It's worse than friday...Its Thursday. I think this is probably one of the hardest to get. The cash room is killing me...but I don't want to change rooms or resorts.

If you just have one night on a wait list, I think you will have a very good chance of it filling. I also agree with other posters, if you can get a cash reservation to fill in the gap that would be great. Hopefully you won't have to move for just one night. That would be a PITA.

Good luck!
Add me to the list of MOs missing a date by using the two UY. Luckily, my missing date came through on the WL within a week. Whew!

Good luck on getting your WL fulfilled!

I had 6 UY until mid 2017 and then sold one. I am actually missing the flexibly of that UY! That said, I have never under booked, but once I double booked! That was easier to drop vs. your issue. Hopefully, your waitlist will come through. I would book the cash night now in case and cancel later. It may not be available as time goes on. Just a suggestion.

Congratulations. My Cheap Butt would not have allowed me to do that $1000 room...

Do you keep a large bottle of Excedrin next to the 5-6 UY Spreadsheet?

(I have 2 Memberships with all same UY contracts except for yearly different UY transfers into each membership and I can't even remember without my index card which membership I transferred into). Course I'm old.

I am one that wishes I had never done two Use Years. It is just a pain to keep up with. I am looking for a small resale, and the very first thing I look at is Use Year. If it isn't the right one, I don't read any further, no matter what the deal is.
