The amount of points at a Disney Vacation Club Resort is fixed. Once a DVC resort sells out, Disney needs to stock their inventory of that resort, partially through buybacks. Disney is usually actively selling a few different Disney Vacation Club Resorts at any given time. At this time, those resorts are Aulani, Disney Vacation Club Villas, Disney’s Riviera Resort and The Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. Additional properties allow for all new contracts based on the point matrix for that home resort. In the case of a DVC resort expansion, more points are added. This is the reason the Grand Floridian is actively selling for a second time.
When another resort debuts, prices for the new property can be higher than other resorts. Not all potential DVC Members want to buy at one of the specific resorts Disney is actively selling or spend over a certain budget. It’s good for Disney Vacation Club to have inventory that suits buyer’s needs. For example, a buyer may be interested in a contract at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort because it’s cost effective and has a great location next to Disney Springs. That could be a reason Disney buys back regularly at Saratoga. It is one of the lowest priced resorts when you compare direct Disney Vacation Club prices.
