Known as Disney Vacation Club, or DVC for short, Disney timeshares allow Disney lovers and families the ability to own a piece of their favorite resort with priority access to make reservations.
When you buy a Disney timeshare, you select one of the resorts as your “Home resort,” which is the property where your ownership deed is.

Disney Vacation Club works by offering points-based ownership, meaning owners receive an annual allotment of points that they can spend like vacation currency.
Every owner is assigned a “Use Year” when purchasing their DVC points. Despite what you may think, DVC Use Year refers to a month, not a year. Your Use Year (UY) is the month in which you receive your annual allotment of points. There are eight Use Years to consider: February, March, April, June, August, September, October, and December.
Disney timeshare owners can make reservations up to 11 months before check-in at their Home resort. That's why taking the time to choose your Home resort is so important!
