HELP THE STUPID NEWBIE!!! 210 days or 7 months?????

DUMB QUESTION I am sure, BUT...


For those "not home resort" reservations is it 210 days from check-in or 7 months (as in the same date as check-in only 7 months earlier)????


Sorry, I have the dumb when it comes to my new DVC stuff......

It's 7 months. Not exactly 210 days. For example, today is August 12, 2009, you can book non-home resort for check in on March 12, 2010.

Just sign on to the member website and click on 'My Vacation Points'. There it will give you your booking windows. Today it shows:

As has already been posted, it's 7/11 months prior to check in. However, there will be times when there is no corresponding date. For example, let's say you want to book your home resort for a stay beginning on Jan 30, 2011. Eleven months prior would be Feb 30, 2010 but that date doesn't exist. According to Caskbill, you should be able to book that stay on Feb 28, 2010 but the reservation software MS uses may not let you do so and they may tell you to call back on Mar 1st.

This site seems to work for figuring out the date 90 days (etc.) before a given date:

But I haven't tested it with the February problem.

Seems most of your ??s have been answered. I just wanted to add to not feel dumb. It has taken most if not all members some time to catch on to all the ways that DVC works. I am still learning even since becoming a member in 02. But you are at the right place to ask questions.

Welcome Home Soon! Hope your get your papers finalized and you have many happy Disney Dreams in years to come. Just remember...everyone started out as a newbie....so we all had/have questions at times. The Disboards is the best place to ask for answers.

And after a while you can make DVC mistakes like I did. I called at 3 months for 90 + 10 reservations, only to discover that it was only 92 days!
