Hi folks,

starting next years vacation planning and was wondering what my chances would be of getting a 2 bedroom villa at Bay Lake at the 7 month window for a July 2020 trip?

It should be quite good. The exception might be if the trip is over the 4th but even then it's still possible.

From experience, odds should be good (I had 2BR July 4th week 2018) Tough date would be July 3-4th. There are 74 dedicated 2BR lake view villas - at 7 months If availability is limited waitlist dates, they should come through.
I ended up renting my July 4th BLT week to a friend and subsequently snagged a 2BR BWV at 5 months for July 4th week

good luck in December

I'm thinking of doing the same thing for last weekend in March - here's hoping for some pixie dust for us both!

Pretty darn good. Summer is usually not as hard as other locations. We've had good luck booking BLT 2 bedrooms summer months. Though July 4th weekend could be tough.

Peak week of the summer....ironically, the week after July 4th is the slowest week of the summer.....until the kids go back to school.
