Yes, that makes complete sense! That's why if I owned VGC I would go then and use my own points for greatest value.... one thing to remember is that low season for DVC is not the same as low season for the parks-point cost per night drops when the parks are less busy so those are often higher demand times for owners to go as their points go farther.
As an owner at the Kaanapali Marriott, I completely agree. We bought there because it was the first timeshare presentation where we said "I would like to come back here every year". That has held true. We didn't buy it as an investment to rent out. But as PP said, they were able to get one at 9.5 months out, so maybe it will work for us....I am a VGC owner and those points will never be available from me to rent. I use them all and if I don't, I will bank them for an extra visit for the next year.
Still true as of July 2019.My understanding is that VGC is the toughest resort to get into. I'm not sure if it's still true but I believe at one point they even closed the waitlist to buy VGC points direct
How many nights?For all you locals of VGC and others -- how is waitlisting close in on studios/1br clear say 2-8 weeks out? I'm trying to gauge how well the waitlist works vs needing to troll the reservation site daily at 5am
Yes and no. Any new construction at the DLR pretty much has to involve removing existing structures and getting creative with layouts (which also has to take into consideration zoning laws that affect what kind of thing they can build on different parts of their property).Since OP has been answered, thought I’d ask a different question. Do they have room to build any additional vacation club space at the Disneyland Resort? I’d love to see DVC at the Disneyland Hotel. I’d be first in line to buy!
This is all very interesting. I didn’t even realize they had room for a 3rd park. I think a 3rd park would be pretty neat and we’d definitely love another DLR hotel or dvc.Yes and no. Any new construction at the DLR pretty much has to involve removing existing structures and getting creative with layouts (which also has to take into consideration zoning laws that affect what kind of thing they can build on different parts of their property).
I mean, they probably could find a way to build a “4th Tower” for DVC at DLH, but it would involve reconfiguring, demolishing, and/or building over existing structures.
There were short term plans to build another hotel on property, and while everybody wants another on-property hotel, the location and design was interesting to say the least - basically right on top of the west side of DTD and “blocking” the DLH).
Disney does own some property outside the main resort area, so I’d speculate that those are the most likely for a new hotel/DVC property, but building one there is not likely to happen until a major decision is made about the future expansion of DLR (like adding a 3rd park, for example).
Thanks for a the data point. So snowballs in SoCal do existHow many nights?
Studio for one night ~1%. More than one consecutive -0%.
1BR for one night ~10%. -2% and less for more.
*wild estimate / speculation from a VGC stalker.
**Just saw a studio avail this afternoon for 20 pts for this Sunday 10/27.
It would theoretically be the Fujishige property under long term lease south of Harbor/Katella, currently a parking lot.This is all very interesting. I didn’t even realize they had room for a 3rd park. I think a 3rd park would be pretty neat and we’d definitely love another DLR hotel or dvc.
Probably low priority until they can get a sweetheart deal with city council (they’ll wait it out until a friendly one is seated). At least my beloved Earl of Sandwich was able to reopen!Disney has plenty of surface lots to convert over for development before jumping over to Angel's. Toystory lot (Fujishige Farm) would be interesting smallish 3rd park. I could easily see that develop over this century and hinges on how Gardenwalk fleshes out with all the new hotel build around it coming online this year with the Pumba lot's future
More interesting is the immediate DTD development and what they have in plans for the new terrible DTD parking behind PP.
Don’t you love when that happens? It’s like hitting the lotto! I used my $100/pt AUL points to waitlist last month and it triggered on day 7.I have rented out a reservation at VGC to another member here, but it was booked with WDW points. I own at VGC, and those points are for family trips to VGC only (would never use them on another resort).. I was able to add a day to one of our family trips by renting points from a member here, but it was just a day tacked on, and unfortunately, we had to move rooms, which was a pain. I have not had trouble booking prior to the 7 month window and have been successful twice getting a reservation at 7 months on non-VGC points.
