Hi, All! Second time in Vegas, FIRST visit to the strip - definitely a newbie to all this! Heading to Vegas in December and hoping to use my loyalty points but I have a few questions. Even though it shows that the mid-week bonus room date that I want is an available date for the NYNY, should I call ahead to make sure they have it open before purchasing it? If I purchase the MGM buffet, but we do not get around to using it, can I turn it back in and get my points back? There are three of us but only two of us have enough loyalty points to purchase tickets to KA, so I was planning on purchasing the first one with my points and a second at full price, my sister is planning on purchasing the companion ticket(each person is only limited to one per, correct?). How do we make sure our seats are together? And finally....Is the NYNY across the street from MGM? Thank you so much for any help you can give me!!
