As far as using points for DLR hotels or WDW hotels first depends on any resale restrictions on your points. If they can be used for those options then yes, you can use holding points to book those options but they are still held to the 60 day from check-in restriction.
Thank you!

When looking at the graphic, I did not assign numbers to the months based on the order in which they appear in the calendar (2 does not mean February and 12 does not mean December). Instead, I looked at my personal vacation habits and then placed them on the graphic. For example, the most likely four month period for us to vacation is August to November (so that would be the green section) followed by December to March (the yellow section). April to July is least likely for us (so that would be in the red). So based on that (and this graphic), our most optimal use year is August, because it is at the beginning of the 8 month period where we are most likely to vacation. Furthermore, the red months fall after the banking window has closed, so by structuring it this way I would stand the least chance of having to cancel a vacation and lose the points.

Again, there is validity to both sides of the argument as to how important this is, but I just thought I'd offer my interpretation of what the poster was trying to do.
Thanks for the clarification, and in general to all on the thread for all the info.

so i have (once again) been reading up and thinking about dvc
if you travel to disney in july 99% of the time...
the best use yr would be like may/june???
that way if you had to cancel you still have 1 yr to use the points and/or bank them

for july trips, a june UY is ideal...

a june UY will be risky if you travel in march-april-may.

Great chart. So for the past 10 years we have traveled in the june to dec months. they were evenly spread out so i'm thinking that june or april as i have been told would be the best UY for me? i have my time of in the summer and holiday's cause i'm in the school system and as my kids get older i can see us not pulling them out of school for a full week vacation. maybe a day here or there so i will cont to most likely travel in the summer and fall winter months.

so april or june UY makes sense then? any opinions are soooo welcome!

Question about dues: I thought dues were due in the first month of your use year, but now I'm hearing everyone gets billed in December. Is that true?

Ex: I'm looking at a contract with a Dec use year. 2012 dues are already paid, so I THOUGHT that meant I wouldn't owe dues until Dec 2013. But I'm being told I'd have to prepay the dues at closing now. If that's the case, wouldn't that in essence pay me up until Dec 2014? Or does Disney make you prepay your dues for the upcoming year?

Once you are in the system you have the option of paying your dues in January for the entire upcoming year or paying them month by month through automatic debit from your bank account.

Dues are paid by calendar year NOT use year. So everyone's dues are billed in December and due in January, no matter what the use year is. Some members pay in full in January. Some pay by automatic monthly debit.

If you closed on a December UY contract now, with 2012 dues paid, you would still owe dues in January 2013, like all other members.

Thanks, guys. Can't believe I've been researching DVC this many years and never knew that about the calendar year billing! Appreciate it.

Great info. Is there a thread to the transfer options. I understand I can only transfer my points once a year. We have family that may need extras points so we are going to transfer to her and then she would owe us in the future.

Thanks, this is great info for those of that are looking to buy into DVC.

We are having a little bit of a struggle trying to figure out which UY would be best for us. Mostly because we will usually be traveling at 2 different times of the year.
We will be traveling last week of July / first week of August every year.
Then we will also be doing a trip anywhere between December - March .
So 2 trips a year at opposite ends of the calendar. We will NEVER be able to travel April-July , and September - November due to business reasons.

So ...........we think we have decided on a December UY to base our DVC purchase/s . There are quite a lot of December UY contracts available (I would say its one of the most common) so easy to find, and add on keeping the same UY later. It would work out great for our trips that fall December- March every year. Also if we ever needed to cancel (very doubtful) or Summer trip which always starts in July, we still have the 4 month time frame to bank our points if we need to.

How does this plan look to you UY experts ?
We were looking at April-June UY as well , but I think December would suit us better, except that the points will come into our account so late into the year.

Thanks for the help !

Your business reasons may change over the next 30 to 50 years.

Pick the UY that covers the majority of your vacations.

It doesn't really matter when your UY is for point loading. What matters is that you have points in your account for your reservation dates.
