Taking your advice, I had our travel folks call the hotel of my choice. THey
said that we had to go through Maritz, the folks who screwed up all my stuff
last year. I called Maritz, and they said I had to do it myself online. I
tried to do it online, going to the "Review/Change My Hotel Reservations"
button. I get the following error message:
An unexpected error occured on page "receipt"
The name of the exception is java.lang.NullPointerException
An error occurred while attempting to process your request.
You may wish to use the back button and
try the action again or return to the login page. "
So my travel department can't book me a room, Hilton won't book me a room,
Maritz won't book me a room, and the online registration is broken. I guess
my last option is to sleep in the street with the Disneyland panhandlers.
Looks like the CETS-2001 process learned NOTHING from CETS-2000. Or maybe
