I am close to jumping in and becoming a new DVC member and purchasing points at the new AKL. We're thinking that 250 points would be a good start. My question is.....if at some point in time I need extra points to get me the accomodations I need, and I've already tapped into my future years points allotments, can I purchase additional points from Disney (or someone else) for just that one trip? I realize I can add on additional points from Disney for all future years...but I'm interested in knowing the answer about a one time event. Also, if you can purchase points, what is the going rate? Thanks in advance for your replies.

If you find you need additional points for just one trip, you can:

pay cash for the DVC room (and maybe get a 25% discount if available)
Pay for a 1-time transfer of points from another DVC member
Rent points from another DVC memberIf you want to permanently add-on points, you can buy as few as 25 points (if you pay cash) or 50 points (if you finance) direct from DVC. It's a really easy process (I've done it 10 times already!)
