    We just made an accepted offer on our first DVC contract, don't think the sellers have signed yet though. My questions is, assuming we can close by end of May, what's the likelihood of availability of a 1bd from Nov 17 -24? My brother is getting married then and we plan to give him the points for his honeymoon. They already have a disney trip planned but would be able to cancel for a full refund. They would prefer BWV but I think they would be happy anywhere. Think we will have any options?

    Once you get in the sustem, ( after closing ),you will most likely be at the 7 month window, and you can go to any of the resorts for reservations. You should not have any problems.

    Thanks! I know there is no way to know until I can actually log on and book it, but I hate to offer it to him for his honeymoon only to have to say "sorry, can't do". But sounds encouraging!

    You may have trouble finding a room over thanksgiving week. Your best bet will be SSR or OKW

    If you close in May, you are going to have a hard time finding anything for Thanksgiving when you would be less than six months out. Most members book that week 11 months out. And you will already be past the seven month mark. You might get SSR or OKW, but I doubt if you are going to get seven nights at one resort in one villa. You might be able to mix and match a night here and there, but nothing like a honeymoon. Why not offer them the week for a one year anniversary present instead?

    This is more what i expected with kids being out of school etc. we just know we likely wont be able to use the pts ourselves and they plan to go anyway. If it doesnt work out, thats ok. I wouldnt want to move resorts on my honeymoon! Thanks for the input
