I'm trying to clarify how far in the future I can borrow points. I have an April UY, so I'm currently in my 2012 UY. In June, I want to book a trip for May of 2013, which will be in my 2013 UY. When I book the trip, can I borrow points from my 2014 UY to cover the cost of the trip?

I think someone at MS once told me that the borrowing/banking rules are for the UY of the trip, not your current UY. Can someone confirm? Thanks!!

Correct. You can borrow 2014 UY points for a reservation that takes place during your 2013 UY.

Rule to follow: when determining whether you need to bank or borrow points and which year's points are the the "current" use year points for a trip, erase from your mind the date you call to reserve and focus only the dates you will be at WDW.

Thanks! Just wanted to confirm so I didn't have any surprises on booking day.
