Whoohoo! My waitlist came through...my waitlist came through! I am so excited!

I called today to change some things with ME and I happened to ask if there was any availability for a cash ressie for VWL on 12/30, because I have no reservation for that day of our holiday trip! As much as I didn't want to have to pay out of a pocket, I thought I better do it, so we wouldn't be homeless for a day a DW! Lol She (DVC MS) said, "Let me see if there are any discounted rates for you...Oh look! There is a studio available on points! I see you have a waitlist here!" Yahtzee! I couldn't believe it! I have another waitlist for the next day, so we won't have to move 3 times, but at least I have a place for all of our nights now! What a relief!

Sending some for others!

The friend I'm bringing with me on this trip has never been to WDW before, so I thought shooting for CL might be a nice surprise for him. I've wait-listed into a club-level 1br before (twice), but I'm under the impression that the studios are in far more demand.
So, I just added a second wait-list to this trip. Original (and still back-up) plan is spending the first 3 nights, Jan. 24-27, in a studio at OKW, but my traveling companion expressed an interest in being near MK for some of the time, so now I'm on a waitlist for BLT lakeview for those dates. Here's hoping one waitlist or the other comes through.

VACATION RULE #3
Touring plans are like boyfriends. They’re useful and comforting to have around, and they can often make the difference between the day being a disaster or a success, but you have to be willing to ditch them if they’re not making you happy.

'86: one day at Epcot with family; fall '04:5-day Pop All Hallows/F&WF; Jan/Feb '08: 7-day unintended "farewell to Pop Century" trip. (OMG we bought DVC!!); May '08: 4-day Grand Californian; Nov '08: 4-day F&WF trip to BCV (and a Dream Squad member changed my life); Jan/Feb '10: 5 days @ BWV + 3 days @ AKV club; Dec '10: solstice trip, 3 days AKV Jambo + 3 days BWV; Jan '12: Wow, I'm the first to graduate from my Jewelry Design Program! 4 days BLT, 4 days AKV-CL; Jan '13: 3 days BLT, 4 days AKV-Jambo

I'm joining in....We are waitlisted for BCV dedicated 2 bedroom w/queen beds for Sept 29 to Oct 6. If it doesn't come through I guess we will just have to be satisfied with BLT (heavy sigh).
Just added Oct 6, 9, 10, 11 at SSR in a studio. Waitlisted for Oct 7 and 8. I'm going to book Pop for those nights cash just in case.
Then if SSR waitlist comes through I may waitlist AKV for those 6 nights.

I think this waitlist stuff might become as addictive as add-on-itis.

UPDATE: Called MS this morning when I saw on-line that Oct 8 was available. Booked it and now all I need is the 7th to come through.

UPDATE TO THE UPDATE: Called MS again this morning to add ME and was told our waitlist for Oct 7 had come through. Yay!!

Wait listed for Kidani and Jambo House in October

Does anyone know if when someone cancels online the inventory immediately shows up? I keep checking for mid October either Kidani or Jambo House for a 1 or 2 BDV Savannah view. I got two of my 4 nights last week by chance. Just wondered if it is worth checking in the evening or inventory only posts next day after Member Services reviews.

I have a 2 BR waitlisted at OKW for Jan 30 - 31. We are there for 3 days before and 4 days after. Those 2 nights we are in 2 Studios at SSR. I have been told my chances are pretty slim. I still live in hope.

We are in a 2BR LO at SSR for 1/1 - 1/7.

I have a WL for THV for the same dates. 3 of the days are available, but my family is not willing to move. I think I could have done it if they had let me piecemeal it, but they were adamant about not moving, so I just stalk the website 3-4 times per day.

I also have a WL for a 2BR at OKW because of the larger space, but at least we do have someplace to stay.

The waitlist for BLT came through!!! My friend will be thrilled to be that close to MK for part of the trip.

Still not holding my breath for the AKL-cl one though.

Add us to the wait list support group ...
November 22 till the 25th at BLT one bedroom ...
It is a LONG shot I know but one can hope !!!!

We are booked in two rooms at pop for the three nights for now but would like to use our dvc points and stay close to the MK.
We will be taking our Great, Great Aunt whom lives with us ... She has never been on vacation EVER, never been on a commercial flight and of course has never been to Disney. She worked all her life in a machine shop giving away everything she had to those that had nothing (that is why she is with us now at the age of 91.). She never had any kids but loved to watched every Disney event that was aired on television not to mention look at all our Disney family photos.

What a nice story. I sure hope your WL for BLT comes thru. It would be extra special to be so close to MK. Let us know how things go.

What a great woman! I hope your WL comes through.

I had posted that our WL for AKV came through. We have a 2 bdrm st. view at Jambo and had 2 WL for a st. view at Kidani. I cancelled our lock off. I love the master bath at Kidani, but we will only switch if we can get a dedicated 2 bdrm. We'll see what happens. I'm happy with both, as we have never stayed this long before - 5 nights VWL and then off to relax at AKV for another 4 nights. It can't get here fast enough!
