AKV for Thanksgiving @ 7 Months?

I'm thinking of trying for a week at AKV the week of Thanksgiving at 7 months. A studio. We own at BLT and currently have a stay reserved for Nov 16-24 which I would cancel if I could get something do Thanksgiving. My motivation is having to take less days off work if we traveled for Thanksgiving. My DH and I both have Thursday and Friday off.

We bought at BLT mostly for the walkway to MK, which I love!!!! DS will be 18 months in Nov. normally I don't mind buses, but I've never had an 18 month old on a bus. We did take him at 7 weeks (POFQ) & 6 months (BLT), so he's been on buses and no major incidents.

Anyway, does anyone have experience getting AKV at 7 months for Thanksgiving? Advice? Suggestions? Jambo or Kidani?

Interested to see what you find out. We booked VWL for the 11/15-11/24. Wanted TG week for the same reasons you do but had trouble putting together the whole week so we moved it up. Since this is the time of year we prefer to go to WDW, I'm wondering what the options are for other resorts.

You should easily be able to get a savanna or standard view studio at AKV during Thanksgiving at 7 months out (in 2012, those were available at 7 months and even beyond). You are highly unlikely to get concierge or value.
Everything has to have a beginning and an end ... but it is not necessary to have a purpose in between.

Thank you! I would love to get savanna, I'm pretty sure we have adequate points for that since the current reservation is for BLT lake/tp. I'm too lazy to add up the points from the chart, ill have to find a online calculator.
