Resale Restrictions

Disney Events

New DVC Resale Restrictions

Effective for resale purchases submitted on or after January 19, 2019: Disney Vacation Club resale contracts purchased for the original 14 DVC resorts will only be able to exchange into those 14 existing resorts in the DVC network. These contracts will not be able to transfer into Disney’s Riviera Resort, Reflections – A Disney Lakeside Lodge and possibly additional future properties in the DVC system. All Members will still be able to exchange with RCI.

Once sales of Disney’s Riviera Resort begin, members who purchase a resale of Disney’s Riviera will only be able to stay at Disney’s Riviera Resort, but not any of the other DVC Resorts in the network. Those Members will still have access to RCI.

What if I am in the process of purchasing a DVC Resale now?

Any contracts submitted to Disney for a right of first refusal (ROFR) before January 19, 2019, will be “grandfathered.” Therefore by purchasing before January 19, 2019, that contract can be used at the original 14 resorts; in addition to the Riviera, Reflections and future resorts.

What are the Best options after January 19th, 2019?

The Disney Vacation Club program is about flexibility and the idea of staying at different locations within the network is what members love to do! Will members still have the ability to do this? Absolutely! The 14 existing DVC resorts are most likely the best Disney may ever have to offer. More than likely, they will remain the most popular resorts for years to come. All of the current resorts are close to Disney Theme Parks, thus making them ideal vacation locations. One reason Bay Lake Tower is so popular is because it's a 5-minute walk to the Magic Kingdom. Members have the option of owning a home resort at 14 different locations- three of those resorts are on the monorail- the <strong>Polynesian, Grand Floridian </strong>as well as Bay Lake Tower.

Who will Receive the Greatest Restriction?

This new restriction will significantly impact members who opt to purchase a Rivera contract directly from DVC. If -but most likely when- those members decide to sell their contracts, the current restriction will significantly reduce the value of their contract on the resale market. If the member buys the contract from Disney and holds it for 50 years or until the contract expires, the member will not feel the impact of the restriction. If, however, they choose to sell their contract at some point, this asset has far less value on the resale market. Buyers rarely plan to sell when they are in the process of buying a membership. However, the reality is that life happens- and many members find themselves selling at some point. Life changes and they find themselves needing or wanting to sell.

Future Value

When receiving our training from Disney, we were taught to never refer to joining the Vacation Club as an investment. Vacation Club memberships are an investment in future vacations. More than likely, we will see Rivera contracts appear on the resale market within 12 months of Disney selling them. When this happens, we can assess the resale value of a Rivera contract.

When purchasing a $30,000-$50,000 Rivera contract, buyers risk the resale value being a fraction of the cost within a year. Of course, this is just speculation and only time will tell. We certainly think this is something direct buyers need to strongly consider before buying.
