Disney just pulled our OKW Aug 150 point contract.

Sorry to hear that, it does take a bit of luck to get an OKW contract through ROFR these days.
Mine is about the same except UY. Still waiting... I'm on pins and needles here!!!!
After getting 2 OKW contracts through ROFR, and then losing a third one all at $56 per point, I thought long and hard about increasing the price to get it done. After talking with 2 brokers concerning what they are seeing, I decided to go at $58 per point for this round. This is real close to what the brokers' recent experience at passing. Although anything is possible, I like to play the odds.
I believe that is good strategy . Dispite others saying different It's worth it to pay a little more for what is believed to be a better chance of landing the contract.Even if it's just in your own head .If you get it it will be $$ well spent
My contract enters its 3rd week at ROFR.
I am losing hope!!!!
I stayed at OKW in spring. I tried to find the right contract. 6 months ago I passed ROFR at $55 for 160 points at AKL and stayed there at Christmas. I felt they would have accepted at $50 but I did not think it would pass ROFR. I would have been just as happy with OKW but now I have what I consider to be a better expiration date. Look at other resorts - you might me just as happy with a good deal elsewhere.
Just the opposite. Recent history suggests that if Disney is going to ROFR a contract they do so quickly, usually in the second week but sometimes even sooner. The old axiom "no news is good news" certainly applies here. Good luck!
Thanks! I also saw from the ROFR thread that its taking them 25-28 days lately. Maybe it was the holidays!
So, I'm STILL hoping!!!!
Hope has ended
I heard today - they're exercising their ROFR.
It's for 150 OKW at $50/pt Oct 2012 UY, 2012 pts and beyond available.
*sigh* Time to start over!
