[QUOTE=hiner;1080133]Ok, I asked the DVC member we are renting from and he said we are fine since he added it at the time of reservation back in September 2010. I asked if we could pay it prior to arrival and he said we could do that too.
I think I should just pay for it before we arrive to avoid any problems, you think??[/QUOTE]
Glad to here it. You are ok then. Your reservation was made [B][I]before[/I][/B] the rule changed.
[B]MUCH better to be safe than sorry! [/B] :laugh:
The rule for dining plan on DVC stays now is DP must be paid in full when reserved, and it must be reserved/canceled no later than 3 days prior to check in. [I]Personally, I think it’s a stupid policy - especially when you consider that many DVC reservations are made 11 months in advance, often before the rates for the DP are even set.[/I]
I now recommend that my guests book the DP 30 days in advance unless they are doing one of the special events then I recommend 60 days. Works well because they have alreadty paid for the rental, and it spreads the pain out a little more! :laugh:
