In reading some of your posts, you basically are wrong more than 1/2 the time. Why guess when you don't know for sure ?

1. Wait list is first come first serve regardless of points needed
2. guides make the same amount on any sale, its volume not resort so they want to sell you what you want to buy
3. see #1, threats mean nothing, they want you to get the points

Any luck with resale? What does your sales person say when you tell her that you have no choice but to start looking at resale contracts?

Well, it's been a couple of years since I last added on...but here's my experience:

I have three 50-point BCV add-on's (each done separately). I bought all three direct from Disney, and I was wait listed on all three. The longest wait list was three weeks (i.e., I got my points in from 10 days to 3 weeks from going on the wait list).

I don't remember if I gave my guide (who I love) my cc at the time I went on the wait list--probably did. But I do know I had the option of saying "no" prior to actual purchase (when the wait list came through). Of course, I did not say no.

My impression is that VGC is the longest/hardest to get wait list, but that BCV is next...so I would guess that the BLT wait list, no matter how long it is, wouldn't last very long. You could probably get a "feel" by looking at some resale sites to see just how many contracts are for sale...that tells you how much access to points Disney has (through ROFR)...

Of course, you got your points so this "my experience info" is now moot. But in case anyone else is wondering...that's my now two (or maybe it's three) year-old experience...

Have fun w/your points!
