Resale/Direct Buy DVC Questions
New to DIS boards. I am one of those people who research a subject to death and have been reading everything I can on DVC resale and Purchasing Direct from Disney. I have been to AllEars, ***********, the Disney DVC site, and several resale sites. Most of the information is straight forward, but there were some tangental statements that I couldn't find additional information on and thus I am here to drink from the DIS Discussion board's Firehouse of Knowledge.
I understand the Perks you gain by purchasing direct from Disney (or perks not passed on to resale buyers). I also understand the cost savings calculations method of determining if resale is right for me. But the Questions threads I would like information on are as follows:
1) Disney offers a discounted point purchase program for current DVC members. If I buy a resale, can I purchase the smaller add on hours directly from Disney?
1a) If So, do the add on hours then qualify me for the perks that were omitted upon purchase of a resale?
1b) If my first contract was directly from Disney, do I loose the perks if I purchase additional points off the resale market? (Giving me an account with the Disney perks and more points for the $ with the additional points?)
2) I have seen where historically DVC allowed OKW members to extend their points to 2057 for an additional $25 per point.
2a) Does this extension apply to the other resorts that expire in 2042?
2b) Can a resale purchase of OKW 2042 extend to 2057 now? (EG can I buy a OKW 2042 resale and then extend it to 2057 after I get added to the system?)
I have additional questions, but they could significantly change depending on the answers to these two question trains.
Thank you for taking time to read this and/or response...
