No doubt about it, Disney Vacation Club (Disney timeshare) is one of the most popular vacation ownership options available today. From the charming, magical accommodations, to their spaciousness, to the fact that staying in a Disney timeshare positions vacationers right in the middle of all the theme park fun, Disney Vacation Club resorts remain one of the favorite destinations for family vacations, reunions, honeymoons, and couples getaways.

However, just because you want to own timeshare at your favorite Disney Vacation Club resort, doesn’t necessarily mean you can. Currently, the only Disney Vacation Club Resorts with real estate interests available for purchase through Disney Vacation Club are:

  • Aulani, Disney Vacation Club Villas, Ko Olina, Hawaii.
  • Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, Orlando, Florida.
  • Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas Orlando, Florida.

Yet you don’t have to worry if you have your heart set on being a Disney Vacation Club owner whose home resort is one that is no longer available through DVC. You can buy a timeshare ownership at Disney Vacation Club as a timeshare resale, where home resort membership at many other Disney timeshare resorts IS available. Not only do you have the option to make your home resort at one of the properties that is no longer available directly through Disney Vacation Club, but you’ll be buying your Disney timeshare resale at a much lower price than if you were buying directly through DVC.

How are Disney Timeshare Resales Different from Timeshare Bought through Disney Vacation Club?

Disney Vacation Club resales and Disney timeshare purchased through DVC really only differ in two ways. The first difference is that owners of Disney Vacation Club resales are excluded from use of the following collections of the Member Getaways Program: Adventurer, Concierge, or Disney. And even this rule applies only  to vacationers who became owners after March 21, 2011. In other words, owners of Disney Vacation Club timeshare resales, who purchased their timeshare ownership after March 21, 2011, may use the World Passport Collection in the Member Getaways Program, but not the Adventurer, Concierge, or Disney programs.

Oh yes, and the second difference between buying Disney timeshare as a resale and buying Disney timeshare directly from the Disney Vacation Club? Resale buyers spend a lot less money to become owners than those who did not take advantage of Disney timeshare resale pricing.
