Moonlight Magic

We're staying at AKL on 22nd August and will hopefully be getting tickets for the Moonlight Magic event for that evening. We have friends who are staying at AKL for 2 weeks but are not DVC members. Is there any way that we could get them tickets do you think? I could book a 2 bed at SSR for us all but would be 'losing' 34 points to do so. Any suggestions?

Think you can take guests can't you, or could. Remember the whole point is not to give a benefit really but as a marketing exercise for DVD (Ken Potrock said that's why they do them at the Dec 17 meeting) so they WANT non members to attend.

How many are in your party and how many in theirs?

If you are a two and they are a two just put two random names on your studio?

It says member plus 3 which accounts for my wife, 2 kids and I. Our friends are a family of 4 so we'd be wanting 4 additional guests and the only way I can see this year is to have a reservation with us all on it.

I don't know the ins and outs of the new rules but it appears they tightened up on them to boost the number of actual DVC members getting a slot.

Edited at 02:58 PM. Reason: I can't count

If you have couldn't you 'move' one of you to the AKL booking, so you have a DVC member in each unit, then get the plus 3 on both?

Yes but under the same membership number so that won't work. I've got a few weeks to try to figure something out

Are they staying in their own booking or have you used your points to book their accommodation?
I know rules have changed and Im not sure how but when we went in 2017 we had our reservation and I used points to book my daughter and her boyfriend accommodation in the poly (we were in BLT). All 7 of us were fine. Im not sure if the rules have changed in that capacity x

There are no rooms available with a low enough points value to warrant booking them a room and 'wasting' the points. Might appeal to Guest Services at some point and see if there's anything available as I know our friends were considering DVC points. Appreciate the replies peeps! Cheers
