Disney Vacation Club is rumored to increase the direct price per point for ALL sold out DVC Resorts within the next two weeks.
As of Wednesday evening, we have heard conflicting reports regarding the extent of the increase for each resort. However, it appears more and more likely that an increase will occur within the coming days to weeks for all sold-out resorts.
Thursday morning, many over on DISboards, as well as the DVC Fan Facebook Group, were reporting that multiple DVC Guides claimed that the following pricing would go into effect on Thursday, October 31st, 2019.
After speaking personally to a guide on Saturday, it appears the pricing listed below is correct and will be going into effect by November 1st. Individuals who inquire prior to that date will be grandfathered into current prices as long as they close by mid-November.
|Animal Kingdom Villas||$186||+ $10|
|Bay Lake Tower||$235||+ $10|
|Beach Club Villas||$235||+ $10|
|BoardWalk Villas||$200||+ $10|
|Boulder Ridge||$186||+ $10|
|Copper Creek Villas||$220||+ $10|
|Grand Californian||$280||+ $20|
|Grand Floridian||$255||+ $10|
|Hilton Head||$135||+ $10|

This news comes amid questions regarding the performance and sales of DVC’s newest property, Disney’s Riviera Resort. With resale restrictions a concern of many potential purchasers, some buyers may be electing to purchase a sold-out resort directly rather than purchasing Riviera. This was discussed several months ago on The DVC Show.
With this DVC direct price increase, some sold-out resorts such as Grand Californian are creeping closer and closer towards the $300 per point mark. This could prove to be very good for DVC resale purchases and sales or signal an increase in Disney Vacation Club taking contracts via ROFR.
No official announcement has been made by Disney or Disney Vacation Club at this time. Stay tuned to DVC Fan and our DVC Fan Facebook Group for more information as it becomes available and reactions from Pete and the team!
Does this rumored increase make you more likely to buy resale or direct?
