    Have you ever had Disney give word on ROFR in less than 30 days? I wish... We're on day 19 today. Sigh...

    Yes, when the buy your contract from under you....

    It seems that a rule of thumb is that if they are going to exercise ROFR it happens usually in less than 21 or so days.

    If they are going to let you pass you usually find out on a Tuesday or Weds and it is the last Tues or Weds possible that falls with your 30 day period.

    i.e. I submitted on a Weds and found out 4 Weds's later, exactly 28 Days.

    Yes, when we purchased, we passed ROFR in 7 days. That was before any restrictions on re-sale AND IS DEFINATELY NOT THE NORM. I guess I had quite a bit of pixie dust sent my way from the ROFR angels. :-)

    I agree. They usually take as many days as possible before they let a contract pass

    The longer you go the better the odds. My last contract was ROFR'd on day ten, which inluded two weekends and one Monday Holiday (MLK).

    Agreed. If you are the type to worry about passing ROFR, you really only need to worry for the first two weeks. If you hit that mark without hearing anything, you are more than likely home free.

    That's good to hear...we hit 30 days this week...we went to Disney on 1/28 and its a BLT Dec UY, so maybe the fact that we made it this far is a good sign they might not take it...

    I had one that had a verbal OK after 1 day and the written notice came 6 days later. :p

    Not the norm though. And the reason there was a verbal ok was that it was a contract Disney had begun foreclosure on several weeks earlier but then a clerk had accidentally pulled the file so rather than continue the foreclosure they let the owners sell it.
