It's our home resort but as a fairly new DVC Member we have only stayed at the Villas once before and that was only for one night (stayed at the Lodge previously)

We are so excited at the prospect of seeing all of the holiday decorations and I know this is a popular time to stay at the Villas, but what are my chances of securing 11 nights in a studio if I book right on my 11 month window?

I wasn't sure if I would end up only getting a small selection of my chosen dates (3rd - 14th December) as we didn't really want to switch resorts

Thanks everyone for this wonderful thread

It's going to be a long countdown so this thread will help me get through
It's never too early to plan and welcome! Just to echo several others, you shouldn't have any issue getting what you want 11 months out. That's one of the advantages of owning at VWL.

Happy Turkey Day to all!

Thanks for all the help and advice everyone

I didn't even realise that I needed to book 7 nights and then call back for the other 4 - I have a lot to learn but that's why I am here!

It's just a regular rainy work day in London but I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving Folks!!!!!

Nicole
I appreciate your sentiments towards our service men and women. They allow us this day to be with our families, give thanks to God for his many blessings, and stand free as a nation.

And while we are on the subject of giving thanks, I want to thank you folks for allowing me into your lives. It is something I look forward to every AM and PM, catching up on what is going on, seeing the excitement of upcoming trips, sharing in your personal lives, triumphs and tragedy. And though I may not respond to every post, I am following along. So my prayer for all of you is God grant you peace, good health and prosperity for the coming days.

Wishing all Groupies a very Happy Thanksgiving Day!

As you gather around your table with family and friends, may you find joy, peace and contentment on this Thanksgiving Day.

Special thoughts and prayers to you Eliza. Know that we are here to offer a listening ear or a shoulder to lean on. You're never more than a key-stroke away from those that care.

Happy Thanksgiving to all the groupies (new and old) and good luck to those that will be out on Black Friday!
I love the Mickey Pants Red description! Congrats on your new car.

We really are looking forward to time on the Fantasy. I know my way around the Wonder and the Magic and I'm looking forward to exploring the Fantasy. We are on the Eastern, stopping in San Juan. That was the reason we picked the Eastern, to see San Juan.

Is there a December meet this year?

Maybe as a separate post this will work better-
is there a groupie meeting in December this year? I enjoyed meeting everyone last year so I'm hoping to get a chance to see you again this year if dates coordinate.

Since you can't book more than 7 nights immediately at 11 months you do need to call back but it doesn't have to be every day. If you wait for 4 days after booking the first 7 then you can add on all 4 at once. It's easy!

Hi Inkmahm! There's one meet at TOTWL on Dec 8th - after 8PM with the plan to watch the fireworks at 10PM. Then a second meet at FW to do the sleighride on Dec 12th. I think the plan is for the 9:30 sleigh ride.

It is on the 12th and it is at 9:30 but it's the Hayride! No reservations necessary, easy-peasy.

Lol - I pictured the hay ride but typed sleigh ride!

And thanks for the heads up on the Homecoming! I love that movie. Had to have the Patriots game on 'til the end but switched over and John Boy and Grandpa are about to go get the Christmas tree so I didn't miss too much.

Did everyone see about all the new perks for AP holders? Free Parasailing photo package, a couple extra laps on the Exotic Driving experience and 50% off golf!
