Default Can I change my resort with less than a week before check in?

We booked a last minute trip and of course today Iím seeing a resort available thatís much more desirable..
I know if I cancelled, my points would go into a holding account. But, what if I just switch resorts? It will cost me 3 extra points, so itís not less points that will be left over.

You can modify your reservation online.
Open the existing reservation select modify, select resorts and dates and select what is available. If itís what you want finish the steps and add your additional points.
If you need 1 time points you will need to call MS to purchase.

Yes! Thank you.. I’ve done this before just never this close to my check in date. Afraid of my points going into hold bc of the modification
Always afraid of doing something wrong & losing those precious points! ��

I have done this...but be aware that is you originally used OTUP for the reservation, you need to call MS and have them change your reservation. The OTUP donít show up in your account for you to use. Good luck!

I have made a last minute switch of resort. Nothing bad happened. Maybe the points went into holding for a second or two, but it was seamless.

Or if you used transferred points...you need to call MS to modify that too.

Points do not go in holding while you make modification, it will go in holding if left over.

Even if they go into holding, you can use those holding points to book the new stay. No problem.
