    Argh I am kicking myself. I called yesterday and there was a 1br at BWV for 4/8 for 40 points (we have 41 points in holding to use up) but I waited and of course now it is gone.

    We are waitlisted for a studio for 4/8 and 4/9. Is anyone else waitlisted too?

    I have a 1 night waitlist for a BWV studio preferred view, for March 23rd. IT's for my DSis and a friend of hers. She has a room booked at Pop, just in case.
    Her DF didn't commit to coming for the night until maybe 2 weeks ago, I don't have much hope that it will come through.

    Good luck!

    We already have ressies for April 1-8 but wanted to extend a couple of days to use up these points in holding. Hope ours comes thru in time for us to switch our flights cheaply!

    I have been on the VB wait list for almost a month now. I need either a studio or an inn room for 4-14 to 4-16. Still hoping and praying.

    Since there are 3 types of studios at BWV and I can only waitlist for one, preferred because there are more of them, I wonder if I should be calling every day to see if that one day will come through. Would you call every day?

    We're wait listed at OKW for a one bedroom March 15-20. We like to try different resorts and with the main pool closure at SSR, we thought we'd like to give OKW a try. Doesn't look good.

    I would. Last May I was waitlisted for our December trip. I foolishly waited until 7 months out to book and couldn't get anything. :sad2: Our waitlist saw no movement between May and November. Nothing for a one bedroom or two bedroom at ANY resort!! In late November I started calling every day, sometimes several times a day, and was able to piece together a week long stay at BWV. :woohoo: I don't have a whole ton of faith in the waitlist and how it is handled.

    We're wait listed for a studio at either BCV or BWV 3/15-3/20...we have a one-bedroom, w/five in it (taking four college kids to celebrate DS' graduation)...I want that studio for me!

    This was pretty last-minute, tho...the last two kids didn't commit til about a month ago. We've already had huge luck in first getting all five days at OKW (2 1/2 months out) in a one-bedroom (at which point 3 of us were going), then the W/L coming thru so that our one-bedroom was near HH; and then a combination of phone calls and a W/L coming through to move the five days to a 1-BR at BCV. I won't complain if I don't get more luck in getting the studio when I recall that I got what I consider already stupendous luck in getting the five days at BCV --

    But I am calling every day, twice a day, because now that we're limited to two W/Ls I can't W/L all my options. Plus, not being able to W/L day-by-day reduces our W/L chances, too...so far, no movement of any kind, after two full weeks of twice-daily calls.

    Finally decided I really, really, really don't want to squeeze into the one-BR w/four college kids, so I went to reserve a room for cash...nothing at either BCV or BWV, or at BCI or BWI. So I got a room at the Dolphin. And I feel lucky to have gotten that! We've only been checking the Epcot area resorts, tho...we want to be able to walk between the two rooms...

    I'm still really happy w/how this trip is working out...we got very very lucky w/our ADRs, too...traveling w/4 college kids whose idea of "advance planning" is the day before made putting this trip together a huge challenge, especially since there's zero flexibility as to dates (it's their spring break). I'm feeling really fortunate that we did as well as we did!

    And I'll keep calling up til the day before we leave...but I'm not expecting any more luck...

    If you've got the time to call I would!! Now if it's gonna be a stress to find the time to call then maybe a few times a week. At least you'd know you gave it your all if nothing opens up.

    Over Christmas week, when DVC wasn't exactly on my mind, a one day waitlist for a savannah view studio in Kidani came through, I had one night standard view, so I've pretty much let the waitlist alone. However, today, I realized that there are 3 types of studios at BWV...and well, I should give calling a chance. Once a week or so, maybe I'll be lucky.

    I am w/l for one night, studio, March 16. I chose either SSR or OKW since they are the largest. I have not had luck with the w/l system in the past so I have little faith. Isn't that terrible? I just don't see how their system could possibly work. Wouldn't you like to be a fly on the wall?

    I am going to call at least once a day in hopes another resort opens us. It can't hurt. Either way, I have a room at All-Star Sports. My kids will love it but I will miss my DVC :( It also pains me to spend the $77! That could be our dinner money! FWIW, there was very slim pickings even at CRO. ASP, CSR, WL and BW available. BW was over $300/night with the AP rate. :scared1:

    Good luck everyone!

    We have reservations at SSR for March 29-April 3. I didn't know the main pool was closed? I thought I read that the renovations would be done by now?We are on a waitlist for OKW because the kids LOVED the main pool there last year, but so far nothing. We've only been on the waitlist for about a month though.

    The SSR pool will be closed March 9-30th so you can boat to OKW for the first few days and then High Rock Pool for your last few days. Sounds like fun and you'll be one of the firsts to swim in the refurbed pool!!

    Thank goodness. We arrive April 1st and DD10 loves to swim in that pool!

    I just called on a hunch and there was a studio at SSR for April 9th that I nabbed but still waitlisted for the 8th.

    Pixie dust that everyone's waitlist comes through!
