Bay Lake was the last resort that recognize purchasers who bought at the resort pre-sale.

We love AKV too! But we only bought the one contract there. We use our "cheap" resale at AKV most of the time.

Correct.....Discounts only apply to new resorts in active sales.

Were you specifically looking for fixed weeks? 11 month booking window is getting aggressive for certain holidays, etc... but would be nice.

DVC should be willing to give out more complimentary merchandise at some of their Open House, meetings, etc.... I know I used to wear a Disney Vacation Club backpack that I got at a complimentary Open House at the BLT Top of the World along with winning a gift card. Whenever I wore that backpack somebody always wanted to know about the Disney Club! Free advertising in our home towns for DVC sounds like a smart thing. (And they should fill the backpack with brochures for us to hand out, haha)
The only DVC gifts I've gotten lately are those left in my stateroom on a DCL cruise or those we get while attending the DVC meeting while onboard.
