I also noticed that after online booking became available, there is alot less availability.

I guess it's easier for people to hop on and just book with a click than to previously have to get on the phone to call if they just want to hold a room in case they go.
It has made renting easier too, which I feel has increased.

Yes, I agree. Much easier to field renter questions re availability with internet searching compared to phoning MS each & every time.

Believe it...I checked those dates several months ago (I am already at BCV but wanted to add a night - that night ended up being at Art of Animation) and Saratoga Springs was the only resort with availability in a studio. This is a big weekend - there is a federal holiday, the Food and Wine Festival is still on, it's the end of Jersey Week, some of the Christmas decorations will be up and the Wine and Dine Half Marathon has been moved to this weekend.

We are hoping for a miracle too! We waitlisted last weekend for OKW and SSR. We got one night (Nov 8) but waiting on the 9-12. I've been checking 2-3 times a day. I know we really need a lot of pixie dust, but we're holding on to hope.

It's also the weekend of the Children's Miracle Network Golf Tourney at Disney. We are on a waitlist for those dates too. We are going to look into making reservations off site...

The Association is entitled to receive as breakage income the rental proceeds not to exceed 2.5% of the Condominium Operating and Capital Reserves Budgets in each calendar year.
It looks like 2011's return rate for BWV is 3.2%. Very unusual of Disney to be so generous, but it still could well have been even more---they are not obligated to return even as much as they did.

I tried to book the week of Thanksgiving in July and nothing was available, not a single day, so I waitlisted just to see and my waitlist came though 10 -14 days ago! I really didn't expect it would~

Maybe you should waitlist, you never know!

I"ve read more than a few times on these boards that people book the popular periods of their home resorts just in case at the 11 month mark automatically, even if they have no plans to come and then cancel between 30-60 days!
