Hi Wendy....
You could go fill it out now. I usually do mine 4-8 weeks ahead of time.

Have a great time !

Maria,

Which sections have been completed in the re-model? Last time we went in 2007 we stayed in the Fountains II, I think, and we liked it it was quite close to the Fountains pool with the waterfall. Is that area upgraded or no? Some of my family will be staying there in May for our gathering and I want to make sure we get a recently renovated room, if possible.

Thanks!
Michelle

HELP! Don't need a full week!

I was issued a "guest certificate" through Interval International (my parents timeshare) for a full week at Sheraton Vistana. (2BR Villa, sleeps 8). We just realized that 4/27-5/1 will go unused (4 nights). It's non-refundable so I'm trying to figure out how I could offer these four nights to someone who might be interested. It would be $90 per night (that INCLUDES taxes), so it's a great deal for the 2 BR villa.

Can I post a thread offering it? I can't figure out how to contact a moderator for the disboards to figure out if it's legal.

Any suggestions?

I will be visiting here May 22-29. I will have me, hubby and 4 teens ages 16 -18. From the sounds of it I need to try and get in the cascades if possible. Is that where the pool bar is also. Is this the biggest and nicest pool for the teens to spend some down time after the parks.

The biggest pool is the Super Pool over in the older area near the Courts and Spas. Zimmies restaurant is over there and there is a bar at the pool. The Cascades has a bar, as does the Fountains pool. So I'm not sure why you specifically only want the Cascades, but I think you and your family will enjoy this section. No matter which section you are in, you can swim in any of the seven pools.

Interval Intl doesn't allow the renting of their weeks. If they found out (and they monitor popular websites) the whole week could be cancelled and or your parents account could be suspended. Not worth the risk. Just let the four nights go unused if you can't find a friend or family member who wants to use them.

We've often used these for partial weeks. It still comes out to a pretty good daily rate compared to renting something the same size.

I was just thought I was seeing that the Cascades are nicer and better to get. I dont know really where would be the best so maybe the fountains or Cascade would be good for all of us.
