Well I'm starting a new job in 2 weeks. I THINK you aren't allowed vacation for the first 90 days. Which puts this event a few weeks too early. We will see if I can bend the rules. Also means It will I can't decide or make reservations for a bit.

I have found many employers to be flexible when it comes to previously arranged vacation commitments. I hope you can make it!

Yep just be upfront with them. When I started my current job 28 years ago on June 15 I told them that I had a family reunion over the July 4th weekend and they let me have the time off. I didn't get paid for it but I was able to take the time.

Last time I shared a room, the snoring was so bad that I could not sleep. It might say 2 people, but I'm not sharing with anyone…

Reservation is done but they ask for a 50% deposit for the room...

2+ Night Stays: 50% is due at the time of booking with the remaining balance due 2 weeks prior to arrival. If booking within 2 weeks of arrival, the full balance is due at the time of booking.
