I’m using a credit thru David’s for a short stay next spring (late March arrivaI). I’ve already put in an early request, though the 11- month mark is still a cpl of weeks away… and now I’m wondering if I should alter my request before their deadline for changes.
I’m debating 3 vs 4 nts. (4 is always better, right??)
I know all DVC prior history is out the window rn, but which do you think is more likely to be available (and I’m happy to waitlist for a few months as needed):
All are standard studio unless noted-
3 nts @ either Poly, GF (lake studio) or Riviera (pref studio)
4 nts @ any of BCV, BWV (std or pref), Riv (std), BLT (std or lake), GF (std).
Imho, there’s no “bad” choices, we haven’t stayed at any of these before, just happy to be planning again!
I’d pick Poly lakeview of all those b/c you really do get to see the MK, unless your balcony is on the ground or behind a palm tree. BLT lake or standard view is good, I don’t think park view is worth it there. I have no desire to stay at Riveria… there’s nothing appealing there for me. Of those three Poly is my favorite, love the vibe, food choices and proximity to the park. And 11 months out should be good.
Thx for the replies! Good info & I’ll check those links out. We’re honestly happy anywhere, so at this point it’s about strategic choosing, if that’s even possible these days.
I do think I mostly understand how the whole 11 vs 7 mos thing works… but at this point, I guess it’s more about whether an owner wants to actually rent their points out, for any options to be available… is that right?
11 months out is for home resort owners and then they get to make reservations at 7 months for all other places. For example, our home resort is Aulani and I jump on my 11 month window right away to get my dates, but I can’t reserve any where else sooner than 7 months out. I’ve never had a lot of trouble w/ getting dates at 60 days w/ a lot of stalking. I’ve never given points to others, like Dave’s, before so I’m not sure how that works. I would hope that Dave’s would be in communication w/ owners w/ requested dates; I think it would help them.
