Default DVC adding to VGF

I haven't been able to see it directly from DVC yet, but I've seen reported on Facebook and here:

It sounds like the addition of the Treehouses at SSR, rather than a new separate resort a-la Copper Creek vs. Boulder Ridge.

Default More GF rooms to be converted to DVC

Disney Vacation Club has announced that they will be expanding The Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa by reimagining Big Pine Key at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort into about 200 Studios that are projected to open in summer 2022. Read the press release below for more information!

(Among other sources)

Edt: just realized this should be under news, not resorts. Feel free to move.

Just saw this. Hope my VGF points will work for the new studios.

I just saw this as well! It sounds like it will be an addition to the existing VGF Resort, similar to the Saratoga Treehouses, rather than a separate resort a'la Boulder Ridge and Copper Creek.

Great....More Studios....ugh!

It was proposed years ago when DVC add GFV that a building or two "could" be converted to DVC rooms. Apparently, it might come true now.

It pains me that Disney is taking the "cheap" route to add more DVC inventory.
