    I am looking to rent points for a **** at *** after Easter 2010. To get that reservation would I need a reservation at the 11 month mark, or would I still be able to get this at the 7 month mark?

    TIA,
    Kim

    You had better book at the 11 month mark. At 7 months out you may get SSR or OKW but it is Easter so I would play it safe and book at the 11 month mark.

    If you have your heart set on staying at a certain resort and a certain size unit, I'd book in the 8 - 11 month range. If you're okay with taking a chance, we have had great luck at the 7 month mark (mostly reserve 1-BRs). I got AKV this year for spring break (Easter week - 4/10 - 4/17) at 6 1/2 months out. I will say, though, I think studios go fast.

    Last year, we (BIL/SIL and our family) booked at the end of October for late March. The only 2-BR units available were at SSR. I was pleased as punch, however, BIL/SIL are OKW die-hards! :goodvibes

    Good luck with renting, and hope you get what you want! :thumbsup2

    The original post was edited to remove resort specific info, posting generic questions is fine, but posts with too much info can be considered a "Reservation Wanted" post, which is only allowed on the Rent/Trade Board.

    Thanks.
