Are you referring to MIL's RCI ID# or is there another number that I am supposed to have? I don't see any other numbers on the RCI confirmation.

Thanks!

Resort Map

I have seen a couple of on line maps - but is there a resort map that I can print and look at. I have seen a couple and tried to copy them but they are impossible to read. Or possible a brochure that I can download and print -
something easy ???? I just made a reservation for August and would love to "view" the resort.

Thanks

That's the one. They can locate it based on that number and date. RCI doesn't put numbers on the reservations - thinking about it, it's probably because it wouldn't match the reservation numbers assigned by the resort since each resort would have its own reservation system. An extra number would just cause more confusion.

luvsvacations - I'll see if I can post a decent resolution scan to my PB account later and post the link for you (and everyone else).

Map

luvsvacations,

I had a feeling that PBucket would downsize my post, and it does so considerably. If you click through the link below, you'll get a lower resolution version of the map (about 90% reduced).

If you want me to e-mail a higher resolution version (pdf, tif or jpg), just send me a PM with your coordinates, I'd be happy to send it along.

The map:


Note, this is the 2010 version. In 2011 they corrected an error on buildings 44/45 (should be red). Couldn't find any other differences.

and the unit listing:

OK sorry - I think I am really confused. I thought when I made the ressie it was for 12401 International Dr - looks like I made it at 8800 Vistana Centre Dr - but when I looke at the photos it mentions the Cascades, Fountains - had a picture of Zimmies which I thought was at International Dr - are they one in the same ??? Thanks again. I see 2 different names Sheraton Vistana Villages and Sheraton Vistana Resort Villas (which is apparnetly where I made my ressie) Confused in Michigan!! Thanks

Sheraton Vistana Villages and Sheraton Vistana Resort are two seperate places. 8800 is the address for SVR and you are in the correct thread to research the Sheraton Vistana Resort. Have a great trip!

So I should call Diamond Lane? Or can I do my requests online?

We will be here the 3rd week of March. Does anyone know if the game room issues "tickets" on games like ski-ball. If so, is there a counter to redeem those tickets for prizes?

In one of the pictures it looks like they offer ski-ball, but my son loves collecting tickets and exchanging them for the prizes. Also, in what section of the resort would this be located.

Thanks!

Stupid question time, but this inquiring mind wants to know......Is it possible to make payments on this resort, like Disney, that way its paid off way inadvance? If not, thats ok. Would just make my life a little easier if its possible.
Thanks!

I would just do the online form (link is posted a couple of pages back). With 3 weeks on your ticker, this is just about the right time to put that request in. They will probably e-mail a confirmation that they have the request a few days later, but I have read that the confirmation is pretty sporadic.

Pretty sure not. We've only peeked into the arcades there, but the machines are pretty much the standard coin-op variety. There is an arcade on both the North (Fountains) and South (Springs) side, but the North side was bigger (maybe 20 machines?)

If that is something he really loves, try a trip to Dave and Busters on I-Drive. They are all about tickets and prizes. Also , the world's largest McDonalds on I-Drive at Sand Lake has a huge games section. I am pretty sure they offer prizes based on a trip report I read a while back. (http://www.disboards.com/showpost.ph...3&postcount=11) They don't mention prizes, but there is a prize cage in the photos, and a lot of the games that are often ticket games.

Hope that helps!

Have a ton of fun!

That probably depends on how you go about renting your villa. Direct from Sheraton/Starwood I would think that installments probably aren't the norm. If you are renting direct from an owner; a lot of them prefer installments in advance. If you book through a TA, they might accept payments as well. Anything is possible...

After lots of questions and lots of help from many of you here (especially bankr63), I am proud to announce that I have submitted my Diamond Lane request and we are 25 days from arriving at WDW. We will be at AKL for the first 2 nights (which is a surpirse to DH, DD, and DS) and then we will be moving to SVR. We are so excited! Thanks to everyone who helped along the way. I know this trip will be fantastic and couldn't have done it without your help!

That's getting close - enjoy yourselves!

Don't forget to report back on your experience. Would love to hear your impressions after a back-to-back with AKL. We'll be waiting...
