Link to Press Release on DI DVC

So after some people posted on a mailing list the press release, I went and found the actual link to it. from the
Businesswire website

so this looks like fact no longer rumor.

Ironic that the graphic which accompanied the Orlando Sentinel article should read "part of the Disney Institute will be turned into Vacation Villas", as the previous name for these accomodations were the Vacation Villas.

But, are all the Vacation Villas to be demolished? That graphic (red circle) seemed to point only to units situated toward the west end of the Vacation Villas area. Although I'm going to be in a (small) minority here (and though I'm excited at the prospect of a DVC resort in this area), I hate to see all these villas demolished. Seems like such a waste. Besides, we are losing a part of WDW history here, one of the earliest resorts (and part of just five total Disney resorts through most of the 1980's). Extensively renovated, those buildings would have made great Grand Villas. :(
