There isn't any double points, you would get Oct 2013 points.

You would get 2013 points. There are no 2012 VGF points.

The guide tried to tell me that some Use Years were selling fast (probably April?) but I'm sure you can get October.

I think I must have misunderstood her about the points, or maybe she just meant that you get the first set of points before the resort opens and before you've paid maintenance fees.

Yes, your points are active as of August 1, 2013. The double points you keep talking about don't exist. The resort wasn't certified until April 2013, so that was the first month of UYs to get points.

If you were buying another resort with an August UY, then you'd get 2012 points because you are in your 2012 UY. But there was no 2012 UY for VGF, so no 2012 points.

That makes sense. MF are prorated for 2013 because the resort won't open until Oct.

Same Boat Here

Debate and Pro/Con list currently happening in house with these same topics! My wife and I love EPCOT and would want to go there a lot. However, with kids in the future, would it make more sense to stay closer to MK and jump on the monorail to EPCOT? If Poly came available, that would be our dream home resort.

Never stayed at DVC, but renting in March at BCV for first time. We're putting off actually buying until we try (or that's what we're saying now). Rooms in VGF look amazing, hard to decide! Any advice?

Totally understand!
We almost bought BCV but we're very excited about VGF.

Exactly the same spot as us, except that our babies are in the present! I am in no place to give advice but I bet VGF will sell out. It's changing our strategy in that I think we'll start with VGF and then buy resale at BWV; before we were going to do BWV & SS

We're in a similar boat (no kids yet!), we started with a BWV contract because the Epcot resort area is where our heart is and I knew our yearly trips would be there. We've since added small contracts at BLT and VGF and will alternate years at those. For your first contract, buy where you think you'd like to stay most often and then use that contract to figure out where else would work for you. One resort likely won't be perfect for you as life happens and things change, but you can have a good idea of where you think you'd like to be.
