It will be just the two of us, I think she'll like that after spending Xmas at WDW with the kids.
My wife is soooo happy Her best birthday present ever! Buying plane tickets tomorrow!

Hi guys,
Just wanted to know if you'd finalized your plans!

Meant to mentioned this is planned. 7 month window coming up in a few weeks. This will be our 2nd overall stay as members having stayed at the Villas at the Grand Californian in May. We have stayed at VWL before renting points. So glad we took the DVC plunge.

Now that I'm reading about the shortage of Studios in June we may move up to last week of May but I'm worried about Memorial Day. Does it get unbearably crowded that weekend? Also, we would like to take a day trip to either Charleston or Savanna. Which is more kid friendly with 4 & 8 year old boys? Thanks.

With kids, I'd choose Savannah: you'll save 3h of driving vs Charleston and there's plenty to do:

Thanks for the tip. We just started planning and I didn't realize Charleston was that far away. As an architect Savannah is totally my cup of tea and the Safari looks pretty fun to let the kids experience some of that while still having fun.

We are getting ready for the seven month window to open in November to try to book for June 2013.

We were able to book May 18th through May 25th in a studio last week. It is a week earlier than we usually go but we are so excited that we got the reservation!

Does anyone know how bad Memorial Day weekend is at the resort & beach? Is it best to avoid if possible? Shoulder to shoulder on the beach is not my idea of a good time. Thanks.

We are thinking about our 1st trip the first week in August.

2 questions

How easy is it to book if this is not your home resort?

How crowded does it get in August?
