One query that frequented my ideas shortly after signing my first Disney Trip Membership contract was – How a lot cash will I be saving with this funding?
Earlier than getting began, I really feel I need to preface this publish with the truth that earlier than DVC, my spouse, Amy, and I allowed ourselves to go to Walt Disney World each two to a few years and stayed at average stage resorts. Primarily based on our earlier spending, I’ve since concluded that I’ll save nothing in the long term and have as a substitute dedicated myself to spending 1000’s of dollars on the Walt Disney World Resort over the subsequent 40 years… you’re welcome Disney stockholders!
Though many on the DISboards have beforehand offered a really detailed strategy to find out the worth of their very own DVC memberships, I’m selecting a extra fundamental and laid again methodology. Right here, we are going to rapidly have a look at the money costs listed by Disney for 3 upcoming journeys my spouse and I’ve deliberate for this 12 months.
Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas – Jambo Home
First is a seven night time keep this June at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas – Jambo Home in one of many resort’s elusive 2-Bed room Lock-Off Villa Worth Lodging. This distinctive DVC room class is basically made up of each a 1-bedroom villa and deluxe studio that had been rebuilt from the lodge’s authentic rooms previous to changing into DVC. Because the sizes are a little bit smaller in comparison with different DVC villas, it is a wonderful deal for 209 trip factors. By combining the worth of each a 1-bedroom worth and studio worth lodging, this keep holds an approximate money worth of $6,651.
Disney’s BoardWalk Villas
Subsequent, we leap to a busier a part of the summer season for a split-stay getaway throughout the 4th of July vacation. This journey begins with two-nights in a Backyard/Pool View Deluxe Studio at Disney’s BoardWalk Villas for 36 trip factors. Whereas this particular room class is unavailable for conventional money reservations, a comparable customary view totals $986 throughout this season. The journey then concludes with three nights in a Customary View Deluxe Studio at Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows for 77 trip factors and a money worth of $1,564.

Our closing scheduled keep of 2019 happens throughout one of many busiest DVC weeks in December, instantly following the Thanksgiving vacation. Whereas now we have a number of waitlisted resorts for this keep that may seemingly by no means see the sunshine of day, our present reservation has us having fun with our residence resort of Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas – Jambo Home for 5 nights in a Savanna View Deluxe Studio for 74 trip factors and a money worth of $2,826.
Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas – December Money Pricing
Totaling over $12,000 in money worth, these resort stays already validate for me why I bought Disney Trip Membership. The rack charges of those resorts (even when mixed with reductions) are steep for the typical client, but DVC makes them attainable. There may be worth in the truth that my spouse and I now have the chance to go to a spot we name residence with such frequency and keep in resort lodging beforehand considered in our desires. Add that to extra DVC reductions on annual passes, eating, merchandise, and extra and I’m glad with the worth and worth being obtained as a member. True, I can’t essentially be saving cash and as a substitute will spend extra whereas vacationing extra. The REAL worth of DVC (and what now we have actually invested in) is the happiness it’ll deliver by guaranteeing us years and years of Disney holidays.
