Understanding How it Works: Disney Vacation Club Basics

For those new to DVC, first you should know that the Disney timeshare uses a flexible, point based booking system. You don’t have a designated week of the year to visit. Instead, you decide how many points you want based on what aligns with your anticipated travel needs. This includes details like the times of year you plan to visit and what size villas you want to stay in.

You can discover how many DVC points you need for different stays using DVC point charts.

Here’s how 150 DVC points works in an example scenario:

The Carter family buys a 150 point contract at Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. They can buy more or less than this but choose to buy 150 DVC points because it seems to be a good fit for their vacation style. After looking at the Disney Vacation Club point charts for Bay Lake Tower, the Carters see it takes just under 150 points to stay in a Theme Park View Deluxe Studio in early May. This is their favorite time of year to visit and it required 146 points in both 2024 and 2025. They also like to visit during the first week of December after the Disney decorations go up but before the month gets too busy. This costs just over their chosen point value at 155 points in both 2024 and 2025.

It’s possible for the Carters to book their stay, then bank their leftover points to combine them with points from the following use year. This would give them 154 points instead of just 150. Because DVC is so flexible, they could borrow points from the following use year or purchase one time use points to have the right amount for what they want to book.

There isn’t a perfect amount of DVC points to buy but the options within the system help you make the most of whatever point value you choose. So, 150 points is a common point value that people purchase but the quantity you should buy really depends on what kind of stay you plan to book each year.

What does 150 DVC points get you? How many nights does 150 DVC points get you?

The number of points you buy, also called your point value, determines what you can book using your Membership. In many instances, 150 points can get you a week long stay at a Disney Vacation Club resort each year. It also depends on the time of year you book.

How much does each DVC point cost?

To break it down further, this is how much one DVC point costs at each home resort in early 2024. The per point price of DVC changes at Disney each year. We typically see Disney Vacation Club raise prices on a few resorts at a time. With resale DVC, the market changes regularly.

There’s something else you should know about DVC points. The numbers shown for DVC resale per point prices below are an average based on contracts of different sizes.

The number of points you buy directly affects the per point price.

A small 25 point contract is likely to cost more per point than a 200 point contract at the same home resort.

Is 150 DVC points enough?

Deciding how many points you need depends on your vacation wishes. Do you want to stay in three bedroom grand villas? Perhaps an economic studio is more your style. Points can go pretty far at older resorts like Disney’s BoardWalk Villas. Just around 100 points could get you a week long stay there during most times of the year.

However, at The Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa, the lowest cost time of year will cost 120 points to stay per week. All other times require more points.

So not only does the per point cost change with each resort, the amount of points per stay changes as well, based on that home resort’s individual point chart.

You may need more than 150 DVC points if:

  • You plan to book point stays for more than a week each year.
  • You like to stay in larger villas.
  • You prefer views that cost more points.
  • You typically visit during peak times like spring break or the week of Christmas.

Why do people buy 150 DVC points?

The 150 Disney Vacation Club points point value also has some significance.

Many people buy 150 DVC points, or more, directly from Disney because this is the amount needed to qualify for Membership Extras. 

These special perks and benefits are an added bonus and may not always be available. However, you can only become eligible for Membership Extras, like visiting Top of the World Lounge, by purchasing this specific point minimum through Disney. Discounts and Member events, like cruises, are also a benefit acquired through purchasing 150 points directly. You may already have similar discounts available to you if you have a Disney annual pass though.

Is it worth it to buy 150 points direct? With DVC resale, you can not gain access to Membership Extras but there’s a whole new world of savings to consider. Comparing the average prices above, you can see it’s at least worth pricing out the potential savings! Money in your pocket now might be more important to you than potential nominal discounts in the future.
