Can someone who’s well versed in DVC explain the waitlist to me?
I had points (from March) that we didn’t get to use. Our rental contact graciously is trying to re-use those points for us this coming March. Of course, things have changed, so I don’t want to stay at the same place we’d booked last year (partially Poly)
So, I was hoping she could book BCV. However, it wasn’t fully available at 7 months, when she want to book. (It doesn’t help that she was massively affected by the derecho at the same time she was trying to do this for us). We discussed it and she booked BWV instead, for the same 4 nights, with a waitlist for BCV.
After seeing @DumboRunner’s pictures, I really would rather be at BCV. So, what hopes can I have that the waitlist will come through? How does it work? Does someone at Disney reassign rooms if something opens up? I assume it just happens when someone cancels their reservation?
