This is how a lot of members use their points. We always book rooms at the 11-month point using our home resort(s) to ensure we'll have someplace to stay for the trip. This allows us to arrange for vacation time from work and start looking for airline tickets. When we get to the 7-month point, we'll think about whether we want to try for a different resort. When we were new DVC members, we did an awful lot of banking and borrowing, because we didn't like to do spit stays. We'd always try to have enough points at one resort to do the full trip. Now, we've pretty much changed our way of thinking, and like doing at least two different resorts for our two-week summer trips. That's made using our home resort priorities a little easier.

One thing you have to be careful with is the fact that different resorts and different views require different points. If, for example, you own at BLT and book a one-bedroom at the 11 month point, then want to change to say OKW at the 7-month point, you're going to have a bunch of points left over after you swap out the reservations. You need to be mindful of whether you'll be able to use or bank those leftover points. How many points from which use years did you use for the original reservation? How many points will the new reservation use? How does that number of points match up with any banking and borrowing you've already done? Where does the 7-month booking window fall in relation to your current use year's banking deadline?

I've owned for 12 years and have never not been able to get what I wanted at 7 months. I've stayed at all the WDW DVC resorts except SSR. 7 months at SSR should not be a problem, except a THV.

Even the THV shouldn't be a problem now that the number of points for them has gone up (for those booking in 2013).
