Mad at myself-borrow those **** points next time!

Instead I'm sitting here on the waitlist. A couple months ago, I decided to upgrade our BCV reservation, during the F&W festival, to a 1 BR-"It's been a tough year for DH, he deserves it!" But when I called I would have had to borrow from next year's BCV points since I was outside 7 months. But if I just waited 4 short days, I'd be at 7 months and could use this year's points we own elsewhere. Sure, I'll wait-don't borrow! In those 4 days, I don't know what happened, but availability for that 1 BR disappeared, and now I've been sitting here for almost 2 months on the waitlist. Lesson learned! If there's a DVC resort you want, don't wait-BORROW those D***** points!

I'm happy to dance with you
I have 2 opinions
We had tried usual things to keep them away, including something like coyote urine, it is sold in hardware stores by us

With only SSR and AKV points I had to book VWL for F & W. I'm on two waitists -- one for BCV and one for BWV (BV). I'm hoping the BCV will come through. If it doesn't we'll still enjoy VWL.

There is still plenty of time! I have had good luck in the past with getting on the wait list at 7 months, even at BCV in October. I hope it works out for you! I am waitlisted for BCV in October too (a studio) I am very optimistic!

I thought you could only be on one "waitlist"? Someone please enlighten me. TIA

Hey Maryland neighbor! You can have two wait lists active for any reservation.
