I was speaking more around Park tickets in general but agree, hotel/DVC reservations should have some priority for tickets/entry.I will contribute because Disney did something truly stupid.
We had booked GC 11 months ago because we own there. Who knew that it would still be closed. Today, we called to get it cancelled and asked what we can do with the points.
The answer we got was: too bad, so sad.
We have a call into a supervisor, but now we're scrambling to figure out what to do with those points. Which have to be used by the end of May. At this point it looks like maybe WDW for a few days at Saratoga is the only thing available.
