How far in advance can we book DL Hotel with points? Also, does anyone have the 2009 point chart, it looks like dvcmember.com is down right now. DH and I are thinking about changing our AKV October booking to a stay at DL Hotel. Yay!

I believe you can book 11 months out as long as the point values have been set. A couple of years ago, we had to wait to book a NYE ressie that went into Jan until about Aug or so because member services didn't have the points for the new year, yet.

You should be fine to book your Oct 2009 reservation. The DL hotel for OCT 2009 (value season) is 22/33 (STD view) 25/39 (premium view) and 39/64 (concierge). The first number is for S-Th nights and the second number is for F/S nights.

Provided the points charts for DL are out, you can book up to 11-months in advance. However, the points charts for DL are typically released in the Fall of each year (sometimes early Fall, sometimes late).

Given that you wish to travel in October this year, you can book your DL stay any time.

So if I plan on going in March 2009 then I can call 11 months before?

You can call right now for a Mar 2009 reservation. Did you mean Mar 2010?

You could call and ask, but I doubt they will have the points charts until this fall (I didn't see the DL resorts for the Disney Collection for 2010 at this time). They don't typically set the point prices for DL resorts this early. MS receiving the points info would be your limiting factor in making a March 2010 reservation.
