* 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. Resale contracts purchased at the 14 other Disney Vacation Club Resorts opened prior to Disney’s Riviera Resort will only be able to exchange into those 14 Resorts but not into Disney’s Riviera Resort.
- Members who purchase directly from Disney Vacation Club have the opportunity to use their Vacation Points to stay at all current and potential future Disney Vacation Club Resorts and access additional benefits such as Membership Extras.
