I can't believe how well the wait list worked. Last week I was really bummed out because we couldn't get our 1 bdrm--preferred view for BWV for Oct 21-27th. Last year I called at the 11-month window and of course had no problem. We had decided we'd skip this year since I had a baby just after Christmas, but of course, the Disney spirit got the best of us and we decided to go for it. When we called last week we couldn't get the week we wanted. I booked the BCV instead but we weren't sure about that since we love the Boardwalk Villas. I didn't really know how the wait list worked until I posted here last week. Thank you everyone who helped me. I went on the wait list last Friday and yesterday (Tuesday) when I called to complete my Beach Club reservation I was told that my wait list matched already! I am so thrilled. I guess the 7-month window for those dates just passed and perhaps some people cancelled boardwalk reservations to get other properties. Whatever the reason--I'm ecstatic--can't wait to go "home" again!!!
