    You can add it now. Even though I still have a loooong wait for it to all be finished! haha.
    It is very timely with resale, but I think the wait it makes it more exciting! Good luck with everything!!!!!! When are you planning your first trip with your new points?!

    Not really sure yet! We have a stay at Pop booked for Jersey week in Nov but I don't know if I am ready to get on plane yet. I am trying to talk myself into it! I think I will probably wait on GF until next summer.
    I also have a very old pup that I don't really want to leave. She is almost 16 (lab) so leaving her makes me nervous! Combined with Covid waiting on vaca seems to be what we will be doing for now.

    Hi everyone! Fellow VGF owner here too! :) Would love a suggestion of what to request for my November trip! Don’t need to request any exact room or anything but maybe do I want high floor, even number etc? Staying in a standard view studio. Counting the days! :love:

    :welcome: I’ll be happy to get you up on the Owner’s List!! As far as views, I honestly didn’t request a specific room in November, just asked for a high floor close to elevator. We were on the 3rd floor all the way down the hall, but it was fine!! 😂 They do say they can’t guarantee any requests, but it doesn’t hurt to ask!

    I’d love to start getting pictures of room views to keep on Page 1 for reference. Hopefully, as trips happen, (and/or people who stayed recently come by) we can start getting those up there!

    November is right around the corner!! I’m looking forward to going back, as well!

    We never had a thread for this?? Oh my. We have a few, only 40, VGF points. We have had a few stays, the most notable was for our 50th anniversary when we were upgraded to a two bedroom lake view instead of a studio we booked! It was a one night stay after a DCL Cruise, but the excellent treatment we got from the CM’s, the special edible gifts we got to share with friends who joined us from FL, made it a very special day!

    Our next VGF stay is in January, hopefully before a 4 night DCL Cruise.

    Thanks for taking care of this thread. You do an excellent job In each thread you care for! :)

    Hey! Nice to see you in this thread too!! Thank you SO much for the kind words, it’s truly appreciated ❤ When we bought our VGF points back in 2018, I started looking for a VGF Owners board, but never found one! I love that you received incredible Pixie Dust for your 50th!!! What an amazing gift! You’re only 4 months away from your next stay there!! I can’t believe how this year is flying!! I’ll get you right up under the Owner’s List!! Happy to see you here!

    I am wayyyyy too excited about the new walkway from MK! I skip fireworks more than I care to bc I don't feel like waiting in the throngs afterwards. Knowing I can mosey out and mosey around the lake has me so excited!

    I would much rather be walking toward a destination than standing waiting for a boat or monorail. For me I have already walked my legs to the bones that day whats another mile?

    We are SO excited about the path!! I love knowing we have another option if the lines are too long for the boat or monorail, or if we just feel like walking! The view is going to be amazing!!

    The lack of a walkway from VGF was the only reason we did not purchase when it first opened. Then we stayed there and fell in love. The walkway just makes it perfect!
