What Are the Annual Dues for Each DVC Resort and How Much Do They Increase Over Time?

For the answers to those questions, please see the chart below.  In the first column, you’ll find Disney Vacation Club’s (DVC) 2020 annual dues for each of the 15 DVC Resorts. In the second column you’ll see the percentage change between 2019 and 2020.  Lastly, in the third column, you’ll see the percentage change in each resort’s annual dues since that resort opened.

Why Does DVC Have Annual Dues?

DVC’s annual dues are necessary to pay the costs of property maintenance, costs to renovate the villas over the years, and the 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.  To give you an example, 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 $6.77 = $677.  For your Copper Creek contract, calculate 100 points x $7.45 = $745.  The total annual dues bill for your 200 point membership would be $1,422.

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.

Member Tip

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.
