Frequently Asked Questions: How to Sell Disney Vacation Club Membership

Can I sell my Disney Vacation Club on my own?

Anyone selling Disney Vacation Club Membership needs to know all of the parts in the process. Similar to selling a home or other real estate, selling DVC points has particular steps that must be done in a certain order. There are papers that must be signed, some must be notarized, others don’t need to be. There are a lot of little details that go into selling DVC. You can sell Disney Vacation Club on your own but it’s not recommended.

If you want to sell your Disney Vacation Club contract, finding a buyer can be much easier with a DVC resale company. Even Disney says, “You may independently find a licensed real estate broker,” regarding assisting with the selling of a Membership.

Does Disney Vacation Club buy contracts back?

Disney Vacation Club does not have a resale department. The company will provide information about your contract needed to sell but they will not sell it for you.

In your research, you might be wondering, can you sell DVC back to Disney? The short answer is no, you can not sell DVC back to Disney the same way you sell resale. Disney does sometimes buy DVC points back from its Members. The amount they are willing to pay is most likely far from what you want to get for your contract. There is no negotiating with Disney Vacation Club if they are willing to buy your points. They set the price and that’s that. If you are interested in selling Disney Vacation Club points and getting the best return, selling DVC back to Disney is not your best option. 

Note that in DVC resale, there is a part of the closing process where Disney has the Right of First Refusal. This means they can buy a contract back at the agreed upon price instead of letting a sale go through for a buyer. This is different than reselling and not something sellers have control over or a say in.

How much can I make if I sell DVC points?

So your carriage has turned into a pumpkin. If you just see dollar signs when you look at your timeshare, this part is for you. How much you can make from selling DVC varies greatly per individual contract. This is because DVC resale per point prices depend on the home resort on the contract and other specific details. The Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort sell for more than Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort. Of course the amount of points you own also greatly impacts how much you can expect to sell a contract for.

When you purchased a contract also plays an important role in how much you can make from the sale. Those who bought early on are much likely to make more from their vacation investment. The Disney timeshare is not really an investment but if you bought points at a resort that has gone up over time, you can definitely make money back from selling DVC.

The fastest way to get an idea of what you might be able to make from selling DVC points, is to take a look at our resale DVC listings. Here you’ll find actual prices contracts are going for. Listings marked with Sale Pending in the far right column have been recently put under contract and show what buyers have been willing to pay. If you don’t see a contract like yours, or you’d prefer a complimentary valuation of your particular contract, get in touch with DVC Resale Experts.

Note that those selling DVC pay a commission and are responsible for Disney’s estoppel fee.

What if I want to sell DVC points and buy a different DVC contract?

Let’s say you want to sell Disney Vacation Club points because you want a different point value. That’s reasonable. If over time you’ve come to discover your 100 point contract just isn’t enough and you’d prefer a bigger point value, we have resale DVC listings to consider. Maybe there’s a different resort you’d rather call home. Whatever the case, the DVC Resale Experts can help you buy and sell DVC.

The Experts will be happy to sell Disney points to you at a rate you’ll love. With DVC resale, sellers and buyers can walk away happy. The most magical timeshare has gone up in cost over time. As per point prices increase at Disney, resale prices rise too. Resale DVC still provides excellent per point prices when compared to costs directly from Disney.

Do I still have to pay dues when I sell my DVC timeshare?

When selling DVC Membership, you are completely letting go of that contract. The name on the contract is changed and after it’s sold, all associated fees are the responsibility of the new owner. That means when you sell DVC Membership you no longer have to pay dues.

However, when you are in the process of selling DVC timeshare, you will need to keep up with your payments. That means paying your annual dues if they are due and continuing to pay your loan payments if you have one.

Can I sell my Disney Vacation Club if I have a trip booked?

Transparency is key with any important transaction like selling DVC timeshare. If you’re wondering how to sell Disney Vacation Club points with an upcoming vacation on the calendar, we can help. We understand you might have one last trip booked on your points. This is something we see regularly and here’s how it works. When you sell DVC timeshare, one of the first things you’ll do is present basic information about the contract. You’ll want to tell your Expert about your upcoming trip if you haven’t already.

The value of resale DVC points depends not only on the annual point value but also on the number of points available. If you have a trip booked when you list your contract, this affects the number of points available on your contract.

The one thing to know is that you will have to wait until your trip is over to complete the sale.

Having to wait a bit longer may or may not deter someone from buying your DVC resale contract. Either way, it’s important to be clear about the buyer potentially having to wait a little longer. There’s always a chance your contract meets the specific needs of a potential buyer who has been looking. It’s also possible that there isn’t a rush for someone to buy a contract. No matter the case, providing all information upfront, like if you have a points trip booked, makes the process as smooth as possible.
