Me too although this is day 21 of waiting to see if Disney excercises their ROFR. I am also dealing with Robert and always get my calls returned and e-mails answered right away.
We are waiting to see if our SSR contact goes through.
When we were in Disney the beginning of the month, we went to SSR and toured the resort and looked at the mock up of the other rooms.
My mother was ready to by right from Disney but my dh and I wanted to get home and check the resale market (we already own timeshares in Orlando and HHI). The resale market for SSR was about $30 less per point, so we chose that route. Good luck in your decision.
Wish me luck, today is day 21...waiting to hear!

I used DVC by Resale.com for our original BWV contract and everything went very smoothly. I wouldn't hesitate to contact them if they have a contract you're interested in.

We purchased 200 points through the timeshare store and were also satisfied with their services. Our only mistake was buying our points right before the big price drop when the stock market crashed. Oh well....still very satisfied with DVC.

I've purchased 3 contracts - 2 via resale and 1 direct from Disney. The first purchase was from DVCByResale and Shontell was wonderful to deal with. She is extremely professional and on top of everything. The second resale purchase was through someone else and although the sale turned out ok there were times when the sales rep. seemed a bit confused. If my addiction gets worse and I want to buy a 4th contract I would definitely look at DVCByResale first.

We used Jerry at The Timeshare Store for 100pts at OKW. Had a flawless transaction and they kept us up-to-date on everything. We were never left wondering. We tried DVCbyresale and they didn't return my call the first time i contacted them. For the life of me, i can't figure out whey anyone would use Disney for a resale.

Another TSS satisfied customer here! We did everything by email (and Fed Ex), which fit our lifestyle to a T. I don't think I even spoke with a real person once....didn't really need to, because everybody here answered my questions before I contacted them!

The only pain was finding our own financing, because if the economy.

Since our purchase, we decided to add on through Disney...they had a TON more paperwork than working through TSS did. Makes you wonder how much of it is really necessary!

We just bought BCV resale from Jaki and **** at ***************. The process was easy and wonderful. **** responded within minutes of my emails. Jaki phoned me to tell me that we passed ROFR.

We wired money in order to close quickly. (I wanted to book during my home resort advantage time.) We were in the system within three days.

I can't recommend them highly enough!

We will contact them when we are ready to buy more points.

In October of 2008 we closed on a 170 point VWL contract through the TimeShareStore. ($80.00 per point) The process was easy and just about effortless. Jamie was our agent at the TSS. We paid half cash and half home equity loan.

11 days away from our first stay as DVC'ers.

As mentioned by others I think that at $55 per point for the Boardwalk it would get bought back by Disney.

Here at The Timeshare Store, Inc.® we just had a 150 point contract at the Boardwalk sold at $79 per point bought back by Disney on 10/1/09.

We bought from DVCbyResale.com. We were very pleased. I did end up calling and following up at specific dates in the timeline.

I think I was being more anal than anything else. Its a little scary the first time you send $9000 to a company you only know on the internet!!

Everything went very well!

Yup, that was ours
And we are now on our 4th attempt! First contract, seller had issues with probate and would have taken months before it went to ROFR and second and third contract bought back by Disney.

We used DVCByResale.com for our BCV purchase from the UK and I was delighted with the service we received. Good price too.
