Just before 5:30 I called MS and was able to make a reservation for 6 nts in a studio at VWL beginning Dec. 30th. To make a long story short, I had talked to MS about 10 minutes before. We will actually be in WDW from 12/28 to 1/5, but none of the scenarios I requested were available. Then she told me about the availability at VWL for 6 of the 8 nights I was requesting. I quickly called my wife at work to check with her and called back MS. I gave the dates to the gentleman who took my call and he told me that he knew that New Year's Eve was completely booked, but he would check the other dates for me. I said something to the effect of "really, I just checked and it was available, I guess I should have made the ressie before". He said "just now? Well let me check..." Turns out, there was availability, so VWL, here we come! He told me he felt bad because he just told another member that New Year's Eve was completely sold-out. This will be our first stay at VWL and can't wait. I understand the Christmas decorations are beautiful. On Monday, my wife will call back to get on the wait list for Dec 28 & 29th. In the meantime, we have a ressie at Pop Century for those 2 days in case the waitlist doesn't come through.
