It would only be a part of the total project, though I heard it was to be Grand Villas.

Pretty soon the GF and Poly will touch and merge to become the Grand Polynesian.

Oh, I am sure this is just the tip of the iceberg in terms of their long-range planning.

It was reported on the DIS podcast. I do think it is part of a much larger plan. This will be the one resort I will buy direct. Having fun reading about all the speculation!

We've been hoping for something official from Disney regarding Poly DVC for quite awhile now. Our earmarked funds will be plopped down as soon as it happens.

I'm not saying it won't happen since I haven't listened all the way through this week's podcast yet. But there's a big difference in the clear waters below those Bora Bora bungalows and the murky waters of the Seven Seas lagoon. And what about the critters in the waters? I don't think I want to wake up to an alligator or water snake on the dock at my bungalow ...

Perfect! I love it when he says that, but to be honest I don't stay out of the lakes/lagoons, unless those Sea Raycers and boats don't count. Hey, I wonder if the bungalows will each have their own slip?

Maybe each bungalow will have it's own private pool...

I don't understand it either. The whole appeal of over-the-water bungalows are the see-through glass floors revealing the sparkling clear water below and the ability to jump right into the water. I'm not really sure of the appeal to the bungalows over just staying in a theme park view club level room. Both have a view of the same thing. Privacy? I guess. I would think it would be less private with a large ferry and numerous Friendship boats tooting their horns and carrying hundreds of guests by, the hoards of people on the beach before the Electric Water Parade/fireworks, and the rented boats whizzing past.

I am all for Poly DVC, though. I can only rent OKW, BLT, and AKV points for so long!

There is a reason he says that, I have seen an alligator while at the boat dock at the Poly, even watched the water police chase him away from the beach area. It says like a cool idea but count me out, the water is too nasty to enjoy and between the gators and snakes well let's just say I'm good.

Oh, I know. What's shocking is that you have to tell people that. If it's not a pool or the beach, I am not going anywhere near the water in Florida.

The price will be a kidney, spleen, both legs, 1 arm, and your liver. That's the AP discounted price!

TA! I cannot see us buying any additional points at any new DVC resort given the price they are charging now. Actually, we have enough points for WDW. If we ever add on it will most likely be HHI via resale.

Count me in, and I will bring a pole and rope to hang some chickens off my balcony to create my own Gator Jumparoo show.
