But is it "AN OFFICIAL DVC ANNOUNCEMENT?"
I'm in Orlando right now, and last night the local news stations were reporting it as an official Disney announcement. They said that some rooms would open in about a year, with the full complex (approx 450 DVC rooms, restaurant, shops) to be finished in 2009.

Hmmmm......maybe I'll need to go back to work full-time.......
VWL has 136 villas
BCV has 205 villas
BWV has 383 villas

AKV is gonna be HUGE!!

I hope that 2009 is right. We won't be able to add on until 2008-- and I'd really love to add on at AKLV!!!!

Does this mean they are getting rid of the AK Concierge?? That was the best concierge service on Disney property IMHO.... that's too bad...

I wonder how they are going to do this with minimal disturbance to the animals?

When can we book AKL? Is AKL Concierge gone? How will 2 bedroom fit 9?

I know these questions are a bit early.... but if they are planning on opening units next Fall, then owners should start to be able to book within the next couple of months... that would lead me to believe sales will start soon & we should be able to book at the 7 month mark....

I'll be sad to see if AKL Concierge go, as it was a great concierge... maybe they re-located it?

I'm wondering how they will fit 9 into the 2 bedroom as well... will that mean that a 1 bedroom will sleep five? So many questions, so little information

I think HUGE might be a bit of a stretch, I am still betting it'll be hard to book without having home points there

It's also on Allearsnet.com, and that seals it for me. There are usually pretty conservative about what they post.

No way to know the answers to those questions until DVD announces the details. We can do a lot of speculating, but that's about it. I'm going to assume that the points needed for a ressie will be significantly more than at SSR.

Is this right? VAK room "sample" at SSR?

There are so many threads now, I'm not sure where I read this.

DVC has converted a part of SSR to showcase a VAK room? Does anyone know where this is, and if it is open? We're going back October 25 - 29, and I'd love to see it.

Thanks so much for any help!

I wonder if the point requirements will be similar to those at the BW preferred level? I wish they'd release more information...
