We may need another room for our trip next year. If we book a 2bd and then want to change it to a 1bd, will they just lock off the studio? Or is it possible that no 1 bd will be available?
thanks tara

It will depend on your dates. If there is a waitlist when you try to make the change, you'd go to the bottom of that list.

When a res is booked as a 2BR, it is just that and not a 1BR and a studio (at least for reservation purposes). If a change is later desired it will depend entirely on availability at that time.

Good luck!

Yes......but that isn't always an absolute. It is very much true if you have a dedicated 2 Br. If you have one and need a 1 Br you have to cancel and reserve a 1 Br based on availability.

A lock off 2 Br could.....COULD......be a different story, depending on the circumstances. Managers do have some discretion in dealing with emergency situations. I know because we almost had to take advantage of that discretion. Fortunately we didn't have to make a change, but MS would have worked with us to some extent had a heart attack in our group forced us to change or cancel plans.

When we downsized from a 2BR to a 1BR for our last night this most recent trip (Vets' Day), we had to go on the waitlist for a std view 1BR first. Once that came thru, we cancelled the 2BR for the last night and linked the ressies (we did not have to move). If you simply change your mind and want to change your ressie from a 2BR to a 1BR, you will need to get in line with all the other folks who want a 1BR for that night. MS does this so that folks don't over-reserve, then change their minds later, leaving them with a lot of extra inventory to rent.
