The point is not getting an advantage 200 days from the stay. My whole point was for more flexibility not less. I have never been blocked from getting exactly what I wanted when booking 100+ days out. the only exception was V+A Chef's Table which I booked right at 180 like 6 years ago..I do not know why DVC members should get an advantage at say Flying Fish. However, if they wanted to give some advantage to all those staying at the resort a little more advance booking, that might not be wrong. Maybe EVERYONE staying at Boardwalk (Villas and Inn) book BW restaurants 10 days before others? Or at least to a portion of the table. I do not see this as a DVC thing however, I just contend that it is nice to be able to eat at your resort.
I see zero reason to give even further advanced booking because how easy it is to get a space (but maybe not the exact time) in a restaurant already (except for maybe 3 or 4 dining experiences).
