The entry-level requirement to purchase a new direct Disney Vacation Club contract just got a little lower! DVC is now allowing new members the ability to purchase a contract for as low as 100 points. This is a departure from the 150-point minimum introduced in 2021 that aligned with the minimum to qualify for Membership Extras.
Note: Direct Members will still need at least 150 Vacation Points to qualify for direct member benefits and Membership Extras at this time.
The following promotional brochure was found in the Grand Floridian lobby and shared on DISboards:
While no official announcement has been made by Disney or Disney Vacation Club, multiple owners have reported seeing this advertisement around Walt Disney World and discussed when speaking to DVC Cast Members.
This decrease is the first of its kind since Disney Vacation Club went on a spree of increasing the minimum purchase requirement from 2018 through 2021. It also comes at a time when perks such as Annual Pass sales have recently returned.
- February 2018: Raised to 75 points.
- September 2019: Raised to 100 points.
- October 2020: Raised to 125 points.
- June 2021: Raised to 150 points
- April 2023: Lowered to 100 points (150-point requirement for Membership Extras)
With the sales of The Villas at Disneyland Hotel coming very soon, this decrease may be part of a larger sales plan for DVC as they continue to struggle with direct contract purchases.
