After the weekends reach a certain level of occupancy, they restrict weekend only reservations to ones that include several weeknites. If they allowed all of the weekends to be filled up without requiring some weeknites in there. Nobody that wanted longer stays would be able to get in there.

Also, weeknites by themselves are harder to sell. Most people include at least one weekend in their vacations. Very few folks go on vacation on Sunday night and leave Friday morning.

Althoug many of us here know how to work the system, we are a VERY small number of the folks booking campsites at WDW.
Might be. But that just makes might brain hurt to think of something so ridiculous.

I now just have to cancel my old reservation and knock off a few nights from the new one. I was hoping to get into a preferred site, but I will take extra nights over the preferred site.
So glad I could help!

I hope you have a wonderful trip! My favorite time to visit Disney is Halloween!
