I posted the other day about getting the gray ones for our new resale contracts ...

Well today I got new gray ones for our original contracts purchased in 07. Just curious.

Only new cards we ver got were when our original light blue ones issued in 1993 were replaced with the current dark blue ones. Ours are getting hard to read, so a replacement wouldn't be a bad idea.

No cards here - but we get our Mickey monitor about a week later than everyone else, so I would imagine if they are sending them to everyone I won't get mine for a while.

The Mickey Monitor is a quarterly newsletter mailed out to WDW Annual Passholders.

Not sure if the poster actually meant DisneyFiles.

We haven't received any new DVC Member cards. Did the new cards have the new DVC emblem on them? I can't see replacing cards for that reason though. You mentioned the first set you received was for a resent resale contract. Was your first contract a resale too? Maybe the gray cards are for resale contracts? That's just a guess as I don't see any reason to differentiate between membership cards as the DVC records show the type of contract anyway.

Well when I first got the gray ones I thought they were different because we did buy two resale contracts. Then I got another set with our other member number...those contracts were purchased in 07 through Disney. :confused3

No new cards here. I had trouble just getting a new one after I had lost mine a few years back.

Several of mine are so bad you can't see the name or number so would welcome new ones.

We don't have new cards yet, but now I might watch for them. We leave four weeks from today, so I hope they come in time for our trip in case we need to show them. I wonder if they will start to "phase out" old blue.

Funny thing....after we closed on our two recent resale contracts..I got two new BLUE cards in the mail. They had our first memership number on them. I called MS and told them our first membership number was on them, but needed our new membership number cards. Then we got the gray ones for the new contracts just purchased. So now I have two sets of the darker blue cards and a gray set for our first membership. THEN of course....the gray ones for the new contracts. :upsidedow

I have the dark blue ones from resale purchase in 2007. Question---mine says member since 2001--which I am guessing was the original purchase date from prior owner. Does anyone else who bought resale have an older date on theirs? Elaine

I've heard of that before. I understand that a later date (not sure when) Disney fixed it so when a contract passes to the new owner it now shows the closing date as the Member since date.

Considering how infrequently one has to present the card (for me very seldom) , I can't imagine that DVC is now replacing resale customers existing cards with new gray cards at DVC member expense! MS on the phone can't see the card color and they are the ones who would enforce the new March resale purchase restrictions/limitations while booking reservations!

I'm sure the cracker jack DVC IT dept. has a feature that signals the MS rep that it's a post 3/2011 resale contract.

Warning Will Robinson, Warning, Resale, Resale !!!!!!

but if they indeed are replacing my blue card with a gray, gee thanks, I suppose olive drab was already taken!

Yes. Our first contract was purchased resale so our cards read that we have been members since 1999.

No new member cards at my house, either...no new purchases (direct or add-on) since 2008...my old card is in fine shape, tho...and I only use it to renew our APs, and for an occasional discount...

I'm wondering if the new grey cards are as ugly as I am imagining them....lol

We just did an add-on (resale) and I wasn't expecting any new cards since it's all the same membership number. But I DID get a letter from DVC just telling us that we were 'in the system' and showing our membership number. Thought that was a little weird but figured it was just 'in lieu of' sending out new membership cards. Doesn't matter to me as long as the 'old' ones still work!:goodvibes

No new cards here either. Though I am glad, I like my blue ones, gray doesn't sound so nice looking.

Could someone with the gray one's post a pic with your memeber number/info blocked out? (if that is possible?)

Curious to see what they look like.
