It's a great deal, and a savings of close to $24,000 over buying direct. My questions is, how frequently do you plan on going to Hawaii? Is that going to be a good home resort for you?

Congrats on your purchase. :)

We live in Vancouver and travel to Hawaii every year for two weeks.

I just came back from Aulani and spent over $10k for a 1 bedroom suite.

That IS a great deal! I haven't seen something like that show up in my email listing that I get... But with subsidized MF's and such a low price, I would hold my breath for the 30 day rofr. Keep us posted!

So that would be a yes! Congrats again.

That's an incredibly good deal!
Maybe too good? Disney is quite aggressive with ROFR of subsidized contracts. I hope everything will go smooth with ROFR. :wizard:

antpag101 01-21-2013 09:17 AM

Will keep you posted

I've been wondering what subsidized maintenance fees are for some time now... what's that mean?:confused3

To OP, considering what I've seen, you got a GREAT deal (yeah, let us know if it passes ROFR PLEASE!!)

We bought Aulani and had subsidized dues. In a nutshell, the early calculation of what the dues s/b to adequately maintain the property was questioned by the state.

Disney then suspended all further Aulani sales while they reworked the numbers to satisfy what Hawaii wanted.

When they started selling again, the dues were higher for all new contracts written after that date, but for early owners the original dues stood.

But, here's why we took advantage of Disney's offer to sell Aulani back when all this was announced. The amount of the subsidy was fixed as the difference between the original and revised dues. As the dues increase each year, the subsidy amount does not. So as a percentage of the total dues owed, what now looks like a lot will look less valuable in the future.
