Thanks to everyone for their input. I'm def going to book at SSR at 11 month window. And try for BLT at 7 months. Maybe we will get lucky and the Disney magic will make it come thru. We are now thinking about goi g Nov10-18 as to better our odds. Any opinions on this week versus the previous week? Again, thanks for your feedback.

Might be a better plan if you can do those dates. Jersey week is ALWAYS the week of election day. NJEA teacher's convention is the Thurs & Fri on the week of Election Day. So school is closed. Many districts close for election day if the school is a polling place, or they often have an inservice day on election day or the wednesday. Bottom line, most NJ school kids only have 2 days of school that week, so many go on vacation that week. So in 2013 Jersey week is from Nov 4 to Nov 8 plus the weekends before and after.

The other problem you may run into even though they did adjust the inventory at BLT I thought I was told by MS that there was either 4 or 6 2 bedroom std rooms total! I remember the number seemed ridiculously low. You may want to check into that also.

We own at BLT but I ended up making a late booking for my daughter in a studio and was amazed to find I could get 3 nights in a SV at 3 months notice, when I had checked the previous week there had only been LV available. I would also book at 11months and then swap, I think you stand a good chance of AK and I cant believe any child would be disappointed to wake up and see animals outside their room!

I'm a BLT owner, and have often had a similar thought regarding BCV.

While a bit more financially risky, has anyone done the following:

- At the 11 month window, *rent* at BLT for the time you want, thereby increasing the chance you get what you want.

- Put the SSR points up for rent in the year to offset the rental cost. Or, worst case, bank them and have a bigger place next year.

Even if you lose a few dollars per point, it may be worth a few hundred to get where you want to be when you want to be there. Maybe not if finances are really tight, but if location were very important it could get you where you need to be.
