Our first contract we attempted was rofr'd exactly 2 weeks after it was sent - our second attempt was taken 18 days later - so pretty quickly.
We are waiting on our 3rd attempt which was sent on 4/18 - the longest we have waited so we are hoping this one will pass!

Sent for Rofr 3/25, waived 4/22. We just closed on 5/9. But when will the money be released? We are the sellers.

Probably if they have something of their interest, and will drag if possibly of interest, otherwise will let it go, looking thru the data, loaded low price contract they will take it.

Actually I bought a contract 3 years ago through the Timeshare Store and from beginning to end (offer to close) took approximately 1 month. The reason - the sellers were being deployed to Iraq.

The TSS processed the paperwork quickly and contacted Disney to expedite the ROFR process (I believe this didn't even take a week) due to the circumstances.

In the past three months I have had three of four contracts pass. I heard back in 10 days on the contract that Disney exercised ROFR on. The 10 days spanned two weekends and a Holiday. On the three contracts that passed, each went approx 27-28 days as I heard on the Tuesday prior to day 30. I am currently awaiting Disney's response on a fifth contract that will come on day 30+. Communicataion from the broker said it was submitted 4/11, but still waiting to hear (guess which broker). I also have another that should be sent to Disney sometime this week and I anticipate that it will take the full 30 days. Early news usually equals bad news.

I agree with this. It's their way to punish people.

Funny thing is that I have been reading all over that the waitlists are taking MONTHS, so really it's just about as fast to go through resale now, costs about half - the only stressful part is that first 30 days.... so if you have the stomach for it, and you want a sold out resort - it really is the best way to go. Unless of course you have personal reasons for WANTING to go direct.

I am SO HAPPY we went resale this time.
