update 1/1/13: Checked online and room was available. I booked it myself. Waitlist runs overnight (or so I hear) so I don't know if I'd have gotten it automatically tonite or if someone else would have nabbed it, or if someone else was on the waitlist. ============================================== I have a waitlist in for the first day of our trip, a Thursday night in April, for a standard view 1-br at BLT. I got the very last Friday night room (the CM was rushing to book it because she saw it was the last one but had to process a sale for 4 points first). I was going to wait on our airline tickets, but those were selling out fast (at the lower rates) so I bought them going out Thursday. At some point, I'll have to decide whether to switch the whole thing to a lake view (before those book up) and buy the extra points. We are already switching resorts on day 5 to BCV, so I don't want to do it again just for 1 night. I'd rather switch all the nights at BLT so as to stay in the same room. I'm just not sure how long to wait for this waitlist. I do check everyday manually, just in case. Do you think more people are likely to cancel closer to spring? Someone doesn't get the tax return they were hoping for, christmas bonus wasn't good, etc.
