I also have a new resale contract showing in my account but no points loaded on it. How long did it take for your points to load? Did you have to call?
It ended up taking 5 days. Yes I called twice and was told the paperwork from member admin had not made its way over to member services who do the loading of points. I did receive an email the day the points loaded apologizing for the delay. I hope yours show up quickly!

Our estoppel was received 7 days ago. We still have no update on closing docs. I see that for many others, the turnaround time is normally a couple of days. Magic Vacation Title sent us the Open Escrow Title late (after we had already passed ROFR). Is this why our closing docs are probably taking longer? We didn't make any changes to our address, names, etc.

So my first resale contract recorded on 6/9. It has a different use year from my existing direct contract. Does this mean Disney will create a new membership number? Will they send me an email with a new account or will this resale contract just show up under my current account?

You will get a new membership number but it will show up on your current Disney login for DVC, you will have a little drop down arrow where you can select which membership’s points you want to use when booking.

So Disney will send me an email with instructions on setting up this new membership number or it will just automatically show up in my current Disney DVC login? This wait is killing me!

You will get an email but you won’t have to wait to set it up for the second email with the club ID like some have reported not getting until a couple of days later. It will show up automatically when you login to DVC since you already have an account set up.

You will get the email that is is set up but sometimes if you are checking a lot you might see it before the email arrives.

Because you are already an owner, there won’t be anything special you will need to do, Once it’s there, it usually takes another 3 to 5 days to see points loaded

What is "Open Escrow Title"? We are in ROFR now on our very first contract so I am still learning.

Sorry, that was supposed to say "Open Escrow Letter". This is our first time, too. It was just a letter checking that our names, addresses, and tenancy for the contract that we had to sign and return. It seemed like it was supposed to be sent to us during the ROFR wait because it mentioned still waiting on Disney to pass that part; however, the title company sent it a week after passing ROFR.

Oh yeah we signed that before we went to ROFR and paid our deposit. I sent an email today to ask if we could get docs as soon as we are past ROFR, no one has responded yet. Many people are saying you can sign your closing packet whilst you wait for estoppel, it just not officially filed till that comes in. Our seller is international and I will like our wait times to run concurrent if possible.

I waited patiently and gave in today. After a 6 minute hold and 40 minutes waiting for them to resolve, my points are finally active and available for use!!

Exciting!! When did your membership first show up on your account? Mine showed this morning and called MS but they told me that paper work hasn't arrived yet. I'm hoping they could load points tomorrow.

It was 6 days ago the membership showed up with no points. I am assuming there is a long queue and if you call then you can jump the queue; assuming the paperwork is inhouse.

After I saw my contract showing in my account, I called twice without success. I was told by both CMs to call back in 5 days. I tried chat the next morning and CM was able to load my points after 20 minute wait. The inconsistency in what CMs say and member experience is weird. Good luck everyone!

This 2nd resale contract was much faster than my 1st this year.
Same title company but different broker.
Unsure why it was faster though.
