Booked a seven night stay at Aulani for June. When I tried to book it first thing in the morning two days ago at the 7 month window, the days I wanted were not available. I kept getting shut out on the computer with a "not available" message. I looked again later that day, and I was able to book six consecutive days in 2BR OV we wanted. Member Services helped me add the seventh day the next morning.

Keep checking the member reservation site. Hope everyone gets the reservations they want!

I was also afraid of a studio not being available in June so I found an Aulani owner and rented points from her last month. Hope others are able to book at the 7 month window!

I hope some of the good luck you all have been having will rub off. So far I only have one of the 7 nights that I need. I should have walked a reservation....but I did not think all of the dates would be gone.

I tried to reserve 7 days today for a 2 BR any view and got nothing! I am now waitlisted for the entire week. Maybe I should waitlist one day at a time.

We have pieced together our stay. We only booked our air in September for the end of January. A few weeks later and we are now only missing one night from our 17 night stay. Its definitely not in one studio category at this point (I think we are up to 6 ATM), but the first goal is to have a bed to sleep in each night. After that I will try to change our studio an individual day at a time to minimize our switching. Over the past few weeks I've seen various days pop up so I'm feeling good about consolidating categories.

How far to walk a reservation

Hi
When would you start to walk a reservation? Would you start a week ahead of your arrival or sooner?

This morning I checked exactly at 8 am (of course I had checked for an hour before that just in case...) and I was able to book 7 nights in a studio poolside room. I really wanted a standard to save on points, but those seemed to all be booked. Wishing pixie dust for the rest of you all

Wow! I am happy for those that have gotten what they wanted and sending pixie dust for those that are still waiting and hoping for waitlists to open up.

May I please ask you if July or August is even in more demand than June?
We were seriously considering going Summer of 2014. Perhaps we should rethink going over a different break other than summer.
Can you please let me know.

Thank you.
