Also many add-ons from current Poly owners that need more points for bigger accommodations. I have "only" 100 Poly points so this is my group.

I think there will be a lot of add-on purchases from existing members at other resorts. Having 1,2&3 beds will hugely increase demand. Resale prices for the Poly will also rise.

I think it is safe to expect the same starting price with the best incentives to float between Poly, Riviera, and FW, similar to how VGF was sold alongside Riviera. They'll also differentiate Poly and FW with different point charts for comparable sized rooms, like a Poly one bedroom will likely cost a decent bit more than one week in a cabin so people buying into FW will need fewer points for a week compared to Poly.

Well, if the Polyday Inn points are part of the existing PVB association, then resale restrictions will only affect the resale points' use at RIV and DLH, plus any future resorts. They will not be relegated to use only at PVB the same way that RIV resale points can only be used at RIV. They will be handled in the same manner as VGF2 points.

Now to see what pricing will be on Polly tower versus cabins at four wilderness. Does Disney have any incentive to offer significant incentives for Polynesian will be part of the same association? I guess we won’t reach grand Floridian fire sale numbers of the summer.

Well, I predicted this over a year ago. On another forum I was so ridiculed for my predictions, I quit it. I posted my opinion with 5 reasons. Instead of just disagreeing with my opinion, I was made out to be a village idiot. Too bad I quit the other forum, a good I told you so post is surely deserved. Oh well, not worth the effort to get back on.

When they announced the new association for cabins at FW I knew the writing was on the wall. This is really good for me having owner priority in the new building, but I think it's dumb for DVD. Unless of course they plan to shift a bunch of bungalow points over to the new building and rip everybody off. I was sure this would be a new association. Happy to be wrong though.

Just announced that this will be part of the existing PVB condo association.

Oh I did forget to mention resort loop monorail capacity. Currently the Grand Floridian guests play second fiddle to Poly guests which will only increase during higher occupancy periods

very true going to be a mess, the infrastructure can barely handle what they have now, but they dont think about these things anymore or care.

The Polyday Inn looks just as bad from the Golf course side. What most are not considering is the lack of amenity infrastructure at the Polynesian to support these additional guests. Bus stop size, dining, and even bars are insufficient.

agree this is gut wrenching to see photos of, Im still in shock they did this. Idiots.
