Yes, if you go through and look but do not confirm or anything, your reservation remains unchanged. At least in my limited experience

i don't think there will be any problem like this. you are MODIFYING existing reservation. it checks to see if your dates are available and then you submit modification. it is not a cancel, then book...a true modification.

I recently walked a BWV standard view studio for the first week in December 2019 and when you choose to modify a reservation there are several pages where you need to confirm reservation details and then the final confirmation (where you check the box for terms, etc.). If you don't make it through all of those steps, it will not modify or change the original reservation.

So, one thing that is supposed to happen for HGVC (and it's currently broken) is that if, for any of the days you currently hold, your reservation is the only availability for the day, it will not let you do an add-on modify as it indicates that there is no availability for that day, i.e. it doesn't take into account the one you have as you try to build the reservation.

Does DVC work better at counting that as availability for building?

Cheers.

Is the HGVC booking system set up like the DVC system where you can modify reservations online? It sounds like with HGVC you have to release the reservation first in order to be able to modify. But does HGVC also allow waitlists that automatically fill? Sorry, I know nothing about HGVC.

As for the DVC online booking system, your existing reservation shows as available (only to you) when you are attempting to make modifications.

Thanks, will probably try that too. And it is my home resort at 11 month date! Studios are just too popular!

remember that the latest walk you can take is (at 8:00 for me) the last night you're staying.

e.g., on morning of the 7th, walk 12/1-8 reservation to 12/7-15.

I have never walked. I think I may for an upcoming reservation.
Can you do so online if itís with borrowed points?? Just go on every day cancel one night and add on at the end? Not sure if borrowed points makes a difference. Thx

I have not walked, either, but my understanding is that borrowed points act like current year's points for online booking and the answer is yes, you can walk with borrowed points.

One-time use points and transferred points, on the other hand, cannot be used online, so you would not be able to walk online with those.
