    There is a reason he says that, I have seen an alligator while at the boat dock at the Poly, even watched the water police chase him away from the beach area. It says like a cool idea but count me out, the water is too nasty to enjoy and between the gators and snakes well let's just say I'm good.

    Oh, I know. What's shocking is that you have to tell people that. If it's not a pool or the beach, I am not going anywhere near the water in Florida.

    The price will be a kidney, spleen, both legs, 1 arm, and your liver. That's the AP discounted price!

    TA! I cannot see us buying any additional points at any new DVC resort given the price they are charging now. Actually, we have enough points for WDW. If we ever add on it will most likely be HHI via resale.

    Count me in, and I will bring a pole and rope to hang some chickens off my balcony to create my own Gator Jumparoo show.

    If they build DVC at Poly, won't they have to add another pool? The volcano pool isn't very large, nor is the quiet pool. And with additional rooms obviously means additional people which would equal to a very, very over crowded pool. So where would they add another pool or expand the current one?

    This reminds me of a weekend place my husband and I thought about buying. We live in south Louisiana. Behind the house/property there was a small bayou which would give us access to the larger lake-perfect! The neighbors came over to introduce themselves and told us to make sure we continued to put a chicken on the line for Honey. We were perplexed. Turned out Honey was a 10 foot alligator! The neighbors fed it. Needless to say, we changed our minds about buying.

    HAHA!

    For 30 years I have been tormenting my wife and now my daughter with brochures from GatorLand in Kissimmee, saying we are going there to see their Gator Jumparoo show. Haven't been there yet...

    We would see them in the bayous around the lake all the time and I was always petrified that the boat would spring a leak. They really are very scary looking. I'm with your wife and daughter on this.:goodvibes

    KOOK, I need to pop out of my GF FAQ hole once in a while to see what's going on in the rest of the Resorts Board!;) Very interesting, especially considering the point you brought up about the site balloons.

    For those who say they would worry about water snakes - don't they have them in Bora Bora? Maybe the risk is worth it where the water is so gorgeous.:teeth:

    :rotfl::rotfl::rotfl: All of these comments made me laugh, DISers are a funny bunch.

    I think the addition of the bungalows should look amazing sitting out on the water but staying in one for us will be out of our price range unfortunately

    I don't really understand how DVC works but cant you rent points from club members? And if so does anyone have an average price for a DVC villa? I'm trying to figure out if this will even be a possibility for our family!

    :wave: Hellooo Mighty Miss Grand Floridian! I think they're running out of room on terra firma and might have to move over to that 7SL island in back of the GF and Poly.

    Yes, you can rent points from members and from agencies that re-sell member points. You can also just book a cash reservation for all DVC. This is done just as you would a non-DVC booking and unlike renting, you will get daily housekeeping and you can apply any applicable discount. For example, we booked a cash reservation for BLT last August and applied the 40% off military discount.

    Try DVCRequest.com and go to David's points caluclator. Put in the dates of your trip and it will show you how many points needed to book different types of villas. Hover over the point totals to see the cost in dollars. That is a site that matches point owners to point renters and the standard rate is $13 per point.

    If you are able to find an owner on your own (the Disboards DVC-Rent/Trade forum can help), the going rate is lower: most seem to be offered in the $11 range, currently.

    Can't wait! I am not a DCV member. I'm only 14. Parents also don't have one. When I am older I will and this will be the first thing I buy!

    Sure it could be a DVC venture with only 20 units - think really sinister. Make them available as a "perk" only to direct-purchase DVC members and you kill two birds with one stone - raise demand for VGF/BLT and as a rationalization for the enormous price increases on the direct contracts.
