Grand Floridian DVC?

Anyone hear, or read, when the GF DVC project will be completed?

I wonder how difficult it will be to actually get a reservation in there?

And, I wonder how many points it will take? Ugh. The thought makes me shiver.
Can't wait, though! I will give it my best to get in there, for sure.

My guess? More than BLT villas.

I figure opening between $160 & 170 a point but with discounts and the same points as BLT for comparable rooms and views.

I was in MK this afternoon and the word was fall of 2013. It seems to be coming along pretty well though!

Actually, I wasn't referring to buying into GF, more like how many points it would take to be able to STAY there. Our home resort is BW and SS. Hmmm, can't wait to stay at GF!

We are considering a September 2013 trip. Anyone have any info about whether or not they believe completion will happen prior to that? I know, I know, long shot at best ...

We are looking to rent points at Bay Lake for that trip to try out the villa experience, but I'd much rather park at the Grand. And, as I recall, when BLT first opened, the cash availability was really good for the first year.

Probably not open yet. I heard October or November.

Once a point chart is established (either 2013 or 2014 depending on actual opening), it should be available on the member website along with the other point charts.

I don't think any charts will be published until sales begin.
