    So I am planning a trip for Nov 2019. I have booked VBR, OKW so far. At this time there is NO AVAILABILITY in any resort from 6th to 10th Nov!!!!!!
    If I have to pay to stay offsite when I have the points available I am not going to be happy.
    I have waitlisted some resorts - what do people think my chances of getting in somewhere are?


    I spoke to Member Services and they just said it's due to Star Wars opening, Food and Wine etc. and to waitlist.

    I really hope this isn't a sign of things to come!

    With Star Wars opening it will be a tough task to snag a room.

    It’s also a holiday (Veteran’s Day) weekend. It’s gonna be busy.

    Alas I fear it will a shape of things to come. We go at Christmas and own at AKL. I always book at 11 months out and change if need be (and where possible) at 7 months.

    November December are times when I personally would only ever book home resort they are always busy

    There will have been wait lists in since the 11 month window I wouldn't count on one coming through

    I can't always book at 11 months out due to work.
    I am fearing more and more that this is the shape of things to come as the only thing that has changed since I booked last time at 5 months out is that Star Wars will have opened. I always go at busy times when there are things to consider such as flower/garden, halloween, toy story opening, pandora opening, food/wine, marathon, holiday etc.
    I am really hoping it isn't going to be an ongoing problem as this is going to totally change my DVC opinion and mean that it will be pointless for me to own tbh.

    You can always book and cancel - better to have the room just in case.

    This morning a standard view studio at BWV was available for 3nt 5th-8th nov. The dates are gone now. So rooms do open up you just have be stalking the dates and WL'ing. When setting up a WL dont WL you entire trip as that would most likely get you nothing.

    Another thing to have in mind. When booking WDW from late sept to mid january you really need to book 11 months out otherwise there is a big risk that you get nothing.

    If it was me, I would setup a WL for two single days on top I would get a cash stay (if available so late in the game) If/when one of the single days matches I would setup a new WL again for on of the remaining days. Pick the days that is most likely to match.

    Furthermore I would WL at either SSR, OKW or AKV those are the largest resorts.

    Additionally I would stalk the RAT multiple times each day.
