Purchasing resale DVC points is an investment into your future Disney vacations at the best possible price! Becoming a Disney Vacation Club Member through resale is exciting and there’s a lot to know. Like where can you use DVC resale points?

Where Can You Use DVC Resale Points

You can use DVC resale points at most Disney Vacation Club Resorts but there are some exceptions. If you buy DVC resale points at one of the first 14 Disney Vacation Club Resorts, you can book there and at any of the other first 14 DVC resorts. The following are the first 14 Disney Vacation Club Resorts and are all located at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida unless otherwise noted:

Disney’s Old Key West Resort

Disney’s Vero Beach Resort in Vero Beach, Florida

Disney’s Hilton Head Island Resort in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina

Disney’s Boardwalk Villas

Boulder Ridge Villas at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge

Disney’s Beach Club Villas

Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa

Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas

Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort

Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa at Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California

Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa in Hawaii

The Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa

Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows

Copper Creek Villas and Cabins at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge

Then came Disney’s Riviera Resort which opened in 2019 as the 15th Disney Vacation Club Resort. Prior to this resort, DVC Members could use their points at all other Disney Vacation Club Resorts, based on availability, whether they purchased resale or direct. When Disney’s Riviera Resort was built, things changed for those using DVC resale points. Disney Vacation Club updated it’s policy to reflect that when purchasing DVC resale with a Home Resort other than Riviera, Members can not use those points book at Riviera. Furthermore, resale DVC points purchased with a Riviera Home Resort can not be used at other resorts.

This may or may not have an effect on your purchasing decisions but it’s good to be aware of. For those who love Disney’s Riviera Resort but also want flexibility, it’s always an option to purchase a resale DVC contract there and elsewhere. You could bank or borrow your points to alternate staying at Riviera and staying at other resorts depending on which points you use. This is just one scenario. Talking to a DVC Resale Expert about finding a contract that will fit your vacation needs will be helpful if you have specific questions.
