    I am on a waitlist for Oct. 10-17 for a 2-bedroom and was curious who else out there is playing the waiting game? Have you been relieved, or given up? Let us know, we're dying to know. ::yes:: ::yes::

    If dominos would fall into place I can help others on the waitlist. I have a two bedroom and a studio for Oct 15-19 and on the waitlist for a Grand Villa to replace these. Last time I talked to them the Grand Villa was available for the first two nights but not the rest - that's no surpise.

    I got my waitlist to come through for OKW for Oct 10th a week or so ago for a 1 BR. We're going from Oct 9 -14th. But then I found out that VWL had two of those days 12-14th open for a 1BR so I took those and am waitlisted for the other 3 nights. Well one night just came through, the 11th at VWL and now I'm waiting on the other two. I'm thinking probably we'll just end up at OKW for two nights and then switch halfway through, but I still have 31 days and the next few days are the cuttoff for cancellations, etc, so wish me luck! :)

    Fingers crossed that we can reschedule our Labor Day trip to Oct 14 - 18. Our first choice is a BWV 1BR, but we'll take anything.

    If the wait list doesn't come through for us, we won't make our first trip home until summer 2006.

    Still waiting on a studio at BWV for 6 & 7th Oct.

    We have a standard view at the moment but have requested a boardwalk preferred view, so at least if we don't get it we are still in the resort we want to be in which is a bonus.

    Anyone else called MS yesterday or today. Tried to confirm the request at the 31 day window but the message states that MS is closed until thursday as they are trying to deal with immediate accommodation problems for people affected by Frances...what a nightmare for everyone affected by the storm.

    Fingers crossed that Ivan by-passes florida.

    We had a cruise chartered out from under us, resulting in a change to a different cruise and a switch in our BWV reservation. I DID have a Boardwalk view 2 bedroom for our dates. Now have a preferred view only for October 28-November 1st.

    MS did put us on the priority waitlist, which is supposed to mean the very first Boardwalk view 2 bedroom that opens up on those dates is ours, but so far no luck. I'm hoping at that 31 day window some magic will happen!

    We were on the waitlist for October 24, 25, and 26th for a studio at BCV to complete a seven night stay ending on October 31. We stayed on the waitlist (day by day) for about two weeks and it cleared about three weeks ago. Yeah! We start our glorious nine-night stay with a two night try at Pop Century on October 22 (at $38 per night, who can resist?) and end on Halloween at home at BCV.

    You never know what will turn up...I did call on a regular basis to check on the waitlist and MS never seemed to mind.

    Only part of our wait list came through so since we were at the 31 day mark, we changed to OKW since that was available for all of our nights. We will not change our travel plans October again as long as I can help it!!!

    I have had a BWV Std view studio waitlist since the 10 month mark for some guests (who have a Pfd pool/garden view currently). It's an 8 night stay and we've gotten the last 3 nights Std view, but Hallowe'en night has remained stubbornly unavailable and it's right in the middle of their stay :(.

    Now I noted with interest that the remaining Std view nights we are seeking were available for rent on the Rent/Trade board! :mad: I wise-cracked that I'd send the OP $10 to cancel the ressie so the rest of my waitlist could come thru, but I shouldn't have (under board rules) and my inappropriate reply was justifiably removed. We won't be making that mistake again :guilty:. I'm still hoping these friends can get the Std view for the whole time so they don't have to move midway thru their trip, but I am not holding out much hope.


    Looks like Brer Rabbit is in the same timespan as we are. So If we end up with the Std view, we'd be releasing the Pfd view for our rabbit friends perhaps.
    :D
