Buying direct Question

Am I able to buy an initial contract for less than 160 points direct?

Short answer, yes. We bought 100 points and got 20 extra points (because of the special offer). Our guide was great in helping us figure out what we needed, and that was just the right amount for us.

This is a link to current direct pricing. Looks like you could get 100 points at AKV, Aulani and BLT only. Have heard of exceptions.

I knew someone who was able to buy that amount for BWV. I think they have become pretty lenient in allowing new buyers in with small contracts.

They will do just about anything so long as you are very straight forward with them about what your ACTUAL needs are. If you don't need 160 points, they will be willing to work with you on what WILL meet your needs.

It all depends on how hungry Disney is. If sales are slow they lower the minimum, brisk sales means a 160 or above minimum.

Looking at your signature...

If you don't mind my asking a nosy question- do you have smaller contracts with all of them, or bigger ones?

I did 130 points at BCV last June. My guide offered me just enough for a week's stay in Oct which was 106 points but I wanted some wiggle room.
