    Just an update. DVC asked me not to have what would have been three UYs, so I relented and took a Feb UY instead of Dec. It's only a couple of months difference, so it's not a big deal. They asked me this about three times after the Dec. points were in my account and already banked! Same two contracts, still 100 points total, just Feb instead of Dec. I really wanted June, but February is okay.

    I hope your guide calls you soon. I guess it depends on how many signed up on that list after I did. I know it was a mad rush because Disney had just announced the upcoming price increase and everyone wanted to get the "lower price," if possible.

    We passed earlier this week at $103 per point for a 100 point contract loaded with 200 points. Thought that was right on the "bubble" of ROFR and got lucky to pass. :cool1:

    Hello Christopher - I do believe I am the seller on this deal, small world! My name is Linda and am listed as the first seller name on the contract. ;) I really hope it passes ROFR as well. I hope you enjoy your stays there. It's our favorite DVC property. Luckily I own more points there so will be cutting back on visits but still staying a few times a year. :)

    PS - Welcome to the DIS! I love these boards, so many helpful people.

    Very cool, we look forward to enjoying it. Here is to a smooth closing. Maybe we will run into you guys there sometime. We bought it mostly for marathon weekend.

    Funny! Reminds me of when a friend purchased resale.... the seller was bragging about the price she received, considered it "stripped" when the next use year was right around the bend full of points. Her attitude and comments nearly cost her the sale.
