    Default DVC releases 2018 Annual Dues projections

    The "Notice of 2017 Annual Meetings" for each Disney Vacation Club resort--which includes budget figures for the coming year--have been posted online by DVC. While most resorts saw some increase in dues, amounts range from a modest 1.07% for owners of Disney's Polynesian Villas & Bungalows to a 7.19% increase for Aulani, Disney Vacation Club Villas.

    It seems like our first two homes - AK and BL - always have over 5% increases. I can understand AK and we were warned about that when we bought it. BL increases always confused me.

    Had the exact same thought - doesn't compute in my mind.

    Copper Creek Villas & Cabins' annual dues amount is actually going DOWN in 2018. It was $7.3336 in 2017 and is projected to be $7.2625 in 2018, a drop of almost 1.0%.

    Also, for those lucky few that have an Aulani deed with subsidized dues, the new 2018 amount will be $5.6644 per point.

    I took a closer look at Bay Lake Tower's proposed budget amounts for 2018. BLT's annual dues is increasing $0.3003 to $5.9226 per point. Most of that increase is in three budget line items:

    Capital Reserves are increasing $0.1078, up 16.49%;

    Administration/Front Desk is increasing $0.0761, up 13.07%;

    and Ad Valorem Taxes are increasing $0.0899, up 5.62%.


    Overall, Operating expenses for BLT are increasing a modest 2.97% in 2018. Housekeeping, which in the past was rising more than other items, is only increasing a meager $0.0104 per point in 2018. Administration/Front Desk, however, accounts for almost three-fourths of the increase in BLT's Operating expenses.

    Does that factor in the over estimation of last years taxes? I think it was only 20-30$ difference but thats like 100$ canadian

    AKV has actually only gone up <3% each of the last three years (1.8% in 2016, 2.7% in 2017, and 2.6% for 2018). Over the past five years (2014-2018) the annual growth rate has averaged 3.6%. BLT on the other hand, has averaged 6.2% since opening in 2011, with all but one year over 5%.

    Good information
    Maybe the Bay Lake increases are higher because of the constant maintenance needed in the stained, nicked rooms. Hopefully the last refurb helped - we haven't used BL for a few years. We gave our points to my BIL last year and he seemed to like the room.

    Location is part of the expense for BLT. I expect when DHS opens all it's new attractions and they start revamping Epcot, the Epcot resorts will suddenly have increased tax assessments. Also opening a separate check in counter and customer service in the BLT lobby really increased the operating costs.
    I also think that DVC made the mistake of using the assessment amount that the county would use figuring the first assessment. The next year the resort was opened 12 months versus 4 month. And then two years later MK began a major overhaul and adding the new Fantasyland.
