DVC Timeshare Resale — What Does Not Transfer

Recently, DVC has updated its transfer restriction policy for new DVC resale owners. Before you purchase a Disney timeshare resale, it is important to keep these limitations and restrictions in mind, so you know exactly what you’re getting with a DVC resale ownership. However, it is also important to keep in mind that saving thousands by buying resale far outweighs the discounts lost from wholesale—depending on how important certain perks are to your annual vacation enjoyment. There are also many other ways for resale owners to receive the same discounts as DVC Members through such programs as the Disney Visa credit card and becoming an annual Walt Disney World passholder.

With DVC, there are a couple benefits that do not transfer on the resale market one of them being use of the following collections of the Member Getaways Program (applicable to any points purchased after March 21st of 2011): Adventurer, Concierge, or Disney.

In other words, if you purchased a Disney timeshare resale after March 21, 2011, the only collection in the Member Getaways Program you'll be eligible to use is the World Passport Collection. (The World Passport Collection enables you to exchange with RCI, Club Intrawest, and Club Cordial for vacations around the globe so it's a pretty great benefit to retain).

The second restriction is the transfer of DVC’s Membership Extras benefits package, which took effect April 4th, 2016. This includes discounts on restaurants, shopping, excursions and tours, discounted passes to Disney parks, and member-only events.

Although these resale restrictions may seem like a drawback, this is common among vacation clubs that run on points-based ownerships. Nonetheless, DVC timeshare resales and still some of the most sought-after vacation ownership properties on the market, so buying DVC points through resale is still a great option—saving you thousands on a high-end, exclusive vacation club membership for you and your family to enjoy for years to come.
