Vacation Strategy Confirmation Email Timeline

I just received my confirmation letter and final balance due email from Vacation Strategy for our rental at Wyndham Bonnet Creek. We are 52 days out from our check-in, has anyone else ever received their email this far out? I was under the impression that the balance would be due more around 30 days out.

When I booked with them, I was told I would receive it 30-50 days out.

Just got mine today and I called the WBC to confirm my reservation before paying. I was in the system and everything appears to be in order. Sounds like some of the prior headaches have been resolved.

Except for the downside of having to pay at the 50+ day mark vs. the 20 day mark

I was thinking that others had posted the final payment was due very close to their trip. I thought maybe I was not remembering correctly. At least I am not losing my mind
So you can call the resort directly and ask them about your reservation? What number do you call? Thanks

I called WBC too to confirm and everything seems to be kosher, so I went and paid the balance. Now I can't wait to get there!!!!

When you get your confirmation from Vacation Strategies it will contain a phone number to the Front Desk. They'll ask for your Name and Arrival Date. They pulled mine up immediately and took down my preference for room location. So at this point it appears I only need to show up on my arrival and show my ID This is going very smoothly from my perspective.

I put a request in for Tower 5 Fireworks view, then Tower 6 Fireworks view, then just Tower 6.

I've never been either but I know my kids will want the pools at either 5 or 6.
