Ok, so I know they're totally sales and want to make a deal, but when we talked to a guide a month or so back we decided to see what VGF would do before waitlisting for BC/BW/BLT (hubs only wants monorail or walkable resorts). Guide said he had no way to know for sure, no actual info, but that given his history with them and what he's seen, he felt like it would be about $150/pt when the incentives are taken into account at initial opening.

Given the more and more solid rumors about the Poly, I think they might have to do something along those lines - not that there aren't a ton of GF lovers, but Poly fans (like us!) are pretty rabid. My husband is now getting so excited about the Poly that he's thinking we hold off a year just to see. (I of course am lobbying for a small contract now and add on a larger Poly when that happens)

We are on the BWV waiting list at $125 per point. We missed the $115 cut off. So, $150 per point for VGF would be tempting if it turns out to be that low. We started at $90.00 per point for a BLT resale that got gobbled up in ROFR. Every week that goes by I appear to find a new angle to spend even more money for points!

Although it makes no financial sense, the other thing that would be nice about VGF for our first purchase is for at least a year or two, it will be the price everyone else had to pay to buy the resort (due to no resale market at the start). Although we love BWV, it is hard to pay such a high price for an older resort. Again, no financial sense to that, but it does play a mental game on us!

First you need to see if you love the resort, view and rooms.

Then depending on how sales are going, DVD will play with the prices. You may pay a price and the next month, those buying may get a free cruise.

You also need to know that new resorts always have issues, construction/design issues and lack of CM training. When BLT opened we followed Bell Service around for 20 minutes looking for our room.

Very funny! What caught my eye is how separate the VGF are from the main hotel. BWV are nicely integrated into the full complex. If VGF lacks it's own coffee service, etc., it means a walk outside just to get our morning coffee (which is a ritual for us on our trips!). We always just chat with our coffee why our older kids are still sleeping in the morning. Funny, when they were small at Disney they always woke us up, now we wait for them to get up!
