    Has anyone out there received a ROFR decision (good or bad) very quickly? I know Disney has 30 days but I'm curious if anyone got an answer much earlier than that.

    Sorry, but I have closed 3 times on resales (all 3 times we passed ROFR) and each time it took 28-30 days. I have another one in ROFR now (about 17-18 days). It sure would be nice to hear next week, but I expect it will be the following week. Here's hoping that it's next week pixiedust:

    When did yours go to ROFR?

    I did notice, when compiling the ROFR list, that a few -this past week or so- passed in about 3 weeks. I am a little excited about that, but with my luck, I'll be 30+ days (I'm not exactly sure when mine went to ROFR, I got the deposit and signed check in on 4/20). Also, many times Disney ROFRs contracts w/in the first 2 weeks (though somebody got ROFRd after 30 days this week too...strange week).

    I don't see why they would exercise the option early. Someone might buy direct within the 30 days and your contract in rofr may be the perfect fit. Why would Disney give up their option early?

    Last summer I was notified quickly that Disney exercised ROFR on my OKW contract (11 days or so don't remember off the top of my head).
    The BWV that did pass took almost 30 days to be notified.

    If you look at the ROFR thread most have the date it was submitted and the date of the decision.

    Good Luck

    Disney drags out all resale processing, estoppal, ROFR, account building, loading, web access, and ID cards. It's their unpublished way of getting resales buyers to consider buying direct.

    From what I have seen the earlier you hear on anything the more likely it is that it did not pass. They sometimes decide that fairly quickly.

    Our first contract we attempted was rofr'd exactly 2 weeks after it was sent - our second attempt was taken 18 days later - so pretty quickly.
    We are waiting on our 3rd attempt which was sent on 4/18 - the longest we have waited so we are hoping this one will pass!

    Sent for Rofr 3/25, waived 4/22. We just closed on 5/9. But when will the money be released? We are the sellers. :sad:

    Probably if they have something of their interest, and will drag if possibly of interest, otherwise will let it go, looking thru the data, loaded low price contract they will take it.

    two of mine took three weeks, but one was just a matter of days.

    I actually had points in my account within 2 weeks..

    almost as fast as direct

    Actually I bought a contract 3 years ago through the Timeshare Store and from beginning to end (offer to close) took approximately 1 month. The reason - the sellers were being deployed to Iraq.

    The TSS processed the paperwork quickly and contacted Disney to expedite the ROFR process (I believe this didn't even take a week) due to the circumstances. :cool1:
