The big day arrives tomorrow! Reservation day.
Yes. Florida is a very popular snowbird destination. And, if you want to ensure that you have a site during the peak season, then you have to reserve well in advance.
We are, hopefully, coming back to Myakka River Motorcoach Resort in November for a long-term stay. We will find out tomorrow morning if we will have a site for next winter.
The resort will open reservations for guests wishing to reserve for 3 months or more at 9:00 am. By phone or in person. Sites will be offered on a first come, first serve basis. The only way to guarantee a favourite site is to buy one.
There are a number of sites that are offered as rental sites. To secure a specific rental site requires you to reserve that site before someone else. Which, unfortunately, means that many people line up all night to try and get their preferred rental site.
The resort does not work through the people waiting in line first. You could call in at the same time that the line at the resort opens up. You could secure a site by phone before the person who had stood in line all night. You might even secure the site that they were hoping to get.
Lorraine is planning to get into line later this evening to help us secure our preferred rental site.
Where will I be? Looking after our golden retriever of course.
