Question Chances of waitlist coming through for BWV Studio during IF&WF?

We were hoping to be able to stay in a studio at BWV for the first 5 nights of our November trip for the IF&WF. We reached the 7 month window for our first night last Thursday and have been phoning daily without success. There are no studios available at either BWV or BCV for our dates. At the moment, we have opted to waitlist standard, preferred and b/v at BWV, as well as BCV. What are the chances of anything coming through during the IF&WF? At the moment there are one-beds (preferred view) available at BWV, so we're wondering whether to bite the bullet and go for that. Our preferred option would be a studio and it's frustrating to have to use points for a one-bed when we don't actually want one, but if there's absolutely no chance that the waitlist will come through, we'd rather have something at an Epcot resort than nothing at all.

If I can get in at VWL Deb - I will be giving up my BWV Studio - I tried to swap the first 9 days of our trip to BCV without success too.

I am beginning to think that it is getting more 'buy where you want to stay' to get the 11 month advantage.

I guess it's a bit of a lottery Deb, but we've always been exceptionally lucky with the wait list, even getting Hilton Head in August.
I'd hang in there for a while to see what happens.

If you're prepared to bite the bullet ad take a 1 bed if you can't get a studio and if you wouldn't have to borrow points to do it, you could reserve the 1 bed now so that you will be safe knowing you have that secured if the waitlist doesn't work.

I don't think there's any way of telling what your chances might be - it's all the luck of the draw - who already has those studios, and what do they plan to do with them?!

Good luck
