Yep, the DLR dining plan is definitely not worth the extra cost.

Late to this thread, but fran, if you'll forgive me for a little online dropping of the eaves, are you still planning on going to the VGC June 5-7?

We decided we would go ahead and use the room. We have a friend who needs a lot of Disney Education. We did a three night trip in February and barely scratched the surface so we decided, we'll take her back again.

I have 202 points in holding from canceling my May WDW trip, I don't want to lose any more!

She has a pretty good friend, I'd say.

I was curious because I've been looking the last two weeks to rent out points for a studio/one-bedroom at the VGC some time in that first week of June--my wife and I are going June 2 through June 8 for my birthday and are expecting to meet six other members of my family over there--and have had no luck whatsoever finding any availability.

Not just at that time, but for the next six months.

Now we're going to try for late December as soon as the seven-month booking window opens for non-DVC members and see where that gets us. Maybe we'll have better luck for our anniversary, who knows!

I hope you and your friend have a magical time. I really am rather envious. That resort is spectacular. I keep telling my wife, "One day, one day we'll stay there." It's been two years now, and she's tired of hearing it from me.

Originally I said it would be CRAZY to buy points at the VGC, we live in Long Beach 25 minutes away at best and certainly no more than an hour with traffic. However, of all the DVC preoperties we have more points here than any other resort and still want more points!!!!!

I know it's crazy, but I have become addicted to staying during F&W and and lots of other events that happen periodically throughout the year!

Speaking of Carthay...I forget how long in advance WOC dining reservations can be made..60 days? or is it 30? We want to try the Carthay WOC dining thing and am sure will need to book on the dot of the day we can.

Quick question - do DVC members have to pay for parking while staying at the Grand Californian Villas?

It is free parking for DVC members unless something has changed since December.

That's odd.
I have not had to pay for self-parking for any VGC visit. Most recently March of this year

Plus, let me add, we stayed at PP on points last year as well and didn't pay for parking then either. When we checked in the CM made a point to tell us DVC took care of the parking fee for members.

Jack,
Didn't you rent points though? Those who rent points do not get the perks of the DVC members.

I did.. I got the "welcome home", I was given hotel keys that said "DVC Member", I was treated like royality the number of times I have been there...asked the wife to find the bill and we did pay for parking, it was Valet...my mistake..renters do get member priledges.
