Did you coordinate in public? (Could other members see your plan)? I’m only asking because I did something similar with a 1 br value at AK and I was able to scoop it up immediately.
I think sometimes WL will scoop up a reservation immediately and other times it doesn't (just based on my own experience of WL and stalking). I've had success with both methods. Anything is possible... I snagged two nights at VGF in December last year 2 months out! It happened to be for the exact two days I had booked elsewhere.

Oh, that's great that it worked out for you! :) We actually exchanged PMs...she was really nice...I was very grateful that she was willing to coordinate, but unfortunately (but fortunate for whomever got the days!) the waitlist scooped them up. My screen went really wonky, like it was going to let me grab them, but then when I went to book them, they were gone. I was so bummed. So I ended up just continuing my stalking. I've done ok, thankfully, considering it's a busy time of year for DVC (beginning of December)...just one more day to go! :surfweb:

After stalking to get SSR for Veterans Day (sunday-tuesday) I was pleased to just have a DVC room. I kept my waitlist for AKV Jambo (even though EVERYONE said it wasn't likely to come through, I should pick Kidani, or a bigger resort...). I'd actually forgotten about it altogether, as we have a bigger trip coming up in 12 days.

Last night, 91 days out, I got my Jambo house waitlist! Two nights on a long weekend! I'm amazed!

    That is awesome. I am still staking and waiting. I actually decided to crunch some point numbers and added a one bedroom as a possibility for my missing night after I saw two pop-up as available this weekend. I should have grabbed one when I had the chance. Nov 1st is a tough date to get.

    My stalking succeeded over waitlist. I had a studio at BLT for Dec 14 (lake view) and Dec 15 (standard). Had waitlisted the 15th for lakeview because I thought for sure standard would be really hard. Anyways checked today on a whim and DEC 15th was there. Scooped it up and there is still one available. So now don’t have to change rooms yay!!

    I was stalking, but noticed a sudden opening up at Kidani for studio for our dates for our family. So, I called and now have the four nights, Savannah studio, just what I wanted for them. This is for December and I began trying for this only 2-3 weeks ago!!
    Isn't it comforting after that constant stalking disappointment ,when everything falls into place !
    Congratulations ! :flower1:
