If you think this time period might be when you typically will visit Disney (especially for a long trip such as 10 nights) you may want to rethink your home resort (and also make it a point to book earlier than your 3-6 month time frame) if you don't want to stay at SSR during that time of year.
it is way to busy for us at this time of year as a family. An adults only weekend trip would be in cards if the opportunity and availability to do so was there. I was using that as an example because the calculator that I was using did not have the 2013 points entered in it yet and we booked into the Beach Club Villas for next May though our Disney Vacation Expert.
