    Hi All,

    I have not used my 2019 week and won't be using - Am I better off to split and deposit or deposit as 3BDR?

    Any particular week I should be looking at to deposit to maximize value?

    Thanks

    Split: depends on what you'd like to exchange into, but typically splitting and getting 2 weeks is the better value.

    Week to deposit: Check the TDI chart on II and pick the week with the highest available TDI rating.

    Wow. Apparently a non issue yet - no availability based on my season at this point. Never seem this before.

    Platinum weeks at Grande Vista are
    01 - 17 2019 check in dates of Jan 3 - April 29 (already past)
    22 - 34 2019 check in dates of May 30 - Aug 26
    51 - 52 2019 check in dates of Dec 19 - Dec 30

    I'm curious, what weeks do most MGV Owners target for Interval deposits? It looks like the weeks near Easter and Independence Day holidays are high demand, plus Christmas / New Year, of course.

    This isn't surprising given that we are already halfway through the use year and the prime summer Platinum season. It is likely fully booked. Christmas and New Years weeks would be fully booked shortly after inventory release. You can call Marriott and ask for a supplemental week to be deposited in to II. You can have them lock off and deposit a 2BR and a studio or deposit the whole 3BR. At this point, what week they give you doesn't matter.

    Availability is getting harder. You have to look further out and be open to alternatives. Like someone else said we're halfway through the year already.

    I'd call, maybe you can get a 2 BR one week and a studio a different one. Or maybe you can use it at a different resort for the FL club if your ownership is eligible for the FC. It may be that some of the lower demand weeks in the first segment (weeks 1-17) went unreserved so you may not have options unless you can get something using the FL club Cancelations happen all the time, keep your eye on the website also.

    Your best bet assuming there is nothing at GV will be Legend's Edge 2 BR since they have a large Platinum Season but Beachplace is a possibility. Doral and OP Platinum seasons have basically passed except for some very high end options. You might also see if they will allow you to reserve a different season than what you own. Also consider this a wakeup call for future planning so you're not in this situation again.

    I'd add that while it may not help with deposits, there is a possibility that there is a 3 or 4 day stretch where one can arrange a split week options though only if others have done so and orphaned a segment.

    That is definitely true but Grande Vista is probably the easiest. You just can't wait until the middle of the current year to book and 51/52 are easier to get on II than reserving on MVC.

    Marriott will apparently give me a replacement week in ii split into master and kickoff as I requested. Apparently I am better off waiting for my enrollment to be confirmed such that I can avoid fees.
