UPDATE 6/24/2021: Disney Vacation Club has updated its online pricing to reflect these price increases effective today, Thursday, June 24th, for new member purchases.
You did not misread that title – It is happening! Several Disney Vacation Club properties are seeing an increase in their direct sold-out price per point, including our first-ever $300+ per point resort.
Three new sold-out resort price increases are going into effect on June 24th, 2021, for new Disney Vacation Club members and on July 15th, 2021, for current members looking to add on more points.
|Resort||Previous Direct Price||New Direct Price||Increase|
|Disney’s Old Key West Resort||$165||$170||+ $5|
|Boulder Ridge Villas at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge||$186||$190||+ $4|
|The Villas at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel||$295||$310||+ $15|
This marks the second increase in less than twelve months for the Grand Californian, which saw its price increase from $280 to $295 per point back on January 14th, 2021. In total, this equals a $30 per point increase year over year. If you are a Grand Californian owner, that news is pretty exciting! But for the rest of us dreaming of adding VGC points to our collection, it sounds a bit scary.
The good news is that Disney Vacation Club is revisiting some of its old tricks for rolling out these increases. While direct pricing has already increased for new members, current DVC members looking to add-on will benefit from some additional time before the increased pricing goes into effect.
With these increases, 13 out of 15 Disney Vacation Club Resorts have seen their direct sold-out price increase over the past twelve months, with only Animal Kingdom Villas and Grand Floridian unchanged.
That being said, we thought this would be a good time to take a full look at where direct pricing currently stands for all Disney Vacation Club properties:
|Animal Kingdom Villas||$186 per point|
|Aulani||$201 per point|
|Bay Lake Tower||$245 per point|
|Beach Club Villas||$245 per point|
|BoardWalk Villas||$210 per point|
|Boulder Ridge||$190 per point|
|Copper Creek Villas||$225 per point|
|Grand Californian||$310 per point|
|Grand Floridian||$255 per point|
|Hilton Head||$140 per point|
|Old Key West||$170 per point|
|Polynesian||$250 per point|
|Riviera||$201 per point|
|Saratoga Springs||$180 per point|
|Vero Beach||$125 per point|
