If you buy into one of the other Wyndham resorts (as I mentioned, my home resort is Wyndham Smokey Mountains), you can reserve at another Wyndham resort at the 9 month mark. Right now, since WBC is so large, I think you'll be able to reserve at WBC most weeks at the 9 month mark. However, you may have problems during some weeks (Christmas, Easter, July 4th). I know there are some other Wyndham owners here who may give you more info.
Thank you so much for the information!

Thanks!
I left before 8 am. It took me 20 minutes to Universal! This was on Thursday, November 29, 2012. I also drove from Jambo House the next Sunday, and it also took about 20 minutes, but leaving a little later that time.

Its supply and demand, if one of the clearing houses has a lot of inventory to move it will be cheaper. Other times it may be cheaper to go with one of the commonly mentioned companies. When we booked we got quotes from all of them, the prices varied wildly, we went with eBay as it was cheaper, but other listings on eBay were more expensive.

I just mentioned availability because sometimes eBay is cheaper, sometimes not but there is always variability in price so it is worth seeking out as many quotes as possible. Sorry if this was not clear initially.

Hello,

What is a reasonable price for a four bedroom for each week in the summer time? Does anyone know someone that rents out timeshares on myresortnetwork.com? Also how far in advance should I book a four bedroom since there aren't alot?

Thanks!

In July I would guess that a 4br would be in the $250-$300/night range. A friend of mine got a 3br on Ebay for $1700 last May for a stay from July 1-8.

Book it as far ahead as possible.

We were in tower 5 14th floor and could watch most all of Illuminations. We could even seee the torches light. We also could see MK in the distance and had a view of DTD. We were in the 1/2 of the tower towards the main building.

We saw a scooter on the bus on our last trip. I seem to recall the woman saying she called ahead to reserve the time.

From what I remember, you need to contact the front desk or bell services so they can coordinate a pick up location and time. When we road one day there was some confusion going on with a visitor that had her going to a stop location but not being able to picked up and being stranded for the moment at least. They do provide the service but it seems to be a made clear scenerio and confirmation.
