Well today the same happened at 1pm, the 8th became available and the 9th remains waitlist only.
However, the 10th is showing as available so tomorrow, maybe I can grab a villa, my work browser though is so slow I am not holding out.

For mine a person or persons was releasing a day, a day or two after the latest date to book was released, so I got one day then waited and added on/modified my booking. Got 6 of the days I needed adding on one at a time and then the 7th day I needed didnít get released for a couple of days, I just kept checking and then grabbed it.

I definitely would keep the waitlist and only release it if you are sure you donít want it any more.
The system was showing today and tomorrow as waitlist only, meaning there was no point me checking today as all the rooms were already reserved by people booking probably 2 nights or more.

I dident waitlist.

Iím most likely not understanding what you are trying to book. However, why canít you book the 8th and pick up a day at a time going forwards, seeing as itís a Ďwalkerí preventing you booking each day?

I could do that, but I need to book 2.5 weeks in total, so there is a huge risk I will book a few days then be blocked out for a day somewhere.

I really need to book a week at the 11 month and then add on days till I get my 17 days.

I am considering booking a view room and going less days as these are about 1/3rd more in points.

I still have time though, AS long as I return before end of Nov (as thats when out AP will run out)

Just noticed you are trying to book the most popular view/point Value BWV studio. TBH, itís the same with BLT standard view at popular/low point times. Plus, AKV Club and Value.

Still blocked out, however the days behind are all free so far in September, so I will keep trying each day, but as long as they all stay free I will be able to book something. Ideally I want Early October, so will see what happens.

I do wonder how long these people have been walking for, I am thinking they are probably walking to Christmas!

I think the whole walking thing causes panic and then more walk, before long it will be impossible to get any date at the 11 month window due to walkers any time of year for these low point villas

We have always been able to book 2 AKL value studios for September or a 2 bed. This year nothing available so I am having to do the same as Andrina and pick up the single days as someone is dropping them. Will know for next year but itís a real pain.
At one point even the 1 bed values only had a few days showing. Now most days are available though as people have released them.

This is exactly what I think is happening & more & more people are panicking and joining in - Iíll be honest, because Iím booking a special trip for extended family and have told them Iím gifting it to them as a birthday present, this one time I too would be buying into this panic if my points were available to do it - but then Iíd be adding to the problem, based on the Ďif you canít beat them, join themí mentality, which I absolutely hate!

Please DVC change this system to stop this hysteria! ☹️

Stil locked out, one day mid-September is now waitlist so I cant book a full 17 days at the moment. Looking like I book a pool or BW view for 30 points more per week, and then maybe either booking less days or consider another resort at the 7 month mark.

Am unsure what to do, will keep on trying for now, still got a few weeks
