I have recently started to consider purchasing DVC, so I thought I would try to book a rental. I contacted David's and started the process. I had heard that booking could be tough unless you book a ways out. Well it was right around 6 months until we wanted to vacation in WDW, so I thought I would give it a shot. Based on the answer I got, nothing was available for Nov 30th-Dec 7th. I asked specifically about Bay Lake and Boardwalk, and was told that I could do Saratoga, but not for the last two days, the 6th and 7th. I checked Disney's site and all of those rooms are available for cash during those days, so what gives? I'm trying to understand if buying DVC means I would need to book at my home property 11 months in advance every time, or is this just a fluke. Every crowd calender shows a pretty slow week except for the 30th. Are there usually openings at Bay Lake and Boardwalk at the 7 month window? Does DVC only work for those who can plan vacation far in advance, or am I missing something? Thank you for the help!
