We're booked at AKV Kidani for four nights (12/23-12/27), but I've been reading some reviews and decided to waitlist Jambo for that time period - just to see.

I've not stayed at either one (in fact, this is our first stay as DVC members) but I understand that Jambo is closer to most of the amenities.

I don't have much hope that it will come through, and it is going to cancel itself in a few days anyways, but we'll see. I'm thrilled to be staying at either one!

We are waitlisted for Grand Californian for June...I'm totally freaking out about it. Has anyone else WL for there? I'm not sure at what point I should just give up the dream. I was literally on 2 days after the 7 month window, and NOTHING was available...I'll sleep anywhere. ugh

Another frequent waitlister here...ok maybe not frequent but I've definitely had a few of them in my history. Some successful and some not so much.

I am hopeful that I'll win this game of Resort Waitlist Roulette but the problem is...I'm not sure which waitlist I'd rather win???

Currently booked for four nights at OKW in January...slow season, so I'm hopeful for lots of cancellations and changes. I check almost daily on availability at other resorts. We have 7 of us, and it would be nice to get a 2BR but I'm also open to doing a 1BR and Studio or 2 studios somewhere, but you can't do that kind of waitlist easily or online. So instead I check often to see what's out there.

So right now we are waitlisted for a 2BR Standard View at Kidani AND/OR a 2BR Standard View at Boardwalk. This morning I noticed a 1BR Standard View at Kidani was open for all 4 nights...but no studios at any view level for those same four nights and 2 1BRs would be more points than I'd want to part with right now.

There was also a 1BR Std View open at Boardwalk...for Fri and Sun night but not Sat or Mon night. So I'm hopeful that maybe that will open up.

I wish I knew my chances of getting any of these. I feel pretty good that we might get one of the two waitlists sometime in the next four weeks but if not we are okay with OKW!

A few days ago. I think it was the same day the waitlist was set to expire (7 days out).

I was actually logging in to do my online check-in and noticed that it said Jambo instead of Kidani. I didn't get an email or anything.

Another quick question...what type of accomodations were you waitlisting? Maybe I missed it. I just wonder if waitlists are easier for the 1BR or Studios than a 2BR like we are looking for right now.

I don't think I ever posted that - these were studios.

Joining this group late ... I have a 2-night reservation in hand for GCV but am on the waitlist for 3 nights in either Studio or 1BR unit. There are only 2 of us going ... so the larger unit won't be particularly appreciated. We can stay longer (that extra night) if we can downgrade the unit size.

My fingers crossed ... and I'm stalking inventory online daily!

Does anyone have experience with HHI wait list. I have two nights of a three night stay for July. I am nervous that the third (middle) night will not come through and wonder if I should find other arrangements. Thanks.

I booked AKV Jambo House for May 5-9, I just waitlisted with the VWL. I like the idea of taking the boat to the MK when the weather is nice. If it does not come through I'll be happy at AKV, but I figured it couldn't hurt try to waitlist.

I just started my first ever waitlist!

I had an extra 66 points to use up by August. I really want to stay at BWV. It's the only DVC resort in WDW that I haven't stayed at.

I ended up booking 4 nights at OKW and waitlisting BWV....hoping for some

Summer is peak season at HHI. If you are definitely going and you are missing a night in the middle, I would secure a cash reservation (if there is still availability) so that you at least have a room. If the waitlist comes through, you can cancel the cash night. This is especially true if you are waitlisted for a studio or a 1BR since there are only 21 of each, compared to 76 2BR's.

We did this for our Easter vacation. We are arriving Saturday night but only had enough points for 4 weeknights. So at the 11 month mark, I made a cash reservation for the first two nights (Saturday and Sunday). At the 7-month mark, I was going to use my AKV and a few one-time use points to book Sunday night (only 25 points for a 2BR) but there was no availability when I called. So I waitlisted the Sunday night and crossed my fingers that it would come through. I wasn't really confident since there was no availability when I called at noon on the day the 7-month window opened, but it did come through.
