    I just booked up last week at the BW (well, bar one day that I'm waitlisted for) for <b>Christmas</b> week.

    I had to ring on a day by day basis naturally, but I expected my chances to be slim considering it's the busiest time of the year (in the past, they've actually held lotteries for those dates because they're so much in demand) and expected to be on the waitlist at the very minimum.

    However, every day I got the day I wanted no problem except for the 23rd for some reason (you'd think if the 23rd was gone, so would the 24th & 25th :confused: ) and that was because of the wretched Bank Holiday last Monday - because MS was closed for 3 days, when I rang up, all the lines were engaged - by the time I got through, the 23rd had already gone :( Atleast I'll be near the top of the waitlist :)

    But hey ho! I got 7 out of 8 nights on my first try (and not getting the 8th day was really just bad luck) and who knows...maybe my waitlist has already come through and my confirmation is in the mail already!

    Just goes to show though, that there is <i>always</i> hope at the 7 month window :)

    Penny,
    Here's hoping you get to the top of the list!

    BTW, if you are talking about last Monday here in the States, that was Memorial Day. (I am not trying to be rude or slam you or anything, I didn't know if you knew what holiday we celebrated that day).

    Hi Lisa :)

    Yes, it was a Bank Holiday here too (though it's not Memorial Day for us) - it did mean however that with the extra day they were shut, there was obviously more people ringing at once at 9am on Tuesday - all the previous days I'd gotten through straight away, that day I must have had to re-dial a good 20 times before I could even get into the 'on hold' bit.

    That's all I meant by it being wretched - no offence meant to the actual reason for the Bank Holiday!

    LOL!! I wondered what you were talking about!

    I just wasn't thinking you were having a bank holiday too!

    Good luck!

    Woohoo! I rang up today to find out the status and my waitlist had already come through - all in all a relatively pain free experience for booking Christmas week - I'm well chuffed :)
