Disney Vacation Club Sign

Disney Vacation Club, or DVC, is Disney’s version of a vacation ownership program. Members purchase points that can then be used to get rooms at DVC hotels like Old Key West in Disney World, and other Disney properties, like the Hilton Head Island Resort in South Carolina. Being a DVC member also gives you access to special discounts and merchandise around Disney World, along with other perks. If you’re thinking of joining the club, you might be in luck.

Disney just announced some discounts for new DVC memberships! You can save up to $3,200 or more on new memberships with Disney’s Riviera Resort, plus there’s more savings on other memberships, too.

Here are the savings you can get at Disney’s Riviera Resort:


Want to get out of Florida and head to Hawaii instead? Here are the discounts you can get at Aulani:


And if you want to stay in one of the gorgeous new villas at the Grand Floridian, here are the discounts you can get there:


In order to take advantage of the savings, you’ll need to participate in a “Resort sales tour” first. This can be done either in person or over the phone. You’ll also need to purchase at least 150 points. Points are what you’ll use to reserve rooms. Each room will cost you a certain number of points based on the hotel, size of the room, time of year, and other factors. If you’re a current DVC member, you can view an Add-On offer by logging into your account. The discount expires on August 24th.

  1. Not sure why my previous comment on this article was not posting, but going to try again! If you’re even remotely considering becoming a DVC member, don’t do it! I’ve been a member now for about 10 years (and going to WDW for 25), and the last few years, plus covid, have shown me that Disney can make any and all the changes they want to your resort (not to mention the parks) without any regard for members. Everything that made it worthwhile to be a member has either been eliminated or changed beyond recognition. Magical express-gone, Tables in Wonderland-gone, complementary fast-passes-gone, Annual passes-gone. At the Grand Floridian, everything that sold me on becoming a member has been destroyed: No more Mizner’s, no more GF orchestra, and who knows it 1900 Park Fair is ever going to re-open. Simply put, you won’t get the return on your investment in the long run. Disney is holding all the cards, and so long as they offer you a hotel room for your points, they can do whatever they want. Save your money and invest in something else.

    1. I totally agree. Husband and I used to dream of adding on to our membership. I would say last five years or so have convinced us not to. Also, when paying over 200 per point do they really think $1 is a incentivating discount?
