I had booked a 1-bedroom at VGC the weekend of MouseAdventure (Sept. 24th) so I could spend that evening with some friends who are playing the next day. Then it turned out a bunch of friends were going to be there that weekend so I wanted to add Friday night--no go! I waitlisted several weeks ago for Friday night and got the word yesterday (via email) that my waitlist request was filled! So happy!

Awesome TC!! We wait listed it too for MA weekend, but if it doesnt happen it wont be a total bummer. I can use the "saved" points for our Spring 2012 WDW trip. Im hoping to get a studio with a Theme Park view at BLT. :-)

I called today and the Sat was available in a 1BR. So, we have the 13th in a studio and the 15th in a 1BR right now. I am wait listed for a studio for the 14/15 and a for a 1BR for the 13/14. I am considering changing them to just wait for either one on the 14th, thinking I will have a better shot of getting the one day vs the 2, since I have been waiting for about 2 months now with no luck, except for picking up a day here and there when I call to check on the individual days.

Update- my waitlist came through a while ago so we had Thurs in a studio and Fri and Sat in a 1BR. I then waited for the 1BR up until 7 days, but no luck. So, I remember someone saying the called every day the week of and lucked out, so I figured I'd try that. DH said, why don't you ask for a 2BR too since we have the points (no "big" trip for a few years with the baby coming). So, I called this morning (Sun). The CM said no on the 1BR, but put me on hold to "look further" into the 2BR. I thought that sounded promising. He came back and sure enough, we have a 2BR booked for the first night! It is way more than we need, but I think we will all sleep better being in separate rooms.

I am wondering if they had one in cash inventory that they released for points or something, since he had to look into it. I know the hotel portion is booked solid those days, so maybe opening up the studio helps with any oversold situation in the hotel? Either way, I am happy and excited for out first DVC stay in 4 days!
