Here we have a detailed visual that makes the annual dues for each DVC resort very easy to digest. This showcases the DVC annual dues for 2023 in comparison to 2022 and how much each resort went up per point from year to year. The amount per point dues increased in dollars and cents is exact but the estimated change percentage is rounded for simplicity.

|Bay Lake Tower||$7.08||$7.43||$.35||5%|

DVC’s annual dues are necessary to pay the operating costs, such as front desk Cast Member salaries & benefits, property maintenance, theme park transportation, costs to renovate the villas over the years and property taxes. As a DVC member, you own a portion of your home resort and the annual dues are based on the amount of points you purchase.
Given the inflationary nature of our economy, one should expect dues to rise approximately 3-5% per year. Cast Member salaries and benefits make up about 75% of the operational costs covered by the dues, while insurance, property taxes and fuel also make up a large part of the cost, all of which continually rise.
To give you an example of what you’ll pay in annual dues as a DVC Member, let’s say you own 100 points at Saratoga Springs as well as 100 points at Copper Creek. For your Saratoga Springs contract, you would calculate 100 points x $7.86 = $786. For your Copper Creek contract, calculate 100 points x $7.92 = $792. The total annual dues bill for your 200 point membership would be $1,578.
Annual dues can be paid in monthly installments by citizens of the United States. If you’re not a United States citizen, you still have the option to pay monthly if you have a bank account on United States soil.
Below, you can take a look at the annual dues history in its entirety from the start of Disney Vacation Club. Seeing the annual dues every year, for each resort, from debut to today, makes it easier to track the nominal rise in annual dues costs per point over time. After more than thirty years, Disney’s Old Key West Resort has only gone up about $6.30 per point.
Some members like to say “My dues are free!” The Disney Visa rewards credit card is a member hack to offset your annual dues. The Disney Visa allows you to earn rewards dollars on purchases, and you can redeem those rewards dollars at Disney for your DVC annual dues, theme park tickets, merchandise and more.
