Thank you so much! You are awesome and I learned something...I didn't know that that chart existed on the website. Thanks again!

I usually have called in in the past...is going online a better option to avoid a busy signal?

Isn't that a great link?! It's one of the best things Marriott has developed to help us, that's for sure, and we were all happy last year when they first came out with it. Hopefully next year they'll issue updated ones, because without it I always had to ask TUGgers the same way you did. :D

About making reservations at the 12-mos mark through your account - I learned here that it usually works better and faster than calling in, and it's worked very nicely the few times I've done it. Just make sure that you familiarize yourself before that morning with the various screens you'll see. You can sign in anytime and click through all the way to the calendar to get a good idea of what you'll see, and then that morning you can go partway through just before 9 so that you're one of the first in line.

BUT, this year (during this last week, actually) a few people are reporting that there have been problems and delays with online reservations. I guess I'd try to do both at the same time, call in AND go through the online process, just in case those problems continue. Good luck - it sure is nerve-wracking!

I did look at the site after I got your post...I am assuming that I would "book to occupy my villa" but need to do a seperate reservation if I lock off. I was thinking the same as you....have my finger and the computer and my other hand on the phone...I have used 2 telephone lines before to do this:wall: ....it is always fun. I think that this year for the first time I am not "locking off"....with my kids in high school, we can't take them out of school as easily and we only have summers...so my easy trades just got a lot more difficult. Not to mention the cost of airfare....that used to not be a factor in the decision, now it is:ponder: .... I really appreciate you taking the time to help!!
