If I cancel a trip booked with banked points within 31 days, say like 7 days before check in, can those points be reallocated to another already booked trip or will they go into holding? I know they are currently being generous with holding but that could change at any time.

And can expiring banked points be put into RCI? How about expiring points in holding?

Yes expiring banked points can be put into RCI. In fact a CM did this for me over the phone when I cancelled a Sept reservation made with such points. I didn't know it could be done. In RCI they are good through the end of 2022. Frankly I don't know if I will ever use them, but it was nice of her to help me with this.

Don't know about points in holding (but I know who does...)

Default Using banked points

I have never banked points before and when I make a reservation in the future how will I know what points I'm using and if I'm selecting the banked points that will expire before the others in that UY? I'm sure it's simple, but I don't want to mess this up.

I'm always in borrow mode.
Thanks!

Does anybody know if the Skyliner has operating weather notices and alternate modes of transport being dispatched? Nothing like walking halfway around the World at Epcot to discover suspicious weather in the vincinity...and what about those don’t want to use a skyliner?

When you make a reservation the system will use the banked points first.
You also see the points used for the reservation at the point where you get the chance to cancel, right after the confirmation, IIRC.

Nothing in the theme parks that I'm aware of. Riviera does put up signs directing you to the bus stop when it's down.

We've only experienced a Skyliner weather closure while at DHS. Fortunately, the DHS bus depot is just past the Skyliner station.

When the Skyliner is running, bus service between the Skyliner Resorts and Epcot/DHS is reduced to one per hour.
