Are waitlists strictly “first come first serve” for their stays or is there other factors involved?
I currently have a waitlist going for CC for a week, but even though I scooped up it up at the morning it became available, I still wasn’t fast enough and there was 1 day already “unavailable” right in the middle of the stay. (Cuz… of course it would be in the center of the stay)
That same week is now completely unavailable and I’m curious how Disney will divvy out the waitlist should that day I was missing become available (in relation to all the other people’s waitlist)? I’m guessing not everyone is trying for a simple “week” and instead did a bunch of “a day or 2” stays instead.
So for example, someone has a reservation for the following days (Same start, but ends on the day in question)
Even though I have 2 more days on my reservation, would I still get the priority (even if those other rooms might not be available) or would Short-Stay get the reservation, thus knocking me back on the waitlist more until all days all at once become available?
