    Can you book a resort and then change to another resort without having to pay a fee the second time? Asking for a friend.

    Yes, if you booked online, you have a changeable reservation. That means you can change it at any time the same year, without paying another fee. Can be another resort, a different time, a different size -- doesn't matter. They all fall under the changeable reservation umbrella.

    If you booked by calling in, however, you're up a creek.

    Thanks. Do I need to purchase cancellation protection?

    No, I wouldn't (actually I never have) for a changeable reservation. If you have a changable reservation and you need to cancel within 30 day period, then move the reservation to somewhere/place > 30 days out using all your points or more in the reservation. Once it is moved then cancel the reservation.

    The only time you may consider adding cancellation protection is if the reservation is near the end of the year or non-changeable reservation.

    This is true for most reservations. If you have made a home week reservation, then that is non-changeable. But there isn't a fee to book nor cancel a home week reservation. The other issue is with Fiesta Americana reservations. They are now non-changeable reservations. So you will need to cancel and rebook with another fee to change.

    They changed that a couple years ago, all club reservations* are now changeable, they just charge you more by phone.

    *Except FA as GT75 has pointed out.

    Thanks all. Just made our first reservation: we booked Ocean 22 for the end of June! Last room for the date we wanted.

    BTW, when changing a booking online, the website assumes your primary goal is new dates.
    The link to change resorts is not so obvious, but can help find availability MT 30 days out to avoid a cancellation penalty.
