    Well it looks like I'm joining the ranks of the DVC owners. My offer was just accepted for AKV. 320 points at $110/point. There are 320 banked from 2017 as well as all 2018 and 2019 points. It is a March use year. Now lets see if it passes ROFR. I'm hopeful that it will. If not, back to the drawing board.

    Cheers,

    Congrats and Welcome Home! It will pass and that's a lot of points. You will need to purchase 75 points direct to get the "perks" now that they have changed the rules.

    Congrats! We closed on our resale AKV about 2 years ago. We passed ROFR at $85 CPP. That being said, there is always demand for some of the older resorts, but you should be safe with AKV.

    yes. I'm not sure if we will do that. I'm not sure the "perks" are worth 75 points direct even at the cheapest DVC property. We'll see how much the kids enjoy it as they grow up. If we will be staying there a lot then perhaps it will be worth it. Right now the kids are only 4 yo and 7 mos so we've got some time.

    Thank you. That's the key I guess, you've got to own it long term to really make it worth buying. I'm hoping to create some great memories with my kids there, that's why I bought it.

    Congratulations! I am sure it will pass ROFR at the price you are paying, esp for a big contract.

    DVC was not doing many ROFRs as of the end of last year. They were mainly buying back SSR and a few OKW at the end of last year. Aulani passed at any price.

    Just an FYI, last year DVC did ROFR in one week on two of my contracts. I was surprised how fast it was.

    Looking at the disboards it seems to be around 2 weeks right now. We’ll see I guess. I just sent the signed contract and escrow deposit today so hopefully in to Disney by Monday.

    My problem was never with Disney - but Orange county - their property dept can take weeks.

    You will love DVC.
