Apparently, the person handling our paperwork is out sick until next week and they have our closing already scheduled for mid March! I was hoping we would close within 3-4 weeks.

To say I’m disappointed is an understatement — especially after looking at other time frames from others on this thread. I emailed back to share that frustration and request a different closing agent — am I being unreasonable? Thanks for any feedback, I’m new to this!
Good luck!

After buying 2 resale contracts in 2021, we bought a small add on contract at our home resort (HHI) direct while at WDW in Dec.
The paper work came in the mail as literally paper. We had to sign and send back to lawyer (SC laws).
Points are in our account, but closing is not until later this month for some reason.
Thought it was interesting to see the experience as our first two contracts were resale and our direct add on was the only "paper" copy of everything!

It will most likely close long before March. My contract lists a close by date of 1/27 and I closed on 12/31 and points are already in my account as of yesterday. So closed almost a month early (and might have closed sooner if I had moved my money around my accounts a little sooner than I did - thought I had another week or so before I would get closing papers).

That’s great to hear! I think things just moved sooo quickly (much faster than I expected) so hearing March felt so far out! I spoke with the title company and they were so kind — sounds like it will close much earlier than that too! To be honest, I’m looking at other potential contracts (as my husband laughs!) and hearing from Disney so quick on ROFR got me very excited to close the loop on this first one! 😂🤣

They always list the closing date well out to allow for paperwork to return and funding to complete. It can and will close much sooner than that.

41 days from offer to closing, then 28 days from closing to points available (this was inflated by the holidays, plus my original deed had to be corrected, which cost a few days last week)

Thank you! Newbie mistake on my part, I think 😂 I was taking everything too literally! Thankfully they were very kind and explained how it works to me.

Fingers crossed things keeping moving soon!

Same agent here. She’ll be back the 26th, but they’ll still run paperwork that comes in.

I’m a little jealous you already have your closing docs! I’ve never had such a long delay since passing ROFR and getting closing docs.

super anxious to get the Disney email to book our first trip on points :yay:

No better time than to get that e-mail while we were in Disney this weekend. Now to book our first trip without our daughter so we can truly enjoy EPCOT

Anyone had luck getting points loaded quickly with a call or anything? My new contract is showing now but no points. It has points expiring at the end of March so times a wasting. And of course there's a room available at my home resort right now four weeks out 😭
