Question for you:
I’m in a situation where I am hanging on to the last thread of hope to make one more modification to my DVC stay on marathon weekend and, if I’m lucky and am able to nail it down, I will end up with points going into holding. The new reservation would take fewer points than the current reservation and it’s my understanding that if that happens and you’re within 30 days then the excess points go into holding.
That then means I can use them until the end of my use year (which is December, huzzah! plenty of time!).
I have plans to be in the world in September 2022 and once this whole malarky is done I will re-make that reservation at my home resort, with hopes to switch to another resort once within 7 months. Can I make the reservation for the full length of stay (let’s call it 5 days) and then, once within 60 days do a massively quick drop/add where I modfiy the 5 days to 3 and then use the points in holding to re-reserve the last 2? I know I’d be taking a chance in doing so, but I think it will be the best opportunity to use the points in holding - unless their is a home-resort-only restriction on points in holding?
Let me know - it will make a difference as to whether I want to do the modification to my current reservation within that 30 days, even though I think I stand a good chance of getting it the closer I get to marathon weekend.
