I recommend making a room request, and early check also helps
Thanks so much!

We will be staying in the VGC resort April 2,3,and 4. I have bought park hoppers already (paper print out). I was wondering if they can put them on the room keys when we check in.

Also, we are staying in a 2 bdrm villa and I requested upper floor, park view. Should I be more specific?

4 weeks to go until our first trip!!

The printout will be converted to a ticket at the park entrance turnstile. DLR does not combine room keys with park tickets.

I recommend sending a list of specific room numbers
Are you in a dedicated or lock-off?

Question!

We won't be checking in until late in the evening (7 or 8 pm). Will it do any good to request particular room numbers or will we just be getting what is left?

Nonsuch, I'll have to call MS to find out what kind of room we have. How do I send the list to them? Is that annoying to them, do you think?

Is there a list somewhere in this thread about which 2 bedroom villas to request depending on the type?

Rooms are assigned days in advance, but might be reassigned on the check in day. I suspect a guest checking in early, might be able to get a requested room reassigned to them.

Requesting a room can't hurt, but in my experience early check in also helps

The room type should be available online
I send the request via email. It should only take a minute to copy the request into the reservation, so MS should not be annoyed. Whoever assigns the villas at the Grand does try to meet requests.

There might be, but I will create a new one for you
It would likely be easier to get a request filled for a dedicated rather than a lock-off.

FIRST DVC VGC Trip

Doing the happy dance. I just booked a Deluxe Studio for FEB '13 for the first three nights at VGC for our first ever stay there as members. Will book another three nights in a one bedroom tomorrow morning.

We've stayed at the Grand Cal as hotel guests many times - it feels MUCH better now knowing we are going "home." Can't wait!! Only 11 more months.


Anyone want to weigh in if there are certain view/location/room requests I should consider. I welcome the knowledge of the pro's!

Ooops!! I just looked at my reservation. We are staying in a 1 bedroom, not a 2. After all these years as a family of 6, I forgot that only 4 of us will be there.

So, can you help with with 1 bedroom villa room requests? Thanks!

We'll be there at the same time! Yesterday I booked 6 nights in a two bedroom. You're going to love it there. We've stayed in a villa facing east and loved the sounds of the birds, even though they were recorded, but if you want a park view, go for the fifth or sixth floors facing south.

Request high floor, park view, near the elevator. This has gotten us the perfect theme park view for several of our trips.

Ok, for those VGC owners who like to plan WAY ahead... a few questions:
  • If your UY is Sep (like mine is) when will be the last time you have to pay dues?
Is it Jan 2059?
  • Also when is the last time you get points from your contract?
Is it Sep 2058? Sep 2059?
  • And can those points be banked into the following year?
