    I currently have April and I'm waiting to close on a March. I bought my contracts because they were the quantity I wanted, at the resort I wanted and at a price I could live with. I'm an accountant by day so keeping detailed track of numbers is in my nature. I don't foresee a problem keeping everything straight.

    We used to have 4 UY, but we sold one last year.
    We now have
    BWV (Oct)
    SSR (Dec)
    VCG&BLT (Jun).

    We mostly use our points at the home resort at 11 months, so it works very well for us. In fact the contracts that confuse me the most are the two that are on the same UY. Sometimes I have to do a little clicking around to figure out which home resort points are which when planning to book a ressie at 11months.
    If we had to combine points to make a reservation, it might be a little trickier, but that is where the once per year point transfer comes into play.
    I don't think I would want to tackle 2 UYs for the same resort, but maybe the work around for this is to transfer all the points from one contract to the other each year. But, then you have to have a good record keeping system. I can see point transfers online from the same resort/same UY, but not if they are different.

    That's exactly what I want to do! 11 month out a home resort gives you best value...ESPECIALLY if its a BWV or AKV.

    Great question OP.... we just put in for some more points at the VWL and it has a December UY and our other two contracts are June.

    But like other people posted I was tired of waiting for the right UY and jumped on the small contract that came up. Let's just hope I will pass ROFR pixiedust:

    I was the same way. I kept trying and trying to match my UY and the number of points I wanted for a BWV and it just never came available. Instead, I jumped on a contract yesterday that matched the points I wanted at BWV but had a different UY. I guess I will see how much trouble this will be if it passed ROFR.

    Different UYs doesn't equate to two membership numbers, does it? Isn't it just different contracts under the same membership number? I hope so since I just bought a different UY from my other two. TIA.

    Different UYs will in fact mean that you have two separate membership numbers. However, if your contracts are titled exactly the same, you can access them both with one login ID for your online account.

    Yes, you will now have two memberships. As mentioned, you may be able to see them under the same log in on the membership, but to use the points together for a single nights reservation, you will have to transfer points.

    With minor exceptions it's like two different owners.

    One major exception is that Disney still looks at you as one entity for 'commercial renting' even if you have multiple memberships.

    I'm not sure that's true and not sure they can enforce it if it is, esp if the names are not all the same. However, it'd only apply to very limited people. Thus it might be a big deal for them if true but not for most of us.
