When is the Best Time to Buy DVC Resale Points?

When is the Best Time to Buy DVC Resale Points?

I own two Disney Vacation Club contracts, one at Animal Kingdom Villas and one at Boardwalk Villas. Both of these contracts were purchased via the resale market, one with Fidelity Resales and the other with The Timeshare Store. For both the Animal Kingdom Villas contract and the Boardwalk Vilals contract we signed the paperwork in mid December, with the closings happening in January or February. Prior to purchasing both contracts, I did do some informal research on the best time of the year to buy. Thanks to Paul from Fidelity Resales for emailing me about their blog post on the agency’s official research on just this topic.

DVC Boardwalk Villas Standard Studio Views

DVC Boardwalk Villas Standard Studio Views

The standard view villas at Disney’s Boardwalk Villas are are a great value in my opinion. For a low points value, you can stay right in the heart of the action. Only a short walk to World Showcase at Epcot and a reasonable walk to Hollywood Studios, these villas have become my first choice of where to stay with my DVC points when I am looking for value.

Favorite Disney Vacation Club Pins

Favorite Disney Vacation Club Pins

Have a favorite Disney Vacation Club pin? I was looking through my DVC pins as I prepare to leave for a Disneyworld trip at Boardwalk Villas this weekend. And this pin stuck out a my favorite. I true classic,, Steamboat Mickey, with Disney Vacation Club displayed underneath. I believe I received this pin during a May 2014 Disney Dream cruse to the Bahamas. At the Disney Vacation Club member gathering they mentioned that if you stop by the DVC desk each day, you’ll receive a special treat. And a new pin was the special gift each day I remembered to stop by.

I love reading up on what’s new with Disney Vacation Club. On the cover are Mickey and Minnie decorating a Christmas Tree. Also included with the magazine were two DVC Disney Vacation Club Member magnets as seen in the picture. Among the topics covered in this quarterly edition are:
