WooHoo!! We just closed today on our Saratoga Springs contract!!! Im not sure how long it will take Disney to get us into our system. Can anyone give me an idea as to how long and when we can book our trip?
Thanks!:cool1:

Took us 13 days. It could be faster for you IF you can get Dvc to give you your member number over the phone. I got into their system today and made my res.

Congratulations! I believe about 10 days and then you could call member services and they can tell you if you are in the systen yet.

My wife just mentioned to me an email from the title company that said that we would be in within 72 hrs.? does that sound accurate? I was thinking it would be around the timeline posted in the replies. I would be very excited if it only took that long!

I believe the title company gives the two week timeframe since, for some contracts, that is how long it will take.

Our most recent contract was sent to Disney last Monday and the points were in on Sunday, so seven days.

Good luck.

Give it three business days and start calling Member Administration. It may take a week or so, but maybe you'll get lucky! Congrats and Welcome Home. :goodvibes

We closed last week on 3/19 and when I called DVC administration today they didn't have the transfer paperwork in the system yet. I was told that it can take up to 2 weeks. I am going to call again on Friday.

Hi Congrats! I just closed on Monday. I know how you feel! The anticipation is killing me. I feel like the old ketsup commercial. I'm not sure your old enough to remember them.

Sadly...I am. We are going to the actual Saratoga Springs in NY this weekend and were hoping to get the trip all set as to convince my parents into a bit of house sitting. We'll actually be in the real Congress Park on Saturday. It would be interesting to compare.

Not at all. We bought 160pts at Saratoga Springs. 108 2011 banked points and 160 for our Aug UY. We paid $52.50/pt and paid closing and 2012 MF.
Does anyone have a number for Memeber Administration? I looked in the DVC Resource center and could only find contact info for Member Services. Thanks again to all for your Welcome Homes and info.
Best part of this whole thing is that our kids have no idea and our 12 yr old who knows Disney inside and out, reads these boards, but has no idea. They will be beside themselves happy when we do tell them.

Thanks for sharing, and what a great deal! That is pretty cool for your kids too, I bet they will be doing a serious :banana: happy dance when they find out. Congrats again!

We closed on a BWV contract on Feb 22... just called member services and there's nothing in the system. Could it be any different to call Member Admin?

Just from what I've read on the boards there is a difference between the two. However, being brand new to DVC I have no information on it. Can anyone clarify?

Wait, you closed more than a month ago and you aren't in the Disney system? Call Member Administration, it's the same number but a different selection in the phone tree. If they confirm you still aren't in the system, then ask to speak to the team who inputs the new memberships into the system. There may be paperwork missing from your contract and that would hold up getting into the system.

Member Administration can give you your new membership number, Member Services cannot. Once you have your number, you can then talk to Member Services to make your first reservation. Member Administration can help you set up your online account, as well.

Just talked with Member Admin. She pretty much confirmed what i read on the boards earlier that there's only one person who enters in the contracts and that it takes 1 to 2 weeks for it to be entered.
