Are you wanting to become a Disney Vacation Club Member? Are you wanting to add on points? You better act fast because things are about to get even more expensive! Read on for all the details.
Disney Vacation Club
DVC is short for Disney Vacation Club. This is Disney’s version of a time share. However, DVC has the flexibility of a point system.
With their point system you can book the time of year you travel and type of accommodation. You can even stay at different resorts.
With this style of timeshare you are NEVER stuck in a particular week every year. You purchase an allotment of points that you can then choose to spend however you would like. This could be several vacations or bank and borrow your points for one big vacation!

Minimum Buy In
The minimum buy-in amount was raised to 150 points. This is for a Direct Membership and to receive all Member benefits. These Members previously had a BLUE card.
Another option to become a Member (but you will not have full membership benefits) would be to buy resale. These Members had a WHITE card.
DVC responded with a statement regarding why they increased the minimum buy in amount. You can find that HERE.
Price Increase Ahead
Speaking with a DVC guide today, I was told that almost ALL the resorts will increase by $10 per point! This is a big jump, especially when prices just increased this spring.
Most resorts will increase by $10 per point on December 4, 2022!
This means that resorts that are currently $207 per point will soon be $217! This is even happening for sold out resorts, so you can expect to see these $10 per point increases on places like Copper Creek and Beach Club. The only resort to not see a price increase will be the Polynesian.
We can expect to see this change on December 4, 2022. If you are thinking about buying direct, you should consider buying now versus later.
This is not being advertised on the Disney Vacation Club website, however it is not a secret. DVC guides are willingly sharing this information!
