That's funny.

I'm also Canadian and don't typically hear from my guide, but I've received correspondence from him twice since I added on (direct) at BLT earlier this year (just before the waitlists went crazy).

First was a direct mail shipment of Share the Magic business cards personalized with my name and that of my guide, second was a generic email from him about adding on at VGF.

It must be because you are in ON. I think AB and ON are the only two provinces DVC is allowed to call / market to.

You're probably right about that, just funny since I never heard from him after my initial buy-in in 2010.

My guide, Byron, retired very recently. The third week in May I received a call from a person named Greg ? , telling me that he was my new guide. We talked for quite a while.

Since then, I have received two different calls from DVC-- again telling me that Byron retired and they would be giving me a new guide. Each time I have informed them of the first call from Greg and that I would like to stay with him.

Apparently, there is a lack of communication as neither expressed any knowledge of Greg or that I had already been appointed a guide.

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


I have been on the disney list since 3/4/13 for 25 points at BCV with Oct. UY - no calls from my guide and I live in the U.S. As I understand it, Disney would hold the $115.00/pt price for 6 months - have 1 month left at the old price - don't expect any calls as there have not been a lot of Sellers for BCV.

I just purchased 50 add on points direct, took less than one week to finalize everything. Points were in my account one day after confirming that I wanted to buy

I also live in Canada my guide called me on a vacation to ask me how I
liked my resort and at anytime give her a call if I had any questions or
problems. Guess it depends who your guide is .

With Disney, you have access to points within hours at times. I added on at BLT once and had access to make a reservation 3 hours later!!!

Yup. I bought direct resale and my points were in my account an hour after my guide told me I got them.

My guess is that they want to make larger contracts first, less work for more money.

We experienced this several years ago when we did a small add on at BCV.
I called our guide, who is great, and he said he would check on inventory. He called back and shared we were #2 on the wait list. He then shared that Disney had the points we needed in inventory but could not sell them to us because someone was ahead of us and they were looking for a large # of points, and since they were first, Disney could not move on until they dealt with them. Fair enough, first come first served. That is exactly the right thing to do. We ended up getting our points in about 6 weeks, so it all worked out no biggie. Those larger point contracts may be less work and more money but many times create more problems. So the way I understood it was, for example, if someone is looking to buy 300 direct points at BCV and Disney has only 200 points in their inventory for that UY those points must be held for that contract until fulfilled. So if 4 other people were looking for 50 point direct points from Disney during that same UY then they all must wait until the 300 point contract is filled first. Instead of completing 4 sales everyone must wait. What happens then? Possibly 4 eager members call their guide to check on the status of their points. Maybe some back out go resale who knows.

There is no way to know for sure but if Disney really wanted to fill wait lists, they would exercise their ROFR more often. They obviously have certain criteria for sales and only Disney knows what that is. Often the Guides aren't even told the whole story, not knowing keeps them protected from legal issues.
