Grand Villa should be attainable too. Just checked for this year and all your days are there.....762 points!

Not shocking to me. We now always go the end of May/beginning of June (not during Memorial Day) and our mid-March spring break is busier than that week. It's not considered peek time though since school is not out for all yet. I think mid-June is when it's 'bad' until the 4th of July.

For booking though, I noticed the 4th or so books up faster. Not a bad time to go otherwise. Better than October - or so it feels to us.

With prices the summer is becoming less desirable to many.

Iíve done both weeks in the past, and what a difference! Holy cow! By July 6th, the parks seemed relatively empty!

We have twice in the past. But not standard. Once theme park, and once lake view...We'll be crossing our fingers later this year, and hoping to get a 1 bedroom for next June.

Worth noting that standard view might be hard to book at seven months
