If they do a DVC at the Poly I will:
1) pass out from excitement..
2) Buy tons of points.
Poly is my favorite resort!
I am glad someone is excited, I would be too if the plans were scaled back a bit, I do like blt
I'm excited too! DH just told me that he wants to buy if/when they sell. We LOVE the Poly

They are going to add another pool from the plans I've seen. Fully admit that we are DVC members and this is the one resort I would add on direct although if the price per point is too crazy we won't.
Okay I originally had typed a big rant here but then I remembered all the times I doubted Disney and was blown away by the real results. At the end of the day we will stay at the poly as long as we can afford to. I personally won't probably ever buy into DVC but would probably be okay with one DVC building at the poly. We left a weeks stay at the poly today and I was really surprised how much I disliked how close the DVC building at GF was to the monorail and wedding pavilion- was a little disappointed. If I could talk to Iger about it I would just want to know how DVC will evolve in the future, how it will endure. It seems like a get rich quick plan right now and I hope I'm wrong.
We just came home from a week at Poly. The DVC recruiter and I had a long talk re the Poly project as I told him the only resort I would purchase points for was at the Poly. At first he said there were no "current" plans for DVC at Poly. After I discussed some of the rumors and info I had gleaned from here and other places, he agreed that plans were in the "initial stages" but that Disney would not initiate them until the GF DVC units were significantly sold as Disney had been burned in the past with too many units for sale and new properties coming on line. He said that the grand villas over the lagoon were "pipe dreams" and that that the model would be like BLT and GF buildings putting more capacity in a multistory bldg. He identified the probable site for the DVC bldg as being in the Spirit of Aloha area. Take everything said with a grain of salt but it was later at night and he was not "giving the pitch" as much as passing the time with me.
Catnik, that sounds like a much better plan and I'm glad to hear reports like that one!
I think it sounds fabulous if the rumors are true. However until it is built nothing is definite with Disney.
I am in the camp for No DVC at Poly. You can't improve on perfection.
Some interesting updates, looking forward to something official from Disney . I think from a business standpoint it would make sense to sell gf first, however it will take years to build so I would not be surprised if they started soon. Still hope they will just leave the poly be.
Thanks for the info catnik. What the DVC salesperson told you seems to make much more sense to me then the current rumored DVC info found on Tikiman's site.
I understand that this is all just a rumor right now, and I am not holding my breath until Disney officially says that there will be a DVC built at the Poly. But with that all said and done, I am not sure how to feel about all of this. We stayed at the Poly during our September trip and loved the feel of the resort and would gladly return to the hotel part, however we are DVC members therefore staying there on points would not be a bad idea either. I guess I will just have to wait and see what happens with the "Rumors" before I make any sort of judgement. I do agree with the others though that the Poly is beautiful the way it is now , and if DVC does decide to do something then use an existing building and not build any other....kind of like what they did with Animal Kingdom lodge and the Jambo House.
That would be a good idea, I see blt in your sig, how do you like it?
I believe this. I think tikiman's posted plan is Disney's most ambitious envisioning of the Poly DVC and that it will likely be scaled back in the end. (Though I hope the new pool plans remain!)
BLT is the reason I was able to talk DH into buying into DVC in the first place. You really can't beat the close proximity to MK especially being able to walk there and back . Not everyone likes the atmosphere of CR or BLT, but it is home for us .
