RCI exchanging Disney RESORTS!!!!

Hey everyone,
I am new to this board, and I just wanted to let everyone know that rci has been slowly exchanging Disney resorts all day today and is still doing it now. They are going super fast, just looked and a couple of resorts for Dec and July were left. We booked and are so excited to take our 4 year old daughter for the first time as a birthday gift! Magical hunting!!

Welcome! I booked at OKW through RCI for 11/10-17. I was so excited to find that resort available, I scooped it up. It's a 2 br too! It's my first exchange with RCI. I am a DVC member, but ALWAYS live in the future with my points..... Same as my Worldmark timeshare..... Gotta love vacations.

When are you going? She's going to love it!

Hey Diana! We booked into the same resort, we have never been lucky enough to book into Disney resorts through RCI but I obsessively have been searching the past week or so. We are going Nov 16-23, so maybe we will be neighbors, we are also in a 2br!!! We definitely should say hello. My husband and I are avid Disney lovers, and even spent our honeymoon there..so taking our baby for the first time is major!!! Thanks so much for the warm welcome!

We actually decided to do Disney this past week, so I started looking at the Disney resorts only about 4 or 5 days ago. We got extremely lucky, for whatever reason all of these resorts were released. So, technically I booked 4 months out, but we do have an ongoing search which totally helps...BUT it only searches for weeks not points so I didn't get a hit until I found it myself. When points resorts are released there is no way for RCI to hold it for you, so you have to constantly and I mean CONSTANTLY check. If you are a lucky one and a "red week" reservation becomes available then they can contact you, but you must have red weeks to bank. Sorry for all of the confusing info, what really helped me was to call RCI and have them answer all of my questions, I called them several times over the past few days for help. I would keep checking everyday now, multiple times a day since they are exchanging points stuff, and call them and have them set up an ongoing WDW search for any red weeks! One last thing, the booking out 7 months thing is confusing to me, but you have to know when you are able to book out so you know when to stay on top of it. Just call and ask any questions, RCI is very helpful.Good Luck and I hope you are able to book something soon!

thanks. my inlaws are intrawest members but can exchange into rci if the imbalance is lifted. I will start checking around 8 months out to see. we are hoping for BLT though which I know is hard to get.

Have fun trip planning!!!
