I had a Saratoga Springs reservation for December 20-25 and called to change DVC resorts at the 7 month window. Of course, there were no studios available anywhere so I had to waitlist. My two options were Boardwalk Villas and Bay Lake Tower. Unbelievably, my waitlist came through a couple of days ago and we are now confirmed in a preferred view studio at the Boardwalk Villas. Not only did my waitlist come through for a December stay but it came through in less than two weeks. I'm shocked! :scared1:

People cancel trips. :goodvibes That's one of the side-effects of trying to plan 11 months ahead of time.

That is great! Have a wonderful time. I hope my wait list comes through for an MK view at BLT in January! If not I still have the standard view. :lmao:

That's the beauty of the DVC system! While you were wanting to change resorts, so was someone else at your waitlisted resort! :thumbsup2

I was surprised this year as well. We had made a reservation at BWV (BW View 2BR) 11 months in advance of our post Thanksgiving dates. At 7 months I called to switch to the BCV. While they didn't have all the nights available when I called, the waitlist came through in a couple of weeks. Last year we had to wait for months for a BCV studio waitlist to come through for our post Tirkey Day trip.

I'm sure the economy has had an effect on the waitlist success a lot of us have been experiencing. I also believe the new "two option" waitlist policy has provided positive results as well. My current waitlist was for preferred view at BWV or Bay Lake view at BLT. As I mentioned earlier, my waitlist came through at BWV. Now I'm struggling with whether I want to keep the BWV reservation and enjoy the proximity to Jelly Rolls, EPCOT and DHS or should I reactivate my waitlist for BLT. Hmmmm?? :rolleyes1

My first of 2 waitlists came in over the weeking. I had Dec 14-18 in an AKV value view Studio but I had Dec 13th in a standard view. It came Through quickely. I still have a waitlist for a std view BWV for Dec 20-23. I currently have AKV std view. Both of these were 7 month changes from OKW.
