Even AKV has a small gym, but a gym all their own. I don't understand why VGF can't do that.

I wouldn't be surprised to see GFV get their own check- in area either due to the distance between the two buildings and in light of the new change at BLT.

Disney is adding a covered walkway from the Main Building to the DVC building.

The fitness center at gf is already in a building adjacent to the new vgf building, much closer to the dvc building than any of the gf rooms, so it wouldn't really make sense to add a new fitness center to me. Plus, they will want the dvc people heading into the building with the spa...

Say you want a vacation thats 150 points a year. You will have that many points every year, but here is the best use of points.

Year 1.(2012) Stay at BCV 150 points. Use current BCV points (100 )and borrow 50 from Future(2013) Bank GF points(50 for 2012)

Year 2. (2013) Stay at GF 150 points. Use Banked(50 from 2012), Current(2013), and Future(2014). Bank BCV points (50 for 2013)

Year 3. (2014) Stay at BCV 150 points. Use banked (50 from 2013), and Current (100). GF points were borrowed into 2013.

This gives you your 11 month window each year.
Thank you so much for explaining this so clearly!! Now I see the value of a small purchase. I didn't know borrowed and banked pts could be used at the 11mo date.

Banked/borrowed points can be used 11 months out provided they are from the resort you want to book. In other words, if you want to book BCV 11 months out you can use current UY BCV points and/or BCV points that have been banked or borrowed. If you want to book GF 11 months out you will need GF points. Those GF points could be current, banked or borrowed points as long as they are GF points.

The covered walkway was shown on the drawings and blueprints.

That is great to hear! Thank you for the info!! When my ds played a lot of tennis there with the pro we were told to park by the spa and walk in. That was a long hot walk in the sun (not to mention rain) all the way to the GF. Having it covered will be much more enjoyable for all.
