Someone brought this up, maybe earlier this year, about trying to book at MiraCosta as soon as the 6 month window is open and it is already showing as completely booked up. Well, I'm running into that very same problem. My 6 month window is but just a few days away and, just to have an idea, I've been going ahead and checking availability for the last day that the calendar will allow you to book and it is coming back with no rooms available. How is that possible? I was all for returning to the Hilton, but seems that here lately, their rates are only just a little cheaper than the Disney properties at the more popular times of the year, so my husband is like "let's just pay a little more to stay at MiraCosta". Is there a little trick I'm missing, a little loophole perhaps, where you can book earlier than that 6 month window? Otherwise, I have no idea how all the rooms -- at least, the less expensive rooms such as the Tuscany or Venice side -- are completely booked up as soon as that window opens up. Ideas? Anybody?
