We bought 150 points the second week of August at VGF for $150pp. The incentive they provided us was preloading our account with 150 points for the 2013 use year, even though our contract doesn't begin until April 2014. We essentially got 51 years.

They gave you what they legally had to give you. The resort was declared in April 2013, so you are in your 2013 UY. You'll pay prorated dues on those 2013 points from October through the end of the year. It's not an incentive, April is simply the earliest UY to get 2013 points because that was when the resort was declared.

Wow, some guides will say anything!

Prorated dues for 2013 will be 155.75.

Everyone's contracts expire at the same time, there is no way to get 51 years.

HOWEVER...its all semantics, congrats and enjoy your purchase!

My UY begins in September. I bought 65 points at GFV. When September comes around, will I get 65 points or 130. 65 from last year. My guess is 65.

You will get your 2013 UY points....65

There is no 2012 UY, therefore no points to get.

You will have access to your 2014 points if you want to borrow them which gives you access to 130.

However, you only have 65 current points.

And P.S. all your points from now until 2064 are already in your account. Your points don't get "deposited" each year on September 1. So your September 2013 points are already there (and your 2014 points to borrow, for that matter).

I didn't know that. Why do some people get points from "last year" when they buy in. I get 65 points in September. Is that right?

No one who is buying VGF is getting "last year's points." The resort opens in October 2103, and so Disney continued its pattern of declaring the resort (legally) six months prior to that. That meant the April UY were the first to get points (February and March UYs will get their first points in 2014).

You can't get 2012 points for VGF because the resort didn't exist in 2012. So with a September UY, your first points are 2013 (and there are 65 points if you bought a 65-point contract). I have the same UY and contract size. And for an August 2014 trip to VGF, I'm using my 65 2013 points and borrowing all 65 of my 2014 points.

Edited to add: The people getting "last year's points" are buying resorts other than VGF.

That can be an incentive to buy at a resort that has a "last year". Legally, VGF was born on April 1, 2013, so there simply is no "last year". This time next year, they may offer that as an incentive....give you 2013 points as well.

Missy phrases it correctly, you are never waiting for points to load. They are all there.

What you are waiting for is the booking window to open.

My account has my 2016 points listed. The earliest I can use them is for a ressie in my 2015 UY by borrowing them into 2015. With an April UY, I can use my 2016 points for a ressie on April 1, 2015. To book that ressie, I need the booking window to open, which happens on May 1, 2014.

My 2050 points are there too. Same rule applies.

Also the resort contracts will end in January of 2064 (I believe) and no UY's would get points that year. So - still 50 years of points for all but Feb and Mar UY's which will have only 49 years of points.

Still better than the deal that many of the older resorts got that expire in 2042 and only had 40 some years.
