Aloha , I have a UY question I am unable to find an answer to. It's probably really obvious of an answer and I'll probably look stupid asking it but need to set it straight in my head as we are looking at several contracts at the moment. I understand the following about Use Year: 1. It is the month that new points are added to your account each year. 2. You then have an 11 month window (starting the following month) to book your reservations at your home resort ex. UY Jan, can start booking Feb 1. 3. You then have a 7 month window (starting the following month) to book your reservations at all other DVC resorts. ex. UY Jan can start booking April 1 (?) 4. Starting at your UY, you then have 8 months to bank any unused points for that year. 5. Common belief here on the DIS is that it's best to get a UY that starts at the beginning of your travel months in case of cancellation so you still have the opportunity to bank in the 8 months window if need be. Here's my stupid question. If our travel time usually falls (occasionally Aug)Sept/Oct/Jan (poss Feb) common belief would be to have an AUG UY. BUT if we have an AUG UY, our points would be deposit AUG 1 and we could start booking Sept 1. BUT it would be nearly impossible to get reservations for THAT Sept/Oct. We would only really have a chance for the following Sept/Oct? Wouldn't it be better to have a JUNE UY? That way we would have at least three months to book for September and still within the 8 months booking window for Jan? Hope that made sense. Any corrections in my thinking would be greatly appreciated.
