Arrow A History of DVC Direct Pricing (1991-present)



The following is a record of the price per point that DVC has charged over the years. This shows the base price and does not take into consideration any incentives that might have been offered.

I'm not trying to show the then current pricing for all DVC resorts. I'm only showing price increases for the resort(s) that DVC was actively marketing at the time.







Resort acronyms for those new to MouseOwners:

AKV - Animal Kingdom Villas
BLT - Bay Lake Tower
PVB - Polynesian Villas & Bungalows
SSR - Saratoga Springs Resort
VGC - Villas at the Grand Californian
VGF - Villas at the Grand Floridian

So in 2039 will it be $545 a point?

When I feel like I am paying too much for AKV resale I am reminded that I love the resale restrictions which dont modify how we vacation but allows me to get cheaper than what it originally sold for today

I think it would be interesting to compare this to the cost of a typical hotel room. I can't help but wonder-the prices per point have more than tripled, but in that same span of time, what's happened to hotel prices? I do know that I remember staying at AKL for $155 a night just before we joined DVC in 2001, and it's more than doubled in the same period of time that the DVC price per point has more than doubled.

Mike, is the Feb 2015 correct?
Isn't VGF $165, with BLT and VGC at $170?

According to Statistica the avg hotel room in the USA in 2001 was $83 and change and today is $121 and change. Of course that is not directly related to disney rooms and is an all encompassing average.

I remember when I initially bought in to VWL in 2001 the promotional material said save up to 70% on future vacations. Now when I see the kiosk they say save up to 50% on future vacations. So I believe that the DVC price hike has been faster than the hotel rooms rate of inflation.

Thanks. I suspected that maybe the DVC price had gone up a little more and you confirmed it. But it's still been a great purchase!

I think this is a valuable info for the same reason as SBL's

When I was doing my DVC research, I actually had to browse DVCNews' Financial News section looking for all Tim Krasniewski's writings about DVC resort pricing updates and/or incentives and compiled the figures on an excel spreadsheet. This along with ROFR threads helps me a lot to understand the resale market better and not easily fooled by resale brokers.

IMO this thread should be a "stickie." Maybe another poll topic?
