Default Walking clarification

We are new owners to BWV and want to stay standard view 2 bedroom next Thanksgiving. Not sure if walking is needed or not, but better safe than sorry, right. Why is there a need to walk the reservation daily or can it be done more infrequently (the 3rd day, then the 3rd day after that? or some other variation)?

You do not need to call everyday. If you have the day in hand you can call 3rd or 4th day or even 6th day

Even though Thanksgiving week is highly popular, I don't think it will be a problem getting your reservation.

As your day of booking the room approaches, I would "test" walk a reservation to see what is available. I would would walk the first night, and again check to see availability to see if day to day walking is required or not. If rooms are not booking out, you can call every couple days to add more nights.

If it was me and I really wanted the room, I would still call every day......just to be sure.

The rooms are being taken daily completely by 5 minutes after 8am, at least the studios, and since there are no dedicated 2 bedrooms, it's as if I'm trying to get a studio. Once in a while a day is released, but few and far between. Is this what you mean by checking availability?
