If you are paying cash, I think you can book 6 months in advance.

Your other option is to rent points from a DVC owner. They can book further ahead - either 12 or 18 months - I believe.

BWV owners can book at 11 months; all other DVC owners can book at 7 months. Since this will be during F&W, better find a BWV owner!

Yes, it very well may be sold out at 6 months. It is often very hard for DVC owners to get what they want at 7 months. Have a plan B as other DVC resorts may well be available.
F & W is one of the most popular times for DVC in the Epcot Resorts area.

Thanks for the info! I'm not an owner. I just know that they can book further in advance of cash.

We are a cash ressie for DVC and have always booked 10 months out. I was told this by 3 CM's as well. Once Disney released the new rates for the new year, I kept checking sometimes 3 times a day to see if the DVC that we wanted was available. On 8/4/11 I checked in the morning, there was nothing, checked again around 12:30 PM and the 1 bdrm villa was available. I booked it immediately. I have done this for the past 3 years now. Happy planning.

Wow! Well, thats good to know! I usually try to book 12 months in advance so thinking i have to wait till the 6 month mark to HOPEFULLY book a room is completely stressing me out. I hope i have the same luck as you.

Rooms that can be booked by members for points are separate from rooms available for cash from CRO. Initially most rooms are in the member inventory. As members trade out for outside options (like cruises), rooms are moved to CRO. I would start looking at 10 months if you want to book through CRO.

You know that all two bedroom villas at BWV are lockoffs, right? That means a studio combined with a one bedroom. So the second bedroom will have one queen bed and one double sleeper sofa, plus a kitchenette. And the other studio you want to book might not be close and it will not connect.
