Not seeing any Extra Vacations. Only the last call option is showing up under rental reservations. Am I looking in the wrong place?

You are right. It is gone. Somebody must of pressed the wrong button and added it over the weekend. It was too good to be true.

That is one thing that lacks with the HGVC portal.

Can you put an on going request, say DVC Wilderness Lodge over the portal? I haven't seen that option as well.

I've never done it through the portal. I've had to call, make the request through an operator and pay for it in advance. Once you do that they notify you by email if you get a match. We just did that for DVC Bay Lake Tower, got a match in less than a week.

I hope the "guest appearance" of EV was because of a test and its going to go "live" soon!

Though to be honest, I have been disappointed with what comes up for exchange in RCI - the call and make an ongoing search option gets better results, but where is the fun in that?

I always see better availability from RCI than II.
I just don't have enough time to take more vacation :)
All my holiday DVC exchanges were from online inventory, I have never used ongoing search so far.
Keep checking and checking...
