Here’s the deal: PGR (Preferred Guest Resorts) offers this vacation waaaay below retail value in to promote ownership at PGR and sponsoring partner resorts. Therefore, while on vacation in Orlando and Daytona, you and your spouse will be required to attend a 90 minute sales presentation on the benefits of acquiring vacation ownership and/or membership travel services during part of one morning or afternoon.

Have any of you done timeshare vacations to save money in the past?  I know my parents took us to several when I was a kid, that’s how we got our grill, our big cooler, and a few other odds & ends :)  But never a whole vacation!!


FREE Calypso Cay Resort Stay w/purchase of Disney World Ticket!

We’ve been discussing on our Facebook Wall today, whether or not Time2Save Readers think it worthwhile to sit through a 90-minute timeshare presentation in order to take a cheap vacation – and the response was overwhelmingly in favor of it!   I found this offer – for those of you who take timeshare trips – or might be considering it.

5 Night Orlando Resort Stay FREE w/purchase of (2) Disney Tickets

GO HERE to read more about this vacation offer, which includes:

  • (3) Nights at the Orlando Country Inn & Suites Cayman Resort (A Disney Good Neighbor Hotel)
  • (2) Nights at the Daytona Beach Resort
  • Amenities:
    - Free shuttle service to the theme park(s)
    - Breakfast
    - (4) heated pools, mini golf, water slides, poolside tiki bar
  • *Good for up to 4 Guests

The only “catch” that I can see here is that you agree to sit through a 90-minute timeshare presentation during the trip.(Heck, I just spent 90 minutes ogling the resort pictures!)  As a child, my parents went to a few timeshare presentations – to the tune of such prizes as a Foreman Grill, an Igloo Cooler, a weekend at a campsite, and $50 Traveling expenses.  It seemed too good to be true, but according to our readers – it’s not!  Provided you are willing to listen patiently and follow with a firm “No Thank You” – this might be an excellent way to take a frugal vacation to a very nice location.  GO HERE to get all the details – and read the fine print.

Because I find personal experience so helpful, here the comments we received on our Facebook Wall this afternoon – scroll down if you’re interested in reading them!
