So, I keep checking the DVC website to monitor if there still remains 1-bedroom availability at BWV for the days of our trip ahead of the 7 month mark. It has been fairly stable each day, which gives me an inkling of hope that I’ll get something.
But anyhow, today, I noticed something weird. First, before, when I checked, the ONLY availability listed as a 1-bedroom Garden/Pool view room. But now, there is listed wide-open availability in the standard AND the PREFERRED room.
It is that second part that is confusing. BWV doesn’t have a “PREFERRED” category. They have a Standard, a Boardwalk-view, and a Garden/Pool view. Those last two categories are both preferred, but have never shown up that way when I search. They have always show up as either Boardwalk view or Garden/Pool view.
So…what happened? Why are BWVs now showing Preferred as category, but not Boardwalk-view or Garden/Pool view???
Do I chalk this up to Disney IT? Or did something actually change?
ETA: Nevermind…figured out the issue later in the thread.
