The monthly cost of Disney Vacation Club will vary greatly depending on the details of your contract. Smaller contracts at certain resorts can be much more affordable than others. You can also splurge and buy a lot of points for longer stays or larger accommodations.

How Much Does Disney Vacation Club Cost Per Month FAQs

Do DVC annual dues go up every year?

Disney Vacation Club justifies raising annual dues with an explanation and break down each year. For more, see how much do DVC dues go up each year?

How many DVC points do I need?

Knowing when you might visit, where you want to stay and what kind of room you need can help you decide the number of points you need. The minimum amount of points Disney Vacation Club will let you buy directly from them is 100. The minimum amount of points you need to purchase from Disney Vacation Club directly in order to qualify for all Membership Extras like discounts and exclusive events is 150. 

With resale, there is a lot more flexibility. Not only does your dollar go further but you can buy smaller contracts. On the DVC resale market we regularly see small contracts come through. Thinking you would like to start out with just 50 or even 30 points for quick stays? It’s possible with resale.

On the other hand, you may need a lot of points if you have a large family, want private bedrooms for travelers in your party or want to stay at peak times like the week of Christmas. 

The Disney Vacation Club point charts will help you see how many points you need to stay different places at different times throughout the year. Point charts shift a bit each year based on variables like different school breaks and holidays changing dates.

Does your home resort matter?

Your home resort does matter when you buy Disney Vacation Club. Buying the lowest priced resort for the price alone is not the best option. You get a booking advantage at the resort you buy your points from. This means you can book with your points eleven months out at your home resort. If eligible, you can use your points to book at other resorts seven months out. When you book at your home resort you get the best availability. This is why it’s best to carefully consider which DVC home resort is right for you. Especially if you have a limited timeframe when you can travel.
