Direct-From-Disney Price v. Resale

In comparison, all of these properties can be purchased on the resale market for much less! While there are some restrictions when buying resale, the drastic savings usually outweigh the cons. Plus, there are many ways to still get some of the member perks as a resale owner without the added price tag. If you’re on the fence about buying points, now is the time to purchase before Disney’s higher prices influence Right of First Refusal rates and resale prices and before the January 19th resale policy changes go into effect: Resale Policy Update – Effective January 19th

    It’s a great day to be an owner at the Grand Floridian! I knew I was going to be patting myself on the back one day 🙂

  • Ray Ambrose says:

    Do resale values generally go up to follow Disney price increases?

    • Kristen Tutas Kristen Tutas says:

      Hi Ray! Typically when Disney raises their prices the ROFR rate goes up some and therefore resale prices go up as well. That’s what our sales history has shown every time there is a price increase.

    Thanks for this helpful info. Some of the rates of return have been very good if you held VGC and PVR and a few others,
