What is Disney Vacation Club? Timeshares, Amenities and More


What is Disney Vacation Club?

Beginning in 1991 with the development of the resort now known as Disney’s Old Key West Resort, the Disney Vacation Club opened a wonderful world of vacations for Disney fans looking for a comfortable and affordable way to visit Disney World each year.

Now including a total of 15 Club resorts primarily in Orlando but with resorts also in Anaheim, Hilton Head, Ko Olina Hawaii and Vero Beach, club members can choose a Disneyland, Disney World, or relaxing beach vacation every year.


With legions of fans around the world dedicated to all things Disney, a Disney Vacation Club membership means parents who grew up on Disney have a terrific way to pass their love for the magic down to their children.

Whether it is vacationing directly on Disney property and taking the iconic monorail to the Magic Kingdom or having meals with their favorite Disney characters, the magic is unique and members get to experience it firsthand.

Disney Timeshare Information

Owners purchase a Disney Vacation Club membership based on their favorite DVC resort, which is considered their home resort. Points are allocated annually to the member. With the number of points needed for the specific resort.

Those points determine the type of unit members can vacation in and the frequency of vacations. The more points owned, the more options for vacations.

Resorts offer a variety of accommodations, from studio to three-bedroom layouts. Owners can also use Disney points to stay at other DVC resorts.



Why do people choose DVC vs. other timeshares?

Vacationers choose DVC over other timeshares to be a part of Disney and have affordable accommodation options for their vacations.

Members have priority booking status at their home resort and, because they have already paid for their accommodation. They don’t have to refresh websites every day hoping for the best deal.

Is Disney Vacation Club Worth It?

Search the Disney website and see the high rental rates to see if club membership is worth it. A stay in a studio unit in a resort-like Disney Old Key West in Orlando during the low-demand season can still cost nearly $550 a night. That’s over $3,800 for the week.

The same stay for a Disney Vacation Club member would only use 79 points and could cost about $1,600 in prorated resale membership cost and annual dues for that amount of points, assuming the membership is kept for 10 years.


Can I sell my DVC points back to Disney?

Disney does not have an internal resale department and they do not typically buy back DVC points directly from their members. They refer their owners to third-party resale brokers who work on a no upfront fee basis in order to sell DVC points.

Disney has the highest resale value of any vacation ownership program in the world, so owners can sell with confidence knowing they will get a really good price for their membership.
