ANY hints about when the Grand Floridian villas will have models?
 
Did it take this long for BLT to have models? I am psyched, and want to see them!:goodvibes

i am trying to find out from our guide :goodvibes

I'd love to know this too.
Won't have too much time do see when I'm there in March for ds's baseball tournament but will be back again in August at BLT and would have the time to go and see.
Thanks for anyone that finds out.

BLT models opened around October 1, 2008--about 10.5 months before the resort opened in mid August '09.

So far all DVC has said is that they hope to open Grand Floridian villas in "late 2013." That target is as much as 14.5 months away.

Of course, this will be the first resort Claire Bilby has opened so none of the prior timelines are particularly meaningful. I suspect we'll see some additional details on GF before the end of the year.

The models usually open when sales begin.

we were just at the sales center last week and the BLT models were no longer available for tours. We did not see any evidence of construction changes however.

With BLT, models opened a week or so before sales began for current members and 3+ weeks before non-members could buy. Just for the sake of full disclosure. ;)

The villas are already being built in the sales center. We took a sales tour in August and were allowed to peek into the new construction - we saw what the hallway will look like, it was completely finished.

Needless to say, the Villas will be ready to go whenever they want them to be, and it could be sooner than we think!

OK...our next DVC vacation is in December. I sure hope the preview center is opened then!

I'm curious to see the rooms, too. However, I'm afraid buying (and perhaps even staying) there is going to be out of our price range. I wonder if the preview center will replace the traditional ice cream sundaes with caviar and pâté?

Oh please tell me what the hallways looked like! Yes, I'm that crazy and excited for the GFV that any bit of info makes me happy.:lmao: What were the colors?
Thanks!!

We will be at WDW in Dec and I would be so happy if there were models to view!!:hyper:

IF my husband remembers correctly, our representative told us that the models would be ready at the sales center on November 4. :scratchin

I wonder if the sales office at Disneyland is getting the VGF model? I was just there last weekend, and didn't think to go look.
