Let κ be an infinite cardinal, and 2κ<λ≤2κ+. We prove that if there is a weak diamond on κ+ then every {Cα:α<λ}⊆Dκ+ satisfies Galvin’s property. On the other hand, Galvin’s property is consistent with the failure of the weak diamond (and even with Martin’s axiom in the case of ℵ1). We derive some consequences about weakly inaccessible cardinals. We also prove that the negation of a similar property follows from the proper forcing axiom.
