Woo Hoo! Just closed on a resale now what do I need to make a reservation???

Very Excited here!!! We just closed on a resale yesterday and were told that Disney should be entering our info in their database. Then after that is complete (2 weeks) we will be sent out our Membership card.

I'm semi panicking because this contract has 2012 points and is a March use year. Therefore I would need to bank those points or make a reservation by Oct. 31.

Is there a way in about a week I can call member services and book a trip utilizing the 2012 points without my card?????

Any help would be appreciated thanks!

Call Member Administration in a week or so - they'll give you your Membership ID and an activation code so you can initially log on to the DVC Member site.

You'll need your contract number and (I think) the name of the Seller ...

At that point, you're good to go and can bank those 2012 points ... or reserve a trip ...

You actual membership card will come a few weeks after that ...

Welcome Home!!!

I agree with joelp -- give them a week from whenever the title company says they did the closing and give Member Administration a call. That's about how long it took for my two recent closings. You'll want the contract number and the seller's name, which you should have from the closing documents.

Knock on wood, but you should be able to get in easily by the end of the month. Next time, if there is one, you might want to consider having the Seller bank the points before closing if the timing is at all tight. Both of mine did as a condition of the contract.

Welcome home! It took my recent closing two weeks, and I was also nervous because of an October banking deadline. But just to be clear, you would need to bank the points by Oct. 31, but if you don't make it, you don't need to make a reservation by Oct. 31. Your points expire after the night of February 28, but you can make your reservation any time up to then that you can find availability at a DVC resort.
