      Hi,We want to rent 10,000+ points for 2015 in hopes of reserving 2 weeks at MOC for a June 2015 visit.  (View doesn't matter that much to us.)  I've seen a few ads offering legacy points.  Will that work for our situation, and do I need to know what their "home resort" is/was?  On a related note, is there any advantage to trading Disney points for Marriott points or should we keep things simple and just rent both?  I'm somewhat risk adverse, so I really want to trade points and not reservations.(We have been DVC owners for more than 10 years but are relatively new Marriott trust point owners, so I'm still learning about Marriott.)Thanks!

      There are a few weeks out there that are offered to Trust point users before they're available to Legacy point owners. GregT had been watching the MOC inventory and could help you out more.Once a week owner converts the week to Legacy points there is no more home resort. So it doesn't matter what Legacy points you rent.Cash is always easiest to complete a transaction with.Good luck getting your week.

      Hello and welcome to vacationpointexchange.com and Marriott Vacation Club!Like slum808 said, the main advantage to trust points is that some inventory will be made available to their holders before it is made available to legacy point holders.  A property like MOC has a lot of demand, so what I would be looking for if I were you (to give you a better chance of getting what you're looking for) is for an owner with premier or premier plus status, who have a reservation window of 13 months for 1+ nights with no point premium to make the reservation for you and then change the name on the reservation to yours.  If you're a premier or premier plus MVC owner who just needs extra points, then disregard what I said in the previous paragraph.I don't know much about trading DVC for MVC, but I think you will be better off if you rent whatever points you will not be using for either one of the memberships.  There is a section in this forum which provides more information on trading MVC for DVC.MVC is great, as it provides more properties than DVC and other benefits like using your points for airfare and most cruise lines.  If you have any other questions, feel free to contact me anytime.  I can also help out with the 2015 points you need, I will send you a PM.  Good luck in getting your week and enjoy your MVC membership!
