Wow,

If you read the post you just wrote, what questions would come to your mind?
Would you think
"I wonder where the resort is that Wow says is booked in April?"
Would you think
"I wonder how big the resort that Wow says is fully booked is."
Would you think
"Why is Wow so surprised that people have already booked for April '03, when he/she is trying to do the same thing?"
Would you think
"Interesting that Wow says 'I am not that educated in travel' and yet Wow has found the Fodors talk section. Pretty good detective work"
Well, Wow, those are the things I thought when I read your post.
WIse comments, no, not even witty ones. Just questions left unanswered.

Easter is on the 13th so the week before and the week after get booked up 10-12 months in advance.

I stand corrected. Easter is April 20, 2003. The week before and the week after Easter are very busy weeks for resorts. I'm guessing the OP is looking at a Disney resort?????

We're all guessing. wow, what's the big secret? Why can't you tell us what resort is all booked up for April break? Is it embarassing or something? It isn't one of those nudist camps is it?

i think you should try calling different travel websites/companies for a reservation at the resort. i've experienced situations where the resort's reservationist says they're booked solid, but i've been able to book a room through another travel site. i assume that they hold a block of rooms for various package sellers, and if those travel sites can't book all the rooms, they're returned to the resort. this happened last year for a last minute christmas trip to hawaii. we tried booking three weeks before arrival, called the resort and were told it was full. we then went online and found rooms at the resort at amercian airlines' online vacation website. we were able to purchase hotel without air, and got a better price than what was listed on the resort website.

Note to sferator.

Please try to start your sentences with a capital letter.

Also, please try breaking up your posts into paragraphs.

You may have some interesting things to say, but they way you post makes it very difficult to read, and therefore people will tend to skip over your postings.

Feel free to flame away, but I do really mean this as a helpful suggestion.

no can do katie, that's just the way i type on forums for the sake of speed. if things get too tough for people, that's okay, no one will offend me by skipping over my comments. otherwise, a little extra effort doesn't hurt anyone. no harm, no foul, right who knew this was english class? but at least you can't say i don't punctuate!!!!!!!! have a great weekend!

No place in Bora Bora is booked solid for months on end.
Individual weekends and weeks can book up a year in advance.
Never booked solid though.
You exaggerate.
