Grand Floridian Purchases

Anyone purchase at VGF today?

Was there any specials other than the $145.00 a point? Did they give you the previous UY plus the current like they typically do. Was there any additional points off or anything?

Also other than getting the points, is there any inaugural things for people who purchase first with the resort? I'm trying to see if it's worth adding on an additional 50 points to my points collection. I currently have 160 with AKL.

From what I've read there are no specials or incentives and probably no need for any.

Current members can buy now for $145/point, and it'll go up to $150 when it opens to the public June 19th. Also doesn't look like there is any special items or acknowledgement for those considered "founding" members.

They are only giving 2013 points if you have an April use year because that's when the resort was declared, April 1. With a December use year, you will get December 2013 points (which of course you could borrow for a trip,prior to that).

there are no last year's pts as there was no VGF last year. seriously, the pts are based on the timeshare itself.

Our guide clarified that you only get points going forward for VGF (2013 points).

I don't understand how you could get June 2012 points since the resort did not exist then. That is not legal per what has been posted here regarding FL timeshare laws. Or are you speaking of a different resort not VGF?

I am pretty sure that you don't get 2012 points. I have a June UY and have already received my points beginning June 2013

You will not get 2012 points if you bought VGF (You will only get 2012 points if you buy another resort before 6/1/2013).

If your guide said that you would get 2012 points for VGF, he was either mistaken or you misunderstood.

You will get 2013 points and all points going forward.

Sorry for the confusion. You are correct about the 2012 points. i talked to my guide and he was referring to purchasing Aulani as a comparison only. I was on the fence about whether to add more there or to get VGF points, but in the end settled on VGF.

Yeah, I'm interested to hear what happens on this as well. This isn't even possible, as the resort did not exist in June 2012.

My guide told me yesterday that April is the first UY in 2013 that will be receiving 2013 points. There are no 2012 points.

So for a June UY you will be receiving June 2013 points, in June.

ETA... Nevermind... saw that you clarified.

Does anyone know when Californians can purchase into the GFV? My agent called me yesterday just to tell me he couldn't discuss anything with me!

My salesperson is based in California and couldn't talk to me about the new resort. But he put me in touch with a salesperson in Florida who could discuss it with me.

It's Official! I am the proud owner of 90 points at Villas Grand Floridian! I have the same use year, September and so excited! Since my guide is based in California she couldn't talk to me about it she put me in contact with an awesome guide in Florida.
