    Will I lose my whole reservation if my waitlist is not available? I only have one day waitlisted at the beginning of the stay and can lose a day if needed.

    Hello Calandra, welcome to planDisney!

    A Disney Vacation Club Membership is fantastic way to add to your travel experience. I love being able to have flexibility when it comes to planning a vacation. I like that I can choose the perfect sized accommodations for the party I’m travelling with, discover a large number of Disney Resorts and travel when I’d like; a DVC Membership makes this possible! 

    Calandra, I have good news for you. I spoke to DVC Member Services and they confirmed that your reservation is separate from your waitlist so if your waitlist does not happen to be available, your reservation is still secure. I’ve had a few waitlists become available over the years; I hope you’ll be lucky too! Some waitlists have come through shortly after they were created and others were closer to my travel dates. Keep an eye on your email as this will be the first place you will see any change posted. 

    While your countdown calendar is getting closer to your arrival date, I recommend starting to think about any dining your party might like to experience. I like to keep an eye on the Member Benefits page to stay on top of any Member perks and offers. Here, you can also find any discounts on tours and experiences - I have a hard time choosing what to do! 

    I hope this information is helpful to your vacation planning. If you have any other DVC or planning questions, please visit planDisney again!

    See ya real soon,
