The Disney Vacation Club is raising its 2021 annual dues for members. DVC members pay annual dues in association with their timeshare ownership. Those dues cover the operating costs of the resorts as well as property taxes and some allocation for long-term repairs and upgrades.
Take a look at the proposed figures for the 2021 year:
|Resort||2020 Dues||2021 Dues||Increase|
|Animal Kingdom Villas||$7.6685||$8.0278||+4.68%|
|Bay Lake Tower||$6.5770||$6.8998||+4.91%|
|Beach Club Villas||$7.0634||$7.4373||+5.29%|
|Copper Creek Villas||$7.4471||$7.5903||+1.92%|
|Old Key West||$7.8363||$8.3578||+6.65%|
Resorts being actively marketed by DVC like Copper Creek Villas & Cabins, Disney’s Riviera Resort and Aulani, Disney Vacation Club Villas will receive the lowest increase.
DVC dues have been steadily rising over the last several years as a result of union contracts designed to bring employee wages up to $15 per hour. 2021 will bring the final phase of this increase. Property taxes are also up modestly for most Walt Disney World properties.
The proposed budget is based on projected operating costs for the 2021 calendar year. There have been rumors of DVC members being eligible for a 2020 dues credit due to the COVID-19 closures. This hasn’t been confirmed but it seems logical that there would be a budget excess from 2020.
