There are plenty of reasons why someone might want to become a member of the Disney Vacation Club.

DVC Welcome Center in Disney Springs

DVC Members get tons of perks like discounts on dining, shopping, and more, early access to new rides and attractions, and of course — being able to vacation at Disney properties using pre-purchased points. Joining Disney Vacation Club is a commitment, though, and a new law may make you think twice about it. 

A new law will allow Disney Vacation Club to remove an owner, purchaser, or guest from the property for inappropriate conduct. House Bill 429 (HB 429) gives timeshare companies the same rights as hotels to ban those staying at their properties who engage in unruly conduct, even if at their “Home Resort,” in Disney’s case. The law explicitly allows timeshare companies — such as DVC — to “take any action, including arrest or removal from the timeshare property, against any purchaser, including a deeded owner, or guest or invitee of such purchaser or owner,” if they behave in conduct deemed inappropriate or in violation of the timeshare agreement.

The relevant text of the law — which went into effect July 1st — can be read here:

“With regard to any timeshare project as defined in s. 509.242(1)(g), the managing entity or manager has all of the rights and remedies of an operator of any public lodging establishment or public food service establishment as set forth in ss. 509.141, 509.142, 509.143, and 509.162 and is entitled to have a law enforcement officer take any action, including arrest or removal from the timeshare property, against any purchaser, including a deeded owner, or guest or invitee of such purchaser or owner who engages in conduct described in s. 509.141, s. 509.142, s. 509.143, or s. 509.162 or conduct in violation of the timeshare instrument.”

Disney Vacation Club

Many guests think of the DVC as Disney’s version of a timeshare. But uniquely, Members are not “locked in” to a particular Disney destination, Resort, style of accommodation, season of travel, or length of stay. Rather, Members utilize a Vacation Points system, offering more flexibility.

Disney Vacation Club Members receive a yearly allotment of Vacation Points based off of “the size of the real estate interest” of their “Home” Disney Vacation Club Resort. Members may then use their Vacation Points to book their vacations.
