The Villas at Disney's Grand Californian Owners Group

I am not sure if anyone has already started a thread for this or not, but I am so excited about buying into VGC on day one that I just had to have a place to discuss it.

Please reply to this thread and let us all know if you bought into the VGC and how many points you ended up with. Also, if you happen to have the chance to take any photos of the villas as they are being completed, post them here as well. I know that I can't wait to see how they are progressing and I assume other owners would like to see the pictures as well.

If you are an excited new owner at VGC like I am, reply to this thread and tell the world!


- By the way, we ended up buying 120 points (and I just can't wait to use them!)

Us too! DH got us 480 points yesterday. We already made 2 ressies with the developer points at the GC hotel for Valentine's day and the summer. Yeee haaaaw.

I cannot wait to be able to stay in a 1BR though. The hotel suites are really expensive.

Bought 200 points last week. I am so happy! I have waited for more than 2 years for this!

Congratulations and welcome home to all the new VGC owners!

I'm here and have been waiting for this for a long time. We bought 105 points but I'm still very grateful and excited because that's more than we had originally planned (75-ish). I'm having a great time figuring out the many ways we can use these points and our WDW points over the coming years. We are 3 day weekend people at DLR and 7-8 nights people at WDW. Can you tell we live on the West Coast? LOL. We also travel other places during the year and so we want to keep our ownership share within reason and save our resources for seeing the world with our girls. One and maybe once in a while 2 shorter Disney trips per year is perfect for us.

We've booked our DP's at GCH for next week! We had a trip scheduled already and the timing worked out beautifully. My girls and I are taking my mom for her birthday. She hasn't been to DLR since 1975 (my first trip)!

I'll snap some pics when I'm there next week. But FYI, micechat dot com always has a nice selection of updated ones, too.

One more tidbit: Our last name is the same as one of the Disney characters and so this was always meant to be. I never in a million years thought my sensible DH would ever go for something like DVC. I wuv him!

220 here. Hope to stay this Thanksgiving. Going to WDW for Christmas and hope to stay at BLT. At Disneyland you only needed to buy 100 points at AKV or BLT to become a founding member, so I need to use those BLT points somewhere.
