    Thank you, I'm excited about being close to finally being a DVC member so no matter what I'm happy, but you just made me feel a lot better about it, but now that I've seen more research, I'll do more leg work next time lol

    Hope so. Want to reserve something nice for a family trip to celebrate our
    30th wedding anniversary in June. Afraid what we want will be gone before our contract closes. That's why we went for a contract with 2012 and 2013 points so we could all (9 of us) stay a full week. Keeping our fingers crossed.

    We had a trip planned for early march and I knew everything at BLT would be gone before I closed so I went ahead and rented points, but we have another trip in mind to use the actual points on, Good luck

    I feel like I overpaid on my first contract so I was a little more selective this time. I made four other offers that didn't work out before coming to a deal on this one.

    Unfortunately, the package referred to turned out to be some additional luggage tags for our trip coming up on 12/8. BUT, on Saturday our membership number did arrive in the mail. We registered on the member site and they told us that we could go to the sales center at Saratoga Springs to get our membership cards printed out. We are hoping to be able to go to the Merry Mixer on 12/11. :yay:

    Through the contract documents, we just found out that this contract has 100 2012 points on it that weren't listed on the listing! They'll expire 2/28/13 but we have a trip planned on 2/16/13-2/24/16 and so we'll be able to use these to upgrade our room or rent out. It was such a nice surprise!

    So, it was 3 weeks exactly!! Just got an e-mail today from Fidelity that Disney waived our ROFR!! We now are owners of SSR. Sellers were asking $60, we negotiated at $50 for 160 points, August use year!! Submitted on Nov. 13, passed on December 4. Yeah!! Now, we have to get the hang of this Vacation Club, since we are newbies!:cheer2:
