I am thinking the layouts of the rooms will be just like all the other recent DVC resorts. I don't think they are going to change the room configuration for one resort.

We are most definately interested in adding on. I believe the initial price will likely be the lowest offered and will escalate to what the market will bear. So, as soon as the prices are anounced, we will likely jump on it.

I also think you're right on about potential DVCers that will now dive in. That is, of course, if any points are left to be had for non-members.

Where did you read that 9 will fit into the 2-bedroom?

Yes, I am willing to bet that this is the reason behind the $15 off promo. They need to sell out SSR. And I also agree that those who recently (or are now just) bought SSR may well get the best deals going for a while. Current members may, indeed, get a pre-construction price....but due to the popularity of this resort...hard to say. Then again, due to the size it might take a while to sell out...lol...I am contradicting myself before I even finish typing the thought!

It will be very interesting to watch the resale boards to see if people dump one resort in order to buy AKV. Those who want to buy into DVC but don't necessarily want AKV for their home resort may be able to get some great deals....

They may not change the room configuration, but the new AS Family Suites have chairs that convert to twin beds. It could be they will place those in the units. An earlier post said some of the villas would accomodate 9 or 15 people...that's the only way I can see nine people fitting in a 2bdrm...not sure about 15 in a GV unless maybe they put the chair/twin bed in each bedroom. It will certainly be nice for large families that have older kids that really can't share a bed anymore.

We, too, will be at SSR next week . Why do I get this vision of groups of people lurking around the resort wearing deerslayer caps and trench coats, with magnifying glasses to examine all clues???

In this picture from the family suites, the chair and ottoman both make into single beds...I have a feeling something similar to this is what they will be using if indeed the occupancy limits change.

On Oct. 18th there is a Disney press event scheduled in New York City. I'm sure it will be announced and discussed; maybe even some concept art will be displayed.

I like AKL but don't think I will buy into AKV. But I will definitely try a stay when it is complete.

I am wondering if the AKV will have their own pool. The pool at the lodge is not very big and the theming is poor. I hope if they do another pool that it have a jungle/animal theme.

I love the pool at BWV. The whole circus/ dumbo theme is great.

We leave in 9 days for OKW but had planned on stopping to see our Guide anyway and this will now be the top question on the list.

Hopefully we can report back with some information also.

I guess what I mean when I say layout (much like calypso alluded to) is more what furniture is in the room(s) that might allow one more person to stay there...and where is it located.

If it's one of those chairs, no matter where it is, we can set him up in the LR with his sisters...just in his own bed.

And then we're only left with the bathroom issue to decide on.

Note there is no info directly from Disney.
According to Disney, the time shares will be a mix of new construction and renovated accommodations in part of the Animal Kingdom Lodge. They'll feature African-inspired details and most will offer views of a savannah inhabited by a variety of animals.

That is direct enough for me. If Disney is talking to major media outlets about it then I would consider it credible.

I think it will stir interest for people who prefer the smaller DVCs attached to resorts rather than the freestanding condo style. Personally, I prefer the condo style units.

I agree with the OP. I expected that there would be a lot of excitement on the DVC Boards, but the amount of excitement on the Resort and other Boards was a surprise. Seems like a lot of people are now VERY interested in joining. Should be interesting.
