    When is the 1st day it will be possible to book for Grand Floridian DVC villas if it's not your home resort? We'd love to add points there but it's so expensive and we're only a year and a 1/2 into our membership.

    Howdy Michele!  You could not have asked your question at a better time!!  June 23, 2013 is the date!!

    The information below is from the Disney Vacation Club Member website.  As this is a unique situation, I wanted you to have the exact details straight from the source.  

    "Launch Period Booking Window

    Due to this Resort's scheduled opening date, Disney Vacation Club has temporarily altered traditional booking windows to ensure that Members who call this Resort "home" will enjoy Home Resort Priority.

    As Home Resort Priority reservations for The Villas at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa will begin only 5 months before the Resort's scheduled October 23, 2013 opening date, Disney Vacation Club has temporarily altered traditional booking windows.

    Members who own at The Villas at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa may begin using their Home Resort vacation points to book stays at the Resort for check-in dates as far as 11 months out, as normal.

    However, when reservations open to other Members beginning June 23, 2013, reservations with check-in dates ranging from October 23, 2013 through December 31, 2013 will be available in a 4-month booking window instead of the usual 7. Reservations with check-in dates beginning on or after January 1, 2014, will be available to be booked through the typical 7-month booking window starting June 23.

    This temporary alteration of traditional booking windows is designed to provide Home Resort Priority during the grand opening of this new Resort."

    Please let me know if you need any further information.  I hope you are enjoying your DVC Membership and I wish you a magical day!
