Right. Only the points you own at each home resort can be used before 7 months at that one resort. So the 160 AKL points could be used at 11 months for AKL, but not, for example, for a BLT or OKW reservation, for which you'd have to wait until the 7 month mark.
Likewise, and HHI or VB points can only be used starting at 7 months for and onsite WDW DVC resort (or VGC for that matter).
