However, the 10th is showing as available so tomorrow, maybe I can grab a villa, my work browser though is so slow I am not holding out.
Im most likely not understanding what you are trying to book. However, why cant you book the 8th and pick up a day at a time going forwards, seeing as its a walker preventing you booking each day?

I could do that, but I need to book 2.5 weeks in total, so there is a huge risk I will book a few days then be blocked out for a day somewhere.

I really need to book a week at the 11 month and then add on days till I get my 17 days.

I am considering booking a view room and going less days as these are about 1/3rd more in points.

I still have time though, AS long as I return before end of Nov (as thats when out AP will run out)

Just noticed you are trying to book the most popular view/point Value BWV studio. TBH, its the same with BLT standard view at popular/low point times. Plus, AKV Club and Value.

Still blocked out, however the days behind are all free so far in September, so I will keep trying each day, but as long as they all stay free I will be able to book something. Ideally I want Early October, so will see what happens.

I do wonder how long these people have been walking for, I am thinking they are probably walking to Christmas!

I think the whole walking thing causes panic and then more walk, before long it will be impossible to get any date at the 11 month window due to walkers any time of year for these low point villas

We have always been able to book 2 AKL value studios for September or a 2 bed. This year nothing available so I am having to do the same as Andrina and pick up the single days as someone is dropping them. Will know for next year but its a real pain.
At one point even the 1 bed values only had a few days showing. Now most days are available though as people have released them.

This is exactly what I think is happening & more & more people are panicking and joining in - Ill be honest, because Im booking a special trip for extended family and have told them Im gifting it to them as a birthday present, this one time I too would be buying into this panic if my points were available to do it - but then Id be adding to the problem, based on the if you cant beat them, join them mentality, which I absolutely hate!

Please DVC change this system to stop this hysteria! ☹️

Stil locked out, one day mid-September is now waitlist so I cant book a full 17 days at the moment. Looking like I book a pool or BW view for 30 points more per week, and then maybe either booking less days or consider another resort at the 7 month mark.

Am unsure what to do, will keep on trying for now, still got a few weeks
