Last minute trip, any chance to stay on site?

Talking with parents of young kids at a Christmas party who said they would love to just put the kids in the car and drive down to Disney and stay on site. Hearing how far ahead of time reservations have to be made, wonder if it's ever possible to just call Disney, say, We're on our way, where do you have availability, and then head on down. I'm assuming park tickets can be bought on site, and food can be purchased out of pocket. With so many resorts and at so many different levels, is it possible to stay on site without months of planning?

Also, if you wanted to stay at a Vacation Club property, not as a member, but maybe renting points, can that be done on short notice as well? A lot of these people are families with a bunch of kids, so they'd like the kitchen and larger facilities at the Vacation Club facilities.

I was wondering if this was possible because of my friend's experience after Thanksgiving, where she requested a move from Carribean Beach, and they put her up at the Contemporary! Obviously, there was an empty room at the Contemporary, which was quite surprising, since I thought you had to book that a year in advance. Are there last minute cancellations that leave usually hard to find rooms open if you're lucky?

Thanks for any input!
