Disney Vacation Club Planning Guide 2018

Since it was founded in 1991, Disney Vacation Club (DVC) has become one of the highest-rated vacation-ownership programs in the industry – and a prime example of how Walt Disney Parks and Resorts is growing its family vacation business by addressing a broad range of vacation experiences.

DVC was created as a unique experience for guests who like to return to Walt Disney World Resort on an annual basis and stay for longer periods of time. It has quickly grown to include a wide range of vacation offerings, currently boasting 10 properties both inside and outside Walt Disney World Resort in Florida.

Members access their vacation club ownership through a highly flexible vacation point system that allows them to tailor vacations to their personal needs. Members receive an annual allotment of vacation points that can be used in a variety of ways for different types of accommodations.

In 2009, DVC reached a company milestone, with more than 420,000 individual members from approximately 100 countries and every U.S. state having made a long-term commitment to unforgettable vacations.

6 to 11 years, leaving you with years to enjoy the magic for less. I bet you're
wondering, how much does all this cost? Well, the cost of membership depends on
how many vacation points you purchase in a Disney Vacation Club Resort. You can
decide the amount of points that's right for you, based on how you and your family
like to vacation. Your total cost of membership will include a one-time
purchase price and closing costs. Plus annual dues which help cover your
resorts operating costs. So let's say you choose to become a member at Copper Creek villas and cabins at Disney's Wilderness Lodge, and purchase a 100
vacation points package. Here's what your cost of membership would be. Now let's make a comparison. One possible use of those vacation points
might be six nights in a deluxe studio at Copper Creek during these dates. If you
were to rent those accommodations here's what the cost would be. Now if you plan
to stay in similar priced accommodations for this many years, the total combined
cost of the initial purchase price from membership, all closing costs, and the
annual dues for each of those years it's still less than what you would pay to
rent the room. So as you can see in this example, membership would have paid for
itself in the amount of years referenced here. And you'd still have years of
magical Disney vacations left to enjoy. Disney Vacation Club even offers
flexible finance options for qualified purchasers. So you won't need to worry about paying upfront for the full amount of membership. Instead, you can pay it off over time if this works best for you and enjoy a lifetime of Disney vacations. So get ready to stay magical year after year. While you save on Disney Vacation
