If I purchase destination points and book right at 13 months, is it reasonable to expect New Year’s weeks in Hawaii? Other areas? (In the future, not during this crazy year.). Thanks.

I saw them at 12 months. Depends on what resort. Ko Olina for sure, MOC maybe not. I specifically was looking for Waiohai and they were available at the time. Very spendy for those nights, though, but the 2nd through the 6th of January were crazy cheap due to some nuances of the leap year calendar.

I got an II trade into Kauai that included New Years back in Feb. Just doing normal search not ongoing (and before everything went crazy.)
Used the studio portion that was going to expire to get 1 Bedroom.
