The December UY Blues

I recently decided to hunt around for a small BLT add-on. However, my December UY appears to be quite elusive.

Is December the most popular UY and hardest to find resale?

Just curious....

I feel your pain. We have a June UY, also BLT. June is quite elusive via resale, as well. Good luck! I hope you find something soon.

We would love to add on 25-50 pts at BLT with a December UY as well. I think it is very difficult to find since there are so few Dec contracts out there compared to Feb which is most popular. Direct purchase may be the easiest route to take. Unfortunately, the most expensive as well. Seems like Disney is buying up Dec pts exercising ROFR from resale contracts submitted. Clearly, the points are in demand.

Here is a link to dvcnews.com that shows the distribution by UY for each resort:

http://dvcnews.com/index.php/dvc-pro...on-by-use-year

It looks like Dec is only 11%, as compared to Feb which is almost 38%. When those Dec UY contracts come available, they may get snapped up more quickly since the frequency of that UY coming available is low. Although, there are also fewer people with Dec UY, so maybe it doesn't matter that much.

Disney rofr'd my contract last week. It was December UY for BLT and at $95/pt I never thought they would but it does seem that December is in high demand. I'm currently trying for a Feb contract

Wow, I am surpised that June is the second most common UY for BLT after February. June UY resales are few and far between.

Oh no.. I am waiting on an ROFR decision for BLT Dec UY at $95.. Should hear by Thursday as that is 30 days...mine was for 100 points...I'm surprised that your contract got taken...

In the ROFR thread, it looks like many Dec points have been taken by Disney lately. :-(

Disney seems to pick and choose what UY's they like to sell for reasons that they only know. I would think that it would have an effect on more than just the number of available resale contracts.

At BLT Disney seemed to offer only February contracts for the longest time. I remember discussing this with a couple of Guides at the time and even they couldn't understand why.

Do you think that they might be interested in direct selling DEC UY contracts now because we are so new in that use year that they will be able to maximize maintenance fees collected vs. the amount of points they need to give at purchase?

I am also in waiting on a Dec UY, but on SSR. I saw BLT was mentioned. Does it matter which resort, or is it just Dec UY in general?

I don't think either of you have anything to worry about. They are still actively pushing AKV, so they have an abundance of virgin points to sell -- they certainly don't need to be reacquiring "used" AKV points to try to unload.

Looking at the ROFR thread, it does not appear that any reasonable SSR offers have failed to pass in the past 2 years. There was one loaded contract with a Jun UY that was snapped up recently, but a decent sized Dec UY passed at a fairly low price.

Good luck to both of you! Keep us posted!

Great, thanks so much for the info! I didn't think I had much to worry about, but this puts my mind at ease.
