"End of Year Processing Scheduled to Begin December 31, 2008

We sincerely regret any inconvenience, however, as in past years, your Wyndham Vacation Resorts reservation, consumer finance and online reservation systems will be unavailable during the year-end processing period, and we will be unable to process any reservation or financial transactions. During the processing period, you may still access your online account to view information posted through December 31, 2008.

Year-end processing is scheduled to begin on December 31, 2008, at 11:00 p.m., EST, and is anticipated to run through the morning of January 2, 2009 at 8:00 a.m., EST. We will provide you with the latest updates on the reopening of the system at WyndhamVacationResorts.com.

To ensure that you do not incur any penalties during our down time, we encourage you to process any necessary reservation cancellations prior to December 31st. Please keep in mind that FairShare Plus reservations cancelled less than 15 days prior to check-in will result in a 100% forfeiture of the FairShare Plus points used for the reservation.

In addition, your Vacation Planning Center will be closed on Thursday, January 1st in observance of the holiday and to allow our associates time to spend with their families."

I think they have gotten better about this, so hopefully they will be back up as scheduled. I few year ago it took over a week, I don't recall much down time last year, so maybe they got there year end processing cleaned up.
