We did the tour knowing that we only wanted OKW 2057. They had the inventory (100 points--enough for a week in a studio in the time of year we like to go or a 1 bed every other year) in the use year that would work for us. It was literally the easiest thing I've ever purchased in my life. If you have a really high credit score, they really don't even ask for any of your other financial info other than a formality after the fact. We had to finance, but within around 2 years I am hoping we will be done paying for it with tax returns/work bonuses.....the things we were using to rent point from others to go every year. Once this is paid for, our next contract will likely be a resale Animal Kingdom Lodge of maybe 75-100 points. I can justify the direct purchase because it was $155/point. I could've had to wait a long while to find a contract like that resale, and there would be no guarantee that I would even get it/Disney wouldn't have taken it with the 2057 expiration....and then I would've been renting again next year as opposed to just paying on my own contract. Now I have 2019 & 2020 points for next year.Awesome! Were you put on a waitlist for points. If so how long did it take?
