xx Grand Villa @ 7 mos out?
« Thread started on: Jul 19th, 2010, 01:01am »

What are the chances we could get a non-home resort Grand Villa @ 7 months out? We are thinking of doing a big trip with my inlaws, my mom and sister possibly in 9/2011 for a Sunday-Friday stay. We can borrow a few points from 2012 and have enough for a GV @ BLT- our home resort, but would have points left over if we got into, say OKW. What do you all think- impossible??

I've never tried for a grand villa so really don't have an answer. If it's only a few points to borrow for BLT, then why don't you book at 11 mo. window and then hope to transfer to OKW at 7 months. By the way, we LOVE OKW. I think you'd be very happy there! smiley

We've stayed in a GV at OKW (and it is awesome!) but my in-laws have their home points there so we were able to book at 11 months out. Prior to the AKV points we recently bought we never had the option to book a GV at our home resort (since VWL doesn't have any) and we've never tried to switch to one at 7 months so I'm not sure how difficult it would be.

I agree with Irenaroo - if you can book it at BLT, I would go ahead and book it there. You can always bank your current year points into the next year if you're able to switch to OKW or another resort that would use fewer points.

That's what we'll do for sure- book at home and see where else we might be able to get at 7 mos. Is this where those funky "reservation" points come into play, though? Not sure I understand the rules on those.
