I am here now. Weather yesterday was lovely, they are forecasting wind today. This batch of grandkids had never been before and are loving it. Son's family's room was ready by 11:00 am (hadn't been occupied night before.) Room 4509, pool view. Our room was ready at 4:30, 4510, PP view technically, but view is restricted by building jutting out on left side. Decent view of Mickey's Wheel of Death (which son's family rode and liked, although son did admit to being scared when swinging gondola swung out over water).
Love the studio villa. Some of us went up to the 6th floor viewing area and as reported projections are not visible, but music is piped in and visuals are still just great and impressive. There were probably no more than 20 people up there, but you really need that rail view to see up there as well as at the actual show.
Also, park closed at 8:00 with only one show scheduled, but WOC was going on after 10:00 pm so either testing or another show..
My bathtub issues continue! Every time I've been here, either at the villas or in regular hotel room, there is a bathtub issue. Either no plug at all, or the plug won't hold water. I forgot to check and naturally, when I go in for bath time, no plug. Call maintainence and one guy comes up..hmmm..goes out, comes back with another guy..hmmmm. They leave, come back and bring a rubber plug thing because they don't have the regular plug part thing they need, but will come back to fix. So, 1 hour, 2 techs and 3 visits. I don't get why they have such issues with tubs here. Still, very very minor gripe and really more puzzling than upsetting.
Crowds are low! walk on for the most part. Great visit time

Jack the pseudo-DVC member, just wanted folks to know I did secure my points and reservation for August 2011 today. I got a great deal for the weeks stay in a 1 bedroom again. I can not thank the gentleman with the points enough.

Thanks to all who contacted me.

I would love to get my own, I can even pay cash for the points but no one in the family is willing to pay maintenance after I croak, no one is willing to go to WDW since DVC is sold out. My kids are all college students from BA's to PhD programs.

This is a very important factor. When we finally could afford DVC, we sat down with our 20 something DDs and explained that they would be responsible for the MFs unless my DH and I live to be over 100. There wasn't any hesitation in their combined YES they would pay the MFs. Now if they had said no, there wouldn't have been any DVC for us.

Sorry for the bathtub saga, but you are there, and it sounds like you are having a great time. That's so cool!

DW and I have decided that at the point we can't or don't want to travel we'll sell our points for whatever we can get for them. Two of our daughters are teachers and one daughter is disabled. I don't expect them to be able to pay the MF. Our DVC ownership is for us, here and now.

DW and I are going to VGC in a couple of weeks. Really looking forward to the break from the snow!

DH had no interest in Disney (he was into fishing) so when I purchased my DVC contracts, they were put in my name and DD24's name. She shares my love of Disney and since the contracts are all paid in full, she will only be responsible for MF's once I am gone. And she can sell anytime if the fees are not in her budget. I am glad I did it that way since DH passed away in September. All the other joint accounts have had to be transferred to my name only, but DVC is not affected.

Does anyone know how to get rack rate prices for the VGC? I can get rack rates for all WDW DVC resorts, just not VGC. I keep a running total of what the rack rates are in comparison to our DVC point cost. Thanks.

If I recall, Jack had checked this out awhile back and the rack rate for a studio was $850 (before tax I assume) and a 1 BR was $1050...ridiculous, eh? but using those rates, think how fast my contracts will be at break even point
