As we all wait in anticipation for the grand opening of Disney’s brand new resort, the Riviera, many families have already purchased points! Opening in December of this year, our source tells us the Riviera Resort is starting at $220 per point when purchased directly from DVC.
Say what?! You can finance a timeshare? Most people might not expect to easily get financing on a timeshare, but this is actually a misconception. You might receive advice that you shouldn’t purchase any vacation ownership unless you can pay for it in full, but if we were to take a step back and ask how many other assets we finance to have a better quality of life, you’d need more than two hands!
In this blog series, we’ll discuss the perks and characteristics of each major vacation ownership brand. Getting to know all the benefits of vacation ownership is the first step in your vacation journey. This time around – let’s learn about Wyndham Vacation Club, the largest vacation ownership club in the world.
When people hear the word "timeshare," they don't usually picture flexibility, luxury, or experiencing new and unique cultural destinations year after year. Vacation Ownership of the 21st Century is just that - an opportunity for couples, families and friends to travel the world, staying in spacious suites for a lot less than hotels. Recent trends have proven our suspicions: the fastest rising consumer generation segment when it comes to top spend in travel and leisure is... drumroll please... the millennials!

This week I took a field trip with my "work husband" and signed up for a Disney Vacation Club timeshare presentation tour. DVC (as the savants call it) has become quite the game changer! From their no-pressure sales tactics, to their unique take on a points based membership, they have revolutionized the timeshare industry for today's family vacationers. I may have just went on the tour out of curiosity, but to be honest they really spell it out in a way that makes owning a DVC timeshare a no-brainer.

Disney Vacation Club is not inexpensive. Few, if any, products of such caliber are. Between the initial cost, annual dues, and travel expenses, DVC members will easily end up spending tens of thousands of dollars over the course of ownership. More than anything though, it is the initial purchase price that seems to concern prospective members. It's a valid concern, especially considering the rapidly depreciating value of many non-Disney vacation ownership properties. However, after extensive research, we were surprised to discover that not only do DVC points generally retain their value, points at some resorts have actually appreciated over time!
