Get More Options And Flexibility With A Resale DVC Membership

Imagine purchasing a DVC Membership, returning home, and learning that you could not maintain it because, perhaps, your child was admitted to Harvard, and you were about to receive a large surprise tuition payment.

However, you just can’t resist Walt Disney World, especially if you’ve ever requested the back row on the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, have had more churros than you can count, or have several sets of mouse ears.

Although many magic enthusiasts are intrigued by the Disney timeshare, Disney Vacation Club, they either believe it is out of their price range or don’t know much about it. When they learn about resale DVC points, it intrigues them and becomes more feasible. 

Resale contracts for Disney Vacation Club are much less expensive than purchasing them directly from Disney. 

We at DVC Resale Experts would be delighted to help you purchase resale DVC points and provide insightful advice.

What Does It Mean To Buy DVC Resale Boardwalk?

When you buy a DVC contract through the owner rather than DVC directly, you are engaging in a DVC resale.

Resales provide a way to join DVC without leaving your house, sometimes at a great discount. 

To determine which path is appropriate for you, we listed some frequently asked questions, along with their respective responses:

What costs are involved in purchasing DVC resale?

When purchasing resale, three costs should be considered: the purchase price, closing costs, and annual dues

Your annual point allotment multiplied by the cost per point is included in the pricing. 

For instance, 100 points multiplied by $60 a point = $6,000. The closing agency determines the expenses, which typically cover everything necessary to transfer ownership of the property from the seller to the buyer, including the recording of the new deed and the title insurance policy. 

Your title agent will inform you of the information about any Walt Disney World property, and they often have average closing costs around $500. The party receiving the current year’s points typically pays the annual dues for a resale purchase. 

But since each resort has its own fees, they vary accordingly.

How long does the process take?

The entire process takes around 6-10 weeks currently, depending on how quickly Disney waives the right of first refusal. Disney then adds new members within 3-5 weeks after the sale is finalized.

DVC Resale Vs Direct 

You’ve now decided that you might want to purchase a membership, or at the very least, you’re unsure if it’s the appropriate choice for your family. Your next crucial decision is whether to go direct or resale

The pricing (resale is significantly less expensive) and membership perks are the key distinctions between direct and resale purchases. 

If you purchase from Disney directly, you are eligible for all the perks; however, if you purchase from a reseller, you are not. Only a few things are an exception (which will be discussed in the latter part of this article). 

You receive member perks when you purchase directly from Disney. These vacation points can be used at any DVC resort, on Disney Cruise Line and Adventures by Disney excursions, and on the RCI exchange for travel to other locations.  Most members understand that using DVC points for Disney Cruise Line and Adventures by Disney is a horrible value, so most DVC Members don’t consider that to be a perk. You’re much better off renting out some points and using the cash to book DCL or ABD trips.

Of course, buying DVC resale is undoubtedly the best option when we’re talking about money savings. But if you’re eager to access all the benefits a DVC membership can provide, you should buy directly from Disney.

Benefits Available To Owners 

You are a DVC member whether you buy resale or direct! The same banking, borrowing, and booking windows are available to all members. Every member is a deeded owner, and you receive the same member services no matter who you are.

Your contract guarantees your annual Vacation Points, just like it does for direct buyers. 

Yes, you read that right! The ONLY guarantee offered by DVC is that you will receive your points annually, whether you purchase them straight from Disney or on the resale market. 

The additional member benefits offered to members who made a direct purchase from Disney may be altered, eliminated, or added. Let’s take a look at some of them:

DVD Rentals

Members get free DVD rentals of all their favorite Disney films once they’re back in their villa. Even though it might appear a little dated, this is a wonderful perk to have for those cozy nights in with the family.

Complimentary Laundry

Who likes to do laundry while on vacation? Taking advantage of extended stays and not needing to bring a lot of clothing, however, is a benefit of being a Vacation Club member. 

While guests staying in 1, 2, or 3 bedrooms have access to in-room laundry, those in Disney boardwalk villas deluxe studios can use the free laundry facilities offered at each resort. 

Fresh, clean clothing is the best to put on after a fantastic Disney vacation when you get home!

Complimentary Resort Parking

We’re always thrilled about saving money; this is a fantastic DVC member advantage. 

Parking at a Disney Vacation Club resort is free to guests. Additionally, this advantage includes theme parks! 

Therefore, if you drive to a theme park while staying at a Disney Vacation Club resort, you won’t have to pay for parking there either. It’s great to know that this is one less expense you have to worry about because the savings may increase.

Fireworks Viewing LoungeDVC BoardWalk Fireworks

You can easily access the Top of the World Lounge. Access to this stunning Members Only Lounge is available to owners with at least 150 points acquired straight from DVC. Watch the spectacular fireworks displays that Disney is famous for as well.

Pool Hopping

Leaping Horse Libations at DVC Boardwalk Villas Pool

How much does it cost to Buy DVC Resale Boardwalk?

Is buying DVC resale safe?

Buying DVC resale is safe if you buy from a trustworthy broker like DVC Resale Experts. 

If Disney approves the purchase, some documentation is returned, money is exchanged via an escrow account with a title company, and the new owner takes over. The seller and the buyer must complete contracts, and the offer must then be submitted to Disney for the Right of First Refusal.
