    You'll need to clarify this question. You will never* end up at a resort that you did not book.

    (*It has happened, but it was under extraneous circumstances and had nothing to do with waitlisting.)

    Just received an email that my waitlist came through for VGC at end of April. Yay! This is my son's Christmas present.

    Woohoo! That's great:goodvibes

    I'm joining now as we have added a waitlist to one of our trips. One night needed. Keeping our fingers crossed.

    We're waitlisted for VWL for our upcoming trip, our first three nights, Dec 12-15th in a 1BR. Right now we have BWV 1BR garden/pool view for first three nights, then VWL 1BR Dec 15th-21st. We were going to have to move twice, as our first night at BWV was for a boardwalk view, and our next two nights pool/garden, so I waitlisted first night, which came through about a week ago. I seriously doubt our VWL waitlist will come through, as we're only 2 1/2 weeks out now, but one can hope! :)

    My waitlist expired Thursday night, and yesterday morning I logged on to see all three nights were available at Wilderness in a 1BR. I hurried up and called MS, and by the time she checked, Friday night was gone, with only Wednesday and Thursday available. Ugh. So I'm missing one night, Friday the 14th. Oh well. Looks like Boardwalk it is for the first three nights, then Wilderness. Guess I shouldn't complain. Lucky to have what I do. I'm going to check up until MS closes Tuesday night though! Three more sleeps after tonight!!! :)

    Keep checking several times a day! We leave tomorrow for BLT for 4 nights. A week ago, we had 4 nights at SSR (wait lists never came through for BLT). In the past week, we've changed resorts several times....2 nights at SSR and 2 at BLT...then 2 at VWL and 2 at BLT....then 1 at VWL and 3 at BLT....then yesterday, we snagged that last night at BLT! Phew!!! What a week!! But we got what we wanted :) Good luck!!

    Oh no! But yes, at least you have those nights. I guess people still cancel at the last minute so keep checking. You never know. :)

    We're booked at AKV Kidani for four nights (12/23-12/27), but I've been reading some reviews and decided to waitlist Jambo for that time period - just to see.

    I've not stayed at either one (in fact, this is our first stay as DVC members) but I understand that Jambo is closer to most of the amenities.

    I don't have much hope that it will come through, and it is going to cancel itself in a few days anyways, but we'll see. I'm thrilled to be staying at either one!

    We are waitlisted for Grand Californian for June...I'm totally freaking out about it. Has anyone else WL for there? I'm not sure at what point I should just give up the dream. I was literally on 2 days after the 7 month window, and NOTHING was available...I'll sleep anywhere. ugh

    Another frequent waitlister here...ok maybe not frequent but I've definitely had a few of them in my history. Some successful and some not so much.

    I am hopeful that I'll win this game of Resort Waitlist Roulette but the problem is...I'm not sure which waitlist I'd rather win??? :rotfl2:

    Currently booked for four nights at OKW in January...slow season, so I'm hopeful for lots of cancellations and changes. I check almost daily on availability at other resorts. We have 7 of us, and it would be nice to get a 2BR but I'm also open to doing a 1BR and Studio or 2 studios somewhere, but you can't do that kind of waitlist easily or online. So instead I check often to see what's out there.

    So right now we are waitlisted for a 2BR Standard View at Kidani AND/OR a 2BR Standard View at Boardwalk. This morning I noticed a 1BR Standard View at Kidani was open for all 4 nights...but no studios at any view level for those same four nights and 2 1BRs would be more points than I'd want to part with right now.

    There was also a 1BR Std View open at Boardwalk...for Fri and Sun night but not Sat or Mon night. So I'm hopeful that maybe that will open up.

    I wish I knew my chances of getting any of these. I feel pretty good that we might get one of the two waitlists sometime in the next four weeks but if not we are okay with OKW! :goodvibes

    A few days ago. I think it was the same day the waitlist was set to expire (7 days out).

    I was actually logging in to do my online check-in and noticed that it said Jambo instead of Kidani. I didn't get an email or anything.

    Another quick question...what type of accomodations were you waitlisting? Maybe I missed it. I just wonder if waitlists are easier for the 1BR or Studios than a 2BR like we are looking for right now. :confused3

    I don't think I ever posted that - these were studios.
