    Lagunamar goes have some separate event fixed week 51 and 52 inventory. As discussed in another thread half of phase 1 and all of phase 2 are event weeks 51 and 52, meaning you have to own it to book it.

    I believe all the ski resorts have 51/52 as a fixed week. Riverside definitely does.

    But SDO/WKV it is floating, and I think that's true at WDW/WMH as well. Vistana villages in Orlando also has week 52 float, as well as at least some phases of Vistana resort.

    Easy to book weeks 51 and 52 at WKV and WDW. Probably cause there’s not much to do during that time in the desert. Too cold to enjoy the pools.

    I think how platinum season is set up might also be a factor. I think this resorts are all 1-21, 51,52. If you own a plat week and wait for 52, you'll be too late to book anything good (or possibly anything at all) if you don't get it. Seems a bit risky, especially for those without staroptions (WMH/WDW resale owners )
