I will be participating in the WDW College Program this spring, with the arrival date of January 12th. Nonchalently, I call up DVC Member Services to book a studio for two nights thinking that it's early January and that everything will be available - WRONG. This is definately a lesson to research WDW events before planning. EVERYTHING on property is currently full, minus the Grand Floridian. I'm currently waitlisted at three DVC resorts.
Does anyone have advice on where to stay if nothing is available on property? Does anyone have experience with Marathon Weekend?
(This is also a heads up to anyone planning a trip during this time...)
