No, it wasn't a conspiracy theory. The guess was since March is such a weird UY (at least for VGC) with few contracts, the best Disney could do was getting a striped contract. So, sometime during the year long waiting period of those two posters, DVC acquired contracts w/o 2012 points, and then had to wait until the 2013 UY started to be able to sell them.

It was just too coincidental that two people, both waiting over a year on the wait list, both for March UY, both got their points the first of March.

I also added on direct at VGC, twice in fact, with a June UY. MUCH more popular UY, # of contract-wise, than March, and got my points after only a few months wait.

It's just that March doesn't seem to have that many and DVC might have been constrained in how they could handle that wait list. Does anyone really think DVC would purposely delay when they would take our money???

I love my guide. I started "thinking" about DVC when I was living in Michigan ... around 2007. Then I moved to FL, met my husband... It wasn't until 2011, on our honeymoon when we decided to buy and he remembered me!! He's been awesome. We've done a couple of add-ons, most recently at VGF. He called me last week while staying at the Beach Club to see how our stay was going.

Tomorrow makes 4 months waiting for small points for BCV without having received a single call coming from my Guide. At least we still have the 4th of July holiday to celebrate!

I'm also on the VGC waiting list. I have a June use year but said I would take any use year. How long have you been on the WL? You are still waiting for more points, right?

We have been on the WL since Mar 11th. Actually, since I don't need the points till Nov ( which is when we plan to book our vacation for next year) I am in no rush. I just hope to get them before then

I am on the waitlist for Boardwalk. I was told that I was 12-15 on the wait list. How does the wait list work?

We've been waiting since mid March for BCV Feb. use year. We spoke to our guide this week, and he said that it is still taking a long time for small BCV contracts to come through.

In Guide speak that means that they are selling to people who want larger contracts first. DVD doesn't wait for a small contract to come to Disney and then they resell it like the resale market does. They collect all of the Feb UY contracts, strip the points and make new contracts in the amount that the customer wants. My guess is that they want to make larger contracts first, less work for more money.

I've been waiting since mid march for 100 BCV points Aug UY and nothing here. What do they consider "small" vs "large"?

What bothers me is that my Guide made it sound like I would be able to buy my points within a few weeks. I too am beginning to think that since I told him I wasn't interested in AKV or VGF, he isn't interested in me nor my money. I haven't heard from him since June 17th and I had to call him then. He was still saying I would be able to buy in within a couple weeks. I think I may just head over to the resale market and buy there. I can get a lot more points for the price and while I know that I may get ROFR'ed on, at least I wouldn't feel like I'm being ignored!!

It's a well know fact that DVD only wants to sell new resorts that are on their active list. The possibility exists that Disney expects all of their money from sales within a certain period. The DVD executives only want new resort sales and the Guides may get a slap on the hand for selling older resorts or they might not get paid the same for the sale.

The other delay is that the Guides don't know what older resort contracts will become available and what UY's will be available. They don't want to tell you that they aren't allowed to know what is going on in their own company and that they can only close your sale when someone else in their company tells them to.

That is very likely what goes on. I guess if I look at it like a car then it makes more sense. I know a car salesman, and the dealership, makes more money on a new car sale over a used car sale.

Two years ago we almost bought in direct at VWL, and they had the points right then and there. I should have bought then, but it just wasn't the right time as my daughter was getting married. The points were at $100 per point too .

I have never once heard from our guide. I chalk it up to the fact that I live in Canada.
