Yup, just wait for that email that will have your activation code. If the deed was recorded on 1/7, I would expect that email around 1/20, maybe sooner if they catch up with holiday backlog.
Then you’ll need to call member administration to get your member number and club i.d. to create your online account. Member admin will ask you for the original contract number you purchased and the names of the sellers of the contract.
Is member administration helpful in giving the membership and club ID over the phone? I received my activation code via email on 1/10 and called member services on 1/13 to ask for my club ID. The rep I spoke with told me that I need to wait for my membership ID # that will be coming in the mail and then to call them back once I receive it. This is my first DVC purchase if that makes a difference. TIA!

I've read on the boards that it depends on who you get at Member Services, whether they will help or not.
I made sure to goto Member Administration with my first contract, and they were more than happy to help.
Just tell them, you're a new DVC member who received your Activation Code via email and was wondering if they can help give you your membership number and club ID and that you are anxious to see how the website works, even though you know it will take more time to have your points loaded.
Tell them that you have the original contract number and the sellers names.
This should work.

    How do you find out if they have received the seller's closing documents? I haven't returned ours yet because I get paid next week, and we have an international seller so I figured they wouldn't be able to send them right away.
    What title company are you using? Usually by this point in the process you should have an email contact at the title company. Email that person at the title company and ask if the seller's have returned their closing package yet. It seems to commonly take sellers a week or two to return the closing package. International likely will take longer. When you email the title company, I'd be sure to tell them what day you expect to send your closing package back, so they know you aren't dragging your feet.

    Thank you! I will try them tomorrow. Keep hoping I get the paperwork in the mail but no luck yet 😊

    Thanks for your help on the process. I got my email yesterday 1/16. Followed your directions and now I can see all the vacations I can't book yet! I suppose another week or two for points to load. I'm hopeful I can book by the end of the month.

    Thank you for this advice! I called MA yesterday and they gave me my member ID and club ID over the phone. I logged in yesterday and my points were already there so I was able to book my family summer trip 😊

    First trip booked: Seconds later!

    All in all almost 7 weeks. I thought Disney was quick with their processes. My biggest hold up ironically was waiting two weeks for closing docs. Special shoutout to @WhenIsOurNextTrip for the advice and explanations in the different threads!

    First DVC contract. It has moved a lot faster than I expected. Although it looks like, based on other posts, that the last couple of steps can take quite a bit of time.
    Super excited though!
