    Can't book Riviera with non-Riviera points? -- Resolved there is no issue

    Clearly I should have had caffeine before I started this process and I just figured it out. Its my first time booking with multiple contracts as we just bought at Riviera.so when the 14th disappeared (as it did at 701!), the system still showed me availability on the 15th - 21st. and when I...

    Can't book Riviera with non-Riviera points? -- Resolved there is no issue

    And when I try to book a studio now, it still won't let me do it. I definitely need to call, but the wait right now is way too long . . .

    Can't book Riviera with non-Riviera points? -- Resolved there is no issue

    well that's weird. I could use my aulani points for the 1BR but not the studio I tried to book earlier today (that was available then and isn't now!) I hate Disney IT.

    Can't book Riviera with non-Riviera points? -- Resolved there is no issue

    The availability disappeared while I was being denied. I booked another resort for now and will try to waitlist. It was very frustrating to see it and not be able to book it and watch it disappear.

    Can't book Riviera with non-Riviera points? -- Resolved there is no issue

    I tried to use my Aulani points to book a stay at Riviera this morning and the system wouldn't let me. I know I had the right day, because I was able to book at AK. I purchased direct so my points should be good everywhere. Anyone else having trouble booking at Riviera with non-Riviera points?

    Carnival pleads guilty to pollution, probation violations; cruise line fined $20M

    It makes me really sick and angry. I hope it gets more publicity and more people agree with you and stop cruising them.

    Availability 7 months out?

    Beach club was my first choice too. But we couldn't stand the 2042 contract date. We ended up buying at Rivera. Something to consider. with the promotion it was much, much cheaper than BC direct (but not nearly as cheap as a resale contract). But its a risk. I'm really counting on the gondolas...

    Carnival pleads guilty to pollution, probation violations; cruise line fined $20M

    I hope Disney and other cruise lines are more compliant. I never intended to sail carnival, and now I definitely won't. I won't sail with any line that engages in this kind of behavior.

    Just booked 1st

    We aren't big beer drinkers. But we fell in love with the Costa Rican favorite -- Guaro Sour. This is not a fine dining vacation, but we were very happy with the food options. Breakfast buffets were all good, and the final dinner in particular at El Mangroove was outstanding. If you love rice...

    Pete made me do it!

    I’ve considered it in the past but the pods were the final straw that pushed me toward using them to rent my extra points. So easy and quick. I’m glad I did it. So it worked on me.

    Just booked 1st

    It was hard for me also to accept how little there is to do. But there wasn’t much. I think the other post covers it.

    Just booked 1st

    We did Costa Rica in March as our first abd. You will love it! Congratulations! If you can I highly recommend a pre and post day. And if you want those book ASAP. It took quite awhile to get them confirmed and I waited longer than I should have. There was not enough free time in out itinerary...

    Purchased Riviera

    Your story sounds very similar to ours. Seriously considered beach club but couldn’t justify cost w such a short contract. Congratulations!

    Please help -Young Teens at Aulani...too old for Aunty's - too young for adult/older teen activities

    Yes - we’ve bought the photos every time and there have been good ones. I believe you can preview before buying to decide. I am obsessed with photos so I might not be the best judge. But we’ve had some great shots.

    Please help -Young Teens at Aulani...too old for Aunty's - too young for adult/older teen activities

    1. I don't remember the drive . . I'll try to remember to ask my husband and get back to you . 2. I took a camera on a strap around my neck. Other people had cameras in neck lanyards or zipped pockets. You have to be prepared to lose things. if it drops, you won't get it back. And at the end...

    Group size of 45?

    Wow good to know. I’ve only done one but it was undersold. I can’t imagine if we had 45. Would have been unpleasant. We plan on doing more but I’ll be asking about max group size before I book so thx for the heads up.
