    I found making changes to flights on SW easier when I created an account for each of the people I was booking for. You will most likely already have an account number assigned when you got your credit cards.

    We stayed in the same room type. I didn't think it was dated. Read the review and thought to myself - I hope I never become that jaded.

    I enjoyed the photos though, trip down memory lane. :)

    Debated whether I should even bother mentioning these two stinkers of offers are coming to an end tomorrow, 5/16/19, unless they're extended, so here you go:

    Chase Marriott Bonvoy Boundless - 100,000 points after spending $5,000 in the first 3 months, $95 annual fee not waived

    Chase United Explorer - 40,000 miles spending $2,000 in the first 3 months; an additional 20,000 miles after spending another $6,000 within the first 6 months, $0 introductory annual fee then $95

    I’d suggest booking one ways..which it sounds like you are going to do. Book the flight, then add your companion. If the flight happens to drop in price you can’t change it online just call and they do it over the phone

    I'm going to sit this one out as well. I don't need the points until late November. I can also have dh transfer over some of his MR stash to complete our reservations or I could *gasp* use some of my UR rewards (which I won't likely be doing)

    On another note I was successful in getting Marriott to honor their lowest rate guarantee. We are going to Whistler again for winter break (dd really loves it there), but the rates on the Marriott website were around $700.00Cdn / night. I noticed on Expedia there were around $400US. So I submitted the online form through the Marriott website and received confirmation the next day they had accepted my "claim". Total for 7 nights is now $3,100.00Cdn. I was pretty excited about this rate because they took the Expedia rate and gave me an additional 25% off :banana::banana:!

    :wave: Waving hi(gh) from Colorado Springs! Great trip so far. We've had amazing weather. Beautiful blue skies. First two days were highs in 60s. Today was 80 which is hot for me but we spent most of the day traveling to/from pikes peak so not a problem.

    So far we hit Florissant Fossil bed ( petrified redwood stumps), Mueller state park, Garden of the Gods, Pike's Peak, AF Academy, Manitou Springs& Cliff Dwellings, Great Sand Dunes NP, Zapata Falls. Two more days to go. Only mistake (so far) was not checking altitude for Florissant and Mueller. We did those the first day not realizing it was even higher than CS. The altitude did us in.

    This was my use of my Marriott 7 night cert. I had the category 1-4. Worked out very well since we don't normally spend 7 days in one spot. Colorado Springs is a good home base for all we want to do.

    Thanks! Going in July (Roadtrip from San Francisco to Yosemite to Vegas back to San Francisco) so might be able to put to use (if I have them on one of our 12 or so Amex and AU cards...)

    Sharing my daughter’s travails with her name. She’s named Dayna, pronounced just like you would think. Day-na. The same as the more typically spelled Dana. I’m not sure why people have such a difficult time with it. She’s been called Diana, Dayana, Dina, Deena, Deanna, Dana with a short a sound, and a few other things I can’t even recall. I’m not sure why it’s so difficult for people.

    I think Disney is testing the ceiling on their product especially with the opening of SW. Hopefully, they notice soft occupancy rates and back track - a girl can dream, right?

    Do employee cards count as an AU? I can’t get one for my 16 year old and I don't want to hurt my husbands x/24 status.

    We have a 5 hour layover in CLT - very excited to use our priority passes...and it seems to be a dud for us. One hour in one of those little rooms with 2 of my kids doesn’t sound like a fun start to vacation at all.
