Disney Vacation Club

Disney Vacation Club Logo New 

The Disney Vacation Club (DVC) is a very unique concept in vacation ownership that allows for unprecedented flexibility. Disney is making vacation ownership a dream come true for many families by providing years of fun-filled quality vacation experiences. Just as Walt Disney imagineered the amusement park concept into a theme park, Disney Vacation Club improved on the foundation of earlier timeshare programs. Disney Vacation Club offers unique flexibility in choosing among a vast array of vacation experiences:

  • Your length of stay is up to you: stay for night, weekend, a week, or longer. 
  • You can choose when to go: plan for a romantic winter getaway or a summer adventure with the kids. 
  • Choose from a variety of luxurious accommodations, from deluxe Studios, to 1 and 2 Bedroom Vacation Homes, all the way up to 3 Bedroom Grand Villas.
  • Never stuck with the same vacation experience; there is always something new such as other resorts, member getaways, adventure travel and cruises

The Vacation Point System  
When people become DVC Members, they purchase a real estate interest in the club. This real estate interest entitles members to an annual allotment of vacation points. The larger the real estate interest purchased, the more points that are received each year. The current price is $140-165 per vacation point with the minimum purchase being 100 vacation points.

Home Resort 
Your "home resort" is the resort in which you have your real estate interest.  There are currently thirteen DVC resorts : Animal Kingdom Lodge Villas, Bay Lake Tower, Beach Club Villas, Boardwalk Villas, The Villas at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, Old Key West, Polynesian Villas & Bungalows, Saratoga Springs, and the Villas at Wilderness Lodge are all located at Walt Disney World Resort.  Disney's Vero Beach Resort is located on Florida's East Coast and Disney's Hilton Head Island Resort is located in Hilton Head, South Carolina. Disney's Grand Californian Villas is located at the Disneyland Resort in California, while Aulani is located in Ko'Olina on the island of Oahu, Hawaii. 

The main advantage to owning a real estate interest in one resort over another is that you are allowed, as a member, to make reservations at your home resort up to eleven months in advance of your stay. For resorts other than your home resort, you are permitted to make reservations only seven months in advance. 

Another very important fact relating to the home resort is that any timeshare swaps performed are made to and from your home resort. These "Member Getaways Resort Exchanges" are actually exchanges of accommodations at a DVC Resort for an accommodations at a Member Getaways destination, based on availability.
