The first week of December is one of the most popular DVC times of the year, which explains why BLT is full (few rooms dedicated to cash reservations and few owners trading points out).

I agree that the rest of the resort is likely full due to a conference.

In their new book, The Easy Guide to Your First WDW Visit, authors Josh (easywdw) and Dave recommend, among other dates,

"... the two weeks beginning the Sunday after Thanksgiving"

as recommended weeks to visit WDW.

Based on that, I'd feel very good about going the first week of December this year.

October would be great too. They recommend "the last two weeks of October".

Keep checking for room availability. It is always changing

Interesting that they recommend the last two weeks of October since wine and food festival is still happening and resorts on the monorails seem to stay full. DH and I love BLT since we just have to find the monorail and then our room after "wine sampling" at epcot !

All advice is appreciated!
We stayed in a garden wing/ garden view at the CR in July 2008 and LOVED the room. We had a king and they'd just renovated the rooms. We were in the back, and could walk out our room and see the water.

They also have limited corner garden view rooms which are larger. They don't have many, and they book up quickly.


I have had several CM's tell me from reservations that the CR books up a year to more in advance!

1. find monorail
2. find room


Re. the recommendation, I think it's that, for people who want to enjoy F&W and/or MNSSHP, they recommend late in October vs. earlier.
