A DVC memberís Home Resort is the resort in which they have a real estate interest. The main advantage to owning real estate interest in one resort over another is that members are allowed to make reservations at their home resort up to 11 months in advance. For the other resorts it is only 7 months in advance. Any exchanges for accommodations external to the home resort are made to and from a memberís home resort. A memberís home resort also determines the amount of a memberís annual dues (maintenance & taxes).

So how do I decide on a Home Resort?
The resort you should purchase is decided by two factors: Does your family want to stay at a particular Disney Vacation Club property every time you visit Disney and will they be disappointed if you donít? If the answer is yes, then buy where you want to be!! If you want to jump around to the different resorts to get a unique experience each time you visit Disney, then buy the property that best fits your financial and particular vacationing needs.
