To be honest we haven't really narrowed down to just 2. I want to stay everywhere. But if forced to choose one location we would probably do Poly. Not a huge fan of the point chart, and am actually concerned they could do some reallocation to make the studios even more expensive. Alternative would be BLT but I just prefer the overall vibe of Poly. We're huge Hawaii fans (Maui) but like the OP can't make it out west frequently so the vibe is kind of a compromise.

Sounds like I'm doing a good job talking myself into what we need to do.

Or even if they don't have any, you can ask to be put on wait list or keep checking in.
If you really want GFV, it's probably worth waiting a little so you get exactly what you want. If you mostly want to stay at GFV, you'll enjoy the 11 month advanced booking bonus for years.

Even if you signed, you have 10 days to cancel, so you could do that and switch to GFV once points come up.

We love copper creek but it is a replica of our home. We live in a beautiful house in the woods-forest.

This is one of the reasons The Polynesian is so attractive and we just love Grand Floridian DVC. Most of the resale for Grand Floridian are stripped contracts.

We will be using our Poly points for Aulani!
We are getting December UY, and Dec 2016 and 2017 points!

But, if you're happy with Poly, then congrats! Welcome to the group.

If they did any point reallocation I would be surprised. Right now the points are similar to VGF - as in only off by a point here and there. I cannot see them raising points above VGF. As an owner at PVB it's not a concern of mine. Especially since the cabins are comparatively priced (when comparing a studio cost to the lake side specialty lodging).

I always say buy where you want to stay and you sound like you want to be there.
