01 May Which is the Least Expensive DVC Resort?
Disney Vacation Club per point prices continue to rise over time. Because of this, resale DVC point prices ultimately continue to rise over time as well though the numbers often fluctuate from month to month. In order to get the best possible rate on DVC you might be thinking, which is the least expensive DVC resort? Yes, each Disney Vacation Club resort is priced differently per point but it’s not recommended to pick the one with the lowest per point price for that reason only. The best way to choose your home resort is to pick the property you’d be happiest staying at. Disney Vacation Club does have a flexible system that allows almost all Members to use their points to book at other resorts. Still, the home resort booking advantage and ability to book eleven months out can make a big difference in trip planning. It’s very likely that the best way to get DVC points at a price you’ll be happy with is through buying resale DVC. Prices are almost always surprisingly better, often thousands less, on the resale market when compared to buying direct from Disney.

While paying the lowest per point price may sound intriguing, you also want to consult with your real estate professional about trying to avoid the Right of First Refusal. During the resale DVC process, there is a point where Disney has the right to purchase the contract back. If the price is very low, it’s likely Disney may take more of an interest in the contract and purchase it back instead of letting you buy it. Your Expert will help you find a number that feels like a great value but also works against Disney’s recent ROFR price trends so you can have the best chance at a successful purchase.
