Another room first person. As others noted, flights are usually out later. Also, even though it’s not my preference, we can drive worst case scenario but that won’t matter if you don’t have a room to stay in.

I don't usually book very far in advance. So I will see what rooms are available, then open another tab to see if Southwest flight look like a reasonable number of points, then book. If it is a hard to get room I might book it first, but usually I can check flights at the same time.

Add me to the room first group and almost always at 11 months. Transportation comes later. I prefer to fly but I will drive if there is no other option.

Thanks for all the responses. I'm not going until Dec. 2020 and I have to play guessing games on what flights will cost and which days will be better to fly. I'm going to book my room at 11 months and hope that I guessed right as far as cost of flights.

I think I'll be able to change the room dates if I need to before the 7 month hits since it's a Poly standard studio.
