I'm with you. The last 3 should be enough to get the experience. We all hate shelling out green.
Agree- I think last three would be a good compromise

I hear that- but I am also going for the snorkeling and relaxing and a 64k a night property. so now the question is for all 5 days? I am thinking the last 3.

And I'm jealous you were able to snag award nights- that'll be an amazing stay most likely

pleasant turn of events- for both diamond and gold members they offer complimentary upgrades to a standard OWB (I am 99% sure its upon arrival) or 16,300 cfp (~$145)/night total to get a deluxe overwater villa confirmed.

How'd you confirm this? Email? Do you have the address?

do you have a reservation? And I already paid and cc was charged and have email receipt saying I am in deluxe overwater villa. Another user on ft had the same experience.
I started by emailing the basic reservation desk

If I'm landing at 5:20AM in PPT via AF, is the 7AM from PPT to BOB okay or should I do a later one? What happens if I miss it?

I did 6:20 AM into PPT and 8:30 AM out of PPT. We made it in plenty of time and we were pretty much last in line for customs.

In addition the Domestic "Terminal" is a large non air-conditioned room that you won't want to spend more time in than you have to
