Thanks! I tried calling yesterday and the CM was super nice, but pretty much said without the Member ID I was out of luck. Hopefully the email pushes things ahead a bit!
I don't get why things are coming separately. Usually the membership # and contract ID come at same time. Usually 2 separate emails. Wonder if this is now a new process. This was way it worked for us and another friend I know.

It seems like a really silly process.
"Here's, your Activation Code! But you can't do anything without your member ID."
Next Day: " Here's a very generic Welcome Home email where we tell you about buying direct even though you bought resale...but also still no Member ID."
Next Day: "Call MS, no solution."
Next Day: " Email a new mysterious account because the original email to MA was sent 8 business days ago and they vowed to make contact in 5."

Why not just wait and send me all of the info I need in one email? How silly to give me a piece of the puzzle but I can literally do nothing with it until I get the rest of the pieces.

I got the same thing today! Kind of confused me because I thought the next email I would get is the member ID, not just a generic welcome home.
It killed me to make my first payment today and not have any pts to show for it 😭 hope everyone gets some “welcome home” emails this weekend!
Same! My first payment is due today also. Which is probably why Disney is in no hurry, they already got their money... they shouldn’t receive anything until this process is complete.

That month waiting for the seller to return the closing docs must have been pure agony...

We got our closing docs for Aulani this week and had multiple issues:
- Wrong last names on the tax form (first letter of our last name was wrong!) and in the middle of another form.
- Email was addressed to the wrong family (not a big deal but annoying and odd)
- Docusign had all kinds of erroneous fields on it on my husband's version. Mine was fine so I signed, then it went to my husband and his was a mess. Had to restart that process.
- In the fine print of the Deed paperwork (Exhibit A) it had 80 points usable starting in September - our contract is for 160 points Oct UY. Glad I read the fine print because that seems like a big deal?!

The docusign papers were quickly fixed. The issue with the Deed were not, and apparently need to be resolved by the underwriters? We had planned to get them notarized on Thursday (Hawaii requires notary) but didn't get fixed paperwork before the weekend. Meanwhile I'm not sure if the seller has been told about the error.

This was First American Title, and I assume is not typical of them. We've used them for other real estate sales and I've never seen so many odd mistakes in one transaction.
Any suggestions besides waiting patiently for them to fix this?

Ours literally came right after one another. Separate emails. Very weird they’re spacing everyone else’s out.
