My DW and I just called The Timeshare Store and put in a request for a resale. As long as we pass Disney's ROFR we will happily be DVC Members (once again). It's not as many as points as we had before, but at least it gets us back as members. :)

Just curious, are you at the same home resort as before? Anyone deliberately changed home resorts?

Thanks for the "Welcome Home" (again)!!!

No, we didn't get in to the same resort, but at least it is a foot in the door, as long as we get through the ROFR.

We had 350 points before and sold them to help my mom get settled into her retirement life in Florida. Now that she is pretty much settled, we opted to purchase a 100 point resale at Vero Beach. It may have not been our first choice, but we will be able to pay cash for this resale.

So happy for you !!!!
I know how difficult it would be to give up our points. You have to do what you have to do !
100 points can get you alot of fun . I love the planning and plotting on how best and when best to use our points. Good Luck:bounce:

Mom raised you right, and kudos to you. Family first. That being said, it is wonderful that you will probably soon be back in the DVC family. Keep us posted on ROFR.

This is awesome news, Andy! So glad you'll be back in the DVC family soon. BTW -- I know of someone (formerly of these boards) that just recently put up 4 VB contracts recently at the Timeshare Store -- all totalling over 300 pts.

I hope it comes through for you!

Glad your Mom is settling in to Florida.

Will send prayers your way for your resale.

Please post when you have news.

WELCOME HOME and hope you enjoy as much as you did the first time around. VB is a good choice AND it's closer to the Magic and Wonder in case you get homesick. ;)

Although we all agree that Pixie Dust is a powerful thing, you might want to start clicking the heels of those ruby red slippers: there's no place like home, there's no place like home, there's no place like home...

We received an e-mail last evening from a DISfriend who heard that we were interested in DVC points. He and his wife are selling their VB points because they recently purchased property in the VB area. We are now able to purchase 110 of his points for what we were going to pay for the other 100 point resale, it's like getting 10 free points a year!!! This deal was just too good to pass. We will be sending in our deposit within the next day or two. We will also get all of 2004 points, with a September use year. It will be an anxious couple of weeks waiting to hear about the ROFR.

Thanks for all the PD!!! :teeth:

Good luck with ROFR!!

Just a FYI, I read on the dvc discussion board that Vero Beach will have a special assessment due to the hurricanes? Not sure if this is true - didn't pay too much attention because it wouldn't affect me. But you may want to look into it since you'll be buying into VB. It may influence your decision to buy on or off site.

Good luck in any case!!!

So, now you've lost 2 contracts to ROFR? Or am I reading this wrong? I think you're very generous to help out your mom, and I hope you get to hear Welcome Home very soon!

I always read your threads on the cruise board.

No, just one contract to ROFR (so far), we just started our second contract tonight. If it's meant to be, it will go through, if not, we will try again.

I received a call from our resale agent this morning at work. She called to let us know that she made a terrible mistake. It turned out that Disney did "NOT" exercise the ROFR on the 110 VB resale we put the offer on. She also told me that we "SHOULD" be receiving our closing papers in a few days!!! We're In!!! Thanks for all the Pixie Dust that was sent our way!!!

Since mom is now in FL maybe you can spread out the points by spending a few days with her?

That's what we do. Mom lives about an hour from WDW and we stay a night maybe two with her. Makes us appreciate the 2 to 3 nights at DVC. Sorry mom! :blush:

In today's mail a package arrived from DVC with our membership number, New Member Handbook, and the 2004-2005 Vacation Planner. Do you think we are a bit excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We arrived at my mom's (in Florida) about 15 minutes ago after having a very nice dinner at Dixie Crossroads in Titusville. We landed in Orlando at 3:30pm and was sitting down to eat dinner at 5:00pm, we didn't waste anytime getting to Dixie Crossroads!!!
