There is a thread on another forum that said Jim Lewis announced 'there is a proposed DVC at AKL, but plans were subject to change' ????

Orlando Sentinel link

I really thought the Contemporary was going to be the next location. Guess I was wrong!

This is going to create some wonderful opportunities for people that want to buy into other DVC resorts as I have a feeling a lot of current members will be selling previous contracts to buy into AKV instead.

"Mum" is the word at MS this morning re: AKV

I just got off the phone with MS this minute. I was calling about my upcoming ressie, not making a call specifically to ask about the AKV annoucnement. However, while I had them on the phone...

Anyway, he avoided and evaded the question in so many ways...we were both actually laughing at the umm...."creativity" of his answers. They have clearly been coached on what NOT to say. I assume that this is because they will be making their own annoucement shortly.

That may explain why I can't find anything about it on the official DVC web site!

Here is the information posted on Deb's site...

Thanks, Deb and Allearsnet.com!

Disney Vacation Club to expand to Animal Kingdom Lodge

The Disney Vacation Club announced on October 11, 2006 that the Animal Kingdom Lodge would be the home of the next DVC resort at Walt Disney World. Rumors have been circulating for some time that the Contemporary was next on the list, but in recent weeks the focus had shifted to Animal Kingdom Lodge.

The first phase will be the opening of 134 remodeled existing rooms at the resort in late 2007. The next phase will be the opening of a new building containing 324 villas.

I just posted on another thread that I think there will be tons of older contracts on the resale market due to current members trying to trade their points for AKV. As for potential new members, it will be interesting to see how many contracts are snapped up by existing members first (doesn't DVC usually offer any new properties to current members first?). When I first saw the announcement, I thought a lot of brand new SSR-owners might be upset that they didn't wait. However, they may have the last laugh as the new price-per-point might increase dramatically, plus I doubt any incentives will need to be offered to get people to buy AKL. It could be that anyone purchasing right now will have to lowest initial buy-in for quite some time.

We will stay at AKLV, but don't plan to buy. It is the usual draw - to buy where you will want to be the most, and we are an Epcot family. So BCV & BWV work for us.

I never knew about codes to get discounted rooms at WDW. Yet, a few years ago, before we joined DVC, we got a discounted room at AKL ( It was just on Disney's site, I was trying to book on line) and we stayed there and had a nice time. I wondered then if the "out of the wayness" was the reason we got the discount. I think a DVC there would attract people. On last year's members cruise, I didn't even think twice about the special discounts given to members on SSR, but if it had been of this new DVC, well, yes, we would have bought some. We really do have "enough" points, but we could be presuaded with a preconstruction promotion to buy some points. What would really do it, would be if the 1 bedrooms were really meant to accomodate 5, since the 2 bedrooms accomodate 9.

I am glad to see the size of the resort is something larger than VWL and BCV. I'm also hoping for a wonderful pool, the AKL pool is sort of blah IMO.

As far as non DVC people, yes, I think a DVC at the AK will sell fast.

Is this also why we (current members) just got offered $15 off per point at SSR for 115 point add ons???

hey I think it was the poll we did here....

AKL and Cont were neck and neck - I can't say for sure - but I think it proved to DVC that AKL was very, very popular with DVC members.

besides I still think someone on the board of Disney doesn't want the Cont in DVC - it was the first WDW resort and to some people it should always just remain a WDW resort.

remember that once AKLV opens (looks like something next year) no more AKL on the WDW resorts list for points.

so no complaints. just remember that once this opens you can't get AKL with DVC points again.
