It’s no secret that Disney hotels can be expensive.
So, how can you take advantage of all the perks that staying in a Disney hotel comes with while not breaking the bank? You’ve probably heard all sorts of tips on when to book and how to save, but we’re sharing the ONE way you can beat Disney’s high hotel prices.
People who travel to Disney World often decide to buy into the Disney Vacation Club, because of the savings they realize on hotel stays, merchandise, special events and more.
BUT, the Disney Vacation Club can be a huge investment. There is a way to save on buying a DVC contract, though. And we don’t talk about it enough!
Vacation Club Life (VCL) is a family-owned and operated, licensed Florida Real Estate Brokerage that specializes in Disney Vacation Club resales. Essentially, it’s a service where you can buy Disney Vacation Club contracts from owners who have already purchased them but have decided they want to sell theirs.
As we said earlier, owning a DVC contract is a great way to save money on a Disney Vacation Club room. The DVC rooms are typically deluxe villas, which means you’ll get more square footage in some of these rooms when compared to standard hotel rooms.
Just think about the cost savings for the Grand Floridian Resort Studio as an example. That’s a $900 per night room on average, but with DVC it’s only 29 points. The annual cost to purchase 29 points at the Grand Floridian is $213 ($7.33 per point). So you’re getting a Deluxe Hotel for Value rates in this scenario!
In addition to the obviously lower prices you will pay buying a resale DVC contract over buying a new contract directly from Disney, there are some other benefits you probably haven’t thought about. First off, navigating all the ins and outs of using your DVC points to your advantage can seem a bit complicated when you’re first learning the “system.” Even more complicated — figuring out the optimal amount of points you want to buy in your contract. The folks at Vacation Club Life have the expertise needed to help you with these decisions — and they will give you their honest opinion about what will work best for your situation.
Another advantage of buying a resale DVC contract is that you often have a wider choice of resorts to choose as your “home resort” than you would otherwise. DVC availability at some resorts is sold out — so the only way to make that resort your home resort is through a resale.
If you’re looking to plan an upcoming Disney vacation and want to save as much money as possible on your hotel, Vacation Club Life is a great place to start!
Stay tuned to DFB as we share more ways you can save on your next Disney World vacation!
