December Time: Results at 7 Months out (Updated for End of December, post #19)

Today was the 7 month mark for Dec 1 to 8, which we know is a very high demand time. So, for future reference, how hard was it actually:

It appears if you wanted BWV, BCV, BLT, or VWL, you were likely out of luck for all rooms as the on-line system shows at best only a day open here and there for anything. There was still 2BR savanna availability at AKV Kidani early morning but Dec 1 disappeared before 9. For Studios and 1BRs savanna or standard there were usually 4 or 5 of the days open at Kidani and usually less at Jambo but nothing open for entire week. GVs were mostly gone all nights and concierge and value were gone all nights. At OKW, you can still get a 2BR, not at the hospitality house area. However, GVs have most days were already filled, and studios and 1BRs have at least one day in the period gone. At SSR everything is still open except treehouses and GVs.

Here is the question to see if things changed during the morning so that something came open for a short period because others had canceled: did anyone get BWV, BCV, BLT or VWL by going on line or calling today for first week of December, at what time of day (eastern time) did you get it, and what did you get (type of room and dates)?

We just passed ROFR a couple of weeks ago on a resale contract but are unable to close until the middle of June due to the original owners renting 2011 points to someone and their vacation is not completed until mid-June. We where hoping to take our daughter in early Dec for a suprrise b-day trip now I am getting worried that we will not get anything since we will not be in the system until probalby around July 1st.

Never give up and create a waitlist. We had a value 2 bedroom booked at Jambo for this past first week of December and had to cancel it at the end of October after having it booked for MONTHS. I'm sure someone's waitlist dreams came true!!!

We got a VWL studio for 11/25 through 11/30 - randomly showed up at about 10pm EST one night. We'd previously had an AKV value studio booked, so it was a win-win for somebody.

Thanks for looking!

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.

We own at BWV and WL. I booked 2 nights at WL and 5 at BWV 11 months out. A while later I tried to change to 3 nights at WL with no luck. I did waitlist but it has not come through.

I hope I get it, but I will be happy either way. I am really glad I bought where I want to stay! Good luck all!

Dec 2 at OKW for a studio was not available at 8 online but then was(we booked) shortly after and now has not been. I was going in and out a few times and it all of a sudden became available. So happy. Now I see that more days that week in a studio at OKW are not available.

We are going 12/8-15. We just called Member Services this morning and 2BR LV at BLT was only available on 12/11, 12/12 and 12/14. Do you think we are better off wait listing the entire week or booking the three days and wait listing the others. Thanks!

If you are not a BLT owner and you are calling today, May 8, you cannot actually book those three open days because Dec 8 is not open. You can only waitlist for the entire week at this point.

Dec 15 to 22

It is now another week in Dec. The first week was terrible for 7 months out, the second week somewhat better. This week, however, looks like a true DVC off season with low DVC demand and good pickings at 7 months out (thus not all of December is high DVC demand time):

BLT: Standard view: studio gone except 20 and 21, 1BR open except for Dec 21, and, amazingly, 2BRs are open; all lake view rooms other than GVs open and even GV is closed out only on Dec 21; Theme park view: 2BR has only Dec 21 gone, 1BR has 16,17 and 21 gone, studio gone except for 18 and 20, GV gone except for 16 and 21.

BWV: All pool/garden views are open; Standard: 1BR open, 2BR has 15, 18 and 19 open, studio has 15, 18 and 19 open; boardwalk view: GVs gone, 1BR open, 2BR gone except Dec 20, studio the same.

BCV: all room sizes open

VWL: all room sizes open

AKV: Kidani: everything open including GVs; Jambo: all savanna and standard view rooms open; value 1BR is open, value studio and 2BRs gone, concierge gone, GV open except for Dec 15 and 17:

OKW: GVs are mostly gone (15, 17 and 19 open for those away from Hospitality House); everything else is open including HH rooms

SSR: everything open but the treehouses which are closed for Dec 15, 16 and 18
