Hmmmm

You can be skipped.

I waitlisted two 100 pt contracts for HHI in January (I have a June UY)- I decided to decrease the number of points a few weeks later and switched to a 100 pt contract and a 60 point contract. The 60, because of the change, went to the back of the line. The unchanged 100 point contract kept it's place in line.

The day before yesterday, my 60 point waitlist came through. The 100 is still waiting even though it's first in line for points.

So, if the points don't match up, you will be skipped.

Disney doesn't have to match a 100 point request with a 100 point buy back. They can pool the points and break them up into what ever counts they need.

Agreed. What I should have said is, if your waitlist is more points than Disney has available, they won't hold the points for you and wait til they get more. You'll be skipped and the points will be given to someone below you who is waiting on a small number of points.

Right. A more accurate statement, and one which my guide warned me about when we were doing a couple of smallish add ons direct at VGC a little over a year ago.

He actually had us give him a range of points we would take. If the number available fell within our range, he said, we'd get them.

So we told him 125-150 the first time, and we got 125. The second time we told him 50-75 and we got 75.

I think others have posted their guides wouldn't let them do this anymore.

Smile Beach Club Wait List

I too have been on the wait list for Beach Club (25 points - October Use Year) since March 1st. What I don't understand is my guide keeps telling me there is no way to tell how many people are ahead of me on the list. He does say that there are lot of people on the list after me. Is there some site we can go on to independently determine exactly where we are on the wait list?

I am on the waitlist for 50pt BCV . I went on the wait list just a few days after you so you are before me. Like I said before my guide said there are about 7 or so ahead of me I can only assume you are one of them.

Doesn't UY factor in? If a UY comes up faster, the points are allocated?

Lots of BCV resale contract came up for sale today. Wonder if that is what your guide was talking about. They have been scarce in the last month or so & now lots pop up.

I have been looking at all the resale listings through all the brokers (or at least what they show online) and your right it has been scarce . I haven't looked today but after you saying that I will go and look it up. It's a possibility, maybe they plan on scooping some up.

Disney knows how to sell!
Yes they do, including the same thing over and over again... I get that they buy many of these points back through
rofr, but they shine them up and sell them as brand new at double their purchase price and the kicker is, they are points they had sold in the first place.
It is a great business model.

We are on the waitlist for 125 points but told them we would take it in 25 and 50 point contracts.

I will let you know when we hear something.

Called my guide again today - states that while the number of people on the list ahead of me has shrunk considerably in size (and likewise behind me has grown in size), still not able to tell me how many people are actually ahead - states it could be a couple of more weeks, or months. Would just be guessing otherwise. Very hard to sit back and just wait.
