Christmas week 2012, do i wait until 60 days out to trey and book it?
I just checked the Wyndham owners' site, and you are already too late. There are no units of any size for a full week checking in on 12/21-22-23/12. You will need to rent from someone who has booked the week speculatively hoping to rent it later. And, you will probably not be getting a great deal on it---that's a huge week, demand-wise.

If you mean New Years Eve, there are a still a handful of 1BR Pres and 2BR Dlx units left checking in on 12/30/12, but nothing for the 28th or 29th. I would not wait to book those.

I am at my 60 mark e-mailed Ken price at 4 am, when do you think I will get a quote.

VS gave me a quote and it was the same as before my 60 day window and way more expensive than other quotes that I have got already. So far the lowest is 1075. for 10 days...

I really want to book so I can just move on to other things. I guess I am just rambling...but only other planners will get my obsessive nature. ugggh, not a good waiter, it took forever to get to my 60 day mark.

I feel confident you'll get a quote tomorrow night!!

You will probably get one even sooner than that! I just thought if you can mentally assume tomorrow night,then you'll be excited when it comes sooner.

I wanted 12/24-12/31 -- no go? How do I check the availability?

Might be safe to assume wifi will be available entire Resort (Buildings) soon ... but a phone call to Resort would be best.
Did this today, and according to the person at the front desk, all rooms have wifi as of 3 days ago. I think I'll wait for confirmation here though. So as people stay on property, can you post if you had wifi in your room, and what room/building.

Thanks

I just reread his email and it said it will have a quote within 48 hours, so I am just being anxious.

I was surprised by VS though the quote I got was the same as the quote I got 2 months ago. I have already recieved a quote 600 less than VS, I really thought they would have the best price from what I had read but I was wrong

I am itching to book...I think your right by this time tommorow night I think I will have booked. So I guess I just got to keep to keep swimming...just keep swimmingjust keep swimming

Then if the parks are crazy, we can just hang out in the condo (as opposed to a tiny room at POP or POR). We have stayed on property many many times, but I really like the idea of Bonnett Creek. I need some tips - help a newbie out!

Christmas week.. Book ASAP. The reason it's usually cheaper to rent at 60 days is from the resort offering discounts to owners in order to try and fill the week. With high demand times like Christmas week, the resort will end up booked long before any discounts are offered.

I just checked the owners site and it looks like there is 1 2bdrm deluxr unit let for those dates as of right now. As mentioned above, I'd book ASAP if you are really wanting to go those dates.

To check availability, you have to own within the Wyndham system in order to be able to access their internal reservations system. There is not a way for non-owners to check availabilty directly.

Even then, all I can see is the number of open reservations at the resort. I cannot see how many of the existng reservations are behind held by people looking to rent out the reservation.

I have a question about check in....we are driving and will possibly not get there until 10pm or later on our check in day. If it happens to be later, how long will they hold our room for us? If we arrive after midnight, will we have issues?

It's a time share resort, so it's not like a hotel where after a certain time they'll turn around and resell your reservation. You should have no problem if you arrive and check in after midnight.

Will be making our second trip to WBC soon. It has been 2 years since we stayed there last, will I notice many changes? Or is it the same as I remember?

Biggest difference you should notice: All the construction is done. The Hotel, which was the final building to be completed, opened last October.

The hotel is a nice addition to the resort complex since it adds a few new onsite restaurants.

Um.... The bus stop at the main lobby building has moved, and is now located at a dedicated shelter/stop by Tower 1. this is in addition to the stop by Tower 6.

I don't remember if Tower 6 was completed 2 years ago or not.... but it's now open as well, complete with the pirate pool (and slide)

I'm pretty sure that unless you have a Presidential Unit, you are most likely going to be out of luck with that request. I think all the floors above 9 are exclusively presidential units in Tower 6.
