Have you always wanted to live at Disney World, or at least have almost a guarantee that you could visit whenever you wanted? Disney Vacation Club is for you. You may not want to move to Florida — and Disney’s Golden Oak may be a little out of reach right now — but Disney Vacation Club allows you to come pretty close to living at Walt Disney World Resort.
And now, it’s become easier than ever to become a Disney Vacation Club owner.
Yes, that’s right, an “owner.” As a DVC member, you purchase points that you can redeem for Disney vacations at one of the many DVC properties all around the world. And if you want to make yourself at home at Walt Disney World, this is how you do it. Your DVC membership and points allow you to save up to 50% on Disney vacations over the lifetime of your contract — and you’ll feel right at home at a villa. Click here for more information on DVC.
So, why is now a great time to become a DVC member? Well, thanks to DVCNews.com, we’ve found out that Walt Disney World Resort is now encouraging walk-in appointments and tours for prospective DVC members. With an emphasis on the Disney Vacation Club tour, this means it’s become easier for you to take a look at the villas you are the most curious about, and then make an appointment and sit down to discuss contracts.
Disney Vacation Club is currently offering “no-pressure walk-in tours” at nine of the eleven DVC resorts at Disney World, including the following:
- Three bedroom Grand Villas at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas – Kidani Village
- Three bedroom Grand Villas at Saratoga Springs
- Cascade Cabin at Copper Creek Villas
- Watertop Bungalow at Disney’s Polynesian Villas
- Two bedroom villas at other DVC resorts at WDW
As DVCNews reports, the only resorts not currently providing a model room for tours are Boulder Ridge Villas at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge and Disney’s Old Key West Resort.
Disney Vacation Club may not allow you to move into Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge full-time. But with the convenience of DVC and the luxury of staying in a villa (which is essentially an apartment on Disney property), you can definitely come close to it if that’s a goal of yours!
Disney Vacation Club — Disney’s version of a timeshare — allows you the flexibility of booking a trip months and months in advance while redeeming points that you have already paid for. And for someone who knows they want to take multiple Disney trips a year — or maybe someone who wants to take one long three-week vacation — then DVC may be a fantastic option for you.
Plus, DVC membership is not just at Disney World. You can also travel to Aulani in Hawaii, Disneyland in California, and other properties. And you can even use DVC points on a Disney Cruise!
