DVC Resale then direct?


#1

I'm thinking about buying DVC and want to get the benefits of buying direct (discounts, Top of the World, etc.) but with the lowest possible cost.

Could I achieve this by buying resale for the bulk of the points I want then buy direct from Disney for a small number of points (maybe 25?). Would this give me the access to discounts that I want?

What is the lowest number of points you can buy directly from Disney if you already own DVC, albeit via resale?


#2

Yes you can. The minimum buy in for existing owners used to be 50 points, but I think at times you can get 25.

TOTWL is a perk for all members though :grinning:

Thank you! You can use TOTWL even if you have just purchased via resale?


#4

Yes, according to others (no first hand experience, we bought direct). I think it takes a while to get your actual card but you can get an e-card to use in the meantime.
