Disney Vacation Club Potentially Raising Prices on Thirteen “Sold Out” Properties

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

According to DVCNews, Disney Vacation Club is planning on raising prices thirteen of its sold-out properties. Despite limited advertising of these “sold-out” resorts, buyers can occasionally find points to buy at these resorts.

Prices will rise between $5 and $20 per point at the sold-out resorts, based on the resort. For example, Saratoga Springs would raise by $5 per point whereas the Grand Californian would raise by $20 per point.

Other sources state that the per point price increase could reach $50 at some resorts. Disney occasionally acquires points at these sold-out resorts via right of first refusal or point transfers and foreclosures.

No formal announcement has been made at this time, but the new price per point charts are expected to come out by the end of the month.

Would someone please explain why people who visit Walt Disney World / Disneyland and enjoy it so much, decide purchasing, at a higher cost than visiting a resort, a time share that is less themed than the actual property, often worse locations, have worse booking options than regular resort guests, and then have to continue to pay high fees to keep the time share that is horribly complicated to get out of?? If anyone just runs the numbers, you can book a long trip at club level, with two or three short trips a year, for LESS money than these… Read more »

Not sure why. We “rented” points to stay at Old Key West, Disney’s first DVC property, in a studio for 6 nights earlier this month. Then went to Pop Century for 3 nights. The two were not that different, and Pop was actually a few dollars more per night. Yes, the OKW room was larger but it’s odd shape meant the TV wasn’t very viewable from one bed unless you turned it at an angle, and in fact it didn’t work at all. The OKW bathroom was slightly larger but didn’t have a separation between areas, so basically a toss-up… Read more »

I agree weve always stayed at a moderate resort, weve also stayed at the Tree houses and the wilderness cabins. We’re the reason why Disney prices keep going up. Being a yearly visitor, an staying for a week with full parkhopper plus passes, this last trip finished me… the nickel and diming for EVERYTHING is /has made me see that our once favorite Vacation spot was not enjoyable any more. I have an always had wanderlust, just this year 2019 I’ve spent a week in Oregon’s mt Hood an Lincon beach, pigeon Forge Tennessee, Pt Plesant beach NJ ,Stone Mt… Read more »

It really depends on how you use it. Here’s a great example: in 2016, we took 2 trips. One during Flower & Garden Festival and one during Food & Wine. They were 11 days and 10 days long. We stayed in a studio (like a standard hotel room, plus a kitchenette). We pay $210 a month in dues. The initial cost was paid for a long time ago. So, for 2016, we stayed 21 days for $2520, at Saratoga, just across from Downtown Disney with excellent dining. We walked, and we had a view across the lake. Last year, we… Read more »
