Hello all! Been a long time since I have posted. We own at SSR and we have always stayed there, booking at the 11 month window. We've never had an issue doing this. This time, we would like to go right after New Years 2010 (a first for us, we've always gone in October). We would also like to attempt to stay at Bay Lake Towers, which would be the first time we haven't stayed at our home resort and we would need to book in the 7 month window. I need some experienced DVCers to let me know how possible they think that would be. I was looking at the January 2009 unavailable dates and it looks like January is a busy time, but I have no idea *when* those reservations were made--- 11 month window? 7 month window? I get the sense that BLT will also be a popular resort to book at, but I was hoping with it being so new to the scene that they haven't sold out the inventory yet, therefore there won't be as many people who can book in the 11 month window. Any thoughts on whether or not it's worth the bother? My husband and I are the proud parents of a very large, very young crew and if it is going to be a crisis of impossible machinations then truthfully we can just stay at SSR and save ourselves some aggravation. If there's a realistic shot that I could call and make a day-by-day reservation and have a reasonable chance of that working, then I'll give it whirl. With so many littles (are youngest two will be two) it would be fantastic to be on the monorail, but again, I'm not going to die if it's too hard. I'm thinking we would have a problem booking at SSR at the 7 month window if we needed to do that instead. Any wisdom for me? And I'm sorry in advance if a variation of this question gets asked nine million times a day. I appreciate those of you with the wisdom to answer this question nine million times a day having the patience to share with me!
