    Congrats! 12 days from recording is great. How many times did you call MS?
    I started calling day 7 and called every day in the morning and afternoon, except over the weekend. I called first thing this morning and was told that I wasn't in the system, called back on my lunch break and viola! after 40 minutes on the phone I had my vacation booked.

    You know, I only say start at 10 days because some people have been lucky and reported getting their information that early, but 12-14 days is much more common. Did you have some expiring points that encouraged you to be that aggressive? Calling at 7 days just seems a little unreasonable.

    I did for a couple of reasons... First and foremost, the 7 month window is fast approaching and I wanted to get my reservation done ASAP since I've already paid over $200 for the W & D 1/2 marathon and my vacation dates are not flexible. My travel dates fall during F & W, Jersey week, 1/2 Marathon and the start of MVMCP. Second, I have a 90 min drive to work so it was no trouble to wait on the phone with my bluetooth. I wanted to get my member # the minute it hit the system lol and I didn't mind spending the time to make the effort in the event that I got lucky.

    My contract was recorded on the OC comptroller site on 3/18 and I just booked my first vacation today! pixiedust:

    When did both the seller/buyers paperwork returned? Also do you know the date your info was sent to the OC comptroller? Looking for a new timeline...this has been a very very long process

    We waited 2 weeks for the sellers to return their paperwork. We closed on the 25th. Deed was recorded the same day. I'm at day 9 tomorrow and will make my first call to get my member number.

    I believe I have the correct site (thanks to another Dis member! :-)) but it is very confusing to figure out how to search on it.
