Cross fingers please...

Hubby just put in an offer on 50 resale points at Boardwalk Villas. That alone would be enough to get us into a Boardwalk studio during the times of year we usually travel roughly two years out of every three. And of course someday we can add more points.

We are seriously hard-core Disney fans now, I guess.

Disney has passed on right of first refusal. We are now officially DVC members and owners at the Boardwalk Villas!

yay

OMG I am already imagining our next Food and Wine Festival trip (meaning the one after this November's trip). I'll just eat at the festival booths. Don't need to go anywhere else.

Congratulations and Welcome Home! We will have to teach you our secret handshake.

BTW, not to spoil your festivities, but I hope you are aware of the restrictions put on DVC points bought via resale such as they can't be used for cruises, RCI exchange, etc.

Not to worry, you aren't spoiling anything. We already know about the restrictions. Fortunately we are already RCI members through the non-Disney timeshares we own, and have been using RCI to get into DVC properties for a couple of years now. These Boardwalk points are just for staying at the Boardwalk, or perhaps another DVC property.

Thanks, everyone! We're so pleased it all worked out.

And "addonitis:" oh, yes, I can feel it coming on already. Someday we'll want to bring friends to the Food and Wine Festival, and we'll need a two-bedroom unit. It's just a matter of time.
