I wouldn't think you'd have a problem passing ROFL. We passed at 87, but that was back in 2011. I haven't kept up with Disney's purchasing habits lately.

Wow, $108 definitely seems like it should pass. We bought direct at $96 in 2009 (2008?), then picked up a contract resale at $82. I wish we could get another contract since I'm always running out of points and now that we're only a 5 hour drive away, I can see us running out of points even sooner, but at over $100/pt? Probably not going to happen. *Sigh*

Just we'll just have to be content with what we have at VGC. At least I'll know that if I ever need to unload my contracts, they've more than held their value.

I just passed 2 weeks ago at $90. Waiting for the closing docs now.

It was add on so we could do 1 bedrooms rather than studios more often.

I was surprised that it passed at that price.

Was that resale or direct?

Direct does not go through ROFR and costs $130/point.

I check in to the VGC tomorrow for 5 nights of much-needed vacation! Staying in a studio -- this is a solo trip, so I don't need or want anything larger -- and looking forward to exploring the parks! I haven't been to DLR since Carsland opened in DCA.

View from 5514

Last week I had my first villa facing the Redwood Creek Trail, villa 5514.
A one bedroom on the 5th floor.
Very quiet, there are no rooms above and the bedroom is not adjacent to another villa (only hallways and a maintenance closet). The balcony is also not adjacent to another balcony.

Window view:


View down toward Redwood Creek area:


View down toward pool:

Wow Nonsuch, those pictures and view are gorgeous! I hope to get that view one day ... I've had the WOC view several times and the pool view, too, so I'm just missing the Redwood view from my collection!

We had this exact room in December. I had to walk around the hallways to make sure what I thought was right - as you said, very quiet and private inside and out.

We spent some time sitting and watching kids play on the bridge in the Redwood Creek area.

A very peaceful setting, except during WOC, from which I don't think there's any escape!

I think I like the Redwood Creek views better than the PP view... maybe!

Make a view request, this villa was far down my request list.

I booked this 1 bedroom 11/24/12 and it was the last 1 bedroom available. At that time, there were only two 3-day reservations for March. If view request priority is based on order of booking, I would have very low priority.

My view request was:
Quote:
Prefer a high floor with Paradise Pier Park View.
The room order of preference is: 6502, 5508, 4508, 5502, 4502, 3508,
3502, 5514, 4514, 3514, 2522, 2508, 2502, 2514
I received #8 on my request list.
I still prefer a WOC view, but might move 5514 up on my request list.

The hallway that wraps around the bedroom is only to access the second floor of the grand villa, so it is seldom used.
