So, I checked in, got the plastic room keys and the parking pass. She asked for the names of all guests, including two little girls under the age of 5. Please go over to the devil's island to get your wrist bands. First Devil goes through her script. Hello! So nice to see you and your spouse again! Yada Yada Yada. Me: just the wrist bands please. Okay, it will just be a minute... Devil number two, Ivan, with a thick Russian accent starts into me with script number 2. Devil number 1 is taking her time, including issuing wrist bands for the two little ones! Ivan says ok, so can we push your appointment to your next visit since you come so often? Me: no, just the wrist bands please. Ivan: I see you still use the old website, it is going away. You need to come so we can enroll you in the new web site, Travel and Leisure, which tour maintenance fees pay for. Me: no thank you, just the wrist bands please. I will call to enroll in the new website at my leisure. Ivan: you do not understand, you have to do it in person. Me: that is interesting, hey Devil number 1, are you done with my wrist bands? Devil #!: almost....

My reservation is actually at Bay Club II, in Sandestin, but you have to check in at Megestic Sun since there is no one from Wyndham at the property. To access some of the complementary stuff in Sandestin, you need an amenities card, and the access code to the parking lot gate at the beach, and also ride on the shuttle service. These two devils conveniently withheld the card from my packet (or it was an accident). So this morning I'm off to get the missing stuff........

Update: wrist band is used instead of an amenities card (finally!) and parking lot code is on the back of the parking pass.
