Disney Vacation Club Reviews



So are you looking for some Disney Vacation Club Reviews?


Me at Koh Samui First of all, what is a "Vacation Club" anyway?


Well, a vacation club is usually made up of timeshare units which can be purchased by guests to be used annually at that resort and others affiliated with that resort. Simply put, being a member of a vacation club , like the Disney Vacation Club will entitle you to discounts on accomodations for years to come. Basically you will be paying for future holidays in today's price.


Now we all know a thing or two about inflation, If you plan to take a nice family vacation atleast once a year, then you should consider getting a vacation club memembership instead.


You will save THOUSANDS in your family vacation costs!


Ok, now getting back to Disney Vacation Club reviews, I'm going to compare it with Quest Vacation International Club, which is another great vacation club membership that you can consider.


I will break down all the important points here, and hopefully you can have a better picture.


Sounds Good? Lets go and check out the Disney Vacation Club Reviews..!

Eg: You can find plenty of Disney resorts by clicking the Xplore button in the link above, then choose
Zone: North America-USA ,
Region: Florida ,
Area: Orlando Disney

Disney Home Resorts and 500+ resorts worldwide.

How it works Once you have purchased the package, you will be given a login ID, where you can search and book any of the resorts online, depending on availability.

Quest Vacation customer service representatives advices members to book their resorts atleast 6 months ahead during holiday seasons.


Then you will be required to pay the followings upon usage:


A) If you are going to any QVI's Home Resorts, these are the charges

: USD150 per week


B) If you decide to go to any other 3000 QvI's partner Resorts: these are the charges

: USD150 + USD99 per week


You can easily transfer your 2 weeks holiday to the following year if you need to. All you have to do is to pay the USD150 per week usage fees now, and you don't pay anything next year.

Disney will allocate annual points for you depending on the package that you purchase, A minimum of 150 points are required , with each point roughly costing USD120.

After that , you can easily call the Disney Vacation Club sales team and book your favourite resorts.

However every member has a cutoff date to bank 100% of their points that haven't already been used to book trips for your current year.

You pretty much need to figure out how many points you want to use during the year by that date and bank your remaining points to the next year.

If you don't do this, then any points left unused GO AWAY at the end of your year.
