard view Studio.

If the DVC member is able to book you the 1 bdrm at OKW they CAN buy 13 points from Disney as a one time transaction at $15pp (I believe). You might be able to rent the last night from a member.

Good luck! Move quickly that room at OKW may not last long.

THANK YOU very much for taking time out of your day to answer my questions...especially since I am not even a member.

Good karma to you.

Glad I could help Ankur. Good luck! I hope it all works out for you. At least now you have some info and maybe you and your friend can book something that will work. Hopefully they won't mind the change.

BTW: OKW will use the least amount of points necessary for a 1 bdrm. Start with OKW and then move to SSR if that is not available.

Cheers!

We checked in yesterday and were told that no upgrades can be made unless we rent points and because I didn't want to bother my co-worker, we didn't go that route. My wife asked some additional questions around paying cash for an upgrade and the manager was VERY rude (maybe he was having a bad day). He was so rude that my wife questioned why we were being treated so poorly as all we were doing was asking a few questions around the options we had about a possible upgrade. The manager apologized for his attitude and felt so bad that he gave us an upgrade. I'm not happy with how the upgrade came to be but the room is amazing. Excited to be going to Magic Kingdom in a couple hours....

Question here is how he gave the upgrade? He may have charged the upgrade pts to your co-workers DVC account. Only your coworker can see if that happened. Lot of people got upgrade and later on found out resort charged the pts to DVC member account. Just Make sure that did not happened so that you and your coworker can stay in good term. Have a magical day.

Great question. I think I asked that question at least four times. They confirmed that my coworker was not impactedd

Glad to hear it all worked out for you Ankur. Have a great time and I hope the information I gave you help you in some way -- if nothing else you know a little more about DVC
