DVC reporting Grand Floridian now “Sold Out”

As of October 30, Disney Vacation Club informed its staff that the Villas at the Grand Floridian Resort Big Pine Key was officially sold out.  The sold out status means that there will be no discounts for purchase of points at this resort. While it may be possible to still purchase direct points, the sales focus will return to Disney's Riviera Resort for Walt Disney World. 

New incentives released on October 31st are not as good as the previous incentives. A 150 point contract would only see an $8 discount off direct pricing to $208 per point, while current members would pay $200 per point. Villas at Disneyland Hotel discounts are even less.
