Maistre Gracey is a very reliable source for that infromation. I trust it is accurate. I just wish they bothered to print it in the new vacation planner.Originally posted by pplasky
I read on the community board that someone who went to a member meeting at SSR was told that MS has officially raised the occupancy limits in a 1BR to 5 adults. If true, this should take some of the heat out of this topic. They still will not provide extra linens.
So, no new bedding. If you want a 5th person in the unit, they will have to bring a sleeping bag or air mattress. While most adults wouldn't want to sleep on the floor, I bet the kids would be fighting over who wouldn't have to share the fold-out!Originally posted by Maistre Gracey
After the meeting, I chatted with Judi Kaufman (sp?), and one of the lead people in Member Services. I asked several questions, including occupancy rules, home resort retention when transferring points, and about housekeeping.
They responded that occupancy limits has just been raised to 5 adults in a 1br, with no additional bedding provided. Studio is still 4, and 2br still 8.
The official written policy per the contract is 4, even the "plus one under three" is an add on by DVC. I'd bet DVC will not put the 5 in a 1 BR in writing other than possibly listing 5 on the confirmation. DVC has not shown much attention to enforcing the policy until recently but as long as people are "reasonable", I doubt there'll be much issue. But it is an issue that affects every member to one extent or another, even if only by increased maintenance, amenity usage and the like.Originally posted by Doctor P
Doesn't really appear that there was any change in policy that occurred in any official sense. The quote from Master Gracey was far from a claim that an "official policy" had been changed. Just a reiteration really of what we have heard from MS for quite a while on this issue.
