Calling today to be put on the wait list for point purchase. We're not interested in buying til they have 2 BR (even lockoffs) available since our brood (officially now...we're 5) needs the larger accomodations.

Wonder what the price per point will be......

How long did it take from the SSR announcement to publish a pt scale and able to enter into contracts for pre-construction?

At 400+ units, I don't think it will be that hard to get reservations even if you don't own there. It will be twice the size of VWL or BCV.

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...

Almost everything after the initial announcement is pure speculation, and ain't it just grand??? Imagine how much fun these boards are going to be over the coming months!
I can already hear the Dis-boards a'buzzin!

Maybe they will put a fold out chair in the living room similar to what they have put in the All Star Suites?

I am so excited about this that I am actually giggling. A giggling 42 year old woman! I have already called my guide and I am going to get on her list of people to add on as soon as she calls me back. Woo Hoo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My guess is a daybed somewhere...maybe the MBR. The daybeds in the new Polynesian rooms are very nice and fold up into a couch when not needed as a bed....sort of futon style but much nicer than futons I've seen.

Tammy - Add me onto the giggling list, and I'm 40 (well soon to be 41). AKL is the where I would want to do an add-on, so I can't wait until they start selling shares.

Tigger ,I stayed at AKL 5th floor. It had a great view of the savanah. The other floors seemed to have a nice view as well. There aren't many obstacles in the way (ie trees , brush etc.) I just loved it there. The whole feel of the resort grows on you, the colors, the music, the lighting, the smells...Ahhh

There was some information on the boards several weeks ago about the SSR theatre being converted to model rooms. I believe this had been confirmed by someone in DVC.......not sure though. We're heading to SSR on Saturday and I just placed a call to our guide, Karen Guyder, to let her know I'll be stopping by for further info on AKV. Hopefully, we'll be able to take a peek at the models while we're there!!!

Oh, the fold out chair is a good guess too.

DVCGammy, it is fun isn't it.

I wonder if DVC is going to offer preferred view rooms and standard view rooms like they have at BW? That resort would seem to lend itself to that sort of split.

We loved the 5th floor. Stayed there in a deluxe King bed room, with Arusha Savannah view, out on Zebra Trail back in '01, just after they opened. You are a bit more removed from the animals, but you also have a more expansive view, IMHO. Of course, we had cameras with very good zoom capabilities, so that helped out, too.

And remember, the remodels are only Phase I. You buy early, use those acomodations to your advantage, and then use the new facility once it's built.
