When do reservations open?

I was interested in a Wyoming trip in 2013 and realized many places were already booked. We're shooting for late July 2014 now. When do you think reservations would open for properties within the park for this time frame?

...and even if things show booked for next summer, there are cancellations all the time. You just have to check the Xanterra website often and you will get what you want this far out. To see how it works, just open the Xanterra Reservation page (while you are at work, lol) check one of the lodgings every hour or so and you will see it change throughout the day for things over the next couple of weeks!

Definitely agree that things change all the time. No doubt that you could get exactly what you want (even multiple nights in the same lodging room) with diligence over time. If that's the only reason you're changing your dates, worry not and just keep trying, book one night at a time and then call in to add on new nights (rather than book online) so that you don't get billed for the additional nights deposit if staying in the same location.

I agree with May 1 , 2012 for 2013 dates. This is a newer policy, so I plan on May 1, 2013 for all of 2014. Enjoy the planning.
