BCV is generally not an issue at 11 months, even for studios. Even in early Dec I have not had a problem as long as I book at 8AM.

Agree - it’s mostly a myth that everything books up right at 11 months. And BCV tends to have good availability in all size rooms. It’s the cheap rooms or Conciege etc and a few select dates or times that are difficult but not all fall or all rooms etc. Whenever I see a “DVC has no availability” thread I look and almost without fail see that the post should have been “DVC has no availability for the exact cheapest room that I am entitled to book”.

Not taking any chances. My calendar is marked for next month to book for next year/October - two studios as of now.

Good to know though, if one forgets a day or two

Definitely walking for BLT Standard mid September.
I have been picking up the crumbs as they are dropped and have 12 nights booked.
I’m thinking they will walk til they get to NYE!

BCV is good at 11 months because it does not have view or room sub categories in studios.
All studios are the same with the exception of HA.
So a fairly large pool when you consider how subdivided the other resort studios are.

I believe there is a school break around 9/19. That’s when the BLT Standard walking started.

With only 48 total studios, I am walking a VGF studio for the third week of September. Not taking any chances.

So, I'm gonna try this walking thing for my AK-J VS. I just need to wait and see if room I see available now is still there is 30 minutes.

You and I were both trying for that same studio. I didn’t get it, either. And tomorrow isn’t looking any good. September 21, 2020 is already booked up.

Absolutely. I find it annoying or humorous (depending on my mood) that many DVC members are so wrapped up in booking what I call "teaser rooms". These are rooms few in number that (for good reasons) cost somewhat fewer points.

Seriously people, if you were booking at e.g. a Hilton, and they had a few slightly inferior rooms that they charged $175/nt for instead of $200/nt, would you be tearing your hair out 11 months in advance trying to book them?! If so, your friends would (a) audibly roll their eyes, (b) change the subject when you talk about it, (c) suggest counseling, (d) all of the above .
