Using DVC availability tables is helpful in determining which days are available to book your vacation. You can see a DVC availability table by visiting the DVC website, which will display the average number of days available for booking. In the traditional red/green light format, green indicates that most days are available; red indicates that availability is tighter than normal. To determine if a particular day is available, look for availability numbers of at least seven.
If you want to avoid the booking process, you can rent DVC points from owners directly. However, be aware that this type of booking is a multi-year commitment. For this reason, it is important to book your DVC vacation points at least seven months in advance. If you are eligible for priority booking, you can make a reservation as early as 11 months in advance.
The availability charts for DVC are easy to read and use. For example, if you’re looking for a 2-bedroom lock-off at Boardwalk, the chart will indicate that there are eight to thirteen nights available within a seven-month booking window. The availability chart is updated weekly. To make sure that you are able to book in advance, check the DVC availability charts every week.

The biggest DVC resorts tend to fill up first, and smaller resorts fill up last. Saratoga Springs Resort is usually the last to fill up. The smallest DVC resorts at WDW and Disneyland are VGF and VGC. Studios and two-bedrooms are usually the most popular, while 1-bedrooms are the least popular.
