My fault for completely forgetting to set my timer for 11:59. Went to try to reserve SDO for Waste Management Golf Tourney. All home reservations gone for Sunday 1/31/21. Now I have to try for the following weekend.
I thought Spring Training was crazy.

sometimes they pop up again in the middle of the day or next day. I've seen this with WKV. Keep checking. The system seems glitchy

Is the Waste Management Open week more popular than Spring Training weeks? I tried for the first time to get the week of 1.31.21 and was successful for a two bedroom and the larger one bedroom. I usually only book Spring Training.

How do you like your Grandview ownership?

I think it is one of the best ones out there. Booked 3 weeks at the Hilton NYC for may. I just own too many points.

It can be because it’s only one week while Spring Training is multiple weeks and is dependent on the actual week in the month. Mid to late March are better than late Feb early March in some cases.

I would not want to be there now if I was not interested in the tournament. I will rent my units. Last night I was able to get another small one bedroom with a platinum unit I own at SDO

Wow. I wasn’t aware there was anything going on at that time. I traded in for the week 1-31 - 2-7. We’d already booked the prior week at a different resort.

It can pull the hard to get weeks when you miss the midnight release.
Thanks. Not sure how that works. So If I am doing this on the Starwood portal, does the computer know that the unit I am trying to reserve is a platnum unit?

Yes, it does. I own several weeks and it will show me the week or weeks that pulled the reservation.
I am shooting for Spring Training so I will have to stay awake and not miss it. Spring Trainig disappears quickly I learned from last year.
