The Vacation Dollars are automatically given to your room (& all your guests' rooms) if they stay 3 nights or longer (5 or more nights for $1500). If you want to apply the $1500 to your wedding stuff, it can only be applied to a package (you can't use it for add-ons to the free package). And I think it has to all be used for the wedding package or none--I don't think you can just apply any dollrs you have leftover to the wedding package. My WC wouldn't tell me much about how the Vacation Dollars worked, she directed me to the Miami office (which wasn't that helpful either). The Vacation Dollars cannot be used towards private functions or guest rooms (except in the case of an upgrade to cocierge level--& I'm not sure how much that upgrade costs). They also cannot be tranferred among rooms or used to pay for your room. You either use them on the alloted services or you lose them.
We used the Vacation Dollars for the spa, the salon, golf & tours. My guests & I loved the Vacation Dollar promotion--it's especially good for any golfers in your group. You might can talk more people into coming to your wedding by telling them about the great golf course they can play for free! I played golf 3 times, my DH played twice, we both went on two tours & we used $300 towards the spa & salon--we did all that without paying a penny.
