To change the way your name is listed on the Membership, please send a cover letter to Member Administration at the email address below, along with a copy of the official document that changed your name, i.e., Marriage Certificate, Divorce Decree* or Court Order signed by a judge. The cover letter should include the following:
- Contract or Membership Number
- Current Name on the Membership
- The way you wish your new name to be listed
Please email the cover letter and supporting documents to WDW.DVC.Member.Administration@Disney.com
To add a name to the Membership or remove a name from the Membership as an Owner, you will need to work with a title company or an attorney to assist with creating and recording a new deed. The new deed would show the transfer of ownership from the way it is currently titled into the way you want it to be titled. The fees associated with the changes are based upon the company you choose to work with. No fees are charged by Disney.
If you own multiple contracts and are not updating all contracts to be titled the same, a separate Member ID number will be created for the updated contract(s). Please note that all mortgages and annual dues must be paid in full in order for the transfer to be completed.
Disney recommends working with the following companies:
For Florida and California Properties:
First American Title (866) 237-3777 (or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org )
First American Title (808) 539-7504
For Hilton Head Island:
Burr and Forman Law Offices (843) 785-2171
Once the new deed is recorded, please email a copy to Membership Administration at WDW.DVC.Member.Administration@Disney.com. We will review and update our records accordingly.
*If your name change is due to divorce, you are not required to send the entire Divorce Decree. You may send the first page showing the recording information, the last page(s) showing all signatures and the portion of the Divorce Decree referring to your name change.
