Is it as hard to get reservations as the first 2 weeks of December? Is it necessary to call at exactly 11 months out? I know that one year I called at 10 months/2 weeks out for early December (I forgot at exactly 11 months), and there were only 2 resorts with availability. Yikes! Is the Food and Wine time that full? We've (obviously) never been during F&W time before, but we might go during that time next year. But we probably won't know our plans for sure 11 months out, maybe not til 8-9 months out. What would our chances be then? We're thinking of going in early November, if it makes a difference.
