AKV Price Rising to $112

Disney Vacation Club has sent a mailer to current members informing them of a pending price increase on points at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas.  According to the mailer, on January 15, 2009 the base price will increase from $104 per point to $112 per point.  The new price point will mirror DVC's current sale price for the Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort

At this time there is no firm word on when prices may increase for new members.  In the past, DVC has provided existing members advance notice of price increases as well as a window of time to buy at the lower rate (while new members are being charged the increased price.)

Visit our Pricing & Promotions page for a rundown on current rates and discounts available for new and add-on point purchases.
