Is it too late to try for Christmas in Hawaii?
Right now, I cannot pull it with a lockout (and didn't think I would be able)
I have not yet deposited Desert Springs -- just wondered if that would pull anything in Hawaii for Christmas 2006.

Christmas in Hawaii is a tough trade - any time! However, why not try?

Use "request first", retaining your week so that you can use it, if you don't get the trade you seek. An ongoing search will almost always have a much better chance of landing a difficult trade than simply searching online.

If you have a great Platinum week, you might have a reasonable chance, as long as you don't need a 2BR in a resort that has lockouts. It's rare that a 2BR lockout Hawaii owner will deposit such a week intact.
