The Ultimate Guide to Disney Vacation Club Resorts

Disney Vacation Club Resorts


Disney Vacation Club (DVC), also known as Disney Deluxe Villas, offers a unique and luxurious way to experience Disney World. While initially designed as timeshares, these resorts are available to everyone, not just DVC members. In this comprehensive guide, we’ll delve into the details of Disney Vacation Club resorts, from accommodation types to the variety of resorts available.

Understanding Disney Vacation Club Resorts: A Snapshot

Disney Vacation Club resorts, or Deluxe Villas, are part of Disney’s innovative approach to accommodation. These resorts operate like regular Disney resorts and can be booked directly with Disney. Moreover, even if you’re not a DVC member, you can save money by privately renting DVC points from a Disney Vacation Club member.

Four Types of Accommodations: Tailoring Your Stay

DVC resorts offer four types of accommodations, each designed to cater to different preferences and group sizes:
