Availability for 1st week in Dec. doesn't look good?

Hello! I was just curious, how do you know that availability for the 1st week in December doesn't look good? Did a WDW customer service representative tell you this? Or did you try to book a room for that 1st week and had trouble booking it?

Thanks

LOL JetBlue has us going from Dulles (Washington DC) to Boston, then to MCO, but if we went out of Reagan it would be a straight through flight.


We booked today, Nov. 28th until Dec. 7th, staying at POR!

I booked a couple of months ago because my first choice (CR garden wing std view) was sold out already. Our friends who are traveling the same week (first week in Dec) made their reservations a few days ago thru a AAA travel agent after first talking to a Disney customer service rep. They weren't finding any availability at the GF or CR (not sure exactly what room categories they were looking for--theme park view, I think) and ended up booking Poly. Then I was playing around on the Disney website today and came up with nothing available at CSR except a junior suite and only suites at AoA, even if I changed the dates around a bit (we plan to arrive 11/30, which is the Sat after Thanksgiving, so I tried Sun and Mon as arrival dates and got nothing).

We traveled the same week in 2011. I don't think I made my reservations until May that year and I don't remember anything being unavailable at that time (with the exception of a 1 bdrm at BLT on points, which was hardly surprising). This seems very different from that last experience.

The BC is full the first week of December, too. It looks like a busy week already, unfortunately.

Just play around with the system checking different resort availabilities for the week and you can see what's booked up already.

I like the idea of being close to the action
I had to buy another piece of luggage today and shoes and a floppy hat
The camping trip got a little hairy

What is the week in December that people say to avoid because of a competition or something? Also do you avoid it cause of the cost or because it's busy?

Thanks

I think that people might be referring to Pop Warner Week. It will be held from Dec 7 - 14th this year, I believe. That event tends to fill up the value resorts, usually All Star Sports and some people want to avoid the crowds at their resorts. They also stay at a moderate resort, too, often CBR.

We are booked for Nov. 30-Dec 7 at POR. I was hoping this would be a slower week and hoping for a discount.
