Hi all! I'm tentatively thinking about trying to rent points for a studio next September (2020)...with the small amount of DVC rooms at VGC, is it difficult to rent a studio in that cheaper point time? Any strategies?
Your best bet is to get your request into the major brokers as soon as they will accept, which I think is 12 months and reservations open for owners to book at 11. Another place to look is under the DVC forum there is a rent board. But do read the stickies on how to protect yourself, the number one thing is to not take solicitation of offers. You should be the first to make contact.

The DVC at the Grand while it has seasons like the resorts in Florida but behaves much differently. Though anything being booked at 7 months is nearly impossible.

Thanks! I’ve rented points once before for Boardwalk via the rent/trade board, so I’m a bit familiar with how that works, but I’ll check it out again!

I didn’t realize VGC had seasons too—what’s the busy DVC season there?

    When I meant seasons I was referring to the differing point costs throughout the year (DVC refers to these as seasons). At WDW the cheapest seasons are usually the busiest at WDW but at VGC it doesn’t follow that pattern as strictly (in that stuff disappears right at 11 months) except for holidays and certain times of year. Generally the demand at VGC is pretty even.

    Can someone please tell me where the laundry room is located?
    Some information, previously posted to GCH superthread.
    Links show real-time status.

    A small laundry room is on the first floor near the VGC elevators (a short zig-zag through a few hallways).
    There are 2 washers and 4 dryers
    This laundry room is usually not locked. The seldom used barbecue patio is nearby (if you plan on waiting).

    There is also large laundry room on the second floor near the elevators adjacent to Napa Rose.
    There are 6 washers and 12 dryers
    This laundry room requires a room key to access.

    Apologize in advance. I'm sure this has been asked several times. I tried searching but no success. What is the status of the new pool bar?
    Thanks
