    how do i find out if my wait list has been approved

    Hey there, Ana! Welcome to planDisney and Welcome Home, neighbor! I'm so glad that you've stopped by with your vacation planning question. Chatting with a fellow Disney Vacation Club Member just makes my day!

    Don't you just LOVE being a Disney Vacation Club Member?! Knowing that my next magical adventure is always just around the riverbend is what makes Membership priceless to me. The flexibility of being able to book an endless combination of Disney destinations and waitlist any unavailable Resorts is what makes Membership so convenient, easy and magical. I have waitlisted quite a few magical Disney Vacation Club Resort stays, so, I am happy to answer your question today!

    If your Waitlisted Resort and dates become available, your Waitlist request will automatically be confirmed, and a confirmation email will be sent to you. If you chose the Waitlist to replace an existing reservation, that will happen automatically, as well. You can check the status of your Waitlist by logging in to your account on the DVC website, going to the "My Dashboard" section, clicking the little orange arrow to the left of your Waitlisted Resort and dates, and clicking the "View or Modify Details" button. If the Waitlist has not come through yet, it will still be listed as "Active." Here, you can also modify or cancel your Waitlist. 

    Ana, while you are waiting for your Waitlist to come through, I would suggest searching the DVC website for your dates several times a day. I am not exactly sure how or when Waitlists are confirmed, but it must not be immediate, because I have found my Waitlisted Resort for my exact dates a few times by searching the site constantly. What I have learned from doing this so much is that there is constant movement of canceling and booking of reservations in the system, so, search often! You may just get lucky!

    Ana, I hope this was helpful, and I hope your Waitlist comes through soon! Please stop by any time with any vacation planning or DVC questions!

    I hope to see ya real soon,
