Disney Vacation Club Moves from RCI to Interval International

Interval International Disney Vacation Club

Disney Vacation Club has announced it will be changing exchange providers to Interval International from RCI at the end of 2021. If you purchased Disney points ready to visit the parks each year, this may not have an impact on your vacation planning. It is good to know that your DVC timeshare can be used elsewhere if you care to though.

In a letter to Members Bill Diercksen, Senior Vice President & General Manager of Disney Vacation Club and Aulani, wrote: 

‘Dear Member,

At Disney Vacation Club, we know how much you enjoy exploring destinations and experiences beyond your Home Resorts. Our team is dedicated to helping you create unforgettable vacation memories around the world. That’s why we’re thrilled to name Interval International as our exclusive new exchange provider for traditional exchanges, effective Jan. 1, 2022.

This new relationship will offer you a broad range of resort experiences, providing flexible and diverse opportunities in amazing locations across Europe, Asia, South America, Australia, as well as destinations closer to home including the United States, Mexico and the Caribbean.

Through Interval International, you will have access to thousands of resorts including a specially curated portfolio of high-quality properties selected especially for Members. This expanded portfolio includes well-known resorts offered by Marriott, Sheraton, Hyatt and Westin, to name a few.

In the meantime, you can continue to book nightly and weekly exchanges in the traditional exchanges through our current program until Dec. 31, 2021. Additionally, any confirmed reservations or points that have been deposited to RCI will be honored through 2023. If you have confirmed exchanges with RCI, deposited points with RCI or made a booking with RCI using cash, you can always review your activity on the Member website.

We’re excited to continue to provide you and your family with a whole new world of vacation possibilities!’

Based on the information shared about confirmed reservations, this won’t change any plans that have already been made through 2023. So what will this mean when it comes to booking stays outside of the Disney Vacation Club Resorts? Will Interval International have better availability than RCI? Interval International is another top exchange provider and celebrates its 45th anniversary this year. Some think the change could lead to more favorable booking outcomes. Interval International hosts an exciting lineup of places to stay and play. The resort directory shows desirable vacation destinations all around the U.S. and even more internationally.

If you usually plan to use all your DVC points at Walt Disney World, Disneyland, Aulani or other Disney Destinations each year this still may be of interest to you. If there is an off time where all of your points aren’t used, perhaps some might be approaching expiration by oversight, the exchange provider might be an option to spend elsewhere.
