Also, DVC members have access to thousands of resorts all over the world through Resort Condominiums International (RCI).

Purchasing a Disney Vacation Club resale is much cheaper than purchasing from Disney. Thus buyers often think there must be a big difference in the product and how it works. In reality, the differences are minimal. They’re what’s called ‘incidental benefits,’ and the following is an explanation of those benefits:
“You will receive the same great service as any other Disney Vacation Club member! You’ll have access to Member Services and all the DVC Resorts and all of the World Passport Collection Resorts (RCI). The points purchase on the Resale Market cannot be used towards purchasing Disney Cruises, stays at Disney Hotels (that are not DVC Resorts), Adventures by Disney and the Concierge Collection. These options are not a popular use of points. Many people who are considering vacationing in this way would likely elect to rent out their points. With the extra cash left over, use that to pay for their cruise. Also, note that Disney denotes these options as incidental benefits of Membership. Disney reserves the right to discontinue them at any time regardless of how the membership is purchased.”
