    Sorry to hear that. Another OKW with a SEPT UY just went through. It certainly sounds like Disney isn't buying all OKW contract back, just those when they have people on a waiting list. As I recall, out of all the sold out resorts, OKW has the most number of sales each month. Guess it is very popular at the direct price.

    From what I understand, it's the cheapest at direct price and also has the latest end date, so that is understandable.

    This is sort of true. OKW is the least expensive on site DVC resort, but both HHI and VB are less expensive when buying direct. Extended OKW contracts do have a longer expiration date, with only BLT, AUL and VGC being further out.

    That being said, there is a disproportionately high rate of ROFR at OKW as compared to other resorts. I'm sure that there are many factors that influence this, but the fact remains that getting an OKW contract through ROFR is pretty difficult.

    That's true. I should have said cheapest direct out of the WDW resorts. I tend to forget about the other resorts as we visit only WDW. Didn't realize BLT had an additional 3 years on OKW extended either.

    OK - here goes:

    BCV - 75 points @ $78 / pt.
    September use year - all 2011 & 2012 pts
    Buyer pays closing - seller pays MF until 2013
    Submitted for ROFR on 9/28

    I know this is a higher price per pt. than folks have been paying, but this is the EXACT contract we were looking for, and we want to try to get in the system before the end of the year to take advantage of the PAP's.

    What do you think our chances are for passing ROFR? Also, if we pass - we're wanting to book the first week of June in a studio at BCV - what do you think our chances are (since it'll be less than 7 months).

    Thanks!

    Diane

    FWIW (that is, not much) I think yo have a good shot to get past ROFR with this one. Good luck!

    If you are booking at less than 7 months out, I'd say, don't get your heart set on BCV. Be happy with SSR, OKW or AKV, and wait list BCV. You might even stalk your preferred ressie online. But if all goes quickly, you might sneak in your reservation, just before that 7 month window opens. If that happens, you have a much better shot at snagging a BCV studio.

    My resale was 8 weeks from offer to reservation. I managed to grab a 2BR @ BCV for a spring break trip (3/20-3/27) the week before that 7 month window opened. GL!

    Quick question, If we want to book BCV for a week starting on 8/16/2012 does the 7 month window start on February 16th or February 1st?
    Thanks!
