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's Polynesian Villas & Bungalows
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%|
|Bay Lake Tower||$5.6223||$5.9226||+5.34%|
|Beach Club Villas||$6.2715||$6.4430||+2.73%|
|Copper Creek Villas||$7.3336||$7.2625||- 0.97%|
|Old Key West||$6.4073||$6.7245||+4.95%|
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%.
