As noted, 5 nights = 380k, you'd be short.

Second, all but certain credit cannot used for seaplane.
Is it not usually charged to the folio? Havenít been to Conrad MLE but at SR MLE, SR BOB, and Conrad BOB the fees were all charged to folio.

No Marriott points?
I do, but then I'd need to upsell to OWB.

1. Don't you get a free weekend night on sign up?
2. I'd use the credit in activities anyways. Sounds very easy to spend $500

Saw a post where someone successfully made advance "down payment" using aspire towards room charges, which was just the seaplane, and will make another in next year before their stay. So you can actually use 2 years of credit to cover the plane ride if you book far enough in advance.

Anyone want an Spectacular Lagoon Oasis OWB with private pool at the W MLE from 11/1-11/6 for $3,500?
Room is selling for $7,800 at the SPG prepaid rate online.

Or you can ask if people want to buy your MT points at ~1 cpp :)

On a related note, anyone want SR (5n)/W (7n) MLE OWB in July???

4000 each.

Doing this schedule, there's no way to take advantage of 5th night free, right? Is there anywhere you can leave to on Friday and make it there before Shabbos?

is it really that much of a difference to leave Thursday afternoon or early Friday morning?
