Wow 5.5 weeks is one of the longer ones I recall reading about. Looking forward to your reporting especially going as far as Portugal. Albarracin was one of our favorite stops (non ED).

Yes your choices could be rejected if they're booked on those dates. This happened to me because I was going for a date less than 60 days away. Somehow my dealer was able to get me in though.
