    We signed our contract today for 230 pts at boardwalk villas today! I'm so excited now the waiting begins. Our terms were $55 pt, buyer pays 2012 maint fees, seller pays closing costs. My in laws have been members since 95 I think they are happy because now we will stop asking them to use their points. I spoke with Disney about purchasing bwv direct and they wanted $115 a point. :scared:.

    I love the bcv and bwv but after reading all the posts here about the location of the DVC bcv I decided on bwv. We have 3 young kids so we love that we can walk to epcot and hs parks without having to fold up the strollers. All the restaurants within walking distance are awesome, love blue zoo at the dolphin.

    Congratulations, We have yet to stay at BWV but others say its great. We have stayed at BCV and you are right, the walk to Epcot is great. We try to go in Oct for the food and wine festival every year.

    It's nice that the walk is so close after too much tequila in Mexico :cool1:
    I have not actually stayed a bwv either. We have stayed at the swan and dolphin numerous times on star wood points and always walk around and grab a bite at the boardwalk. My in laws own at old key west so we go with them we usually stay there, they are very spacious. We love AKL too and have stayed at kidani a couple times. We love that the 1 bedrooms have 2 bathrooms but it's just so far from the action.

    $115/point? I'd be embarrassed to sell someone a contract at that price knowing it could be had for half that. Wow.

    Welcome Home!

    Congratulations and good luck with ROFR. That's a great price/pt! We just stayed in a BWV-1BR BW view and it was awesome. Our home is AKV, but we enjoy trying out the other resorts as well.

    Let us know how things work out!

    I intend on keeping this thread active through the whole process for the benefit of future purchasers. We also booked today using my in-laws point 3nights at the grand Californian hotel for a total of 168 points -we wanted downtown disney view- that we will then use our points once we close to book for them the regular DVC properties. I did not want to take the chance of the wait list for the vgc not coming through for us. It nice that through them we have access to the Disney collection etc and can transfer points to them. We are going to bank what's left for hopefully a trip to aulani next year.

    Hi all! I'm joining in to follow along as we just had an offer on BWV verbally accepted around noon today :cool1: and now I am anxiously awaiting docs to sign and return so that this can get submitted to Disney for ROFR and hopefully move along to a speedy closing! It will be great to follow along with the OP's experience and see how it compares to ours. Good luck to all for of us in the waiting phase! :cutie:

    Congratulations and good luck with ROFR. It looks like a good deal.

    Stayed at BWVs last November and I loved it. The atmoshpere, entertainment on the BW and close distance to EPCOT and HS are all pluses. But you already know that.

    I recently bought a VWL contract (resale) and it took me about 70 days from offer to close, but my closing was delayed 10 days becuase the orginal owners had a vacation scheduled.

    Thanks for joining in on the wait, hopefully yours will end well for you very soon :banana:. I am also using fidelity, funny my sellers did not have e-mail either I wonder if they are the same as I know she said mine was their final contract the were selling, implying they were selling off all their contracts. Mine is also a feb UY and seller was asking $60. :rolleyes1

    I'm surprised that just in the two weeks since I began our process how fewer BWV contracts are listed right now. That makes me really hope we pass ROFR the first time around as to go back to the offer stage with not much inventory to choose from stinks!

    :wizard: I wish all us future BWV owners pixie dust as we make our way through this process.:wizard:
