In May, we’re giving a couple nights to our two sons (and their wives) with some “leftover” DVC points we have. In one case, my oldest son wanted to stay at SSR, so booking there was no problem. For my second son, they preferred Boardwalk if possible. So, I booked him at SSR until the 7 month mark came, when I would try to pounce on something.
Well. I miscounted. I was thinking November was going to be 7 months out. But…well…it’s not. October was…and I missed the 7 month mark. Sure enough, everything at Boardwalk is now waitlist only.
So, this leads to my question. I did waitlist Boardwalk at the Garden/Pool view rooms (since that seems to be what pops up most often with availability). But…can I also create a waitlist at Boardwalk for both Boardwalk view and Standard view? Can I have multiple wait lists for the same resort, but different room categories? Or just one?
There didn’t appear to be a way to waitlist “anything available”.
This is for a single night. (In the end, it is no big deal if they wind up at SSR…just trying to get their preferred location if at all possible.)
Hehe. Technically we are borrowing these.leftover points. In January 2024, we figured out how many points we need for our pre-cruise days at WDW. This would leave enough point that, even if we banked them we wouldn’t be able to use before the next trip after that. So, we thought why not let our kids use them for a chance to brainwash them into into loving Disney…err, I mean, experience staying on site in a Deluxe resort at Disney.
