Hello, I've been toying with buying DVC and thought I was finally narrowing down some decisions - direct vs resale, how many points, which home resort, etc. But now after reading some of the other posts, I'm second-guessing everything. My problem is that I don't tend to plan my trips 11 months in advance. 7 months will even be a stretch. For me, 3-5 months in advance is more realistic. Does this mean I won't have a chance of getting the type of reservation I want? For most trips, I would probably want a studio or 1-BR, standard view, for travel in May or October-November. What is the liklihood of getting the type of accommodations I want? If I have to use twice as many points as I am budgeting for, then that kind of defeats the purpose. Your insight and experience is greatly appreciated.
