Are you interested in learning more about purchasing a Disney Vacation Club Resale? As former Disney Vacation Club sales guides, we have 25 years of experience selling directly for the Walt Disney Company. Over the years we’ve helped thousands of families join the Club- we’d love to help you, too!
Since 1991, the Walt Disney Company has been selling memberships into the Disney Vacation Club. DVC offers a unique approach to timeshare ownership. The flexibility of a Disney membership allows members to travel any time of year in various size of accommodations, all based on a point program. Currently, members have access to 14 Disney Vacation Club Resorts at not only Walt Disney World, but other locations including Hawaii, California, South Carolina and Vero Beach, Florida. Also, DVC members have access to thousands of resorts all over the world through Resort Condominiums International (RCI).
The cost of a DVC Membership can vary based on many factors, such as home resort, size of contract, and current availability of points. Annual dues and resort expiration dates tend to also be factors for buyers who purchase resale contracts. Click here to learn more about Resort Expiration Dates and Annual Dues. The primary reason for the popularity of purchasing a Disney Vacation Club Resale is the price! Often, buyers who purchase a contract on the DVC resale market save as much as 20-50% by purchasing resale rather than directly from Disney.
For the prices to be so much less when buying a Disney Vacation Club resale, buyers sometimes think there must be a big difference in the product and how it works. In reality, the differences are minimal. They’re what’s called ‘incidental benefits’, and the following is an explanation of those benefits:
“You will receive the same great service as any other Disney Vacation Club member! You’ll have access to Member Services and to all the DVC Resorts and all of the World Passport Collection Resorts (RCI). The points you purchase on the Resale Market cannot be used towards purchasing Disney Cruises, stays at Disney Hotels (that are not DVC Resorts), Adventures by Disney and the Concierge Collection. These options are not a popular use of points, and many people who are considering vacationing in this way would likely elect to rent out their points and use the cash to pay for their cruise—they often have money left over! Also, note that Disney denotes these options as incidental benefits of Membership and reserves the right to discontinue them at any time regardless of how the membership is purchased.”
We hope that you’ll browse our list of current Available Inventory. Our listing page is designed to be easy to search and is set up to enable buyers to quickly find what they’re looking for. The first step is to determine which Home Resort you’re interested in purchasing. Your Home Resort allows you to have priority booking 11 months ahead of your desired travel time, rather than the 7-month reservation window at all other DVC Resorts. To learn more about Home Resort Priority, click here.
You may be like many buyers and unsure of how many DVC points you need for your family. If so, simply click here for our Vacation Point Calculator. There you may input a ‘sample’ vacation that your family may take, and the calculator will tabulate the number of points required for each resort in all sizes of accommodations. This is helpful as you are able to tailor this example to your family in order to determine an approximate number of points needed annually.
The least expensive option when purchasing a DVC resale is to pay cash. For many, this is not an option. There are two companies that specialize in timeshare lending, Monera Financial and Vacation Club Loans. Click the links to learn more about each company and what they require to finance your DVC membership. Both companies are wonderful to work with and we encourage you to learn more about each company to find which is best for you.
If you’re ready to start creating magical memories for your family and would like to make an offer on an available listing, simply start by Creating an Account.
