Default CCV Studio Availability

Still itching to buy CCV but even just looking at the 11-month window for next spring (the entire month of March 2020) and there is squat for availability compared to every other resort. I have read about issues with studios but it really concerns me. Thoughts?

We bought some there and I will tell you my experience. I wanted a studio and a 2BR for Dec 18-21. I booked the studio for early Nov and began walking it. Then forgot to bump ahead for a couple days (while on a cruise the first week of January) and the availability got away from me so I had to cancel and try again. So for several mornings I woke up early and got online to try and grab a studio and could not. I ended up just booking a cabin for Dec 19-21. December is toughest at CCV though. Sept through race weekend in Jan is tough but I think Dec is THE toughest.

I can share my experience. We just bought 150 CCV points. We already had 50 points so 200 total. Our new points went into our account the afternoon of our 11 month booking window for March. I was pretty devastated that Iíd just paid $$$ for direct points and couldnít book the 6 nights I wanted at 11 months exactly. I was trying to book 2 studios. I tried every morning for a week. I logged in at 7:30, refreshed at 8:00am exactly and each day that opened up disappeared instantly. I did manage to piece it together but it took a LOT of time. My 2 studios for 6 nights in March are currently booked with 7 reservations! I need to call MS. Iím assuming they can merge all those reservations together.

What do you consider a small contract?

I do think the guides are deliberately misleading. We did a tour of CCV whilst staying at BRV this March. He tried to tell us that if we bought 100 points we could stay in a cabin for a week by banking and borrowing. I thought his numbers were off and of course when I looked at the points chart he was totally off! We knew it was BS but a newer member may be more trusting.

I think the alternate studio also makes studio booking more desirable at CCV. A friend of mine secured two studios for July in the 11 month window,

The current minimum for new owners, which is 100 points.

When you look at the charts for CCV, those 100 points do not go far.
Look at September, the lowest point chart for the resort. This is for a one week stay Sat-Sat at CCV.


Studio 107 pts
1-Bedroom 204 pts
2-bedroom 269 pts
Grand Villa 688 pts
Cabin 639 pts

This is helpful to read. I literally pulled up nearly every resort and Feb/March (even with spring break) at all resorts is almost all open. CCV is only spotty. I get new owners probably wanting to stay at Home Resort and I get December but man. We loved our stay there but...

Are you sure about the numbers for the 1BR? 1BR’s always cost more than studios...

buy brv instead...resale. much cheaper, much shorter commitment but still long enough to resell later, studios sleep 5, and availability is excellent at 11 months.
