Has anyone heard of this? We have a reservation for a Sat check in Gatlinburg for Spring Break 2009. Just got a call today with RCI rep telling us that our check in date will be Sunday now instead of Sat. as Wyndham is changing their calendar and that is changing all the check-in dates.

Any comment? Has this happened to anyone else?

Thanks

Wyndham hasn't changed nor is it in the process of changing its calendar. You need a better explanation from RCI as to what is going on.

Calendar Change for Wyndham

I thought that it sounded crazy. Unfortunaly the person that I have to speak with is out until Monday. I guess my hands are tied, because after listening to her message on my answering machine they do not have a unit for check in on Sat, but have one for Sunday. We have had this booked since June or so. We can check in on Sunday, but we really wanted Saturday. Like I said I feel my hands are tied.

We are Wyndham owners, but got this unit with a banked week. The women knows we own Wyndham, but said we would be seeing the calendar change at some if not all of the resorts owned by Wyndham.

Some Wyndham Resorts spread their check-ins over Fri, Sat and Sun. It may be that RCI does not have one with a Sat check-in in their inventory. I suspect RCI has made the change for their own reason. I suggest talking with a supervisor.

In case you want to speak with the resort manager to confirm that no changes have been made in the check-in calendar, the resort phone number for Wyndham Smoky Mountains is 865-774-3960

I don't know about that . . . Used to be it was easy to get their Kona Hawaii spacebank weeks with Saturday check-ins and the most recent blocks have been mostly Fridays. My guess is has something to do with how Wyndham is handling their check-ins at points resorts, but I'm not knowledgeable enough to figure out what.

My dim recollection of the sightings is that Smoky Mntns in particular is depositing Friday and Sunday check ins to RCI, but keeping Saturday-based weeks for internal use.
