Oh No.... now what? What did you do?

Why with today's amazing technology can't they hold onto the new reservation long enough until the old one is cancelled?

This is what happened to me yesterday. I just wanted to crawl away and cry. This morning though, more inventory again.

reservation

I saw and picked up a room this morning, and then called and cancelled a cash reservation for that night . I keep checking just for fun, and there still seems to be intermittent availability for some nice popular times and places.

I noticed too as I've been checking online each day to change our reservation. I "almost" did it, but decided to keep what we have (1 week at BCV in January). I debated switching to WLV since it would feel more appropriate to January, but we decided we wanted to be able to walk to Epcot. I would have switched if a SV studio had been open at BLT. Good thing it wasn't. I do hope everyone that cancelled and rebooked has a room!

I guess I was lucky something was still available in boardwalk. Instead of 2 nights in a 1bd boardwalk garden view, I have 1 night in a garden view, 1 night in standard view.

Sadly, now i'm obsessed with checking inventory!

They usually will hold the new room while they cancel. But the guy today stated twice that he cannot hold the new room and there's a chance I would lose the original room. I don't know if it's the person I got today or a new policy.

Just checked online, and that room is now gone. Glad I managed to get it.

I also was able to grab a reservation that should not have been avail. I had 2 nights booked @ SSR 1 br for early Dec and was able to change to 3 nights std view at BWV! Had to do 3 nights because it was less points for two nights and the points were a combination of holding points and borrowed points and did not want to lose any points!!

Hope it is all ok for all of us!!!!

Well this entire thread has me nervous! We had a studio at SSR for 4 nights after New Years. I wait listed BWV when we made the reservation in late August and have checked on it 4-5 days a week since. Not one time did I ever see more than 1 of the nights I needed available at any given time. Then tonight, we get an email confirming that our wait list came thru for all 4 nights! I was pretty stunned but after reading all of this, I hope we have a room!
