The new 2003 DVC point charts on available on the DVC Point Chart Index page!  Also, a MousePlanet reader provided a new financial analysis of DVC ownership that's well worth reading!

There's also copies of press releases of the newest DVC resorts being built or in the planning stages that you may want to read!


Time shares, or vacation ownership, is hardly a new idea.  People have been buying and selling time share resort properties all over the world for many years now.  In fact, many of the largest and most prosperous time share companies are located right in central Florida...in the back yard of Walt Disney World.

The Disney Vacation Club is Disney's attempt to fight back against these successful competitors.   It's not really a pure "time share" in which you own a portion of your vacation property.  Instead, it's a lease of that property that has an expiration date.  It's really more of a pre-paid vacation plan than anything else.

On these pages, I've done my best to document the Disney Vacation Club and it's program.  If you vacation frequently -- especially if you vacation frequently at Walt Disney World -- this is a program you really should consider.  On the other hand, if you're an infrequent (every few years or so) guest at WDW, you're not going to find the DVC a great bargain.
