Did anyone else watch the Samantha Brown Aulani webcast today (to get the free lithograph...lol)? I did, and then chatted with a Rep. I had no idea that the Grand is sold out for DVC! (but they called me back and said I could go on a waitlist!).
I did. I didn't talk to the rep though. Did you guys go over the "special discount" for adding points? My home resort is the Grand. What's yours? - EpicDio

I'm not a member. I was interested though, but only if I could have the Grand as my "home" resort. Since it's sold out, they're trying to sell everyone on Aulani or Animal Kingdom resort at WDW (and then use your point at GCH). That's fine I guess, but then you don't get to have "home court" advantage when booking. Not a problem though... I don't have the $$ right now anyway! The special disc. was getting a one time only allottment of extra points (same # as the amount you buy) if you bought in now. - msdizmaui

I chose the home resort with the lowest dues... you can book anywhere - 415beachgirl

Really? That's smart. Have you ever had issues booking at another resort? They made a big deal about having "first booking" privilleges at your home resort.

I haven't had issues as long as you're flexible. I was able to book the Wilderness Lodge during peak season this past year. I also booked Boardwalk Villas for our trip in two weeks. - EpicDio 381.7 #354 9:43PM
