I defend it because I like having the flexibility of being able to change my reservations to get what I want or change my plans.It is kind of funny watching those who defend walking over time. Years ago it was that only the AK concierge rooms were a problem to get and needed to be walked. Then it was standard studios at 1 or 2 resorts. Now it’s most standard studios at most resorts. The bar keeps changing over time. It is like watching a slow motion train wreck. People who have been defending walking all along have certainly been dead wrong on how much this problem would expand so why should I listen to them now. For all I know all rooms will have to be walked someday. I mean that’s the trend. This issue should have been nipped in the bud years ago.
I also defend it because I like having the ability to do what we can do with the online booking tool, which it think is what has changed how much walking has been done.
I would rather have to adjust what and how I get rooms and allow those that want to walk to do so in exchange to keep the flexibility and online booking tool.
I have said before....any type of cure will be way worse and IMO, something else will come along that people will start seeing as unfair and want it changed,
