Hello all! I'm so excited for my trip the first week of October! It's gonna be our first Disneyland vacation! I did read the thread with the pics from different rooms, but I was wondering if anyone could recommend a 2 BR with a view of WOC? I'm guessing 5506 or 5500? Like I said, I'm counting down days until we check in and can't wait to visit! Thanks!

6500 and 6506 face that way as well. You'll be able to see WOC but not all the details, because of the angle. Can also watch from the Paradise View Terrace on the sixth floor.

My recommendation:
5506, 4506, 3506, 3522, 6500, 5500, 4500, 3500

My reasons:
x506 have a good angle to view WOC
3522 even better angle, but trees will be a greater obstruction.
x500 still a good WOC view

New owners at Grand Cal here 100pts. We have been DVC members since 98 and have 425pts. at BW and 200pts. at BLT.
We are so excited about having the Grand Cal as a premium property!
We probably visit every 2-3yrs with this small amount of points by banking but at least we will be able to get in.

Although you are new owners @VGC you certainly have enough points all together to make reservations at the 7 month mark & 2 bdrm / grand villa are most likely easier to book. We have 160 pts w/VGC & 450 pts. w/BCV and can book 7 months out when needed.

Hi everyone!

We just heard that Disney has waived ROFR on a resale we are buying. Soon we will be the happy owners of 200 December UY points. I am anxiously awaiting the closing and getting into the system too see what is available in the somewhat near future. We know that we definately want to go next November/December sometime so will be booking once the 11 month window opens for that trip next year. Would be a dream to go this year too, but I know chances are slim.

Just wanted to say hi to all of you. I've been reading and dreaming for awhile and you are all such a helpful bunch!

I sent an email request to member services this morning, cancelled a few days and added a view request. As usual, DVC sent an immediate automated replay. Surprisingly, the request was handled in only 1 hour
(some previous email requests took several days to be completed)

I cancelled October 7-9, but only the 9th shows as available online -- I assume someone's waitlist came through

When you check-in there's already one detergent box in the washer. I think you can buy more down at the guest laundry on the first floor.

Hi everyone,
We are staying at VGC in December (our first Disney vacation as DVC members) and I'm just wondering the best way to put in a room request for our 1 bedroom villa? I would love to get a room on a high level with a DCA view. Can I call member services or is there an email address to submit my request?
