Quetion about VGC waitlist
 
Does anyone know on average how long the waitlist is for VGC? I'm well aware that this is a difficult question to answer but if anyone has some experience with it that would be helpful.

It really depends on the UY you need. I know I spoke to my guide two months ago and was told for my June UY the wait was about 2 months. Yet when I added on last year there I waited over 6.

TWO other posters here just got their March UY points after waits of just about 1 full year.

Thanks for that.

Let me ask you this. All my vacation time is scheduled in November for the year. And we like Disneyland in October/ December. What would be a good UY for that kind of schedule? I'm ignorant to how UY matters.

We typically travel during those months and we have an August UY which works well for us. Even a June UY would be OK. I wanted a UY wear if we canceled a trip I would still be able to bank the points.

We have a June use year and went on the waitlist at the end of October last year. Our points came through just a month later.

We had been warned to expect a long wait and were really surprised that they came through so soon :hyper:

I'm confused now about UY. Is there a primer somewhere that breaks it down?

I just got a email saying the price is going up to $165 a point starting March 20, it might change your mind about buying your points from Disney.

Yes, but I can't find it at the moment! Hopefully someone else will post it if I can't find it soon. Basically, you want to travel early in your UY, so if you like Oct and Dec, Oct is a good UY and Feb is not good. If you travel late in your UY, you have less time to reschedule if you have to cancel a trip.

ETA: AHA!! Here it is:

You'll also want to look at the breakdown of UYs sold at VGC, so you'll know which ones are more common. For example, June apparently is very common, so will have more resales and a shorter waitlist. March is apparently the reverse, which some of us found to our chagrin when we waited on the order of a year for the waitlist or the right resale.

ETA: I just realized that this information isn't as easily available as the Florida resorts, because of differences in how the information is made available by the two difference states. Maybe we could do an informal data gathering here?

That would be me..I think March use year just comes up less frequently. I see quite a few June use years in the resale listings. I am also seeing resale prices skyrocket..I know others paid in the mid 90's, I paid $108 for the resale I made an off on right before my direct waitlist came through (natch) but I am now seeing prices of $115 pp and they have sales pending..sooo just as I thought when VGC first came on board, the small size of this resort and the fact that it is the only game in town at DLR has made VGC a very hot property.

I am the second person who just got my March GVC points after waiting for nine months. My March use year works for me because I like to travel around Easter time. I can not believe the price is going up to $165!!!

dzd 03-09-2013 11:56 AM

165pp! I just got quoted 130pp for 160 points. Is it going up that much? I'll just get on the list.

I just got off the phone with member services. According to the guide I spoke to, as a result of the recent price increase announcement, the VGC waitlist is growing rapidly. She said the call center is overwhelmed with add-on and waitlist requests.

I just went on the waitlist for some VGC points. I was told that the wait is 1 year on average. My guide did not mention any differences in wait time for the various UY.

I went on the waitlist yesterday and was also told that the wait would be a minimum of at least a year, but likely more.

Sheesh! I am feeling so lucky that my resale passed ROFR last August. I was feeling guilty that the contract was a bit larger than I needed, but now, :cloud9:
