    If you are in a hurry to make any reservations with your new points, call back tomorrow and instead speak with Member Administration, same phone number, different menu choice. :)

    Option #1 is MS, #2 is Administration. If you are in the system, MS can look you up, give them your SSN to search by.

    My guess is that Administration is tired of new resale buyers calling. They may have instituted a new policy of not giving out any info. We have never received anything but our member ID in the mail when buying resale.

    Ok I'll try #1 soon . You're probably correct about them being tired of folks like me being anxious. Thanks for help.

    OK I tried once more and still nothing. MS told me to contact my broker(he seemed unsure of himself) I did and she called who she normally works with at Disney and there is a new policy in place of not giving new members their numbers until they get that "letter". Done trying hope the letter comes soon.

    Ooooooh that's a bummer. We closed on 10/17 and was hoping I could call at the end of the week to get my number. Itching to start planning vacations! Thanks for the update on your experience.

    Ours closed on 10-18 so we too are waiting for that coveted letter. Does it come as an e-mail or by regular mail?

    It comes snail mail. Ours was sent from Disney on the 19th and (fingers crossed) I hope to get it today. Silly that they have the number and won't give it because the girl in MS said if I don't receive by this friday to call her back.Then , I assume, she would give me info on phone?:confused3

    Whew. Finally closed today. Twenty days after we received the final contract papers. Guess they weren't kidding when they said to not bother paying for overnight delivery when we returned our buyer stuff on day one. Now it seems, another Disney imposed delay before we're loaded. But for half price, I'm still glad I went resale!

    I see. We were/are in the same boat as you. Closed on 10/10 and have been waiting for something to come in the mail. We received the letter with the member number yesterday and was wondering if that was enough to get the required info for the for the website or if we have to wait for the additional packet to come in 4-6 weeks.

    The member number that was sent in the mail should be enough to log in as a DVC member. If it is not, call MS to work through it. I can't post a link because I'm new to the boards, but searching "DVC home page" will get you the link.

    Good luck!

    Congratulations! It must be a relief to be able to stop sweating it out, and make that reservation!
