2|P a g e D V C O v e r v i e w
Disney Vacation Club (DVC): Disney Vacation Development, Inc. markets and operates the Disney Vacation Club, which is a points-based vacation ownership and exchange system of timeshare resorts. The first DVC resort opened in late 1991 in Orlando, Florida. Since that date, Disney Vacation Club has grown to become a respected leader in the vacation ownership industry- now offering eleven DVC resorts throughout the United States and boasting more than 350,000 DVC owners! Ownerships are a deeded interest in real estate, and each interest equates to a specific number of Disney Vacation Club points, which are awarded each year on the first day of the anniversary month. These points are used as your vacation currency to book reservations in any DVC resort. Each reservation will require a certain number of points as defined by the published point charts. Disney Vacation Club Management Corp provides property management services to all DVC resorts. At the date of publish, DVC resorts located in Florida, South Carolina, California, and Hawaii and are marketed across the United States, in the United Kingdom, and also in parts of Asia. All DVC related companies are wholly owned by the Walt Disney Company (stock ticker DIS). Other well known brands owned by Disney include Miramax Films, ABC television group, ESPN, Pixar Animation Studios, Muppets Studios, Marvel Comics, and Hyperion Books. Disney is perhaps the most well known brand in the world, and DVC has quickly become one of the fastest growing timeshare programs in the world!
