Ok, so I really need a DVC waitlist reality check…sure, we all want to be optimistic and, sure, “ya never know…” blah blah blah…
but seriously. What is the likelikhood of a waitlist becoming reality?
Here is my situation:
We are booked at AKV, Kidani Village in a savannah view studio (oops…I’m sorry, “deluxe studio”:happy:), from December 4-11, which was booked right at the 11 month mark, as AKV is our home resort. We are waitlisted for the same dates in a MK view studio at BLT, and a studio at VWL. Now, I’m pretty sure that we won’t get the BLT waitlist, but is it a REAL possibility that we’ll get VWL? I called to book either BLT or VWL right on the 7 month mark, but there was NO availability. I have owned DVC for a few years, but have never done the waitlist thing, so it’s a new experience.
(just a side rant about the fact that is is the “low” season in DVC terms, and there is still no availability? BLT is understandable, but WL?? It’s not even that new. The cast member said that there was virutally NO availability for a studio at any DVC resort during that time-except for saratoga. If that is the “low” season, I’d hate to see high season. AND, it’s not even like I waited until the last minute. I was right on top of it at the 7 month mark. Again, I understand it’s December, and because it’s the low season, it will get booked by DVC members, BUT, it’s considered low FOR DVC members…I mean, if all the rooms are booked, wouldn’t that make it high season?? Ok, rant over)
Sooo…should we just resign ourselves to our stay at Kidani (which is beautiful, mind you…we love it there, but are really dying to try BLT and/or WVL), or, should we hold out hope that our waitlist may come true??
I’d love to hear personal experiences, not just the “well, ya never know, anything is possible, etc.” (I heard that from the DVC rep already…Not to be too cynical or anything :pirate::laugh:)
Thanks for honest feedback!
