Is it too early for trading via II into Gatlinburg for late September? Last Fall, we stayed at the Westgate and would like to return there this Fall. So far, our lockouts are not pulling anything. Is it too early? or will our lockout not pull anything?

I am hoping we are not too late for Gatlinburg. Last year we went in late September and would like to go at that time again. Granted, we missed the fall foliage, but we also missed the crowds. I will keep checking.

Keep checking, I am going right in the middle of it all. Oct 15th. The week you want should not be as difficult. shaggy

I don't know about II, but in RCI, I'm only getting one resort in the area for one particular week out of all of September/October. You may well have waited too late unless you've got a pretty strong trader.

When I called II today, I was told that I am too early to get a trade in Gatlinburg for mid to late September. That is not high season. Cannot remember how far out we made a trade last year. This year, all we have to trade is lock-out, so it may be difficult to get what we want.

I pulled 11 resorts in the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge/Sevierville area for Sept. and Oct. timeframe. There seems to be a lot of availability.
