How long do you think the waiting lists will be for each resort?

    At best 4 spots lol but 4 is 4 I guess. I am not in a rush and am at least glad I know where we sit, even if it meant no movement.

    What is interesting is my guide has never made mention of the 6 month expiration that folks have been told...it will be interesting to see what happens come 10/2 if we are still on the list.

    From what I understood, people who got on the waiting list by 3/19 got grandfathered in at the old price for however long it took. People who waitlisted after that date at the old prices, only get it for 6 months.

    Just received a call from my guide. My waitlist for BWV points came in today. December use year. I went on the list 3/11. I guess some of the contracts bought back have closed.

    That's wonderful! I have a feeling we are still a long ways off but it's some movement at least :) I'd like them by September and in many ways longer wait is better for pro rated dues, lol!

    I've been waiting at least 2 months for BCV. I hope I get my points soon so I can book my entire Spring break at BCV vs. splitting my reservations until I get the additional BCV points. My 11 month window just opened up, so I'm very anxious.

    Our 11month window doesn't open till Nov but we are getting anxious now. If we get 2012 pts I would have to rent them because we would be traveling in our 2014 use year

    When did you go on the list again? We are an Aug UY also and went on March 17th...but we are in a state that they haven't approved the license or whatever it is that they issue to a timeshare company that allows them to market in the state....I really hope they get this worked out soon!!! I want my points!!!

    TIA

    Given I have moved from a person waiting on a resale contract that was eventually RORFd to a person that is now on the wait list to buy direct, I am know thinking about these issues as well!

    Two things came to my mind:

    1- The wait list is comprised of both add ons and new DVC members looking to buy an old resort. This causes a conflict for Disney because I am sure they would much prefer to have the new members buy the open, new resort (what they are currently promoting). Therefore, making the wait list too efficient works against their primary goal of selling the new resorts and I think all the add on DVC members are caught in the cross fire. They do not want ALL the resorts to have the same access for new members. Having new members wait a few months for an old resort while immediately getting the new resort is an incentive for the new resort.

    2- I wonder how many people, when they come up on the wait list, say "no thanks". Therefore, if Disney kept buying old points quickly they could fear draining the list of real buyers and end up getting stuck with the points. By keeping the list longer, they are more assured the points they do buy will sell because they can work a longer list to get them sold. Again, if they were too efficient, they might get stuck holding points they cannot quickly sell because people drop off the list come decision time.

    These were just my thoughts on why Disney might not like really short wait lists.
