HOORAY!!!
That's great that you're using DVC points to stay at DLH. I've never stayed on property at DL. I really, really want to go! Since we're buying DVC resale, we won't be able to use the points for non-DVC hotels...

Yes you will, probably more than you'd like, lol! It'll be a crazy commando day but oh so worth it.

Your cruise is so close. I'm so excited for you! Hope you're having a nice weekend.

I didn't realize you're buying DVC! Congrats and home! Which resort? The resale deals are so great. You could rent your points and use the cash to stay at one of the hotels. I didn't realize the restrictions on resale were in force. I had heard rumors but didn't think it began.

We have an accepted offer on an 160 point BCV contract. Disney currently has our contract and we're waiting on ROFR.
The resale restrictions began about a year ago.

I hope they accept. The BCV look amazing! When will you find out? How exciting for your family!

Actually the restrictions came into effect two years ago. We bought our last two contracts under the gun to close before the cut off date. That's one of the reasons we ended up with more points than we really needed.

I hope you can *** ROFR!!

You bought all your contracts through Disney? More points than you need? I can't imagine. I'm in a constant state of borrow.

You seem to be managing pretty well with them though! We are considering adding on (again) and I spent this morning projecting out dues at every single resort for life of the contract to see the full impact. I gotta tell you, people can argue all the want about resale versus direct but the real cost is those dues and we all pay the same. Yowza. I'm not negating the savings with resale on the initial purchase but long term, it's a drop in the bucket compared to dues.

The dues are no joke! We'll start at $900 per year and we'll only have enough points for a two bedroom for a week every other year. With resale we're saving about $10,000 upfront which is 10 years worth of dues....

I agree, the dues are the real cost. At this point resale isn't as attractive to me because obviously we use the restricted benefits and will continue to do so. But DVC is most of our vacation budget right now for accommodations anyway. If I didn't buy direct I wouldn't be able to surprise Michael and the kids with a room at the DLH week after next.

Thats a great savings.

Thats what borrowing is for. It's not a bad place to be. I hope you find out soon.

We have five contracts. Only the two at the VGC were bought direct. The last two we bought hastily to get through ROFR before the restrictions. We only wanted 75 at the VWL, but ended up with 150. At BCV we wanted 100, but ended up with 200. I had been watching the resale market for about six months while waiting for our refinancing to come through. I knew they were good deals even if they were way more points than we needed. Now I can offset my dues renting the points out. So far I've covered 25% of 2013 dues.

I know what you mean. I wish that we had added on before they put in the restrictions. Despite this we have an offer in right now for our first resale contract. It is a small one, so even with restrictions it will be nice to have another home resort. That is is it goes through ROFR!

It was unreal. I just ate the last of my chocolate mints last night. I may or may not have neatly folded the wrapper and placed it in my nightstand. It was so fun! Great food and great company.

Smart though, even if they're bigger than you'd like, to buy before the restrictions. Like you said, you can always rent them out. I wish we would have bought GCV resale pre-restriction. I keep getting emails and the points are so much more expensive. I really need GCV points. They wouldn't help during these last minute one nighters but we're looking at Disneyland during the holidays in 2014. Without the 11 month advantage, I've got slim to no chance. One day. I told Michael next time he buys me something big, I want an add-on.

Sending lots of pixie dust! Hope it goes through. When will you find out? What resort?

Thanks the agent told us it went to Disney for ROFR on 3/17, so not very long ago. I believe they have 30 days. It is BWV. We own at AKV - bought direct in 2008.
