Wow December is busy for DVC! Waitlists, waitlists, waitlists.

I'm really excited for our upcoming Dec trip. We're going for 5 nights, and are staying in 4 different rooms across 3 resorts. I hope it's not too crazy checking in and out almost every day...but there is nothing available the first week of December!! I just hope one of my waitlists comes through!

Welcome to the madness that is December with DVC! Since points are low at this time of year, it's very busy. We learned about this last year, and were lucky to have our waitlist come through. Hope yours does too!

Same with us! We are checking in Dec. 30th & staying 5 nights, 2 different resorts & 4 different reservation numbers. I'm starting to lose hope that my waitlists will ever come through. This should be fun!

Do NOT give up hope. We have a reservation for Dec. 1 - 8 that we may have to cancel but we won't know for a month or so. Pixie dust happens!

We're in the same boat - we're there from Dec. 13-16, then added a night yesterday for the 17th - now we have 3 nights at SSR and have to move to OKW the last day - hope our waitlist for OKW comes through so we don't have to move at all and we all have a bed to sleep in instead of a pullout

We're wanting to stay in a studio at SSR (or OKW) Dec. 4-13 but there is nothing. We're on waitlist as well for either one.

We're taking our 7 month old to Disney for the first time and really hoped we could be in a nice quiet DVC resort, but for now it's All-Star Movies (with the good 'ol pop warner kids)

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE pass some pixie dust our way! We want a DVC room for this trip so bad.

Tell me about it! I had to wait till very recently to book us the week before Christmas (20-23 Oct) and EVERYTHING seems gone! We managed to snag an SSR 1-BR for our 3 nights, but that was literally the last choice.

We're WLed for a Studio Std View at BLT and BWV, but I'm not sure if I should hold out hope or not.

waiting for Dec1-5

I've been on the wait list since July for the first week of Dec. I have 3 resorts for 4 nights. I feel bad for anyone who has to cancel their trip, I know I always look forward to my Disney trips. I wonder if Maelstrom's cancel will fill my waitlist for BCV or VWL.

This has me a little scared! I'm waiting on my ROFR. And my plan is to go early December starting next year. Are you folks posting here people who tried to book December 2009 recently? In other words, these are "last minute" reservations, not ones you tried to get 7 or 11 months out? Thanks.

I called about two weeks ago and booked AKL studio for Dec. 24th -17th for my BIL,
I also had a choice between, SSR and can you believe this one VWL. I was also told that it would be easier booking 1 bedrooms because they had plenty of available in almost all the dvc resorts.

if you book at 11 months out, waitlisting is not so much of an issue. but december is a very busy season for DVC. it's not a good idea to wait too long to try to book a december stay.

I called at exactly 9am EST 7 months out & I was only able to get 2 out of the 5 nights I wanted at BLT. I have since managed to add 2 more nights, but Jan. 1st is a SV & the rest are LV. I'm on the waitlist for a 1BR LV on the 1st & also Dec. 31st, but we booked Allstars as a back up & that's probably where we'll be. You might have better luck for early Dec.

That may be true for the middle of Dec., but there have been no 1BRs at the end of Dec/beginning of Jan at any resorts since 7 months out.
