Just had to post that I finally got to make contact with my guide and he is having the papers sent in the mail for BCV! I am so excited! I know this is more money than I would shell out for vacation, but I love the idea of enjoying vacations for the next 40 years. Not to mention that I will have a kitchen with my 1 BR villa and space. I am very happy! Unfortunately, they are so backed up so my guide says that it may take 10 days for them to get me the paperwork - apparently BCV is going VERY well for them. Just had to let it out to people who would understand.

Congratulations and welcome home!

Btw, it could even take longer than the 10 days. We bought last Monday and we're still waiting for the paperwork. Of course, my guide could have just taken her time with us - this is our 5th add-on, so she knows I'm not going anywhere. ;)

Our papers finally arrived this afternoon. It took exactly TWO weeks. Our guide had said ten days also but it was longer. The backup must be getting bigger.

Congratulations and Welcome Home from a fellow resident of the Twin Cities (and a nearby suburb, too)! We bought BWV in 1999 and have not regretted it a single minute. Get prepared to be spoiled!:D :D

We filled out our papers last night and sent them today. I called Member Services to find out when the points would be in our account (it was an add on) so I could make an October ressie. The points were already in the account!! I was amazed!! I thought we'd have to wait a week or two. So, I made my reservation right away!! BCV for 4 days in October. We are going to a Disney wedding!!

When you called MS had you already put down your whole deposit or just a portion? Our paperwork I hope will be in anyday now and we only paid $500 down. I am wondering when I can call MS to make resv's. I have a feeling I have to wait until they recieve my whole deposit.

Minybear,

We were able to make ressies as soon as our points were in the system which was after I made the 10% deposit, of course I had to wait until March 6th, but once I had Quality Assurance on the phone going over my paperwork I was good to go.

Hope this helps

I hear ya, we were checking for FedEx everyday, finally after 7 days I called my guide back and he said they just sent it out, then I had to wait the weekend, all told it was 11 days before I had everything, that was March 5th, then I booked the next day because I could, didn't have too but was too excited LOL. Now I've changed it since then because the possibilities for vacations.

As it stands now we are going in June (free week).

Going in Oct for 9 nights and Mickey's scary Halloween.

And then maybe in Dec, and then next April for school vacation.

Yes I'm getting Annual Passes, Woo Hoooo

Have a great weekend. Hang in there.

I was told by my guide the financial package was going Fed Ex (Fed Ex wouldn't take 7-10 days) and then I called this Wednesday to inquire how come our package has not been recieved another salesman said it went regular mail. This really concerns me or I am just STRESSING OUT.

I was considering today on upping our points from 220 to 250. We already have resv's to do a cruise in Jan and right now the cruise portion will be a cash resv.

Yikes, if they didn't send it Fedex, which would have been 2nd day delivery then you might have a 5 or 6 day additional delivery time if they sent it regular mail, that stinks.

Hang in there, remember part of the fun is the anticipation.

If that's any consolation, have a great weekend.

I hope I got misinformation Wednesday. If I don't get the paperwork tomorrow (saturday) then I will be calling DVC to see whats going on. Right now my guide is on a cruise working and would not be back in the office until Tuesday.

We called our guide on March 2 and bought 220 BCV points. She said it would be about 2 weeks and we just received the Fed Ex package with the paperwork today!! YAY!! Also received a nice watercolor print of our new home!

Can't wait to call for reservations!

Looks like I got misinformaiton when I had called Wednesday. The financial documetns has not been sent out yet :(. They are thinking it will be sent out end of next week. Their explaination for the delay is the staffing issue.

This still make me uneasy. I am kinda wondering if there is another reason for the document delay.

We "made the call" to our guide on Feb 12, and had paperwork about 10 days later, as promised. We turned it around in one day, and thay had it in their records about a week later.

We were able to make our reservations on March 6th for BCV over Thankgiving. We had difficulty borrowing from 2003 at first, since our paperwork hadn't been recorded yet. But our guide gave us an exception. It usually takes 1 - 2 business days for the exception e-mail to make its way through the system so you can borrow and make reservations.

Word of advice: tell your guide EXACTLY how many points you will need to borrow from 2003 to get the exception. We accidentally got ALL of our 2003 points borrowed into this year. They are going to correct it.
