    It's the Victorian style that Lillian Disney liked and the style that The Hotel Del Coronado, the hotel that Disney copied, has. So, it will most probably be continued in the villas there.

    Will the only place to go see the new GFV be at SSR?
    Thanks.

    They may have a model unit available at the Grand Floridian itself. They had one sporadically available at Bay Lake Tower back when it was the primary sales target for DVC.

    But SSR is home to the main sales center. The GF model there will be available on a regular basis, and viewable months before the GF villas open.

    I doubt it will, in the short term. The last time I passed by the model (Disneyland Half, around Sept) the model was still the Aulani one. Isn't the west coast still trying to push Aulani points? If they were re-modeling the model to be GFV it probably would be under construction by now.

    The interior of the Del is much different than the GF:

    The rooms in the Victorian building have been redone to be more modern though:

    Most of our local magazines are advertising Aulani over the others.

    I loved my DVC stay at the Hotel Del Coronado (A perk from a point loaded resale purchase). Though I will probably not purchase (never say, never) GF points, I"m looking forward to not only seeing the model but also staying there a couple of nights too! :goodvibes

    The GF is simply a beautiful resort, somewhat reminds me of the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island where they shot Somewhere in Time! It will be interesting to see DVC's interpretation!

    The Contemporary/BLT are not my thing, but thankfully DVC has enough variety to satisfy the many likes and tastes of its members!

    The models will probably not open until sales begin and there is no date for that yet.

    No but in another thread it was mentioned that GFV has its sales license now so probably not too long.

    I was at the preview center two weeks ago and our guide Wallace stated that they were working on GF Villa model.

    Good. Well, now I think I will wait for my TA cruise in May to buy Grand Floridian points. I sure hope they are for sale by then!!
