One of the biggest advantages of a direct purchase is the ability to get and use points immediately. If your wait is going to equal (or exceed) that of resale, would you consider buying resale?

I wonder if there really is a shortage or is it an effort to increase older resort prices to decrease the cost spread between the newer resorts and the older ones.

Seems odd that there is a direct buy waiting list and Disney decides to advertise the older resorts, something that they haven't recently done.

I am on the resale waiting list at TTS as well - still no calls from that source either. Seems when something does appear, it has already been sold. Very frustrating process.

We went on the wait list for 25 Oct. BWV points on March 19, the last day you could lock in the old price. I was talking to my guide a couple of days ago and he was kind enough to check the wait list to see how far along we were.

I can see why guides don't like checking the wait lists because it was a time consuming process. First he had to find the BWV list on his screen which took time and then he had to manually search through it for my use year. He said there was a page and a half of people waiting for BWV points and then he was kind enough to offer to look through the list to see how many ahead of me were waiting for Oct. BWV points.

I was told we had 9 people ahead of us waiting for BWV Oct. use year points. He also said the first person on the list waiting for BWV Oct. use year points went on the list on March 1st and wanted 60 points.

What I don't understand is for a while there it seemed like most resale contracts for most of the resorts were being ROFR'd by Disney but now it seems like most are starting to get passed again but there are still a lot of people waiting on wait lists for direct buys. Maybe they just have to close yet on all the contracts they recently ROFR'd before they can divide them up and sell them to us. Who knows.

I wonder if they want to have the six months go by and prices are no longer locked. So they can get the higher amounts. I bet people will still take it a higher per point

If I happen to go past the 6 months( I am very much hoping that does not happen) I don't think I would buy at the new price

There was about 2 -3 weeks of ROFR and now it seems to have tapered off and yet so many still post they are on the waiting list! Below is a contract that JUST passed why is Disney not taking it seems like a few out there are looking for OCT UY and SELLER was paying MF and closing cost.

ProfessorChris---250 BCV (Oct), $62, 86 banked 12 pts, all 13 & 14 pts, buyer pays admin fee, seller pays closing & mf (sub 4/10, passed 4/30)

Yes, I agree - DH doesn't want to deal with resale nor does he want to dump a bunch of cash. He likes to finance and pay it off over 2 years. BUT if direct is too high then I'll have a basis to force trying a resale and then it will be just waiting for the 40 / 50 pointer to show

While I was happy for the person who got this great deal through, it made no sense for Disney to let it happen. Even at the the old price of $115.00 per point, Disney would have stood to make $53.00 a point profit if it exercised its ROFR, or as I calculate it, a total profit on this contract of at least $13,250.00 if purchased. Plus when you consider that the Seller was paying for closing costs and maintenance fee, Disney was making even more money. Just how much is enough? Clearly, members on this board (including myself) don't understand what Disney's criteria for exercising its ROFR really are, or else somebody at Disney was asleep on the job.

It has been about 3 week since I last spoke to, or heard from, my guide. Have you heard anything further from your guide as to where you stand on the wait list for bcv?

I received a new guide after my old one left and for interest in not having to deal with my new one that much how does the process work with this? Do you put a deposit down and then they charge you the rest upon the points coming available? We have been looking for 25-75 points at BLT and AKV for a while on resale with our August UY but never see any or when I do they are already sale pending so I am thinking maybe going this way for BLT so just want to know how the process works. Thanks for the help!

I added on direct twice about 18 months ago. Don't know if it's changed since then, but...

No deposit. They take your credit card number. You tell them how many points, which resort and UY. You may or may not have to go on a wait list.

When your points are ready for you, they will charge your credit card. You may or may not get a call from your guide before or after this happens. One time he called us the day the points loaded; the second time I only found out when I looked on line and saw I had a new contract.

Curious and I have ADDONITS right now. I have 160 pts at SSR that i paid $99/point for. If i wanted to add on does anyone know what price they are selling at? Are all resorts priced differently? Because i see now VGF are $145 and AKV are the same(i think). I guess i need to call my guide. I now the PPT has gone up on the new resorts just wondering with all of you on the waitlist what the ppt was.

I was told direct for SSR was $125. That was 2 weeks ago. That's when we looked into resale.
