My Take on Disney Vacation Club Membership

There is nothing more thrilling and exciting than visiting Walt Disney World with my children. It’s more of an escape from my monotonous life to a space of delightful joys. Since Christmas holidays are approaching and the New-year is about to commence, it’s the time of the year I would want to treat my little ones with what they would love the most, A visit to Walt Disney World(WDW).

If you are a mother with an infant and would rather avoid crowds, then it might not be the best idea to visit WDW between Christmas and New Year’s Eve, but if you are like me and are looking for holiday celebrations to double the fun, then this moment is certainly for you. Be it your first trip or recurrence, the first thing that comes to our minds when planning a vacation to WDW is the expenditure. For a large family, Walt Disney World could be a bit expensive but that’s where Disney Vacation Club comes in.

Disney Vacation Club is a program where many joint owners have the right to use a property as a holiday home under a time-sharing scheme which was launched by Disney itself. If you visit WDW on yearly basis this program is certainly the best optionfor you. The timeshare program, which is run by WDW, consists of 14 resorts, ten DVC resorts at Walt Disney World and one DVC resort at Disneyland in California, as well as one resort each in Oahu, Vero Beach, Florida and Hilton Head, South Carolina.

Disney Vacation Club works on a point system that allows its members to use points at any of their desired resorts. I visit DWD on yearly and sometimes on monthly basis so I’m always looking to save some bucks, that’s why instead of choosing to buy points directly from Disney Vacation Club which could be a bit costly, I save money by purchasing a Disney Vacation Club membership on the DVC resales market, which means I buy froma private owner of that timeshare deed or withclub points. As DVC does not have a resale department so you would need to buy or sell your resale through a licensed real estate professional.

My DVC membership can be used to book rooms at any of the eight DVC resorts at Walt Disney World namely Animal Kingdom, Bay Lake Tower, Beach Club Villas, Boardwalk Villas, Grand Floridian, Old Key West, Saratoga Springs, and Wilderness Lodge andalso the 4 outside resorts such as Aulani Hawaii, Grand Californian Villas, Vero Beach, and Hilton Head. Furthermore,I can also use my points for RCI, Club Cordial, and Club Intrawest exchanges.

There are numerous benefits to a Disney Vacation Club membership. Ranging from discounts on annual passes, and special member events to desert parties and discounts for dining, purchasing a Disney Vacation Club membership was totally worth the investment. Since I’m a Disney loving mom and the smiles on my children’s faces is all I’m looking to cherish, DVC membership serves me and my family just well.
