Everything is completed!! Now that my points are in the system and I have made my first reservation, it finally feels real!!

I purchased where I want to stay most, at OKW (not extended) and I am very happy with my purchase:

Resale TTS w/Magic Vacation Title - (highly recommended). 150 pts at $70/pt. with 76 avail for 09. Sept use year. Took 23 days to pass ROFR, not too bad. Seller pays 09 MF. Buyer pays closing. Closed Friday afternoon 7/10, and called MS Tuesday 7/14 and points were available, and MS walked me through all the info I needed to get set up on the member website as well.

Booked first trip with my own points for Sept 9-13, 2009!! Was hoping for 1BR STD at BWV (Standard view was available a few weeks ago), but did manage 1BR Pool/Garden, used more points than I wanted to (borrowed some from next year) but I'll get over it. (I do have a waitlist, but will make sure it's canceled at 31 days out - I'm learning about points in holding and all that fun stuff).

Thanks to everyone for helping me with questions along the way! (I'm sure I'll have more questions for ya too!). Can't believe I am an "owner" now, and not a "renter"
Thanks everyone! :yay::woohoo::cool1::banana:

Thanks!
Oh- Magic Vacation Title is the title company who handles the closing for the resale broker (Timeshare Store). Nancy was terrific! (and so was Robert at the timeshare store!).

Thanks for all your replies, sure do love the sound of "Welcome Home!"

Now instead of a wanna-be, I'm a borrower!! This borrowing points thing is gonna catch up with me, I better not come down with a case of addonitis! I'm hoping to squeeze in four trips with an AP. (My December trip is with rented points), but the other three are with my points. My DH thinks I'm nuts! Sept 09-Dec 09-May 10-Sept-10!!

Told DH not to worry, now that I have DVC, and will be cooking in the room, my trips are free! (Shhh...) ;)

Congratulations and WELCOME HOME:cheer2: Welcome to the wide, wide world of borrowing future points:laughing: I'm a big one at that. No sooner do I book one vacation, I turn around and find myself borrowing future points for the next one. I just returned from a 6 night stay at THV and in February 2010 I'm taking myself and my daughter on a 4 day cruise on the Wonder. I'll still have some points remaining for our annual stay in July (we've always done this for 15 years during my daughter's birthday--one of the reasons why I purchased into DVC) So have a wonderful time. You'll love all the possibilities you can have using the points. :dance3:

Thank you!! And...if you haven't done so already, maybe you can post about your THV experience. Folks round here haven't heard too much bout those who are staying there!

Thanks to everyone for wishing us well. (and yes, I better watch this borrowing thing!). :rolleyes1

congrats:cheer2: and welcome home!!!

I too just became an DVC'er. I have been a wannabe ever since i found out about them but DH was against them cause his parents have set us up on other timeshare presentations. ie, they want to just check out the property and have no intention of buying more and then the vultures look to us and make us seem like the bad guys when we are just there with them.:sad1:

But i knew that this would be for us! so thrilled that you are as happy as we are about the purchase!
