    If so how many TPUs did you pay and for what size and what season? How often do they refurb the units there? Thx in advance for any intel!

    It has been a long time since anyone reported trading into Animal Kingdom. The most likely trade these days is a one bedroom at Saratoga Springs.

    We traded into a 1 bedroom in August 2016 for a March 2017 check in. After that, I know there were some last minute units in January 2018 but I’m not sure if anyone has reported any since.

    Except for Saratoga and an OKW twice, I have seen nothing else since 2016. From my experience, I believe that Disney is somehow able to keep anything else and rent them.

    With our RCI points we exchanged into Animal Kingdom Kidani Village in a one bedroom savanna view unit in April of 2017. And I saw these same units available in late August of last year too. Haven't been looking since then so can't say anything more recent.

    RCI would kill to get more inventory. I have to imagine that the robust rental market cuts into Members using RCI.

    We rented a few hundred points through David’s. Easy, and they wired a good chunk of money the next day. Well PayPal, but paypaled sounds odd.
