    That would be even better, I'm most concerned about losing my place in line but would love to get the same price. I guess I will find out soon, only a little over a month until I'm at 6 months.

    I also called my guide and he said just the opposite - the old price will only be held for 6 months. After that, the price goes up. Could someone please clarify.

    My guide said "as long as it takes" to fufill the list. Just double checked, no mention of being kicked off at 6 months, or price increase. That said...it hasn't moved at all for my resort and UY in over 2 months. My strong suspicion at this point is it won't, until December as if they had reacquired any contracts with 2012 points, there would have been movement. It will be interesting to see come 12/1 if the list all of a sudden has activity.

    Now I have to decide what to do. I'll probably just stay on the list to see what happens but have to figure out how to handle the 2 ressies I'd hoped to make in Sept and Oct.

    Sigh.

    Wow. Are you looking for a small contract? I get the impression that those are taking longer.

    The long as it takes simply means according to my guide I don't lose my place in line at 6 months, we are almost at 5. They fufill in order as long as the points match up with what they have so a larger one could actually take longer or be harder for them to fulfill, supposedly there are 320 points ahead of me, several people so I imagine most are on the smaller side. We want 105. I've not seen anything in resale that size or smaller for my UY.

    Maybe some hope for those waiting for BCV points - my 140 Feb UY points just came through! :cheer2: And my guide said that she just had another 40 point contract come through yesterday at BCV.

    I was on the wait list since April..

    I have been on the wait list from 3/4/13 for 25 points at BCV (Oct. U.Y.) at the old price of $115.00/pt. Have not heard anything positive from my Guide and do not expect to as my 6 months will be up on 9/4/13. I realize prices are going up at warp speed (just saw one BCV contract sell for $110.00/pt and it was stripped of 2013 points) but have decided to wait 1 more week and then have my name taken off the list as I do not want to pay the new price of $130.00/pt.

    Any thoughts about staying on the list after the 6 months price lock is gone?

    I have been on the list since 4/11 for 50 BCV pts with an Oct or Sept use year. I will wait but if they call after the date I will say no that's why you waited this long for a reason. my guide called me twice saying we are in the single digits I am wondering what number we are. I am thinking of calling him today.

    Just checked with my guide about my waitlist request for 25 points for BCV (Oct. UY) - my 6 month lock at the old $115.00 per point expires Sept 4th - my guide told me that there were 2 people ahead of me who were also still waiting!

    Disney had the opportunity to exercise its ROFR on a few contracts but never did, for whatever reason - I believe that Disney never had any intention of selling at the old price, so I have canceled my waitlist and will be closing on a Resale that has previously cleared ROFR.

    Hope waitlist persons #3 and beyond, who were behind me, move up soon so they don't pay the higher price per point.

    Yeah!:yay:

    I had to wait for BCV points around 4 years ago, when I was in the market. It's not easy to wait, is it?:goodvibes

    We have been on he WL since Mar 11th we are waiting on 50 BCV pts with an Sept or Oct use year. And our guide (whom I called on Friday) said that we are #4 on the list their are 3 people ahead of us for an Sept use year and same with Oct . I told him I hope we get them before Nov because that is our 11month window. I then asked him if it goes after the 6 months for the old price does that mean we have to pay the new price and he goes no we have the old price locked in . I just hope we get them before Nov.

    Our guide told us that the price was only locked for 6 months. I hope your person is correct and mines wrong.
