Oooh...thanks. I see a few small contracts for resale, not too long ago (sold now though) around $110-120 pp. Might as well buy direct and get the UY you need and fully loaded points too.

DH jokingly said he was waiting to get to WDW (we go on 12/19) to buy my Christmas present which would be 200 points at VGF. I actually said "no, I don't want that...I just want 35 BCV points"....but then we both agreed to not spend anymore money on DVC right now (we just added 150 points this year and 75 last year). What a dummy I am though...should have held him accountable for 200 VGF points.

I agree, this board has been great for me too with lots of friendly helpful advice. I don't have any regrets. I did lack some knowledge and confidence in buying resale at first. If I didn't buy direct at first I probably would not have bought in at all. I do feel that I got a good price at the time too. But, since then and learning so much I did decide to add on through resale and again got lots of info and advice here about that. Can't wait for our first visit to BW in March!!!

I'm looking for a small add-on at BWV. Been on the direct waiting list now for a Sept UY at BWV for 2 months. No idea how long the list is; every time I ask my guide he is vague and says he needs to check. Then never follows up with me. Maybe afraid to tell me the bad news?

Meanwhile scouring the resale brokers but nothing small has come in yet. SIGH....

Now there is a direct price increase. Is it only on VGF and Aulani, does anyone know?

Gosh, I hope so. Can't believe how expensive the classic resorts are now.

Hello fellow members! First, a little background: Long time reader of these boards, proud new DVC member, and first time poster. My wife and I recently made the decision to (finally) become DVC members after a trip with our young sons in early November. Disney has always played a nice role in our lives. We live in Tampa and had our first date as a couple attending MVMCP in 2007, got engaged at MK in 2009, and found out my wife was pregnant with our third child while we were there in April of this year. WDW seems to hold a special place for us.

We had casually talked back and forth about joining DVC since 2009, and the time was finally right for us. It also helped that GF was a resort my wife has been in love with, so VGF was perfect for us. We purchased two contract: one for 250 points and one for 150 points.

True to form we already have addonitis. Living so close we will end up taking many trips during the year, usually shorter trips rather than longer ones. All of our extended family also lives in the area, so they will be with us frequently as well. The large amount of points just makes sense for us and how we travel to Disney.

We made the decision for Food and Wine time that we wanted a 150 point BWV contract to enjoy as an adults only trip every year. We love the Food and Wine festival. I decided we also wanted to purchase directly from Disney (gasp!) instead of purchasing resale (I've done research, and direct is just what we decided this time.) I called our sales guy and he informed me there is a waitlist for BWV which I was added to. For June UY I was third on the list. So my actual question: Does anyone know how long this waitlist process averages buying direct? This was two weeks ago, but I have no clue how long this normally takes. Is 150 points a lot to add on for one resort buying direct from a sold out resort? I'd love to hear from someone else who went through the process instead of just getting the scripted answer from sales about how "They don't know but they'll call me as soon as they're in."

All thoughts are appreciated!
Did your wait list come thru or did you move on? I just went on the wait list for 50 Aug UY points. I have no idea what number I am on the list but I was told it would take months. It would be awesome if it came thru before August so we could get 2013 points to bank but I won't hold my breath.

Our waitlist to buy actually just came through about a week and a half ago. I saw on another board that someone else who was waitlisting for BWV direct also came through near the same time, so there must have been a little surge right after the holidays.

Have faith, it will happen!

Did you get any idea of points availability for direct resale? I'm wondering if there would still be a wait list? Also is it still $130 per point? I would love to grab 50 more at BWV.

Thanks

The current price for member add on is $123 a point. It's technically $130 a point with a $7 a point developer credit. I'm not sure at what point the developer credit kicks in though.

I just want 30 at BCV or BWV...just a teeny tiny 30 little points and I'd be on ...for Valentine's Day... Mother's Day...my birthday...our anniversary all rolled into one gift.
We could do 4 weeknights in a studio for F&W every other year.

Thanks! It's worth looking into.
