* Important Information About Access to Disney Vacation Club Resorts

  • Effective January 19, 2019, Disney Vacation Club Members who do not acquire their real estate interest directly from the developer will not be able to make Vacation Point reservations at some or all non-Home Resorts.
  • Members who purchase a Resale contract for Disney’s Riviera Resort will only be able to stay at their Home Resort, Disney’s Riviera Resort.
