Best Economical DVC Resort to Purchase: Spring 20174 Comments
At DVC Resale Market we like to keep an economic Disney Vacation Club Resort (DVC) ranking updated for our clients as prices, dues, resorts and Disney can change over time. We started providing this ranking in the Fall of 2014, and this blog represents our 6th in the series.
The chart below will provide a ranking of the Disney Vacation Club resorts in terms of long term value. 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 concerned about economic value.
Since 2014, Saratoga Springs and Bay Lake Tower have consistently remained #1 and #2 respectively on the economic ranking. Since last year, the top 4 DVC resorts remained the same, and only 4 resorts had their rank position change. All of the DVC Resorts were $7.79 per point per year to $10.47 per point per year. For the full details please see the chart below:
|Resort||Avg. Cost Per Pt.||Years Left||Cost Per Pt. Per Year From Price||Dues Per Pt.||Total Cost Per Pt. Per Year||Rank: Fall 2017||Rank: Fall 2016||Rank Change from 2015 to 2016|
|Bay Lake Tower||$117||43||$2.72||$5.62||$8.34||2||2||—|
|Old Key West (Extended)||$81||40||$2.03||$6.41||$8.44||3||3||—|
|Old Key West||$74||25||$2.96||$6.41||$9.37||9||8||-1|

Additionally, this cost per point per year from the chart above can be used to help determine what a member theoretically pays for a Disney Vacation Club Villa. For example, let’s say you purchased an Animal Kingdom contract and were going to stay at Animal Kingdom in a Savanna View studio for one night on a weekday in Magic Season (includes many Spring Breaks and most of the Summer). The amount of points needed for that one night would be 19, and the estimated cost per point per year according to the chart above would be $8.72. So multiply the number of points needed by the cost per point and the result is 19 x $8.72 or $166/night.
