Disney Vacation Club members have noticed an increase on their 2019 annual dues. Our writer Whitney is a DVC owner of 150 points at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort and her dues have gone up $83 for 2019. Another writer’s parents own 270 points at Boulder Ridge and their increase was just over $100.
After calling in to verify, we have found that increase depends on how many points you own and what your home resort is. This doesn’t come at a complete surprise. Disney has been making small increases across all parks and resorts. With progress comes more overhead to cover. Back in February, we announced another change to DVC.
Disney announced an important change for Disney Vacation Club members. Previously, in order to access “Membership Extras,” a DVC member would need to maintain 25 points. As of February 25, 2018, all new DVC Members will be required to purchase and maintain 75 points to take advantage of the Membership Extras. These points must also be directly purchased from Disney and not the resale market.
It’s important to note that Disney says that the 75 points must be maintained. This is to avoid DVC Members purchasing the 75 points and then later selling on the resale market while still taking advantage of the Membership Extras. DVC Members previously with more than 25 points but less than the new 75 point threshold will not need the 75 points to access the Membership Extras.
Membership Extras for DVC Members include everything from dining and merchandise discounts to a large discount on Annual Passes. Losing these Membership Extras could be a big hit to the member’s wallet. To see a list of DVC Membership Extras, please CLICK HERE.
