Choose a DVC Home Resort closest to your favorite Disney location.

The first step to becoming a full-fledged Disney Vacation Club (DVC) Member is buying real estate ownership interest at your chosen DVC Resort. Check out the following Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) to find out how:

  • What is a DVC Home Resort?“Home Resort” is the term used to refer to the DVC Resort for which you own real estate interest.
  • Becoming a DVC Member gives me access to 15 Disney Vacation Club Resorts and more than 2,000+ partner destinations worldwide. What’s the point in choosing a Home Resort?As a DVC member, choosing a Home Resort maximizes your perks and privileges. For instance, you can book your stay nearly a year in advance.

    Choose a Home Resort that you can visit often – one in a location that’s convenient or close to you. Or select one with amenities and attractions that the whole family can enjoy again and again.

    Your choice of Home Resort has an effect on three key factors:

    1. Booking dates – You can reserve accommodations at your Home Resort as early as 11 months ahead, whereas other DVC Resorts only offer an advance booking window of up to 7 months. The longer lead time virtually guarantees that there is always room for you at your most preferred DVC Resort.
    2. Annual dues – Different DVC Resorts have different annual maintenance fees – some offer more practical and cost-effective options in the long term than others.
    3. Years remaining on contract – DVC memberships tend to vary among the different DVC Resorts.
