DVCNews Debates: Unlikely Waitlist

DVCNews DebatesThe waitlist process for Disney Vacation Club accommodations can be a very useful tool.  Even though a specific resort or villa type is fully booked, DVC maintains a waiting list to aid members as cancellations occur. However, the popularity of certain resorts and room types leaves some waitlist requests rather difficult to fill--particularly for longer trip lengths or when trying to book on short notice.

What is the most unlikely waitlist request you've ever had filled by DVC?

Not sure how unlikely it was, but we waitlisted Aulani for specific dates and got it.

Back when BWV was impossible to get at the 7 month mark as the BWV owners never switched to another resort, we got a wait list during food and wine. But truthfully we rarely do wait lists.

We went on the wait list for a grand villa at Old Key West in early December a few years back. It finally came through just a few months before our check-in date, and I was thrilled!

That year, I really wanted a GV for our group, but the amount of points required gave me serious sticker shock. The only "reasonable" grand villa was the one at OKW. I never had a desire to stay there before, but the lower points were a big draw. I absolutely fell in love with OKW during that trip -- never realized how great it was before that.

I have waitlisted several times in the past. Sadly, I have no life (lol) and checked my email daily, until it never showed up. Then that is when the magic hits. When I didn't check is when they came through. I was always scared that it would never come through and scared to use this valuable tool. I will never be scared again!
