I have a reservation for a grand villa January 26- Feb 1. I wanted to add another day, Friday, Jan 25 to my reservation at the seven month window.

No luck. I think that anyone who plans on staying in an OKW grand villa for a week or more better plan on having enough OKW points for the complete transaction.

In the past I have had no trouble adding on, for this week in January, a few weekend days in a GV using my Vero points at the seven month window.

Maybe this has broader implications? Buy where you want to stay!

That doesn't bode well for me then - we are SSR owners who were hoping to a GV at OKW in April next year, for 5 nights :sad2:

I'm an SSR owner who was trying for an OKW GV for Jan. 08. No Luck.

We bought an OKW add-on just for the 11 month advantage in booking a GV.

AHHH, I'm so glad I have an OKW home! We love the GVs, but even at the 11 month booking window, we always book them day by day. It's the only OKW ressie I book that way.

Same here. Unless it's an unpopular time, or a complete fluke, generally I would think a GV at 7 months would be next to impossible.

We have a OKW GV ressie for this September 16-22 on SSR points. I must be lucky because I did not call day by day. I know people will say this is the slow season, but it is one of our favorite times to do Disney.

How many do the OKW GV sleep?

12 counting the pullout in the living room.

Do you have a better chance of getting a 2 bedroom/sleeps 8 at OKW?

Yes, a much better chance, especially if you call right at 7 months. You can always waitlist for a GV if one is not available but book a 2 bedroom as a back-up.
