I have been trying to book a BWV standard view studio for next September. every day at noon I am frozen out, you can see both Today and yesterday with no availability.

About an hour later yesterday then becomes free as people walk their reservation one day.

It's really frustrating but understandable what people are doing, I do think there should be a limit on the number of changes you can do though.

But the same system is open to you to use and walk to get the reservation you want.

Yes Gavvy I agree its very annoying. I dont know what the answer is.

Personally I simply cant be free to do it every day at the right time, nor do I have enough points to walk early enough to guarantee my booking. So although people may say its available to everyone, it isnt a level playing field (from my perspective).

I am not against walking, it's just at this rate I won't be able to get in on my day one until... well god knows, I am lucky that I can go any time between Sep and Nov 30... so I Should be able to get in at some stage.

It's just annoying as more and more are walking and its now v hard to get dates you need- unless you too walk months out- making the problem even worse.

I'd be happy to say pay an admin fee after say 3 or 4 changes, as long as it went to the cost of dues...which of course Disney would never do it go straight to Uncle Bobs 401k

I've just booked our BWV stay for end of August next year and all room types were available for our 12 night stay. thought maybe things weren't as busy but obviously not. I've never walked- never had to in 20'years -have we just been lucky! 😬 Is it busy because of food and wine? Not sure I could manage to walk a reservation - sounds torturous!

Its the standards being walked and yeah its food and wine and low points. Hardest time to get a standard. Looks like I should have walked since August.
I will keep trying but its hard as I am in work at 12 when the booking window opens.
