We have some great new data on DVC membership sales from dvcnews.com to share with you. The data points out that even though DVC sales are not what they were pre-pandemic, sales are continuing to steadily rise.
Let’s take a look at this data and discuss what this means for Walt Disney World and Disneyland.
In September 2020, 109,916 points were sold for the 11 Disney Vacation Club resorts at Walt Disney World, marking the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic started in March that monthly sales exceeded the 100,000 point mark. Almost as many points were sold in September then in the previous three months combined.
It is great to see that points are finally starting to be purchased again — that could be a great predictor for the future of Walt Disney World. It appears that fans of Disney cannot wait to get back to the parks!
What Does This Mean?
The sales of DVC memberships could potentially mean more guests will be visiting Walt Disney World Resort; however, it is important to remember that all Disney Parks worldwide are still operating at limited capacity right now.
It’s also worth noting that Disney World is not the only place where Disney sells DVC memberships — both Disneyland and Aulani are also DVC properties. Even though Disneyland remains closed, Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel and Spa is a Disney Vacation Club “home” resort and Disney is planning a brand new DVC tower for the Disneyland Hotel. Seeing how fast Walt Disney World’s sales are bouncing back, it looks like it would be beneficial for Disneyland to move quickly on its latest DVC rooms.
Disney has also just announced the reopening of Aulani, a Disney Resort and Spa in Hawaii, which could generate more new sales of DVC Memberships.
We will have to see what kind of positive impact this pick-up in sales of DVC will have in the parks. Hopefully, as more people are visiting more furloughed cast members will be able to return to work. Only time will tell.
