Miss checking in on the 1st day of your reservation?

If you miss checking in on the first day of a reservation, will you lose the whole ressie? I rented DVC points for a Saturday-Thursday stay and now my mother has decided that she doesn't want to keep the kids all weekend. She wants me to drop them off Sunday afternoon instead. I explained to her that renting DVC points is non-refundable (which I told her when I asked if she would keep them also) but she is not budging. I am kind of panicking right now. What if we can't make it until Sunday evening?

As DVC points are nonrefundable, the resort cannot, by contract, cancel your reservation. It would behoove you to call member services and let them know so they can put a note on your reservation, but the room is yours for the entire stay whether you show up or not.

It probably would behoove you to have the member from who you rented points to call member services, FWIW.

Thanks. I rented from a company. The agent emailed me back a few minutes ago and said since it is a minor date shift, the member should be able to accommodate it. Hopefully everything will turn out ok.

Regardless of the setback, I would be sure to take Mom a lovely gift thanking her for her help.

Something like a pound of Mickey's Coffee.

Or a pound of fudge from Goofy's.

Or maybe a pound of sand art from one of the native American artists...

If you don't show up on the first day of your reservation, it is cancelled and the points are lost.

I checked on this with my rental and was told that as long as I told them that we would be fine. I was told that the reservation is paid for and you can check in on the first day or the last day. I wanted to know what happened just in case we had an issue with our flights.
