Well, we finally bid and won our first DVC contract. (we have been on the fence for a few years and everything finally aligned). 250 points at SSR - the exact number and resort we were hoping for.

We have been going to Disney for the last 6 years and have stayed at Saratoga twice, almost all the value resorts as well as french quarter. (we are booked at French Quarter again this Sept. via a bounceback offer from last year)

Anyway - an E-Bay auction finally came up and we bid (and won) it. (I cannot put in links yet, but the e-bay item number is 300674782432)

I am pretty sure we got a good deal and now I just hope we make it through right of first refusal. From what I understand, Disney has been pretty lax on that recently and we stand a good chance.

Anyway - We are super excited about the purchase cant wait for everything to go through....

We rented points for my wife and I to go this May (Saratoga and BWV) and this fall my family will be staying at French Quarter. (practically for free when you factor in the free dining) With no current points and a use year of December, it will be awhile before we can use the points. (although we may try to squeeze in a trip during my DD's birthday this December) :santa:

Congratulation:cloud9:
Thanks - we really hope things go well with RoFR.

You got a very good deal.
Thanks. Like I said, we thought it was decent, not the best of the best, but good enough that we are super happy with it. (and really - when I am spending my money - that's all that counts.)

Great deal! Did it come with any 2011 points? Congratulations! We just stayed 10 nights in the THV and LOVED it!

Nope - no 2011 points, but all 250 - 2012 points come in December. We had to pay 2012 dues as well. I guess I can understand that since we get full use of the 2012 points, but still - seems wrong with the points coming so late.

Then again - we did get a really good deal on it.

Congratulations, and Wecome Home. What a great buy.

Congratulations. We have just decided to buy our own points on the resale market as well. We like BWV and have called and put in an offer of what we want to pay and are hoping the broker can find us a match. Hope you get through ROFR quickly so you can enjoy the boat ride from SSR to downtown disney soon!
