DEC Availability: Dec 22 Update for Dec 22-29

We are now at another week, 7 months out from Dec 22 to 29, and this one includes high demand time around Christmas but not NYE yet for those reserving 7 months out. Pickings are rather slim at park resorts except for some 1BR openings all week, but AKV, OKW and SSR have lots of things open. Thus, it is definitely not difficult to get something 7 months out but you usually have to be lookng at AKV, OKW or SSR to have little problem. This week is somewhat easier than the first week of Dec and thus the first week of Dec rather than Christmas week might be the highest DVC demand week of the year:

BLT: Everything has some days gone during this week. Standard: studio Dec 24 through 28 open, 1BR Dec 24, 25 open, 2BR 22, 24, 25 open; lake view: GV 24, 25, 27 open, studio 24, 25, 28 open, 1BR 24-28, 2BR 24, 25 , 28 open; Theme Park: GV 24, 28 open, studio 24, 26, open, 1BR 24, 28 open, 2BR 23 open.

BWV: almost same issue as BLT. Garden/Pool: studio 22. 23, 28 open, 1BR open all week, 2BR 22, 23, 28 open; boardwalk: GVs gone, studio and 2BR have only Dec 24 open, 1BR is open all days except Dec 26; standard: studio 24, 25 open, 1BR 23 through 26, 28 open, 2BR only 24 and 25 open.

BCV: 1BR open all week, 2BR 22 though 24, 26 open; studio only Dec 24 open

VWL: 1BR open all week, 2R 23 through 26, 28 open, studio 23 through 26, 29 open

AKV: Jambo: value and concierge gone except 1BR value is open every night except Dec 23, GV open Dec 22 through 25, savanna: studio all open except Dec 25, 1BR open all week, 2BR only Dec 25 gone; standard: studio Dec 25 and 27 gone; 1BR open, 2BR only Dec 25, 27 gone
Kidani: everything open except savanna GV is closed out Dec 22 and standard GV 26 through 28


OKW: everything around Hospitality House is mostly closed out except 1BR is open; GVs elsewhere have 22, 25, and 28 open, studios, 1BRs, 2BRs elsewhere are all open.

SSR: everything open except treehouses which have only Dec 28 open.

Last Update: December 29 to Jan 5

Last update mainly to see if you can still get Dec. 31 anywhere and nights around it. The answer is yes if you want SSR or OKW and thus it is not impossible:

SSR: still wide open for Dec 29 to through Jan 4 except for treehouses which are gone.

OKW: GVs gone, most around HH gone, but elsewhere studios, 1BRs and 2BRs are open Dec 29 through Jan 4.

AKV: 1BR Savanna at Kidani open Dec 29 through Jan 4. 1BR Stand at Jambo open Dec 30 through Jan 4. GV Sav view at Kidani open Dec 30 and 31. Otherwise NYE is out but still some openings for rooms (other than concierge or value) after Dec 31.

BLT: 1BR lake view is open every night except Dec 31. Anything else has only some spotty openings at most the entire week.

BWV: Openings for pool/garden views after Jan 1; otherwise mostly closed out except a night here and there.

BCV: openings only after Dec 31.

VWL: 1BR is open all nights including Dec 31 but except for Dec 30. Otherwise openings after Dec 31.

We are considering a December 2013 stay. I will definitely use my 11 month advantage for BLT, and save my VWL dreams for another time of year - maybe summer instead.
And this is exactly what we did! We just booked a lakeview 1BR for 12/19-12/23

The 7 month window doesn't open until May, so probably no updates until then.

This thread is very informative! Thanks to the OP for taking the time to compile all of the information!

I was worried that I may have jumped the gun when I rented BLT points right at the 11 month mark for my upcoming 12/14-12/21 trip. I struggled with the choice to wait for the 7 month mark and use David's (they didn't have anyone with BLT points at the 11 month mark).

Based on this info, I am glad I went with an individual rental. The view I wanted was gone but at least I did get all consecutive days! Doesn't seem likely that it would have happened if I had waited!

I own at BWV/BLT. But, of course, I didn't make up my mind as to whether or not I would go in early Dec this coming year. So, by the time I made up my mind, last week, I was unable to get anything at either BWV or BLT (in a studio) for Dec 2-7!!! And now, I'm waitlisted!! I could get a total of three days at BWV...Mon, Wed, Fri..but nothing for Tues or Thurs. So, rather than book those three days, I just waitlisted the entire stay.
Hopefully, in May, I'll be able to book something, somewhere other than SSR, if my waitlist doesn't come through!!

Hope your waitlist works!

IMO, vacations for the first half of December 2013 are going to be harder to get than they were in 2012. There is one less week!

In 2012, Thanksgiving was 11/22 and for 2013, it will be 11/28. That means the people (like us) who prefer to go the week after Thanksgiving are "forced" into the first week of December. So 3 weeks worth of people trying to get into the 2 first weeks of December. I think the first week of December (12/1 - 12/7) will be particularly difficult this year.

Good luck!

Wow, I really lucked out then. As a BLT owner, we had slight flexibility in our travel dates, but only by 1 day. At 11 months out, the first day I could not get a SV. All gone, so the next morning I was able to get it for all 3 nights. But after I got it, availability disappeared for SV. It didn't take too long before ALL the categories were booked for that first week. My father decided he wanted to go with us, and was looking at getting a room at the contemporary for the 3 nights.....At $500 a night! I told him I could not get a DVC room for him as it was all booked up, but last weekend (just before the website locked me out with password error) 2 of the three nights were available........in a SV! I grabbed them pretty quick. Even IF he was to pay the rental price for the points cost.... It would still be less than half the price of a room at the Contemporary.....and that was a south garden wing room! Makes me love my DVC even more.

I waitlisted the third night for him, but at this rate we're happy to get just the 2. If it comes through that would be phenomenal.

Yeah, that was my thought as well. Hopefully something will open up!!!
