How difficult is it to reserve 7 months out?

My wife is an anti-bac machine. Before we are even allowed to enter the room she cleans EVERYTHING including tubs faucets jets handles, checks for bed bugs...its like she picks up the room and gives it a Karen Silkwood Shower Special.
You can throw a dishwasher pod in the tub, run it for a while, and then rinse it. My wife is beyond anti-bac, for medical reasons. She essentially has no immune system. Google Common Variable Immunodeficiency Syndrome. It's a genetic thing, your body does not make the necessary stuff. She gets infused with human immunoglobulin every month just to give her the ability to fight off the common cold. On top of that, she is allergic to most antibiotics - they put her into anaphalyxis. Two totally unrelated medical issues that go great together. So, yeah, she kind of cleans everything. She also loves jetted tubs. Me, I never liked them. We have one at home, I never use it. Hot tubs on the other hand, I can spend hours in.

For the OP, we’ve been DVC at SSR since 04 and have never stayed there. We’ve always been able to get a 2 Bedroom at BLT and VGF without problem. Granted most of our stays are in August.

Interesting about the dishwasher pod. Sorry about your wife's condition. While I am anti anti-bac, I do realize it is important and necessary for some. Kind of why I don't do it, to help make sure things are more effective for people who do need it. I hope that her treatments and cleaning do help keep her safe for many years to come.

I'm like you, not into jetted tubs. I do hot tubs though. Wish I could spend days in them at times (I have spinal issues that cause muscular problems).

Thanks for the well wishes. We don't use a lot of anti-bacterial stuff either. Just things like Lysol, bleach, soap, alcohol, things like that. Bacteria do not build up a resistance to those items.

Pool and Spa water is a "thing" for me. My pool water at home is awesome. I never have algae outbreaks, the water is crystal clear, and nobody every complains about chlorine smell (which is actually the smell of combined cholomines, and mine never get above 0.5 ppm). Public pools and even more so, hot tubs are giant petri dishes, but I still go in them. Disney does do a pretty good job with their pools and spas. Granted, I don't have access to their filters and dosing pumps, but frown what I have seen, they are pretty good about maintaining sanitary conditions.

I have friends who do studying and research into the whole resitant bacteria issue and boy did they open my eyes. We even intentionally avoid certain soaps and such. Bleach is fine. Lysol is fine. Most of my cleaning is regular vinegar/water mix. It does a good job and we pull out the others for bigger stuff for when it's more necessary.

I would absolutely love a pool or a hot tub at home. Like you, I still go in them. I do shower or at minimum wash my hands when I am done. I do trust our local pools but I know some of the people who run them ;) I do avoid the indoor water parks though. I get skeeved out by the idea of those.

I try not to worry too much about it while on vacation. We're normal people with normal immune systems and what we do seems to work okay at least.
