Gotta a super big surprised today. Contract had 2020 UY points despite not being told about them at purchase, AND member services late banked the points without me even asking. Awesome experience.

The process after closing was miserable, DVC would ignore mine and my broker’s emails, would later reply stating they were missing paperwork that had been sent, they were simply awful, but It’s done and I can enjoy my points finally, still worth it to save 45% over direct.

Updated: Points are in my account! I’m not actually sure when they showed up, as we’re vacationing in Yellowstone (since the 14th) so I haven’t been checking as most of the time we had no WiFi/cell service. I’m at the “original Wilderness Lodge” (Old Faithful Inn) and checked on my account, and the points are there!!

However my deed is STILL not showing on the Beaufort County website.

Should I be concerned that my deed is STILL not showing up on the Beaufort County deed search?

I do have an electronic copy of the document stamped by the County office, so I should be fine, but this definitely worries me.

I just got off the DVC chat. After waiting 4 weeks for the log-in info to get in for my membership number, etc. (Closing 27 July, Recorded 28 July, the 2 e-mails about midnight UK time 26 August, so essentially 27 August for us) - it now seems the wait for resale to have points loaded is 3 to 4 weeks.

(I know some people are calling to have this done quicker, but this is what I was told for the regular process. The booking window for the trip I need is 15 November, so not so much that I want them now, now, now , as the 2 months for Disney associated delays...)

Got my welcome home emails today! Offer accepted and contract sent to Disney June 21st and membership ID received Sept 9. Total days : 79. I feel like I’m in a lucky minority of less than 90 days. However, the website isn’t letting me log in and MS is nothing but a fast busy signal. Must be some issues there.
