I think it’s so people are well aware they need a reservation and onsite stay isn’t enough, like at Universal or the former phases of closing.

And yeah, a cover yourself statement for sure (FYI I had to edit for using the acronym once, might want to edit :)). You know there are going to be people arguing at the gates that they paid $$$ to stay at X resort they should be allowed in. 🙃
Thanks for the heads up. lol

    Do you think you'll keep yours? I have a July 4 at Riviera and I think I'm going to keep it, but I still want to look at all the info they released today. I'd like to see what my room price is when they remove the dining plan first though, as the dining plan is still attached.
    I'm keeping it and I already replied to the email saying so. I had booked this reservation for the mere reason to see what would happen during reopening. I am THAT curoius :D it's a 50% discount so a night at CR for cheap is not bad

    That’s good to know they’ll move people from non DVC/FW resorts if they still want to come. Are you going to roll the resort dice and see what you get??
    yep

    Looks like outside of SAB all the pools at any DVC will be open? I really like the idea of no resort hopping too.

    Someone stop me from weakening and using that single reservation for The Riviera 7/8-7/10 and try and if the AP previews line up.
    But modified character buffet and feature pool with no resort hopping.... It’s on an AP discount...I so wanted to try out the Riviera...must...resist.

    Does someone have the exact wording of the rebooking email? Were the dates 7/11-12/31 or 7/11 - a different date?

    Won’t all pools be limiting number of people? Why would SAB be different? You already have to line up to get in with a wristband. So it seems to me it wouldn’t be difficult to keep numbers steady.
    Because people choose those resorts for THAT pool. It’s different than the rest of them and if someone is there, and cant get in, I could see them throwing a fit,

    Its the only pooL, on property with wristbands like that for that reason...it is an attraction in itself,

    Again, it’s my guess and makes sense..but it could just be too many staff needed and they don’t have them..

    If you haven’t been there, it’s wonderful. I haven’t stayed yet, but saw and and bought 175 points to add to the rest I have! Go, go, go

    I can’t tell if you actually want to be stopped or encouraged 😂. Can I do both?

    You got a great discount that may or may not happen again, but also Riviera has pretty high rack rates to begin with so you’re still paying a fair amount for a less than full experience. It’s a good time to really soak up the resort, but you also may not get the full effect if the Skyliner isn’t running and you aren’t going to parks. Modified character meal would be a plus for us TBH, you get to “see” them but can enjoy your meal without having to time the visits properly.

    Can you confirm by the 12th and still back out if AP previews are your dealbreaker?

    When it comes to the SAB, it being closed is mentioned for the DVC reopening. It really doesn’t make sense to open SAB for just BCV given SAB’s massiveness and BCV’s relatively small size. I wouldn’t assume this means SAB will stay closed when the hotel side of BCV opens.
    That's crazy.. enables social distancing. The DVC pool is tiny!!!

    My daughter took a tour on her last trip and demanded we stay there. It’s been our main resort for both our trips. We have a 1 br reservation that for some reason I just haven’t been able to make myself cancel.
