Yay! We’re in too! We booked the Grand Floridian for May 30 - June 5. We haven’t been back for 7 years, ( I know!!!!) so this is totally exciting! I can’t even wait!
The rest of the competitive dancers our studio will be in Orlando for Masquerade Nationals that week (Orlando Convention Center I think?), but our Pom competitive teams (Kindergarten - 12th) are doing Disney's Dance the World June 20-24. You might see some of them at the CBR pool - we're vacating CBR on the 24th for another hotel or rental for a few days TBD. The week of July 4th will be a blast, all you can do is roll with it.Yay for June 2020! We are booked June 28-July 5. I'm worried about holiday crowds but we are going with my DD's dance company and didn't get much say in the dates they chose. Staying at CBR and I'm sure it will be a great time.
Hang in there! We needed a BCV studio rental and it took us 9 weeks our request fulfilled.I'm getting so stressed out!
I'm planning our June trip from June 10 to 16th and am going with our best friends who are celebrating their anniversary. We're trying to rent Beach Club DVC and have had our request in since the 11 month window opened. I'm worried that because we're trying to get a 2 bdrm villa for that long, the points it will require will take a long time and we might be at the 7 month opening mark before they can put in the reservation and then we may not get it. I obsessively watch the DVC availability tool - we had originally put in for the Boardwalk 2 bdrm, but that filled up fast, so switched to Beach Club 2 weeks in. Which I know, is the most popular and has the longest wait list. Have fall back resorts, and am looking at a split stay to include Contemporary DVC.
Does anyone have any thoughts about how many DVC owners have 297 pts to resell? I really just don't know how many points the average DVC owner has to know if that's a lot to ask/hope for, and if putting in for the split stay before 7 months is safer as it will take less pts per resort? Gonna go haunt the DVC forums some to see if I can find an answer.

Like you, my hubby does not care for Disney. So, it will just be the kids and I. Once of their cousins might be joining us too, I haven't figured out all the details yet. Since I will be traveling with teenagers and a early twenty year old, we will be staying in the parks late. I would love to get them up and out to the park but not counting on it. I will plan for one or two early days and then the rest we will play it by ear with fastpasses in late morning or early afternoon.This will be my 6th WDW trip, and the 1st WDW trip for all the others. I haven't been to WDW since '05 (when I dragged my DH there and he said he never wanted to do that again), but DS & I have done 7 DLR trips in the last 10 years, including 4 with these friends we'll be with in WDW. My grumpy DH hates Disney vacations, so we leave him home and the 5 of us travel together to DLR, and now I get to introduce them and my DS to WDW! The 5 of us make a great Disney parks team - we can all get ready quickly in the mornings, we're all flexible, we all love Disney vacations, and we have a similar sense of humor, and we each take different roles in planning.
