I like marshmallows. And adult beverages.

People whine about the bus-only DVCs. I have definitely seen it. OKW and SSR for being bus only, with AKV getting a side dish of "it's sooooooo far from everything!!!!!!!"
Like I said, it’s an observation. OKW and SSR rely completely on bus transportation to get to the theme parks. What you just outlined is that VGF has multiple modes of transportation to Epcot that do not require a bus ride. And for people who dislike the buses, that’s not a bad thing. I’ll take a 15 minute walk from VGF to the TTC to catch the Epcot monorail any time over standing on a moving bus with a stroller wheel digging into my ankle.AKL/V is busses only too. I don’t think RIV will have buses to Epcot and HS when the Skyliner is active. To get to Epcot from the Grand Floridian your supposed to get to the TTC by boat to Poly, walk or Monorail around the Lagoon, get off and wait for an Epcot line monorail. I hear it takes about an hour. I’ll find out for sure in a month. I’ll take a short bus ride from SSR and OKW any day.
Originally monorail correct, but I think they’ll use the easement to put in Skyliner pilons if they extend it which I suspect they will. Already supposed insiders have indicated it or another form of transport could go to DS.Yes I believe it was for the monorail but that costs too much.
Exactly. Regardless of whether or not that complaint is justified, it is not as broadly desirable as the other DVC properties. My hope is that, if they can satisfy a major SSR/OKW gripe such as that, it will spread the love across the properties a little more. Who knows... maybe... just maybe, help get you that 7 month booking you always seem to miss out on.I never found it a problem either, but it is a common complaint whether we agree with it or not.
What is the exact text in the POS? I wouldn't be happy if they add the Skyliner to DS and make us SSR owners pay for its maintenance.Originally monorail correct, but I think they’ll use the easement to put in Skyliner pilons if they extend it which I suspect they will.

Sorry Z I don’t know the exact wording I’d like to, I’ll try to dig it out, but I saw a report from someone who bought direct recently and he said the guide was stressing this easement. They never mentioned it to me when I bought a direct add on in 2016.What is the exact text in the POS?

A bunch of preferred rooms just became available for fall 2019... hoping these are the refurbs since I just booked 4 days over Halloween/wind&dine weekendBuilding one almost finished, a friend of mine there now, interiors being finished, TVs and all furniture in etc. Super quick. My friend v impressed. Only 1 beds appear to have small under TV murphy, not studios. So appears to be an attempt to make 1 beds more desirable over studios and worth 2x the points maybe?
I doubt they will be allocated to specific rooms. There are just more preferred rooms now, so even though you booked after (likely) the refurb rooms were just put on the pool of preferred rooms. May be worth live chatting with member services and asking for one.A bunch of preferred rooms just became available for fall 2019... hoping these are the refurbs since I just booked 4 days over Halloween/wind&dine weekend
