There is a whole section on the boards devoted to DVC.

From a fellow DVC owner.

The two most rampant rumors are DVC Poly (considering how well BLT sold this seems very likely) and that area over by Ft. Wilderness (I know DVD has taken out papers with the county on that area but done nothing with it). Is this about something different than those?

Personally I think the Poly would be the PERFECT location for DVC to go next. I own at BLT, but the Poly has long been my fav resort!!

Got inside on a Polynesian being added after Floridian is done.
Also seen the plans for another tower by Contemporary.

Will be getting the inside info On discovery island tomorrow.
Have seen the final stages of a Avatar land along with a Water way from Animal kingdom lodge through western way to a totally new unnamed park . the waterway continues to Epcot. Also seen a complete set of tracks , not monorail however but its definitely the same type of concept It ended at the curve connection by the monorail going over western and world drive

I find most of this highly doubtful, especially after reading through this:

I'm assuming "tracks" of any kind are related to the possible high speed train FDOT was/is apparently discussing (pp 3B-56 in the RCID 2020 Development Plan for reference...I don't have enough posts to put a link...that's what I get for lurking all these years). Discovery Island has been basically untouched since it closed. Why now, of all times, would they do something with it? There are so many other things they are probably focusing on right now...that tiny island would be the least of their worries, IMO.

I wouldn't be surprised by a Poly DVC, but I doubt many people would. And I highly doubt Contemporary would add another tower so soon after Bay Lake. The Garden View rooms there don't seem to be in terribly high demand, so what is the point? There is still BLT DVC for sale directly from Disney...

Unnamed park...I will believe that when I am driving through the 5th gate. Until then, it's a rumor all too often spoken.

You just made the point. If no one wants the garden views, replace them. It doesn't matter that DVC still has points to sell at BLT; that didn't stop the Villas at the Grand Floridian.

HOWEVER... I doubt that a second tower could be built there. There's not as much acreage there as was available to build BLT. The water bridge runs very close to the garden wing.

I guess my thoughts were the tower would not be DVC, just a replacement for the Garden Wing (since I can't picture where else there would be room) and in my mind that wouldn't be a popular enough location since theme park views would be extremely limited if available at all. And an "extra" Contemporary building just doesn't have the ring of Bay Lake DVC Villas.

The garden wing space is pretty equal to the BLT property.
