Default Room Availability

This will be our first trip back to Disney since before Covid. We usually take an early flight in and have been lucky in the past with our room being ready. It will also be our first time staying at BWV. I know with staffing shortages it is taking longer to turnover rooms. I was just wondering what other's experiences have been having rooms ready prior to official check in time at BWV?

Pretty bad even pre-covid. I only had my room ready once by 4pm. One time we had the notification at 4pm and they were still cleaning. Though I had a nasty check in person who got mad when I asked for first available and intentionally didn't give it to us (long story, but kind CMs after 3pm helped us get a room).

Unfortunately out of all my resort stays, BWV tends to be the one that gets us in our room later than sooner. But, the great location makes up for it as you can drop everything off at bell services and stroll to Epcot or Hollywood Studios while you are waiting. (AKV Jambo has been the best consistency for early entrance to our room.)

We checked into BWV last Sunday and didn’t get the room ready text til nearly 5:00 pm. I was getting pretty testy until I realized it was just down the hall from our DD’s room. Can’t be angry went they gave us exactly our specific request.

Hope you don’t have too long to wait for your room.

Even pre-covid we tend to average the 'room ready' text somewhere between 2:30 and 3:30. It's never been after 4, but also never early in the day. No complaints - we expect it.

AKL has consistently been the earliest check in for us, with BRV a pretty close second. BWV has been hit or miss, but weíve probably had slightly more early check ins than late. My latest check in ever was PVB. Well after 5pm before I got my room assigned. And I didnít have any special requests. But Iíve only stayed there once, so thatís purely anecdotal.

No idea why, but we've had better luck on the BW Inn side with both room ready time and location requests.
