How early can you book ADB using DVC points?
DH & I are looking at a 2013 ABD. Do we have to wait until the points for ABD2013 are released or can we book now for summer 2013. Also is there a point discount if you book early and what's early?
OOPS, I mean ABD!!!!!!LOL

ETA: So I went and checked, and I couldn't find any ABD's currently scheduled beyond April of 2013. So if you really mean summer of 2013, then those won't be out until, as I said above, July or August of 2012. There's nothing for you to book for summer of 2013 until then. Now, that can always change, but so far, that's how ABD has done it.
I don't know too much about DVC, but I don't recall anyone ever mentioning an Early booking discount on ABD's using points. I'm pretty sure it's always been a fixed number of points per trip. I'm sure if I'm wrong, someone will correct me!

We were able to book the vacation as soon as the points came out for the trip, which, coincidentally, was when they released the points for the trip. In theory, if the trip exists, you are able to book up to 24-months out (according the DVC rules) of the first day of the trip.
But as I said, as soon as the points come out, you can book.
