I guess dietary restrictions weighed in and the resorts are not booked to capacity.

I just went in and checked and it shows there are available to bank. Also tried to make a reservation over 60 days out and it was going to let me book so they did not get put in holding. And both reservations are still showing as booked on my dashboard

Please let us know what MS has to say. Hoping that they just spread some pixie dust for your guests, but this sounds really messy.

? So anybody (David’s) can call Member Services and change reservation
“ due to dietary restriction” and Covid Guidelines?
Maybe pixie dust has gotten to castperson ... Or nobody is in charge ... cast can get away with making their own rules.
I guess that explains the strange feeling I have currently on property. We are all playing a new game of Life your turn to roll the dice.

Wasnt changed for dietary restrictions but lack of options and trouble getting to anywhere else to eat with having to change busses in disney springs. Makes for a real long trip to dine at another resort

Well they better dine early in the evening. Monorail stops running about 1.5 hours after the MK closes, which now is 6 pm.

MS is not currently putting points from late cancellations into holding. They have not said when they will go back to the normal holding policy.
