    Everything is completed!! Now that my points are in the system and I have made my first reservation, it finally feels real!!

    I purchased where I want to stay most, at OKW (not extended) and I am very happy with my purchase:

    Resale TTS w/Magic Vacation Title - (highly recommended). 150 pts at $70/pt. with 76 avail for 09. Sept use year. Took 23 days to pass ROFR, not too bad. Seller pays 09 MF. Buyer pays closing. Closed Friday afternoon 7/10, and called MS Tuesday 7/14 and points were available, and MS walked me through all the info I needed to get set up on the member website as well.

    Booked first trip with my own points for Sept 9-13, 2009!! Was hoping for 1BR STD at BWV (Standard view was available a few weeks ago), but did manage 1BR Pool/Garden, used more points than I wanted to (borrowed some from next year) but I'll get over it. (I do have a waitlist, but will make sure it's canceled at 31 days out - I'm learning about points in holding and all that fun stuff).

    Thanks to everyone for helping me with questions along the way! (I'm sure I'll have more questions for ya too!). Can't believe I am an "owner" now, and not a "renter"
    Thanks everyone! :yay::woohoo::cool1::banana:

    Thanks!
    Oh- Magic Vacation Title is the title company who handles the closing for the resale broker (Timeshare Store). Nancy was terrific! (and so was Robert at the timeshare store!).
