We are going to TTR for our first time on Nov. 6th and have no interest in listening to a 5 hr speech/lunch (according to others) or being pressured about buying into some sort of a timeshare that they offer, especially when we are only there for 5 days so time is very, very valuable to us! I'm pretty sure, first timers want to experience the resort and the services they offer before they invest into a timeshare. Just sounds like good common seance to me. Didn't know if we were gonna get the cold shoulder if we didn't sit through it? Thanks for any info.
