    Good morning all!
    So the time has come for me to start planning the 2020 trip! Hurrah!!
    I see there have been some hotel and ticket dates realeased, but when I’ve been looking at prices (both 2019 and 2020) I notice none of the 2 bed villas come up.
    Does anyone know when dates and prices will be released?
    We always booked 15/16 months in advance when the free dining is released but that doesn’t seem to be the case anymore?
    Thanks

    I’ve found in recent years when doing dummy bookings, dreaming of going back, that on day of release not all of the likes of OKW and SS had all their rooms available but they were added a few days later. Mind I’ve also found that the price of them compared to others have increased more. I think they used to encourage stays in DVC resorts to U.K. visitors hoping they’d buy the DVC.

    Hope you get what you want. I’m hoping the prices currently out do just get free dining added and if so will be going back next year.

    The last couple of years they do not release SSR and OKW with the rest of the rooms - these are now only available at the same time they are available to DVC members. From memory 9 months out, but that might be wrong.
    I was advised last year to book at a "hotel you can bear" when rooms are released and then upgrade if / when the DVC rooms are released.

    You book the deal at the time and then just change the hotel nearer the time. I did it this year. They honour the DDP / gift card etc.

    So which hotel did you book originally? Does it work if you book say a Mod then change to OKW? I’d be intending to book Mod and upgrade dining from quick service to 1 sit down, do they then treat the booking as just straight booked at OKW? Thanks

    For various reasons I’ve changed hotel twice for my September trip this year and I still have everything from the offer.
    Yes, book a moderate then upgrade -that doesn’t cost you anything other than the change in room cost. If you book an original hotel that costs more than SSR/ OKW and then “downgrade” to one of them, you wlll have to pay a £50 admin fee
