There is a 1 BR available at the Beach Club for one of the nights of my wait list (Monday). NEED ADVICE!

Should I book this room and stay waitlisted at Saratoga? If waitlist comes through, it will auto switch it if I indicate that on my waitlist, correct? It's only 5 points more so if I lose that it's not that big of a deal.

Another question, if I indicate on waitlist to replace existing reservation, will it only replace this ONE day or will it replace the other 3 days I have booked?

Personally I would NOT book that unless you change the Sunday to BC too...then you have two nights at Beach club and the remainder at SSR. Do you really want to move twice? I bet your SSR night comes available. As you get closer people are going to cancel days closer to that 31 day window plus there are probably others that are booked at SSR but wait listed at other resorts...so when those comes available...SSR will open up. I would rather book a discounted DVC rate for that Monday night as back up than move twice. That is just my opinion.

This morning I looked and 3 days opened up at Saratoga Springs--- Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday. This was the most availability I had seen all weekend.....so I booked it! I waffled back and forth and was late for work! I hope I don't regret it. I know if I cancel, the points go into holding and I will pretty much lose them (my use year is June). I waitlisted the other 2 days individually and will keep checking the website.

AM I CRAZY for doing it this way? I just really want to get away especially with 3-7" of snow forecast for later today.

I need some PIXIE DUST! (I've already wished on a star...the song says my wish will come true.....)
You are NOT crazy! We decided Dec. 27 to take a big detour to WDW when we were taking our son back to college the next week, starting Jan. 2. ( University ofmAlabama from North Texas) We used Marriott points to get 4 nights at the Springhill Suites near dd. We checked DVC for fun. All booked up. in the next few days we checked online a lot. Got 2nights not,consecutive atVWL. Took it. Kept checking and calling. Saw the 2 nights we needed online and almost choked. Husband panicked and dropped phone (funny because he is always calm). We ended up with all nights DVC and a great getaway. Even got to eat in belle's castle, LE CELLIER, 50's prime time, and whispering canyon. Teens thought the trip,was awesome. It was! Wishing you pixie dust!

I'm at work today and decided to peek at the DVC site. I looked this morning and it was still the same---still waitlisted for Thursday. I peeked again a few minutes ago AND..... THE WAITLIST FOR THURSDAY CAME THROUGH!!!!!

In my heart I knew it would, but my head was getting nervous! If you remember I took a chance and booked Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday and waitlisted Monday and Thursday. So glad I took a gamble! We now have 5 consecutive days at SSR. Thanks for everyone's pixie dust. Just a few weeks and we'll be "Home"......aah....makes getting through the work day so much easier!

Well isn't that just the best news! So happy for you! I am such a sucker for a happy ending. Have a blast on your trip. It was obviously meant to be.

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
