Disney Timeshare FAQ for Sellers
Can I Sell my Banked or Borrowed Vacation Club Points?
No. Banked or borrowed DVC points will not transfer to a new owner when you sell a DVC timeshare, so please do not include these in your ad. You can, however, rent out your points by advertising on SellaTimeshare.com, making a reservation at a Disney resort and having someone pay you to use it.
How Much are my Disney Vacation Club Points Worth?
DVC points hold their value relatively well, but you shouldn’t expect to sell them for more than you paid if you purchased through Disney. Buying a timeshare directly from the developer is like buying a new car. The moment you buy one its value is reduced by about 50% due to sales and marketing costs that are built into the resort sales price.
The best way to see how much your DVC points are worth is by using our free market analysis tool. This tool provides you with the average price of all DVC timeshares being advertised on our network of websites at the resort you own. This is a very good representation of your timeshare’s worth.
Can I Cancel My Subscription with Sellatimeshare.com After My Timeshare Has Sold?
Absolutely. Unlike other timeshare advertising companies that require payment for a full year, Sellatimeshare.com allows you to cancel at any time.
Disney Timeshare FAQ for Buyers
If you’re attempting to sell your Disney timeshare, it’s a good idea to know some of the most common questions potential buyers typically ask. Showing potential buyers that you’re knowledgeable about the product builds confidence with them and increases the chances that you’ll be able to sell your DVC points.
Will my family be treated the same if I buy resale?
Absolutely. The reality is that staff at the resorts won’t even know the timeshare was bought resale. There is nothing to worry about. Some perks won’t be available with resale purchases, but these rarely outweigh the savings buyers gain when buying on the resale market. Some perks lost when buying resale include:
- Points can’t be used for a Disney cruise or Adventures by Disney vacation plan
- Ability to book stays at Disney's non-timeshare hotels or for Disney cruises
Most DVC members agree that these perks aren’t a good use of DVC points anyway. Additionally, membership in a timeshare exchange program such as RCI, Interval International and DAE will allow resale owners to exchange their points toward cruise and vacation planning options if they choose.
Are DVC resale points legitimate?
Of course. It is illegal for Disney not to accept DVC points bought on the resale market.
Do my Disney Vacation Club Points Expire?
Yes, like most timeshare brands, DVC points expire each year. Points can be banked to be used the following year, but if they are not used after being banked they will be lost.
When my Kids Grow Up Will I Still Want my Disney Timeshare?
This really depends on the buyer’s personal preferences. Many Disney timeshare owners enjoy Disney so much that they’re happy to go without their children. It’s kind of like going to the movies without your kids. Instead of seeing the newest animated cartoon you can see whatever you want!
How many DVC points do I need?
This is one of the most common questions buyers will ask. Some things to consider when deciding how many points you should purchase include:
- How often do you plan to visit?
- At what time of the year do you plan on visiting?
- Do you mind vacationing in the middle of the week rather than on the weekend?
- How many rooms will you need?
- Is there a particular DVC resort you must stay at?
Busy seasons such as Easter week or the week between Christmas and New Year’s will require more points. Newer resorts, weekend visits and additional bedrooms and bathrooms will require more points as well. Slower seasons in mid-fall, early December and some weeks in February will not need as many points. Older resorts like Disney’s Old Key West resort require fewer points as well.
As a general rule of thumb, it’s always better to buy fewer points than you may need and add on later. Even with a strong DVC resale market, it’s easier to buy points than to sell them and the more points that you own, the higher your maintenance fees will be. If you purchase resale DVC points you may buy as many or as few points as you need. If buying directly from Disney you will need to purchase at least 150 points. This flexibility makes it very easy for you to buy a few extra points down the road if you need them.
An example might help. A family of four who’d like to have a one bedroom one-bathroom week in the high season will likely want to purchase at least 200 points. This could buy them a week at Disney’s Boardwalk Villas or Polynesian Villas & Bungalows in February, May or August.
Disney Timeshare Facts & Updates
Many buyers want the transaction to go smoothly and quickly so the timeshare may be used towards an upcoming Disney vacation. For this reason, it is crucial that you know all of the facts and recent updates about DVC so the sale can go off without a hitch. We recommend memorizing the below bullet points:
- Resale DVC points can be much cheaper than the points sold by Disney. This discount will depend on the location of the resort and when it was built. Newer locations such as Disney’s Bay Lake Tower are only about 30% cheaper than the points sold by Disney, but other locations such as Disney’s Vero Beach Resort are up to 70% cheaper.
- DVC members receive various discounts on a variety of things including:
- spa treatments
- storage lockers
- children’s activities
- annual park passes
- and more
- There are special member areas spread out throughout the park that provide free drinks, Wi-Fi and more.
- Resale DVC timeshare owners may exchange their timeshare in the World Passport Collection of more than 500 resorts worldwide. These 500 resorts are part of reputable partner brands such as Club Intrawest, Club Cordial and RCI.
- Resale DVC timeshare owners may stay at all 13 DVC resort properties.
- DVC members can begin booking 11 months before their preferred vacation dates at their home resorts. This helps ensure that owners at their home resorts are able to book the vacation dates they really want before other guests have the option to fill the rooms. A home resort is the resort that the DVC points were originally purchased at.
- DVC members can begin booking 7 months before their preferred vacation dates at any of the other DVC resorts.
