I agree that initially, it'll be easier to book if you have points at AKLV, but at 450+ units, it will be almost as big as SSR and OKW and when complete, there'll be availability at the 7-month mark (more so, off-season).
I think it's great that it'll be large; I've wondered why DVD made the VWL so tiny.
Does anyone know if the expiration date will be the same as SSR, or maybe even later?
Obviously, TPTB have a lot of faith in the future of DVC!

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 think rumor was that it's in the old Theatre... My DH is going to Disney next weekend, I'm going to send him over to try to find the showcase rooms!

I just meant in comparison to the others. Obviously it's not mammoth like SSR.

I didn't get one either. There was a recent glitch in the site (I had to call MS last week because I could no longer log in). I just checked this morning and I was no longer signed up to receive emails. You may want to check your info too to make sure you're signed up. Don't want to miss any more exciting announcements!

I would guess that the "Master" bedroom will now have two queensized beds.

Even with the suggestion that the rooms will be bigger than the standard DVC property rooms I can't imagine they would make them any larger than the units in OKW.

Just speculation...

We will be staying at SSR in a week or so. I will be checking with our vacation guide while we are there to see if we can view the models. Doubtful, but you never know. I will ask him about the details as well, but you know how that goes. A lot of times we know information before the guides.

direct from DVC reservations

I was making reservations this morning for my vacation and I asked the CM
helping me if these "rumors" about AKV was true. She said that they are not allowed to say where the new resort would be but that Disney is building a new vacation club location. i asked about the news reports and she still would not confirm location. I guess that Disney is planning their own annoucement.

Hope this helps!

But that would make occupancy 10. What about a daybed in the MBR.....or somewhere else?
