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.

Disney Vacation Club owners are obligated to pay annual dues in assocation with their timeshare ownership.  Dues cover the operating costs of the resort (employees, park transportation, housekeeping, utilities, etc.) as well as property taxes and some allocation for long-term repairs and upgrades. 

Following are the proposed figures for the 2018 calendar year:

Resort 2017 Dues 2018 Dues Increase
Animal Kingdom Villas $6.5859 $6.7565 +2.59%
Aulani  $7.0297 $7.5352  +7.19%
Bay Lake Tower $5.6223 $5.9226 +5.34%
Beach Club Villas $6.2715 $6.4430 +2.73%
BoardWalk Villas $6.4725 $6.5496 +1.19%
Boulder Ridge $6.5448 $6.9339 +5.95%
Copper Creek Villas $7.3336 $7.2625 - 0.97%
Grand Californian $5.6070 $5.8828 +4.92%
Grand Floridian $5.8960 $6.1329 +4.02% 
Hilton Head $7.2728 $7.7159  +6.09% 
Old Key West $6.4073 $6.7245 +4.95%
Polynesian $6.1355 $6.2005 +1.06% 
Saratoga Springs $5.6037 $5.8564 +4.51%
Vero Beach $8.1064 $8.5260 +5.18%

New owners at Copper Creek Villas & Cabins will be happy to see that the dues will actually decrease nearly 1% in 2018.  At its debut, Copper Creek's 2017 dues of $7.33 per per point were 12% higher than its sister resort, Boulder Ridge Villas at Disney's Wilderness Lodge.  Between the Copper Creek dues decrease for 2018 and a Boulder Ridge increase, that disparity has narrowed to less than 5%.

Budgets will be formally ratified by the Condo board at the 2017 annual meeting scheduled for Thursday, December 7, 2017.  DVCNews.com will be on-hand reporting live from the Condo Association meeting.

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 :p
