What is a Disney Timeshare and is it Worth Buying?

Disney Vacation Club is perhaps one of the most popular timeshare brands among families, and of course, Disney adults. The Disney timeshare brand revolutionized vacation ownership as we know it today, offering flexible points-based ownership, special perks and discounts, and beautiful resort properties around the country.

What is a Disney Timeshare? Known as Disney Vacation Club, or DVC for short, Disney timeshares allow Disney lovers and families the ability to own a piece of their favorite resort with priority access to make reservations.

There are fifteen Disney timeshare resorts within the United States, eleven on Walt Disney World property in Orlando. When you buy a Disney timeshare, you select one of the resorts as your “Home resort,” which is the property where your ownership deed is.

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.

DVC Contract Expiration Dates Some may see this as a drawback, but all DVC contracts have an expiration. Every owner that owns points at the BoardWalk resort, for example, will have an expiration date of 1/31/2042. Despite what you may think, it’s not because DVC sells right-to-use (RTU) timeshares.
