Still Waiting from a January 2nd contract from TTS.

Jason says, almost no ROFR activity this week, and we should know by Friday.

This is the first time I have been nervous!

Notified last week that we've passed, VWL 50 points all '05 points. We paid $77 per point plus the '05 maintenance and closing cost of $400.

Pixie dust to all who are waiting.

I just heard today that we passed and I didn't even know we were waiting. I was still waiting for TSS to receive my deposit. 100 points OKW $76 a pt.
So I don't know how long it took, but it can't have been more than 10 days.

Thrilled and shocked in equal measure!!!!!!

The other forum has 2 mentions of VWL being bought back by Disney at $75 per point.

Jmatias and Scotch...yes, we are buying a BCV contract!! We are, however selling our VWL. We both LOVE the resort, but we don't need 600 pts (even though I'm SURE we could find a way to use the points). DH really wanted to sell our BWV, but we have borrowed all of our points for an "impromtu" trip with friends in May, and I don't want to sell it stripped. Plus, DH loves VWL enough that I KNOW he will want to do a small add-on there eventually, and he didn't really like BWV all that much...but, I LOVED it!! If I allow him to sell that one, I know I will NEVER get BWV points again.

Anyway, when we went on our first trip "home" in Dec. he said, "Well, I really like the resorts we own at, but why didn't you buy BCV?" To which I replied, "You know....having an opinion BEFORE I bought would've been helpful, 'Mr. I don't care!!'"

But, unfortunately...I fell in love with BCV, too. I didn't think I would as the DVC wing seemed like a not-too-well-planned-out-afterthought when you look at it on paper. I mean, no rooms on the water (but, hey...you can get a "road" view), and I just didn't feel like there would be that much "going on" on that side of the lake (i.e. BORING). But, one night we went over to Beaches 'n Cream to eat...and my heart just melted!!! I loved EVERYTHING!!! I didn't expect the resort to be so ELEGANT (It is everthing I thought the Grand Floridian would be (btw...I was VERY disappointed in the GF)). SAB is SOO cool (even though I am allergic to chlorine...my dd will love it when she gets older). The serenity of the lobby was a sharp contrast to the noisiness of BWV's lobby. I loved watching the artist draw pictures of people, and I loved being on the same level as the water when you are outside. I really loved seeing the sand everywhere as opposed to a boardwalk. There was a pirate band playing on the beach where they were having a private party....they were VERY good, and SOOO funny!!! I could go on and on about all the things we loved at BCV (the store is much nicer than the one at BWV. We kept walking over there to shop. The lobby seemed bigger, and at the same time "slower". We loved the architecture, the "water theming", the location being right off of Epcot, and so on.) It was just one of those moments where you know that you "fit" with something. We "fit" with Beach Club....and no one was more surprised than we were!!

Don't get me wrong...I still love my BWV (I wouldn't want anyone to think I am "trashing" it...the rooms are GORGEOUS, and I LOVE the standard view option...it's like a discount with a GREAT location), but we just wanted BCV, too.

So...we started our "quest". I got on the waitlist at DVC (I'm still on there, actually), but my guide said a MINIMUM 8-12 month wait if I'm lucky!! So, we started looking, and found a REALLY sweet contract with almost full banked points. So, of course I am now thinking that Disney will take it back, and it's really hard to say with BCV, "Oh, don't worry!! If we don't get this one, another one will come along"...because BCV's with banked points don't come along that often.

So, that is why I started this thread...so, I could see just how nervous I should be.

Anyway...congrats to all who have passed!! And, good luck to those who are waiting!!

Here's the stats of those who have posted:

Greenban - still waiting on a contract that went on Jan 2nd

Bobbiwoz - passed (mid-Jan) 50 VWL $77 all '05 points intact

leise - passed (1/19, in less than 10 days) 100 OKW $76

Amanda C - passed (mid-Jan) 70 HHI $70 all '05 points intact

Beca - waiting on 150 BCV $80

If anyone wants to be added to this list, just post and I will keep it going for awhile.

Yeeks! Are they buying back everything at 75?!

Hmmm,

I haven't been paying attention to whats been bought back, except for this thread. Do you think WDW is Rofr on all points $75 or less?

I'm going to be really sad if this is true
