Default wOOt - got off the waitlist for a weekend stay at BCV (Apr 28)

We had some leftover points and at the beginning of Feb decided to book a stay April 28-May 1 as a Mother's Day present for my wife. Given F&G at Epcot we were hoping to stay at BCV or BWV. After a month of waiting - we're in! Good way to start the week.

T minus 54 days!

Neat! I would love to see some photos from EPCOT at that time! Post some on the forum once you get back, if you think of it.

Congrats on the waitlist! You will have a great time.

Today must have been a good day for waitlists. My DD got the email that theirs came through for the Poly in early June.

Congrats! I hope to one day get off of ANY wait list that I start. I'm batting .000 right now!

you doing one day at a time?

I've had really good luck thus far.

I've picked up 2 weeks at BWV in a standard room for F&W (during 11 month home resort), VGC 2BR in May (also got a studio for a couple nights but cancelled it since the 2BR came in), BCV 1BR during F&W 3 months out for 1 night, and a few others I can't remember right now.

Oddly enough -- the only waitlist I haven't hit is Dec 2018 for VGF for the last two days of my stay. I got the first 5, but haven't been able to pick up Th/F night.

I do have it wait listed for just the one night. I currently have a P/G view 1-bedroom booked during MM in the fall at HS. I have a boardwalk view 1-bedroom and a 2-bedroom standard wait listed. The 2-bedroom P/G or BWV are too many points. The 2-bedroom standard is only 2 points more than the 1-bedroom P/G I currently have booked. We will see if either one comes in...
