Like most 21st century vacation clubs, the Disney Vacation Club utilizes a points-based system to better determine the extent of their members’ ownership. The cost of reservations for DVC timeshare owners can differ by resort, unit type, and sometimes even view type, leading to a complex system of point values that can be hard for some vacationers to understand. For that reason, Disney started creating DVC point charts to help their club members understand what they can get with their yearly point allotment.
Each resort has a DVC point chart that is organized into different seasons—Adventure Season, Choice Season, Dream Season, Magic Season, and Premier Season. While some DVC resorts outside of Orlando may not incorporate all of these season types, they organize their charts in a similar fashion, with Adventure Season being the lowest value and Premier Season being the highest.
While DVC releases new point charts every year, it’s important to note that not much changes in terms of point values for reservations. It is not uncommon to find that one resort’s chart from the previous year is almost identical to its new chart. The most important thing to take note of is the dates that fall within each season, as these can change quite drastically year to year.
For Disney timeshare owners, it’s important to track DVC points through these useful charts to know exactly what you can get for your vacation during the upcoming year. Knowing the type of accommodations you can book can also help you to easily rent your Disney timeshare or sell it on the resale market altogether. DVC points also help determine trading power with exchange companies like RCI and Interval International.
DVC point charts are also useful to those looking to buy a DVC timeshare on the resale market. Knowing how DVC points work and how many you’ll need to reserve accommodations for your Disney vacation can help in the search for your ideal timeshare. Since DVC owners that sell on the secondary market are essentially selling their club memberships, being familiar with point values can help you to identify a great deal.
So, without further ado, here are the 2017 DVC point charts for each Disney resort!
