The best way to use SkyAuction.com is to buy their resort certificates. Type resort certificates into the Keyword. If nothing shows up, keep checking every few days, it WILL eventually show up.
Right now they are listed at $269 per week. That is a little higher than we have ever paid and it makes me wonder if it is because it is hitting Spring Break season. We typically pay $249 per a one week voucher. We have paid as little as $149 but I haven't seen that price before or since! There may also be a $20 service fee on top of their $249, but if you get more than one voucher, there is only a one time $20 fee.
Before you buy, you can check ResortCerts.com to see what sorts of places you can get. The inventory changes almost daily, so check back often if you don't see what you like.
The $249 includes all taxes and fees unless otherwise noted.
You can only use them weekend to weekend (I see Fri-Fri, Sat-Sat, and Sun-Sun, just check the dates), BUT, the unit is yours for the whole week, so if you just need it 4 nights, you can go just for 4 nights, just know you don't get a discount if you don't stay the entire time AND make sure and call if you are arriving late. They aren't supposed to give your unit away, but I always try to make sure.
Please also note this is NOT a good way to travel during holidays or peak season. It is really an OFF-SEASON way to travel as these are pretty much left over vacant rooms from RCI that they are trying to fill for a minimal cost to cover basic fees. And there is NO timeshare presentation to attend. These are just unfilled rooms. They may offer to have you attend a timeshare presentation for additional bonues while you are there, but we simply give a firm no and they have left us alone.
We have gone to Disney this way for 7 solid years now, often more than once per year, so I am very familiar with it if you have any questions!
Just know, I am your FRUGAL source for Disney if you need it. We can go every year because I go cheaply! We know many don't like doing Disney this way and that is fine, we just know we need to or we can't go very often. We like to go often!
