Want 100 points

Seeing that the # of units at GFV will only be 147, I think it will be difficult to get in at the 7 month mark. VWL has the second least amount of total units at 181.

I haven't stayed at VWL but I hear its difficult to book. So in keeping that in mind, if I have 100 points, I can bank and borrow and stay every 3rd year, which is OK with me!!

VWL has 138 "units" or a possible 181 rooms. And other than a few select times it's possible to book at 7 months out. I'm guessing that GFV will have no dedicated studios or 1 bedrooms and probably in the 200 to 225 possible rooms.

Just went by the place ten minutes ago on the monorail. Really taking shape. Should note that while the wet play area is being installed in the same construction project as the DVC buildings, I would say it is in no way a "DVC building amenity." It's about twice as close to the existing GF, as it is to the new construction GFV.

So both accommodations will use the same play area, but it's physically much closer to the existing hotel than to the new DVC building. DVC would be more honest when they market this, to say "the wedding chapel is a DVC amenity" than the new wet play area, if proximity is the guide.

It does appear that they may have a new quiet pool dug out, on the side of the new villas opposite the GF hotel (poly side). Too early to tell for sure, but it looks like it. Why else would they need a "retention pond" small shape right by seven seas lagoon, after all?

I sure hope you are right with a quiet pool!!! I really think the resort needs it, in additional to the children's splash area, with the flux in rooms. The pools have been crowded enough in the past.
