Slightly off topic, but what other incentives are available right now? DH and I are weighing in on where to buy...

There are no incentives for VGF at the moment.

The ship was simply amazing. We did a couple of excursions. One was dolphinaris is Cozumel. Not sure where your going to... But it was a lot of fun. My kids had a blast. The shows on board were great too. Wishes was our favorite. Don't miss Palo if you can get there. Food was amazing. But as far as the incentives, the only ones they offered were AK and Aulani. Have a great time. :

I just really love that pullout bed under the TV and the TV in the bathroom mirror. I know. I am outta my mind. I just think its cool!
One other thing to consider is the points to stay at GFV are high! I thought BLT was high until now. We have 4 nights in a 2bedroom booked at GF and needed to book 4 more nights once my resale points were added and when I was ready to book it was over 100 points higher for GF then BLT both LK for 4 nights.

That is the same line they use about DVC in general--they don't have to use high-pressure tactics because "Disney sells itself." And to some extent, that is certainly true. Perhaps the same for the GF, I realize there are a lot of enthusiastic fans of the resort.

But never is a long ways off, and a lot can happen between now and then. I would be surprised if there is sufficient demand to never discount the GFV, but you just never know. Personally, I wouldn't bet on that. If it is the case, I think it would be more attributable to the fact that it is a relatively small resort (is it the smallest, in terms of number of villas?), so it simply takes fewer sales to sell out. I don't think it "sells itself" much more than most of the other DVC resorts when they are new. Each one has unique attributes that make it attractive to a lot of people. We shall see...

Well. We bought 65 points at GFV's. I'm thinkin we will just stay a few nights or borrow the forward years points to stay 6 nights. And. Oh yeh. No incentive. 150 a point.

We bought last week for $145 a point. I don't see them offering incentives any time soon. I have never seen the SSR sales centre so busy. We specifically went to buy 55 VGF points and had to wait for a room because they were all busy with guides discussing potential sales which we Have never seen before. Also to get. To the model rooms we had to wait because it was so busy.

What we have heard from DVC whether true or not is that sales have exceeded expectations and a price increase is expected soon.

We bought for $145 as we are already owners. They went back one price increase as we do not live in a place where they can sell by phone which is standard practice.

I don't know about the price, but last month we were able to book at VGF at the 7 month window with no problem. There was plenty of availability for all of our possible dates.

That's only because the are not many VGF owners yet. Once they get closer to selling out in 2-3 years, it'll be like BCV & BWV during F&W or the popular resorts during the first 2 weeks in Dec. Or even BCV during hot months! I have yet to be able to get a full week there at 7 months.

VGF is like 75% declared, and as of the end of july, according to dvc news, only 12-13% sold.

Booking will be easy for a while with the exception of high demand periods.

A the current pace, VGF will sell out in about 2 years, however, Animal Kingdom will sell out around the new year. That can only speed up VGF sales.
