DVC 2021 prices

How much does it cost to buy into the Disney Vacation Club? If you’re looking at buying points with DVC its good to know what the options are and how much per point you’ll be spending if you choose to purchase direct from Disney, the developer. Purchase prices vary by resort, starting at $120 per point up to $295 per point.  As you will see in the chart below, there are also different minimum point requirements based on resort and if you’re an existing member or new member.  It is important to note that these rates and terms below apply only to points purchased direct from Disney Vacation Club, not to points purchased on the resale market.

DIRECT PRICE V. RESALE PRICE

Disney sets the rate for direct sales, whereas prices on the resale market can be negotiated with the seller and are usually substantially lower. You can purchase any of the DVC resorts by resale at a fraction of the cost. Just how much can you save? Take a look at the chart below for a comparison of direct price and average resale price per resort do far for 2021. Savings range from 23% up to 48%!

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?

While there are some restrictions when buying resale, the drastic savings usually outweigh these. Another factor to consider are the minimum point requirements for new members. As seen in the first chart above, Disney requires new owners who purchase direct to make a purchase of at least 100 points (with exceptions at Saratoga, Old Key West, Hilton Head and Vero Beach).  If you are a first time buyer wanting less than 100 points, the best option, and sometimes the only option, is to buy resale.

Twelve of the 15 DVC resorts are “sold out,” meaning all the allocated points for that resort have been sold and you cannot readily purchase points for those resorts direct from Disney. Aulani, Copper Creek and Riviera are the only three resorts that are not completely sold out and are readily available to purchase direct from Disney.  Disney can acquire inventory for sold out resorts through owner foreclosures and Right of First Refusals but they are sold first-come first-serve according to buyers on a waitlist. You may be waiting a while to get exactly what you want.   So if you have your heart set on another resort, you may wish to purchase resale where there are more options steadily available and at a lower upfront cost.
