What is a Disney Timeshare?

How Disney Timeshare Works

Disney Vacation Club works by offering points-based ownership, meaning owners receive an annual allotment of points that they can spend like vacation currency. When you purchase a DVC timeshare, your contract indicates how many points you receive every year.

What is a DVC Use Year?

Every owner is assigned a “Use Year” when purchasing their DVC points. Despite what you may think, DVC Use Year refers to a month, not a year. Your Use Year (UY) is the month in which you receive your annual allotment of points.

Disney timeshare owners can make reservations up to 11 months before check-in at their Home resort. That’s why taking the time to choose your Home resort is so important! Often, Disney properties sell out fairly quickly, especially during the holiday seasons or spring.
