My sale is moving along well, although it is still too slow for me! I need to book welcome home hotel for my February trip!

Attached is the closing time page for 2021.
The document is editable for anyone that wants to add to it!
The document shows the time period between deed recorded and club id vs. points loaded in 2021.
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Fsm2PXgAWw5rBtpqHhcEXt0rnOIohI-ayFTA_iNg2w8/edit#gid=0

A more efficient way to get your club ID than calling:
email wdw.dvc.dvd.resales@disney.com and supply your name, address, and a description of the contract that had been purchased, including its number.
So I just had an interesting phone call from my title company. My resale closed today, and I emailed the email listed above to try and get my membership id number (yes I know it's quick, but I'm impatient and want to try and get points in the system asap!). I got a generic automated reply that said I would hear back within 10 business days. Ok, no problem...

A few hours later, my title company called me and started asking about why I contacted Disney?! They told me that the email address is a private email and reminded me that they sent an email with the info on the next steps, and that it would be up to 5 weeks before I got that info. I mentioned I got it from the boards (although in hindsight I should have just said I found it online, sorry if that causes problems for anyone!), and they responded by saying that email is not supposed to be public. I guess Disney contacted them thinking the title company gave out that email?

I'm rather bemused by this all, and wonder why Disney would reach out to the title co. rather than just ignore my email? :confused3 Anyways, I guess I shouldn't have jumped the gun and I hope others don't get their wrist slapped like I did! (Also, not blaming the title company for this at all, they were just trying to figure out what was going on...guess I need to be more patient next time!)

Will be interesting to see the last but most important step imo to this being finalized! My husband is anxious to book, book and book some more lol

I was wondering when the sellers would return their docs and there was an email waiting for me at lunch time. :tigger: Since my funds will arrive by EOB, I am hoping that closing will be tomorrow or the day after.

So after I sent everything in I was told/reminded that we can't close until August 16 at the soonest. I say that because this was NOT mentioned in the listing AT ALL and I found it in the contract sent by the broker. Never once was this disclosed in an email either. And honestly I totally missed that when reading the contract (I was more focused on the points). But I have seen information like this mentioned all the time in an actual listing so I thought it was kind of crappy that this one didn't. 😒 It would have been nice to know that and I could have waited sending my money too. 🙄 So now I wait...
Hey I noticed you annotated that you used a notary when signing closing documents. We're actually going through the process right now of waiting on the estoppel for an AUL contract with the same broker and title company as yours.

Were you required to go to a notary? I was under the impression that buyers didn't need to get documents notarized... maybe I was wrong?

Some states require a notary no matter who is signing. FL requires a notary if the buyer is financing. Not sure what HI requires but it could be either of those.

I got notice my stuff was filed Monday and it showed on the county website yesterday!!!!! If your closing was today I would check tomorrow and Friday! It was so fast. I have been following your journey as ours were so close to each other and same title company. I am currently impatiently awaiting the DVC side to give me my member number! I wish there was a board that said: Closed date and DVC member given date!!!!

Updated: Got the closing email yesterday afternoon after reaching out again for an update. Deed not yet recorded, and now just waiting for contract to appear!
On the plus side, the broker said they will be sending me a $25 Disney Giftcard as an apology for the issues with the title company and lawyer actually completing the closing on time.

I'm actually wondering now if they actually closed, since the email said "It's scheduled to close today," not "it is closed and sent to Disney."
It's been a week, and the deed is not showing in the comptroller's website for Beaufort County. My last HHI contract, it showed within 2 days of closing.
I thought my first HHI contract was a bit of a disaster (in that case it was the broker), but this is becoming a huge hassle, too. Admittedly I'm paying almost half ($76/point instead of $140/point), so there's that silver lining, but even so, this is more hassle than I wanted.

YOU JINXED ME!! :worried:

I'm kidding. I knew it would be a long shot, but I was trying to think positive. I may or may not have set a timer to go off every 30 minutes to check the comptroller website. :rolleyes1

Does anyone know the email address that the new member and activation link come from?

I have one of those unmanageable email inboxes and I want to add the address to spam filters if possible.

Yay!!!!! I hate I jinxed you....I am now anxiously awaiting my member number. I feel like once I have that I can wait 48 hours and call and see if they might upload my points. I did call member services this am to just see if they might be able to see anything and the line was busy so they couldn't transfer me to that department. Suggested I call back later. I will try again tomorrow just because I can while I work!!!
