Thank you!

I just found out today that we made it past ROFR and was wondering about availability during week 51. I'm looking at Orlando to see the folks and the Mouse for a few days. I have read here on TUG Orlando is rarely a problem, but the curiosity was killing me...
Thanks for posting because there are, indeed, people out there wondering.

I booked week 52 at Orlando yesterday, there were many rooms of all sizes (even some are 3BR Penthouse).

Week 51 and 52 are event weeks in many locations, but they are not an event week in FL, so availability for FL should be fine.

51 and 52 are event weeks in Las Vegas, and there is still plenty of availability.

I have reserved 2(!) 2-bedroom units at the Valdoro from December 21-25. I will check in at the Sheraton Mountain Vista on the 25th where I own that week.


I was surprised, but it was there...
The first day I checked there wasn't any availability. The next day, availability was there starting the 22nd and later that day there was availability starting Saturday 19th.

Just booked Dec 26-31 at Grand Waikikian. More points than I want to use (6510) but I figured we'd snag it and then change it later if something better comes up. Will keep checking to see if we can swap into one of the other towers.

Here's what I saw earlier in the week (a very different picture)

Here's what I saw on March 25 during the middle of the day (where we had the ability to book up to Sat 12/25 checkout).

Orlando - plenty of availability in all unit sizes
Las Vegas - plenty of availability in all unit sizes
Oahu - one bdrms Kalia Tower & Grand Waikikian, Lagoon Tower was a little hard to tell but it looked like folks may have been using the changeable reservations feature for studio, one bdrm and two bdrm
Waikoloa - plenty of availability in all unit sizes at Waikoloa Beach Resort, 2bdrm (including 2 bdrm penthouses) at Bay Club and 1 bdrm at Kings' Land
Carlsbad - plenty of availability in all unit sizes
Colorado - almost nothing (not a full week)
South Beach - plenty of availability in all unit sizes

It definitely pays to use the changeable reservations for destinations other than Orlando & Vegas :D

Congratulations :clap:
Some folks might release their days if they decide later they can't afford it (i.e. airfare is too high from their area, unemployment, etc).
Definitely keep checking and Good Luck :)
