    Currently my reservation at Disney's Old Key West Resort which showed availability, but I preferred to make it at Beach Club Resort which showed no availability. Can I prepare the wait list request, or do I need a Vacation Club Advisor to prepare it?

    Welcome to planDisney, James, and Welcome Home!

    I am always excited to talk with fellow Disney Vacation Club Members about the wide variety of unique DVC Resorts. We have stayed at both Disney's Old Key West Resort and Disney's Beach Club Villas, and either option will transport your party to an idyllic beach oasis. Let's discuss creating a Waitlist request for Disney's Beach Club Villas.

    My recommendation when reserving a Disney Vacation Club trip is to go ahead and secure the dates that work for you with a DVC Resort that has availability. Once your initial reservation is complete, you can then start creating a Waitlist request. You begin by selecting "Book a Vacation" under the "Plan Vacation" tab. Then you can search for your desired Resort, dates, room type, and party. If the Resort does not have availability, then you simply select "Waitlist This Entire Stay." Depending on your flexibility, you can select having your Waitlist remain active until 31 days or seven days before your arrival. You can have two active Waitlist requests per Membership per Use Year. You can also modify your Waitlist request at any time under the "My Dashboard" tab. If you need further assistance, always feel free to contact a Vacation Advisor at Member Services. If you do end up staying at Disney's Old Key West Resort, I highly recommend Olivia's Cafe for lunch or dinner. The Southernmost Buttermilk Chicken is absolutely divine. 

    Thank you for visiting us at planDisney. I would love to help you plan any future Disney Vacation Club adventures!

    Enjoy making magical memories!
