June UY

I'm going to be getting information in the mail about DVC(VGC-Villas Grand California-not sure the abrreviation-very new) at GCH. When speaking with the "guide" (I think that's what they're called-again, very new) he mentioned I would have a June UY. Now, does that fall under receiving 08 and 09 points? or would I receive only 09 points in June?

If a family was traveling for Spring Break ( for us it's late march) or for Christmas/NYE ( we will always arrive after the 27th) Am i correct if December or February YU would be great?
Some years it might be NYE trip, some years it might be spring break - and once the children are grown, it would be Sept/Oct trips ( fall is my favorite time to go to WDW)
Can anyone expand on the when we would have to bank, or travel by dates for me? ~ I plan to print this post and keep it on file to refer to later this year.
I am really having a hard time getting the "deadlines" straight - i understand there is a timeframe to cancel and i want to be clear on that so we do not end up losing points ( spur of the moment trips to quickly use up left over
points is not an option for us)
thank you

Tina

Tina,

I completely understand. I am having a very hard time getting it too. I have had several people explain it to me and I still feel "DUH" about the whole thing.

We have been given a Feb YU, so I hope this is ok for us.

VGC is not open yet - which means that 2008 UY points most likely don't even exist.

Lets see if i've got this right now ( bound and determined to understand this YU stuff LOL)
trying to tie down if Feb YU is best for us.
assuming we are buying in in December this year ( 2009)
i would like our first trip home to be from December 28th, 2010 until
January 2, 2011. always staying at our home resort, BLT.
we will either buy 175 pts or 200 points, to make sure we have enough points every other year.

if my family had a Feb YU,
my current points are good from then ( purchase day) until 1/31/2010.
I would bank the 09 points, and then 3 months later, ( 2/1/2010) we would get current points. the banked points and the current points would then be in our acct, we would call on January 28th, 2010 to make our resservation ( exactly 11 mths)
*** when is the last date to bank points with a feb YU?

Edited: looking at the point charts on DVC news, we would use 317 points ( 3 weeknights in premier season, 1 weekend night in premier, and 1 weekeknd night in adventure season) So the minimum buy in, 160 points would be right on target. ( we would stay week long stays in March, 297 pts for a LV room - again right on target for every other year stay with 320 points allowance)

if we traveled in March, we would do the same, except we would be close on the cancellation window if something were to come up. ( expected travel dates of the last week of March )


so, have i got the jist of it?

Tina

The other thing about the VGC, you can't start making reservations for VGC till June when your use year starts and you can't book at your home resort until after Nov 30th when they are set to be complete. That is not how it normally works when you buy into DVC, it is just that this property is not done being built yet.

Misty - A February use year would not work very well for your December trips. With a February use year, your banking deadline is the following September 30. So if you canceled the December trip after Sept 30, you could not bank the points. They would have to be used by January 31 or they would expire.

Ideally, you want a use year that begins up to 6 or 7 months before your usual travel schedule.

Given what you have described, February, December and Sept/Oct trips, I would choose either August or September for your use year. June would also work. There is no July use year.

For example, with an August use year, your banking deadline is the following March 31. So with an August use year:

1. Your 2009 use year points are for trips between 8/1/2009 and 7/31/2010. Let's say you scheduled trips for September 2009, October 2009, December 2009 and February 2010. Assuming you have enough points for all that, LOL, all of the trips would be booked with points from your 2009 use year.

2. If you had to cancel any of those trips (assuming canceled at least 31 days prior to arrival), the points from the canceled reservation just go back into your account. Since the banking deadline for your 2009 points would be March 31, 2010, there is no problem if you wanted to bank them after the cancellation.

3. If you bank 2009 use year points, they go into the 2010 use year. 2010 use year goes from 8/1/2010 - 7/31/2011. If you don't use the banked points before 7/31/2011, they expire.

Hope that helps a bit. Ask another question if you need more help.

Misty...I was just getting ready to post this same advice and agree with Carol. Given you travel dates, August would work very well for you in terms of UY. All of your prospective travel dates fall in the 8 month banking window.

Any cancellations you have to do at least 31 days in advance would happen in time so that you can still bank and not lose those points!

Good luck!!!

i think what we have here is failure to communicate...

here is the sentence from the first page that i think you still need to let sink in:

"Remember, use year has nothing to do with when you may call to make a reservation."

even if you buy a resale with a dec UY and no points coming until dec 2011, you can book dec 2010 by calling in jan 2010 and borrowing the 2011 pts. there is just no relationship between UY month and when you can call to book...

i'm sorry that i'm not explaining this better, but let me say this again:

if you would be traveling over christmas vacation through spring break and summer (i.e. virtually never traveling sept through november), just tell the guide you want a december UY. that's probably best for your situation.

(a feb UY would be a poor choice if you plan on regularly traveling in late dec through january).

Charles - I know from your posts that you absolutely get use year.

But Misty said in her post that later on, she plans to travel in the fall, specifically in September and October. (She didn't say she wanted to travel during the summer). December would NOT be a good choice for fall travel. She's much better off with an earlier use year - July, August or September. As already posted, those use years would cover all her projected travel times.

You're absolutely right about making the reservations. Use year doesn't matter at all for that.

Carol

It's me
I understand now about that, did not mean to make it seem like i was still confused over reservations and UY, not related at all. i got it

Thank you for the info, thats why i wanted to ask the fine people here, i knew you could help me out we will ask for a August or September UY. I agree, that would work best for our travel dates ( with time to cancel if need be)

on a side note, we will not go anywhere near FL in Summer, ever been there, done that.

have a great evening all

Tina

We're looking to book our first trip "home" in July, 2010 and I'd appreciate a helpful hand on use year.

We picked up a 160-point contract in June, 2008 with a December UT, starting us out with 160 points from 2007. We banked those points but since we haven't been able travel yet, we've submitted to loosing those "free" 2007 points. A bummer, but the way it goes sometimes.

So the way my math works, our 2010 trip will be using our 2008 and 2009 UY points, right? Also, are the points withdrawn from our accounts when the ressies are made or when we check in? In other words, should I bank the 2008 points so they are available when we check in during July, 2010 or will they be yanked from our account when we book and no banking of them is required?

<whew> Thanks for the assist, gang!

Your July 2010 will use both your 08 and 09 points, but you must BANK the 08 points in order for them to be available for that trip--it does not automatically happen.

I believe you have until July 31st to do that. If you know you are not going to use them this year, then call MS and have them banked as soon as possible.

When you call to make the reservation in August (I am assuming you will be booking at the 11 month mark), just mention to MS that you want to be sure that all the banked points are used first. They should automatically do it this way, but it doesn't hurt to mention it during the call.

Good luck!!!
