Thanks for any advice!
I had no difficulty at 7 months getting a 2BR for April 8 - 13 this year.

Depends on when Easter falls in 2014. We are hoping to go the first week in April 2013. I didn't get in right at 7 months (about a week late) and we've been waitlisted (3/31-4/5) for a 1BR for a while now. Easter Sunday in 2013 is March 31st so the whole resort is booked solid on pts that next week. I could get a cash room but they are very $$ for that week.

Does anyone have any idea how many rooms they rent on points vs. on cash? I am wondering if they truly take waitlist during peak times or just try to sell any cancelled point rentals for cash reservations?

Thanks for any advice!
We only bought 50 points so that we could go every three years so the difference in MF's aren't that noticable.

Take a look at some of the resales that are available...they are scarce! Obviously the higher MF's are not driving people to sell off in droves. We actually ended up buying direct ($80/pt) since the difference on a 50-point contract was only going to amount to about $750. In the long run, it was worth it since it has been over a year and I still haven't seen a 50 pt contract with a Feb UY on the market.

I definitely think that we will probably end up going direct if we buy at HHI. I have been looking at the resales and haven't seen many (if any) for 100 points or less. I guess most people bought HHI when they had stricter buy in limits?

Plus, the prices don't seem to be THAT much lower, like they are for most of the WDW properties. I'm still waiting until after we visit.... but I just know we will love it

How likely to get two 3BR grand villas for next Christmas at 7 months out? Looking to do 4 nights (Sun-Thur). Thanks!

If I am not mistaken, the majority of the rooms at HHI are 2BR so you may have better luck with those than the studios.

That's all...

I just almost added 40 more HH points direct from Dinsey. I was sooooo close. My DH might blow a gasket though. If I did add them, I'd have enough at 11 months out to book a 3BR or two 2BRs for my family and some inlaws (10 of us). Would need 3 more points for the two 2BRs...do they still let you rent up to 15 points per year? If not, I'd have to buy 41 points.

Yes you can still get 15 extra pts per year.
