DVC Resorts with the Worst Firework Views

It’s time to gather the Disney ROFR DVC stats for last month and go over the numbers together. The statistics discussed below are based on DVC Resale Experts’ own sales and data. So welcome, or welcome back, and let’s see how things turned out in October of 2022.

Disney ROFR DVC Meaning

To get things started, a reminder of what ROFR stands for and means. The letters ROFR stand for Right of First Refusal. Disney Vacation Club contracts say Disney has the Right of First Refusal, or the first chance, to buy a contract back when a Member chooses to sell DVC points. ROFR buybacks happen during the closing process when a Member is selling a DVC contract. When the seller accepts an offer from a buyer, Disney is able to buy the contract back at the agreed upon rate instead of letting the sale go through.

When Are Disney ROFR DVC Stats Important?

The Right of First Refusal is not as important for someone who is selling DVC points. Sellers make the same amount from a sale if Disney chooses to buy it back because they must pay the rate the seller agreed to sell it for. The Right of First Refusal is a very important part of the process for those who are buying DVC points. If Disney chooses to buy back the contract during the Right of First Refusal process, the sale does not move forward for the buyer. When this happens, DVC Resale Experts is happy to help the buyer find the next right contract that will make their vacation dreams come true. For sellers, Disney choosing to buy a contract back doesn’t make too much of a difference since the price is the same.

The resorts Disney Vacation Club is most interested in buying back change at random. Knowing if the home resort you want to buy at has recently been favored by Disney for buybacks is helpful as well. Without further ado, here are the Disney ROFR DVC stats for October 2022 and the highest prices Disney paid for those contracts.


In October of 2022, Disney chose to use ROFR to buy back about 23% of DVC Resale Expert sales. Out of the 39 ROFR responses received, 30 contracts passed and 9 were bought back by DVC.

Understanding DVC Numbers And Statistics

Note that ROFR numbers for the month don’t always align perfectly with the numbers in our other monthly series on the DVC average resale price. The closing process usually takes more than thirty days from start to finish. Because of this, details of a contract may be accounted for in different months in these recurring blog post series.


When we’re talking about these per point prices, remember the amount of points on the contract has an affect on that number. Contracts with higher point values typically sell for a little less per point while contracts with less points sell for a bit more per point. This can definitely have an influence on how these buyback highs appear to be doing. Talk with your expert regarding your specific resort and pricing.

In trying to prepare a buyer to be aware of their risk of ROFR, it’s important to share popular ROFR DVC buyback resorts. While we don’t know exactly why, Disney Vacation Club seems to favor different resorts at different times. Buybacks picked up a bit more in October of 2022. The most noticeable change is at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas. At a high of $150 per point. this is a jump. We haven’t seen this resort have a buyback anywhere near this rate in our records. The takeaway is that Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas have had buybacks every month consistently for quite a while. Bay Lake Tower and Copper Creek have also been consistent buybacks as of late.
