DVC Resale Average Sales Prices for January 2020

Disney's Grand Floridian pool view

This article features the average sales price of contracts categorized by resort and month sold for January 2019 through January 2020 by DVC Resale Market (DVCRM). Our goal for this article is to provide great directional information for anyone considering a Disney Vacation Club (DVC) resale purchase or just wanting to satisfy a general curiosity of prices and trends.

Keep in mind that the price of a resort can still easily vary based on the size of the contract in points, the current point availability of the contract (i.e., points current, banked and borrowed) as well as other various factors (i.e., extended Old Key West contract, subsidized dues contracts, etc.). For example, contracts that are smaller and have higher point availability tend to sell for more than the average price per point and vice versa.

The 4 Categories of WDW Resort Resale Prices

From the graph of the rolling year of Walt Disney World (WDW) Resort Resale prices below, 8 out of 10 resorts shown fit into one of two groups. Those groups include the WDW resorts that have been reselling in the low 100s and the mid 100s. Only the Boardwalk and Grand Floridian at WDW don’t fit into one of those two groups. A summary of all four categories is below.

  1. The low 100s per point (approximately $100 to $110 per point): Animal Kingdom, Boulder Ridge, Old Key West and Saratoga Springs. This group includes resorts that are not surprisingly directly next to a theme park, have shorter to mid range expiration dates and with the exception of Boulder Ridge are larger.
  2. The low to mid 100s per point (approximately $125 to $135 per point): Boardwalk. The Boardwalk may not have the Stormalong Bay pool like its neighbor the Beach Club, and it may also have a shorter deed expiration date, but it remains an exceptional location with a diverse choice of restaurants and a lively atmosphere. All things considered it has enough positives to raise its price above the lowest of the WDW properties but not quite enough to be in the upper tier of WDW resale pricing.
  3. The mid 100s per point (approximately $140 to $160 per point): Bay Lake Tower, Beach Club, Copper Creek and Polynesian. This group includes resorts that have longer end dates, with the exception of Beach Club, and for the most part have close proximity to a theme park.
  4. The upper 100s per point (approximately $160 to $180 per point): Grand Floridian. For those that love the style and theming of Grand Floridian there is really nothing not to like, and for those that prefer other styles than the Grand Floridian, there is still a lot to like. Grand Floridian has a great location, diverse DVC room mix and a long expiration date on the deed.
