Jan 28, 2023: By DVC Advantages

Disney Vacation Club (DVC) is a vacation timeshare system and program owned and operated by Disney Vacation Development Inc. You have the option to buy directly from Disney or from a DVC Broker that is assisting an owner that is selling their ownership (DVC Resale).

It offers buyers a chance to own contracts in a specified resort with allocated points each year. These points are used to pay for hotel nights and can be banked to next year or borrowed from the upcoming year. These points can then be used to rent rooms at Disney World, Disneyland and a few resort locations outside of the major parks. Learn about buying your DVC contract here.

After agreeing on a purchase price, the contract then goes to Disney for the right of first refusal, where they can claim the contract for themselves, costing you nothing, but it does mean you have to repeat the process. From there, the titling and deed process will begin, which can take approximately 90 days to complete, Aulani can take longer.
