Tugger LisaRex put together a simplified Staroption chart that's now posted in Owner Resources. (Eventually it will be on the Advice Page, too.) The other Starwood chart (from Starwood) shows weeks and days on the same chart and it's kind of overwhelming - Lisa's chart just shows the Staroptions required for weekly exchanges, in an easy to read Excel format. - Thanks, Lisa! :hi:

Denise, are you sure that the StarOptions are accurate for the Laguna Mar? I don't see a difference in your seasons as far as the week numbers go.

I'm sure of nothing! :D

Lisa - there may be a typo in the weeks column?

Basically, I think that she duped the platinum season....the gold season weeks are listed as the same as the platinum season weeks.

Lagunamar is missing weeks 1-4. Mountain Visa,Lakeside Terrace,Steamboat missing weeks 40-52. Keirland missing weeks 49-52. SBP missing weeks 51-52,Palmetto missing weeks 43-52. PGA missing weeks 51-52 51-52. Nice job Lisa, It looks like it will be a easy to read condensed chart.

Thanks for the feedback, everyone. Denise, I've made the changes and emailed them to you. Sorry for the rework.

Fantastic idea -- thank you for doing this!!

Also, for your list of updates, the weeks should be different at Vistana Villages between the Bella section and the Key West/Amelia sections.
...

Updated: Never mind. I just looked at the Starwood chart, and the weeks are all the same. Did they change that at some point? In my personal notes, the prime season in Bella is 7-17, 23-34, and 51-52. Maybe I just copied it down wrong.

You're not going wacko. At some point, some of the phase(s) changed from 6-17 to 7-17. I'm not at home, so I don't have the specific details, but I do remember this.
