Even AKV has a small gym, but a gym all their own. I don't understand why VGF can't do that.

I wouldn't be surprised to see GFV get their own check- in area either due to the distance between the two buildings and in light of the new change at BLT.
Can you tell us why 10 days ?
I need to know also - want GFV (or is it VGF) ?
I'll be in Disney....
Disney is adding a covered walkway from the Main Building to the DVC building.
I am looking forward to seeing this resort!
Please keep us informed when you have some news. Very interested.
How did you know about the covered walkway ?
Have a great vacation !
Where are you staying ?
The fitness center at gf is already in a building adjacent to the new vgf building, much closer to the dvc building than any of the gf rooms, so it wouldn't really make sense to add a new fitness center to me. Plus, they will want the dvc people heading into the building with the spa...
Thank you so much for explaining this so clearly!! Now I see the value of a small purchase. I didn't know borrowed and banked pts could be used at the 11mo date.
Banked/borrowed points can be used 11 months out provided they are from the resort you want to book. In other words, if you want to book BCV 11 months out you can use current UY BCV points and/or BCV points that have been banked or borrowed. If you want to book GF 11 months out you will need GF points. Those GF points could be current, banked or borrowed points as long as they are GF points.
The covered walkway was shown on the drawings and blueprints.
Thanks for the info.
I must have missed the covered walkway and the drawings and blueprints.
That is great to hear! Thank you for the info!! When my ds played a lot of tennis there with the pro we were told to park by the spa and walk in. That was a long hot walk in the sun (not to mention rain) all the way to the GF. Having it covered will be much more enjoyable for all.
Thanks for the link. We are enjoying looking at the map.
If you ever see more info please post for us that may have missed it.
Dw thought GF was very snobby and has no interst in staying there. Hopefully GFC will be different but we really want poly dvc
Seeing that the # of units at GFV will only be 147, I think it will be difficult to get in at the 7 month mark. VWL has the second least amount of total units at 181.
I haven't stayed at VWL but I hear its difficult to book. So in keeping that in mind, if I have 100 points, I can bank and borrow and stay every 3rd year, which is OK with me!!
VWL has 138 "units" or a possible 181 rooms. And other than a few select times it's possible to book at 7 months out. I'm guessing that GFV will have no dedicated studios or 1 bedrooms and probably in the 200 to 225 possible rooms.
Just went by the place ten minutes ago on the monorail. Really taking shape. Should note that while the wet play area is being installed in the same construction project as the DVC buildings, I would say it is in no way a "DVC building amenity." It's about twice as close to the existing GF, as it is to the new construction GFV.
So both accommodations will use the same play area, but it's physically much closer to the existing hotel than to the new DVC building. DVC would be more honest when they market this, to say "the wedding chapel is a DVC amenity" than the new wet play area, if proximity is the guide.
It does appear that they may have a new quiet pool dug out, on the side of the new villas opposite the GF hotel (poly side). Too early to tell for sure, but it looks like it. Why else would they need a "retention pond" small shape right by seven seas lagoon, after all?
