    Hi, I'm DVC & booked for Dec. I have 2 wait lists pending for same time hoping to get a different resort. Since my wait list is for up to 7 days out, should I do on-line check-in early or wait until 7-day mark? Don't want to lose the wait list spot. Th

    Howdy Leslie!!

    This a great question and I am so glad you are thinking so strategically about your reservations and waitlists!

    I had the same question myself not too long ago and a Cast Member with Member Services advised me to wait as long as possible to complete my on-line check-in.  If you do the on-line check-in earlier than the 7 day mark, it shouldn't impact your waitlist but it does complicate the process a bit if your reservation changes.  It's best to hold off until you know exactly where you will be staying.

    Thanks so much for your question and please let me know if you need any further information.  Have a magical day!
