    Thanks everyone!

    O.k. now I don't feel so bad.
    And at least by splitting the MF I'm saving $1022.
    That would be equivalent to.....about $3. less per point, for the 350 pts. I'm purchasing, not to mention the 350 banked points.

    Does anyone know what the savings is for the PAP, or AP for either Disneyland or WDW?

    I dont think you should feel bad at all great contract. I like deals as much as anybody. Have been looking for 100 at BWV with feb UY (optional). Missed like 4 contracts. Finally got email from one of the brokers for $70.00 PP with 100 2012 points banked and all forward feb UY. From time I got the email till I made the offer was 4 minutes. I don't feel bad at all got exactly what I wanted. Could I have haggled and got it maybe. Could I have haggled and lost it most likely, the BWV supply has been. I think you got a great contract at a fair price. The only problem I had was explaining to my wife why I didn't at least ask first:). In my defense I had warned her I would buy the next one I found that was exactly what I wanted. Went to ROFR January 15th should hear from them soon hopefully. Does anyone know if they only release once a week i.e. thursday or do they process everyday and release them when processed?
    Just curious
    Congratulations
    Rad

    We were considering BWV (75-100 points)...good thing we didn't wait around on a contract there as it seems it is in high demand.

    I am curious, too, when Disney signs off on ROFRs...if it's every day or just once a week cause we went to ROFR a week after you (radmcg). You should hear soon...come back and let us know when you hear.

    Thanks Rad,

    I just received word my contract has been sent off to Disney today.
    So the waiting begins.
    Please let us know when you hear; that should give me a good idea of how long mine will take.

    Congratulations to you too!

    It really makes you wonder what all goes on in ROFR that it takes so long to hear back :confused3

    Just heard from Shawn Ray at Fidelity that Disney caught a typo in our contract during review for ROFR and that we need to sign an addendum to correct it. The contract number was a 1 instead of a 7 at the one spot. No big deal to send in the addendum, but glad they caught it.

    Makes you wonder though....this contract went to ROFR on Tuesday. They already caught it today so they are already reviewing it. I always thought the delay was it sitting in some queue somewhere. So what do they do for the next 20 something days?

    I think they have the next 20 days for the contract to sit on a desk...... And if by some chance somebody wants to buy direct, and your contract could make that happen,then they can take it. If they have no takers, then they let you buy. But that is just my guess. :)

    I have been reading this thread now for a few weeks and wondering the same exact thing. I have only been in rofr for two weeks but I can't stand the waiting. I am sitting in a blizzard in NY at the moment and praying I get through over the next 7-10 days.

    We went to contract on OKW on 1/26. $52, 164 Sep UY, 164 points for 2012 + 164 for 2013 + 164 for 2014. I paid mf and closing. Avg cost/pt after factoring in mf and closing is $59. Don't have a good feeling after finding the rofr thread.

    They make you wait. Disney has no reason to make the resale process any easier. In fact, many prospective resale buyers have cited the long wait as a reason for buying direct. Mission accomplished.


    Not to rain on your parade, but the chances aren't good. Disney has been sucking up OKW contracts like a vacuum lately. Good luck! :)

    Good luck Sil!! I hope it goes through for you. That's a sweet deal. The seller agreed on a price lower than your counter offer? We are waiting for our BWV add-on points to be posted in DVC's system.

    I'm a long time lurker and was planning to wait to see what happened with ROFR before posting, but I made the same exact deal as Joey7295 (except my contract is 210 points). Ours went to Disney on 2/5.

    I'm pretty sure we purchased from the same owner because I know he had two contracts (and the second one matches Joey7295's info). I thought about picking up both but this is our first time buying a DVC contract so we wanted to be a little cautious.

    To be honest, I'll be shocked if Disney doesn't ROFR it but fingers crossed! Already thinking about squeezing in a vacation before the 2011 points expire ;-)

    Went to ROFR this week.

    BLT 200 pts Dec UY - $95. 180 banked 2011, 200 points banked 2012 and all 200 going forward. Buyer paying closing, admin and MF.

    Really liked this contract having all those points available now and then 400 available Dec. I'm happy and now the wait begins.

    That is an awesome deal. Now I feel like I paid WAY too much for my BWV. If I had only waited 2 more weeks ....
