Waiting to pass ROFR (i.e., n00b)

Default Finally Approved!

To MouseOwners, in case anyone was thinking DVC

About myself, DH and I are new Florida passholders waiting on our tiny resale to close. Our contract just passed ROFR and we'll finally be dipping our toes in DVC. Not sure how to convey my excitement, but I'm sure all of you understand the sentiment, having gone through this at one point!

To be honest, I've never been much of a Disney fan, and this year was the first time visiting Disney since '00. I hope I don't offend anyone with that statement! Perhaps it was because I was a kiddo back then, I remember being dragged everywhere in Epcot into one (boring) educational ride after another. Re-visiting all the same sights through more matured eyes have made me appreciate WDW and the grandeur of Epcot more.

It took a while, but Disney has definitely worked its magic on me as well. Our first trip this year was nothing short of enchanting, and the thought of owning a share of the happiest place on earth brings a smile to my face. Hopefully the hubby will stay interested, rather than deterred by my over enthusiasm of Disney. Then we'll be able to add on a few more points here and there in the future!

It's great to be here

Thanks for the heads up, I'll edit out the bit. I wouldn't want to get into trouble already!

We passed ROFR last week, hopefully rest of the process goes swimmingly.

Welcome and congratulations on passing ROFR!
The magic happens when the magic happens. Sometimes ya just don't see it coming! I like to think we Disney lovers are the fortunate ones for being able to see it.
Like you, it was after our first trip back as adults that we knew we wanted to be part of DVC and are so glad we did! Everything is different now because you know you will be going back! You can slow down and get to know and enjoy every detail at your own pace.
You have much fun ahead indeed!

Welcome and congratulations on passing ROFR! May I ask which resort your contract is at??

I've kind of always been a Disney fan, but my first trip wasn't until I was 17. Either way, it's nice to know that with DVC you can have a piece of the mouse to go back to for a long time.
