She is OBSESSED with the washing machine in the room. But to me, I see the price difference as the cost of QSDP!

Missed your last post. Like your idea of renting DVC points for a split stay so you still get to stay in the Crescent Lake area. Our November trip is still currently booked for the Dolphin. My heart isn't really in it, particularly since the news about the buses. But I also don't think my heart is in CSR (quite a bit cheaper) considering we'll have already been there in September. Plus if I don't do a 'non' Disney trip without DDP, how will I ever know if I like it or not!? I think if I knew we could park hop I'd feel more comfortable with the Dolphin.
Still waiting on a reply from VA. I can see this going the way of the outbound flight booking but I wonít have the same time tomorrow at work as I did last time.

I keep going back and forth from CSR to the Dolphin. I adore the location of the Dolphin but CSR is so much cheaper and like you all I can think is thatís food covered!

Going to give them a call tomorrow to moan.

Unreal. Is it actually possible they could have gone that quickly? Good luck tomorrow.

I suppose maybe if there were only two. Someone finally got back to me via WhatsApp again this afternoon and said better to call for reward flights.

I wasnít going to post negativity on this thread but Iím getting more and more annoyed with VA . Still no reward seats for our inbound - in any class. So we canít even book economy. Iíve contacted them on the website to provide some general feedback about how annoyed I am but I assume weíll be home by the time they reply .

On a positive note Mum and Dad have booked their flights this morning. Theyíve gone for economy delight at £645 pp which I though wasnít bad. PE is too expensive just now but theyíll keep an eye out for that coming down.

Iíve just had a pointless argument with VA on Twitter via DM where they continued to tell me to contact them via various other methods to check availability. I know how to check availability and there is none! At the moment our only option is to pay for a return ticket or return on the Tuesday rather than the Friday giving us a 13 night trip and Mum & Dad the 16 nights. I could honestly cry and Iím getting nowhere with VA because ďno one can release reward seatsĒ. Iím sure someone can . Iíve contacted them via WhatsApp again and left feedback via the website just so I can vent my frustration at their incompetence!

Oh thatís a shame that you are struggling to get your return reward flight. What date are you looking at as Iíll keep my eye out because I know they just randomly turn up sometimes. Itís Mco to Glasgow isnít it?

Yes the 24th September. Iíve set up an alert with Seat Spy and am checking constantly. Iím isolating until Tuesday as Iíve been in contact with Covid so I think thatís whatís making me so impatient. Iím trying to work from home but thereís only so much I can do and this is distracting me!

Iím just so mad about it. They sell these airline miles things as a loyalty club but you can only use them if itís convenient for them. And trying to complain is fruitless because no one on the other end has any authority. I mean they sell you miles knowing full well you may not be able to use them for the route or dates you want. Itís verging on criminal .

Try not to worry as when I was looking at August (Although from Manchester) they didnít release reward flights for a good few weeks after the flight dates were released. Hopefully they will turn up soon, good luck.
