Saving Money with Disney Vacation Club Resales
It has long been called, “Disney’s best kept secret” but it seems the cat is out of the bag on Disney Vacation Club. Although it may no longer be the “best kept secret” it is definitely the best way to stretch precious vacation dollars, and guarantee your family an annual Disney vacation.
Based on the timeshare concept but owned in the form of points, Disney Vacation Club allows you to own a real estate interest in a DVC resort, in essence owning a Disney timeshare. Disney timeshares give you an annual allotment of vacation points that you can use however you choose. The point requirements to stay in these Disney resorts vary across the different properties, depending on factors such as room types, size and season.
The benefit of buying Disney timeshares on the resale market is that you buy your future vacations at today’s price, while also leading to savings of up to 50% on current and future stays at Disney timeshare resorts.
Flexibility of Disney Vacation Club Membership
Membership allows you the flexibility of an annual vacation in your choice of great Disney vacation ownership properties, or you can bank and borrow DVC points for future trips. You can enjoy today’s pricing on your future magical vacations and still have the flexibility to change your accommodations to fit the individual needs of each vacation. From studio accommodations to vast 3-bedroom grand villas, you can find the perfect fit for your family.
Since you buy a piece of the magic, you’ll have a one-time purchase price for your real estate contract as well as closing costs and fees, then annual dues for the life of your membership. Dues vary based on your choice of home resort and amount of points owned. You can also add to your contract by buying more points and also pass your points on to your family.
As always, DVC resales are the best available option to buy or rent a Disney timeshare since you’ll have Disney points at the deeply discounted prices only available from an existing owner on the secondary market. Because you’re negotiating with an owner, you’ll bypass the sales commissions and marketing costs associated with buying directly from Disney, which drives up the prices available at the resort.
