I too purchased 3 contracts at the VGF on yesterday! Open house was packed and the food was great. We purchased 1) 50 point contract and 2) 100 point contracts one was for a fixed week. We went with week 52!

hoping to buy as well

being in Australia we cant purchase thru Disney unless we are physically in the USA to sign the paperwork, so we'll have to wait til sept to get our 2 x 60 point contracts at GFV....cant wait

thanks guys for mentioning split contracts, hadn't thought of it before but is such a great idea

This appears new to me. 100 pts would not buy a full week at VGF around Christmas. Were you able to buy a partial week using the fixed week option?

The standard view was a studio and it was 139 points hence a need for the 50 extra points

Congrats on your purchase. What is a fixed week option? I know other timeshares operated this way but had not heard of Disney doing that. So I assume you pay for a week at a certain level that you have to use it each year at that time and level.

Yes, your week is your week, no worries about getting a reservation! There was only 1 more fixed week studio available standard view for week 52( as told by guide)

I have seen a couple other mentions of a Feb Use Year not being available.
Is this only for non-members/new buyers?

We have a Feb UY and are current members. Even if I was tempted to buy VGF today this would stop me in my tracks. Can someone explain how this works? TIA.

Wow, that is a great week for 139 pts. I can see why only one is left. Great grab! Congrats!

You can still get a Feb UY, but your first points will be Feb 2014. Your MF would be pro rated until then. To get 2013 points, the earliest UY (on the calendar) is April for VGF.

You can get a February use year. But you can't get 2013 points for it. Same goes for March. Only use years of April or later get 2013 points.
