I have one now and had no problem getting it on points at one year out.

That's funny, it's all in the person making the journey. We rode our scooters from the Hilton to DTD last year for dinner the first night, and thought, "Wow! If we had to go this far back to our hotel room, we'd barely make it!"

Last time I was with a group of about 10 and we stayed at Candy Cane Inn.
I remember seeing the people stroll in and out of the Hilton and told myself...next time I am staying THERE! Needless to say, yesterday I booked a 2Q Disney View room at the advance pre-paid price of $175/night. I think the villas are too far to walk. My poor feet and legs were very tired after a 12+ hour day at the Expo. I use my VGC points for park days.

Alison, we should plan on a mini-meet in the lobby again - it was fun. We have 11 months to do it!

DEFINITELY! It was fun last time, we'll have to see what they have planned for the Sorcerers this time. I think there was mention of a show floor tour, but not sure what else. Bret is going to be there again as well as tinkcollector, Marci I think. We saw her at Destination D.

We've been struggling with some serious health issues in the last year and hope they are behind us in the next few weeks so that we get back to enjoying our trios and D23 events. So far we've canceled three WDW vacations in 13 months. Hoping to take the rebooking in January. Plus the Wonder cruise is paid for and non refundable, though we did take out insurance.

I'm hoping maybe a few folks would like to get together, even if it's smaller than last time, it was nice to meet you and your daughter and finally put a face to a name. I still confuse you with toocherie even though I know who you are. As soon as I see the pic in your sig I'm unconfused, but if you take that out I'll be lost!

What are the odds I'll be able to get a studio at VGC for a few nights following D23? I want to to attend the expo, and I'm considering all hotel options. The likely choice is a hotel next to the convention center, but I'd like to stay at VGC if possible. I'm betting that it's fully booked for the three nights of the expo, but what about afterwards? I'll happily switch hotels if the VGC is available. I hope to spend a few extra days in Anaheim to see DL/DCA.

I can't call until the 7 month mark, so for now it's an academic question.

DH and I booked a studio at VGC for 8/5-8/12. We've stayed at Grand Californian for both expos. In 2009 we used the transportation from the resort which was very convenient. Last year we walked to and from the convention center. It was about a 20 minute walk each way but thankfully we had no problems.

Last year I didn't call in time & ended up staying at VGC both before & after the Expo but had to move to DL hotel during the Expo as those nights were all booked. Last time I checked there was no availability at VGC Thursday through Sunday nights in a studio but anything before or after those nights was still available. Fortunately I planned ahead this year and have my room booked already for next year. I just have to decide if I want to stay longer after Expo instead of before.
