What do you mean? I DID book my reservations online. I wasn't given benefit outside the rules and outside of the normal approach by some nice MS that I happened to talk to. That's what I've been saying all along. Everyone always say "DVC is nothing but inconsistent". "MS doesn't allow this". And what I said was maybe it has always been allowed but before online booking, it's always been dependent on the MS if they're going to even try it or not. Human intervention always causes inconsistencies due to different ways of interpreting rules. Systems do what they've been programmed to do. In this case, either its developer error on implementing a business rule or something that has always been allowed but is not obvious to members.

With online booking, everyone gets direct access to the booking system. If it wasn't allowed, the system shouldn't allow it to be booked or present them as options.

All I am doing is refuting the "common wisdom" that everyone has had even before online booking and presenting a case where it was allowed by the system. Not sure if those who keep on saying it's not allowed has even tried to do it lately with the new online booking system. I booked 3 trips with our family of 6: 1BR BCV, 1 BR BWV and 1 BR BLT. I was surprised myself when it happened. I was glad I tried it instead of just doing what I read from the boards.
