Thanksgiving waitlist

Anyone want to join me in hoping?

My first Thanksgiving at the world...we're waitlisted at BCV for a 2BR of any kind, but just for Thanksgiving and the day before.

I'm hoping once the 7 month window comes up here in a couple weeks that there will be some movement.

We are having are reservations at AKL for the days we want...The Wednesday before Thanksgiving through the Sunday after...We really want to stay at the VWL...We are hoping to get a 2-beroom when our 7 month date comes (which is April 24)...If not, we will go on the waitlist for VWL and keep our AKL...Wish us luck!

Good luck getting what you want

Good luck! Send some my way, too!

I'm hoping that there may be other people who are trying to switch resorts or try BLT or AKV this year and something will open up.

I have been thinking about going during Thanksgiving too. I had a thread going about Christmas, and everyone told me it`s very crowded then. Have you been at Thanksgiving? I hear the Christmas decorations are up by then. Is it as crowded?

I've never been at Thanksgiving. This would be our first time.

My understanding is that it gets crowded the closer you get to Thanksgiving Day and into that weekend. BUT that it's not like Christmas or Easter week crowds.

I'm missing Nov 25 and 26 on my reservation, so I'm going to start calling this week to see if I can pick up one or the other of those days if the waitlist doesn't pick them both up at once.

It seems to be just as crowded at Thanksgiving as it is at Christmas.

Would you say the entire Thanksgiving Week is as crowded as the entire Christmas week?

Good luck getting what you want
I have a question for you. I currently have a ressie for SSR for a 2bed from 11/21 thru 11/27. We really want to try and switch it over to AKL Kidani at the 7-month mark later this month.

But, are you saying that you are already waitlisted at AKL for 2 bed? If so, we won't have a chance to move.........

Telcogirl--

I wouldn't worry too much yet. There are 2BR units in both Kidani and Jambo. We don't know what that poster was on the WL for.

Regardless, I think we'll see some movement as people want to try new resorts, particularly AKV and BLT.

This is what I have heard consistently.

I agree with you, it starts crowding up on Wednesday. That's why we head in the Friday b4 and bug out on Black Friday.

I've got a SSR GV booked for this yr.

Well, I'm hoping that the next few days might see a bit of movement as it will be 7 months out from Nov 25, the day before Thanksgiving. That means that people who want to stay that week or so can start switching around.

Crossing my fingers for some good luck!
