It wouldn’t be hard to do, but there would be way too much collateral damage. For example, last minute resort changes, DVC waitlists, etc would lose FPs if they associated A resort reservation number with a FP. So yes, I agree it’s not something WDW could pull off without causing lots of headache all around.
In my experience, FP within 30 days stick around. But it’s been a while since I have tested this due to an upcoming real trip.
No, it's pretty easy.Oh, they could do even that with some very complex programming with a whole lot of IF statements in it.
IF the FP doesn't have W or X or Y or Z (or however many different exceptions there are) associated with it, then delete it.
I simply have zero faith, less than zero, that Disney can ever program their system to accomplish something that complex.
It's just best left alone. I mean, seriously how many FP can there possibly be out there associated with a resort stay canceled inside 30 days? Are they really talking about THAT many, in the realm of ALL the FP for a day?
FP made > 30 days out get a flag with the date of resort check in. Then check to see if there is a resort stay for each day between the flagged date and the day of the FP.
Sweeps can be done each day, up until the night before the day of the FP.
FP made at <= 30 days get a null flag, so safe from sweeps.
