Just called my guide..

I just got off the phone with my guide and he said there are about 7 people ahead of us. We are waiting for 50 BCV points with an Sept or Oct use year. Hopefully it won't be to long now. He also said they are going to acquire a large number of points and they will spread them out so it shouldn't be to long.

Hmm. Does that mean bad news for someone waiting to hear if the contract they want is going to pass ROFR?

I had a 50 point SSR contract come through the end of last week. Just got my closing papers Monday.

I was put on the waitlist for those March 18th.

I don't know how many ( if any) BCV contracts have been acquired through ROFR. But I am curious myself

Disney took our first BCV contract in February.
But we snagged our second one two weeks ago!!!

So here's a question for the ROFR Monkey. The 7 people ahead of you get their points. The 7th person got 200 points from a ROFered contract of 350 with your use year so there is 150 left and you need 50.... But the people next on the list after you need 150 points.... Do you think Disney would skip u???

Hmmmm

You can be skipped.

I waitlisted two 100 pt contracts for HHI in January (I have a June UY)- I decided to decrease the number of points a few weeks later and switched to a 100 pt contract and a 60 point contract. The 60, because of the change, went to the back of the line. The unchanged 100 point contract kept it's place in line.

The day before yesterday, my 60 point waitlist came through. The 100 is still waiting even though it's first in line for points.

So, if the points don't match up, you will be skipped.

Disney doesn't have to match a 100 point request with a 100 point buy back. They can pool the points and break them up into what ever counts they need.

Agreed. What I should have said is, if your waitlist is more points than Disney has available, they won't hold the points for you and wait til they get more. You'll be skipped and the points will be given to someone below you who is waiting on a small number of points.

Right. A more accurate statement, and one which my guide warned me about when we were doing a couple of smallish add ons direct at VGC a little over a year ago.

He actually had us give him a range of points we would take. If the number available fell within our range, he said, we'd get them.

So we told him 125-150 the first time, and we got 125. The second time we told him 50-75 and we got 75.

I think others have posted their guides wouldn't let them do this anymore.

Hmmmm
From another recent response, the first person will get their 50 points and the next will be offered a partial of their requested points

I'm not sure how long the other ones on the waitlist were on before you were on, but late last year in Nov. I saw, a 160 and a 80 pt OCT UY BCV contract go on sale through one reseller. One passed ROFR at a fair price and the other one, I'm not sure. There was a 150 pt SEP UY that passed earlier this year. There is a 200 pt one currently in ROFR now, but it looks like it's partially stripped.

I wonder what price point Disney decides to ROFR them at, or if there is a waitlist limit when they would start acquiring points. It's also a risk too, since if Disney does acquire the points and the waitlist people change their minds, then Disney is now stuck with points. Although, it doesn't sound like that would be a problem.
