So if my deed was recorded on 10/8, should I be worried that I have not received an email about setting up my DVC account? And if I should be worried and should do something about it, what exactly would I do?
It has been taking 4 to 6 weeks on average. Some had it show up sooner.

If you don’t get it by 4 weeks, you can email Membership Administration to get an update. They are not taking calls.

This is our first contract, and I'm really surprised at how quickly things have gone, all things considered. I'm hoping we'll have the membership info by our trip in 3 weeks, but not holding my breath. We don't have points until February, so we're in no real rush.

    So seeing recorded dates of 10/6 and 10/7 showing up in accounts on dates 10/18 and 10/19 respectively drove me slightly crazy. I have a 10/8 recorded date. Really thought I was going to see my 10/8 show up this week in my account, but it has been a no show.

    So this is my obligatory post to complain, so it will magically show up Monday!
    I see that it worked for you, but I will not tempt the fate of the ROFR whisperers! :earboy2:
    Even though I'm at day 41, :snail:and would like to know, :surfweb: I will not "complain"!!!!
    But it would be really really nice if I heard soon, and it was Good News !
    (pretty good pleading, eh)?
    So, PaulW08 - it kinda/sorta worked for me too, with a 1-day Lag!
    I posted my whining/pleading on Tuesday, and I just got the call this morning that Disney waived ROFR on my 1st little BCV add-on
    So here's the update ! (43 DAYS in ROFR)

    My first time but I’m going to guess ROFR is the hardest wait. It’s all hope and possible rejection. Like passing Disney a note in class and waiting to see if they will be your boyfriend.

    ROFR is the more stressful wait, but I personally find the wait from closing to points to be the most painful, because you OWN DVC at that point but have no access to use your ownership!

    Wow - after that 76 day wait, it's a good thing that it's now picking up for you
    You were definitely hit with the "hurry-up-and-wait" routine, or in your case it was "wait-then-hurry-up" ! :earboy2:

    I would liken it more to having made a delicious sandwich for lunch, and between the kitchen counter and the dining table is your abusive roommate who may kick you in the crotch and take your food.

    You made a GREAT sandwich last time, but it was too tempting, so WHAM! Crotch kicked. So this time you made it a little less appetizing in hopes he’s either full from the last time he ate your lunch, spent, or napping.

    If anything, the note you’re passing says “Please stop takin’ my samich... and kickin’ my crotch. Or I’ll move out...”

    Except you never will, because this is what codependency looks like.
