Update on resale restrictions

Written by Tim Krasniewski on . Posted in Policies & Procedures News


On January 18 Disney Vacation Club announced pending limitations to buyers who purchase their ownership interests via the secondary market.  Since that initial announcement there have been clarifications on a couple aspects of these changes.

The policy change prohibits future resale buyers from booking any destinations in the Disney Collection, Adventurer Collection and Concierge Collection.  Initial information received from DVC indicated that resale purchases must close by March 20, 2011 in order to still qualify for these destinations.  DVC has since relaxed their stance and will now allow bookings in the Disney, Adventurer and Concierge Collections by all contracts which are submitted to DVC through March 20.

Resale contracts submitted March 21, 2011 and after will not be eligible for booking the above named Member Getaways.

The second clarification relates to so called gratuitious transfers in which an ownership change occurs with no monetary compensation.  Examples of this are transfers upon the death of an owner or passing-on ownership to an immediate family member such as a child.

In the event of a gratuitous transfer, the new owner will be provided with all benefits afforded to the original owner.  A contract purchased directly from Disney Vacation Development or a resale purchaced prior to March 21 which is subsequently re-deeded to a qualified family member will remain eligible for all of the DVC Member Getaways.

Im glad they made Clarifications on the effective date.

Right now resale purchasers are kind of at the mercy of DVC in relation to when they decide to review for FROR. With the 20th as the submission date, it is up to the broker to get the contract submitted in time.

I also think this was the right call ethically from the Mouse, and I think it was VERY important to clarify the "gratuitious transfers" part. Not 'grandfathering' that would have been extremely unfair to people in my opinion!!! (Had it gone differently that would have gotten me to write Disney to complain)

I am glad the DVC clarified the gratuitous transfers. I would like to think my heirs have the same rights I have when using my points. Even though we'll probably never use our points for anything other than a DVC state. It doesn't mean a niece or nephew won't feel differently.

Yeah the "gratuitious transfers" concern was there for us as well... we have every intention of leaving our DVC to our children someday to pass on the Disney "Baton".
