What would you say the most common complaints amongst DVC members, about DVC are?

That Disney's "Best kept secret" is no longer a secret Puzzled

There was a time when you could make short-notice reservations to a DVC resort, with little or no advance notice.

You still can at some times of the year, if you want a 2 or 3 bedroom. It's near impossible for a studio though.

You can still make short notice reservations. Scrappy and I did it in Sept last year, for a week, we stayed in 5 different resorts in 8 days. You may just have to move around a bit! Wink It was actually sort of fun and we stayed in 3 resorts we never stayed at before and found out if we liked them or not.

That's sort of how Tori and I ended up with our split stay in October, that was booking 6 months out. We had one night at the Grand Floridian, but we couldn't get two nights at any one other resort, nor could we get studios. We ended up with 3 resorts over 3 nights, and we couldn't get a studio everywhere.

For Tori and myself, it was an experience that we decided we don't want to repeat again. A new hotel every night was just too much for us, and we had some serious trouble with our dining plan, and assigned rooms, because of it.

Yes, 2 + bedrooms are mostly still available on a short notice, and/or willingness to move several times during your stay (to a new resort) will work & is an entertaining way to experience other mickey resorts yeah! In the past, we occasionally stayed at multiple resort during our visit, and we all enjoyed it clapping

But short notice Studios are as evasive as spotting a Sasquatch at the Grand Floridian pool rolling Btw, we've never stayed at the Grand Floridian, it's on our bucket list crossfingers

For us, checking out from one resort by 11:00 and worst case scenario having to wait/come back at 4:00, may take away from park time and R&R eek And some may have to consider refrigerated meds, foods, etc. wheelchair

Por favor mantengase alejado de las puertas mickey

We were able to book a 4-night stay in a preferred studio at Saratoga Springs with 1 day notice last August. We were also able to add 3 nights to our September stay at SSR in a 1 bedroom 2 days before leaving.

It is possible, but it definitely depends on when you're going and where you are willing to stay.

JanJ; very true, but the more desirable DVC resorts are almost impossible to lock-in if not way in advance. mickey

On our 5 Resort in 8 day trip (which was actually in Sept not June) we did end up getting t he Poly for two nights, and the Wilderness Lodge for two nights. The others were Old Key West, Saratoga Springs for two nights each and Bay Lake for 1 night. They were all Studios except Bay Lake which was a 1 bedroom. Only two of the moves were a problem time wise. But then again we drive so we just packed up and moved ourselves. I will say I would not really want to move that often again though. We were booking those day by day on our drive down there. That was truely a hang on by the seat of our pants trip.
