I can’t see any Vidanta units on Interval with my SDO deposits…….is Vidanta no more with Interval or does SDO not have enough trading power?

I'm not seeing anything in RM with our Orlando Vistana units, neither 1BR or 2BR. I also can't see anything using our Marriott units. I didn't check NV.

I no longer see them available as getaways in any location or exchanges

Yeah I stopped seeing Vidanta in my II Mexico searches several days ago. I thought maybe it was because I have a current Vidanta exchange scheduled, and that maybe they found a way to have them not even show up in my searches since I can't exchange again for 3 years. But sounds like that might not be the reason if other people can't see Vidanta in their II searches either.

I don't have any Vidanta exchanges and have never been to any of their properties.

Even more curious: I don't see them in RCI either.

Vidanta changes their exchange policies more often than some people change socks, so who knows?
There have not been Vidanta / RCI week listings for exchanges or Extra Vacations since [ at least ] Saturday.
[ June 15 -2024 ]

I started an OGS for Puerto Vallarta area - so that I might get a notification when they re-load inventory .

I booked Vidanta grand luxe in October 2025 using my SDO 1 bedroom. It was posted on sightings.

Thanks, I was just looking for the context as the recent changes seem to be in just the last few days.

Oh ok . I hope this is not permanent because I exchanged that week for vista encantada in Cabo for 12/25 which was also posted on a sightings thread.

I'm not sure if this is the reason, but SFX hasn't been able to book/check anything since Friday as the "Partner Portal" that Vidanta uses has been down. Perhaps all the exchange companies use that? It was still down as of yesterday as well.

Probably Vidanta is negotiating with Interval some changes in exchange policies, hopefully not for worse. I heard that's what they did in the past.

But they seem to be missing in RCI too. So perhaps they are negotiating changes with them too?
