We are another family that won't sell either our SSR or BLT contracts for VGF. First off, we already own in the MK resort area and have access to the monorail, so there is no need for us to even consider buying into another MK resort area...we may try and book it at 7 months just to say that we stayed there and to check it out. We are interested in buying into one other resort and that is BCV because we love the location and the resort itself, other then that when we add on it will be with our existing resorts that we own.

The major downside to not owing at GFV will be December. I really feel that to get in during the time Christmas decorations are up, booking at 11 months will be necessary.

We will not be selling any points to buy at GF. May consider adding on to our AKV points however. That seems to be our favorite resort so far. We do look forward to staying at some other resorts in the future, namely BLT and BWV. Would love to stay at GF as well.

I fully understand the OP's lack of excitement toward BWV; they're definitely my least favorite in terms of aesthetics. That said, I wouldn't dump the points, especially since they were purchased at a discount via resale AND include all the old perks. Just use those points to stay elsewhere.

Grand Flo would be my second least favorite resort at WDW - too stuffy, and really not THAT nice when you think about similarly priced hotels outside of Disney, so I'd never pay the premium to stay there. Definitely would try to use points to try it out, though.
