    Is there a way to waitlist a room type regardless of location (ie - need a 2-bedroom, don't care which WDW resort)?

    Hiya Dennis,

    Welcome Home!  How exciting that you are planning a magical vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort.  A two-bedroom Villa at a Disney Vacation Club Resort is a fantastic choice for your home away from home during your vacation.  We love the two-bedroom Villas for our bustling family of five. Not only does it give us plenty of room for sleeping and gathering the 'ohana after a fun Disney day, but we love the full-sized kitchen with gadgets and gizmos a-plenty to help us make breakfasts, prepare snacks and sandwiches for park and pool days, and even make dinner right inside our Villa.  

    Right now, Dennis, you are permitted to Waitlist a Resort for up to two rooms during your use year. Unfortunately, you can't Waitlist a room type regardless of location. You do need to select the Resort, the room size, and the room type.  You can Waitlist two rooms at the same Resort if you like per use year, however, they have to be two different rooms.

    You can be added to a Waitlist for Resorts within your booking window.   Home Resort requests are able to be made up to 11 months in advance, while other Disney Vacation Club Resort reservation requests can be made up to 7 months in advance. 

    Dennis, when you request to be added to a Waitlist, you can choose if you want to keep it active up until 31 days or up until 7 days prior to your Check-In date. You will also want to note if you will be borrowing ahead Vacation Points, because should your Waitlisted room become available, it will automatically be booked. For this reason, Dennis, should you choose to Waitlist a room, be sure and cancel it if your plans change.  Once you are within the 7-day window, if you have not been moved off the Waitlist, then unfortunately it is not available for your stay.  

    I understand that may not be what you are hoping to hear, Dennis, as it requires you to select one or two Resorts and room types.  If you would like to put yourself on the Waitlist for a two-bedroom Villa, I would recommend doing so as soon as possible. 

    The Disney Vacation Club website has some Frequently Asked Questions about the Waitlist that may be helpful for you Dennis.  I am wishing upon a star that you are able to get the room you are hoping for and have the Disney vacation of your dreams.

    If you have any more DVC or Disney Vacation Planning questions, come back and see me here and I will be most happy to help you.  

    Have a magical day,
