Purchasing DVC on Disney Cruise. Is This A True Statement?

OK, we are finally ready to take the plunge into DVC since they built the Grand Floridian Villas. Since resale is not an option for some time, we plan on purchasing direct. As you know, Disney is not offering any incentives currently, so a friend of mine said the best place to purchase is on a Disney Cruise. Any one recently cruise and know what they offer on-board? Thank you for any insights.

My understanding is that is no longer true, the incentives for VGF are the same everywhere.

I think the offer will be the same. What you might get is an onboard credit for your purchase.

I'm happy to dance with you
I have 2 opinions
We had tried usual things to keep them away, including something like coyote urine, it is sold in hardware stores by us

I think that's it, just the OBC.

When I cruised on the Fantasy in July there was no onboard credit for buying at the Grand Floridian. There were no incentives either.

We just got off of the Fantasy and bought DVC. The only incentives were for AKL and Aluani.

We were on a disney cruise in April and the incentives were the same as those we were told today at WDW. AK has incentives and VGF do not.

What were the incentives for Aulani, if you don't mind my asking?

I went to one on the Fantasy last November. They were offering incentives on Animal Kindgom Villas. I dont think they are offering anything much different then other places.

Hi we just purchased DVC on the Disney Fantasy 2 weeks ago. (September 14) I'm not sure what GFV specials is but we bought AKV. We got $150 per point off any point purchase over 160 points. A $1000 stateroom credit or you can apply it to purchase (we did this) and we get this years use year points. Our use year is in April so we got all the 160 points now (bank in Nov) and get the next set in April. No additional fees due. 320 points is another cruise for us!!! Hope this helps!!

Is there a decimal point missing in the bolded part above? I thought AKV cost $150 per point without incentives, so $150 off per point minus $150 per point cost would equal $0 per point.
The regular incentives for purchases over 160 pts. @ AKV are $10 off per point + $1000 off the total. Was the cruise incentive more than the $10 off per point offered to the general public?

We just got off the Fantasy 2 weeks ago and they offered great discounts and $1,000 credit for Animal Kingdom but none for VGF. I asked about VGF and was told there would be no discounts or deals for VGF since it has been the fastest selling DVC resort.

I think I would "purchase" at least 200 points at $0. How about $6 off per point for maintenance fees? I might take 1000 or more.

We bought VGF on the Fantasy in mid-June and, as others have said, the only perks were being offered on AKV and AUL. We decided to buy on the ship though because we did not have to hassle with getting our signatures notarized as we otherwise would. That was our "perk."

We didn't need to have our signatures notarized to buy (non-cruise purchases).
