    Thanks, Doug. Now let's hope for a quick closing because I have 100 2010 points that expire on May 31. So you'll either be seeing a "for rent" post from me shortly or I'll be in WDW some time in May. Either way works for me.:cool1:

    Given that it can take anywhere from 2-4 weeks to get from passing ROFR to having your points available, you are cutting it real close. Hope you are closer to the 2 week mark so you have as much time as possible.

    Start looking right now to see what is available in May.

    If you were going to go yourself and if you've got some points available on another contract, you could book yourself something in May right now and then switch the points over when those new points that expire in the end of May get added.

    Thanks for the idea. But my other points are August UY so I wouldn't be able to bank them if I used them for this reservation and then canceled. I'm correct in thinking that, right?

    Correct, Aug UY points have to be banked by the end of March.

    Will keep my fingers grossed for you that the closing goes fast so you can do something with those points.

    Looks like SSR still has studios available in May.

    I received the bad news yesterday. Disney exercised the ROFR.
    HH (Oct) 210 points at $40/PT - 2011-418 pts, 2012 - 210 pts. Seller pays 2012MF. Buyer pays $650 closing cost. I guess it was expected....

    That stinks.....I do not think there is a coincidence between the flurry of ROFR and the beginning of the 2nd quarter. It seemed to be OKW at first, but now there are deals that seemed more than fair a month ago being snatched up left and right by that ROFR monkey:confused:

    There also does not seem to be a coincidence that the monkey loves when MF's are paid by the seller and of course the banked points seem to be in every contract.
