Disney Vacation Club, commonly referred to as DVC, is Disney’s timeshare program. Like most timeshares, it allows people to “own” a vacation resort and be able to book vacations there for many years in the future. Only these are on Disney property, and you become a member of Disney Vacation Club.
How does Disney’s Vacation Club work?
The Disney Vacation Club is a unique approach to timeshare. Rather than purchasing a fixed week where you must travel within that week every year, DVC allows you to purchase points. You can then use those points however you want throughout the year.
Yes, you can certainly have more than one person listed as owners on a DVC contract, just like you can on any real estate purchase. You can’t actually split up the points 1/3 to one person etc.
How much does DVC cost per month?
The Disney Vacation Club does provide financing at $365 per month for a 10-year loan with a 10% down payment. When guests use their points to reserve accommodations, the costs can vary depending on the time of the year, the resort chosen, and the size of the unit.
How long does a DVC membership last?
Every existing DVC contract will last until at least 2042. That’s 25 years from now! Others will last more than 20 years past that point. When you buy into DVC, you’re playing the long game. You know that your investment will pay off after five-to-seven years.
