At DVC Resale Market we like to keep an economic Disney Vacation Club Resort (DVC) ranking maintained for our clients as prices, dues, resorts and Disney can change over time.

The chart below provides a long term economic ranking of Disney Vacation Club resorts to own. The long term value considers price, dues and years remaining on the deed to ultimately get to a price per point per year. This ranking may provide directional information in choosing a resort to own, especially for those Members or potential New Members who are less concerned about home resort priority and more focused on economic savings.

The biggest factor changing the economic rankings from this past Spring to now has been price. Due to a healthy demand and low inventory many DVC resorts have seen large increases in price. However, the prices for three resorts: Aulani, Grand Floridian and Polynesian have remained steady throughout the year with little fluctuation, and as a result have risen up the DVC economic ladder.

Despite experiencing significant price increases in 2017, Saratoga Springs and Bay Lake Tower still reign supreme as the top two economical DVC Resorts to own for the long haul.

Additionally, this cost per point per year from the chart above can be used to help determine what a DVC Member theoretically pays for a Disney Vacation Club Villa. For example, let’s say you purchased a Boardwalk contract and were going to stay at Boardwalk in a preferred view studio for one night on a weekday in Choice Season during Food and Wine Season at Epcot. The amount of points needed for that one night would be 15, and the estimated cost per point per year according to the chart above would be $11.19. So multiply the number of points needed by the cost per point and the result is 15 x $11.19 or $168/night.
