Prices continue to go up at Disney. Disney Vacation Club Members are seeing those price increases too.
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!

Increase in Price Per Point
In December, Disney Vacation Club shared that the price per point at most resorts would be going up. Almost all the resorts went up $10 per point.
To read all the details read HERE.
DVC also raised the minimum buy-in, it was raised to 150 points. This is for a Direct Membership and to receive all Member benefits. These Members previously had a BLUE card. DVC responded with a statement regarding why they increased the minimum buy in amount. You can find that HERE.
