1991, 20th December
The first property of Disney Vacation Club was known as the Disney Vacation Club Resort and it opened on the 20th of December, 1991 at Walt Disney World. Then the name of this resort was renamed as Disney’s old key west resort.
Later on, Disney registered the plan of its timeshare with the Hawaii state. But they didn’t establish a commercial agreement with Hawaii at the time of its creation. And due to this, Disney was allowed to advertise its timeshare company in the state but was not allowed for sales.

DVC was started as Disney Vacation Development, Inc. on the 17th of January, 1992.
1993, 30th march
On this date, Disney Vacation Development Inc announced the plans of making a 440-unit time-share resort. They decided to make it 95 miles south-east of Walt Disney World in Florida by breaking the ground on July 28, 1994.

Currently, this resort is known as Disney’s Vero Beach Resort. It was opened on October 1, 1995, as the Vacation Club Resort at Vero Beach, Florida.

2007, 3rd October
On 3rd of October, 2007, Disney announced that it would open its latest Disney Vacation Club resort and that too on 21 acres it had purchased in Ko Olina Resort, Honolulu/Oahu. They announced that the building slated to begin in 2008 with completion in 2011.
The resort includes both facilities that provide DVC units and standard hotel rooms for guests of the resort. Furthermore, they also announced that they would complete the remaining paperwork so that the units can be sold in Hawaii. According to updates, the top executives were fired for selling timeshare units of 460 Ko Olina and for this they were deemed unprofitable prices. On August 28, 2011
Hawaii resort opened as Aulani.
2008, 17th September
The first phase of Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas was opened in 2007 at the price of $17,000 for membership. By September 17, 2008, Disney Vacation Development had two new timeshare properties going to be built, that is Bay Lake Tower and Treehouse Villas in Orlando at the existing Disney park hotel. Both were going to open in 2009. The timeshare of Bay lake was expected to open at $18,000.
In the earlies of 2011
According to reports in early 2011, Disney purchased land near National Harbor, Maryland, and a suburb of Washington, D.C. These all lands were purchased for potentially building a resort similar to the three Disney Vacation Club resorts. This time the location of the resort was not at Walt Disney World.
In late November 2011, Disney announced that it had canceled the plan to built the 500 rooms resort hotel at National Harbor.
By 2011, the company announced the firm rule that it would not allow secondary market DVC points, purchasers, to use their points on Disney Cruise Line, Adventures by Disney, or the Concierge Collection luxury hotel group.
However, in April 2016, the Disney vacation development ended the extension of membership extra benefits and this allowed the secondary market purchaser of DVC points.
According to the American Resort Development Association, Disney was among the last major timeshare companies that decided to eliminate these benefits. Meanwhile, in 2019, DVC further announced plans to put restrictions on purchases of resale.
On resale buys made after January 18, 2019, DVC resale contracts bought for the first 14 retreats at Walt Disney World, Disneyland, and 3 independent areas may have the option to utilize their points at those 14 existing hotels and not at the up and coming Riviera and Reflections resorts. Also, resale purchasers at Riviera may be permitted to utilize their focuses at the Riviera resort.
In Mid of 2015
From the starting of mid-2015, DVC began using the progress of no judicial foreclosure forcing auction bidders to be present rather than allowing bid submissions online with the Orange County Clerk of Court’s office.
In May 2016
DVC approved Vacatia for DVC resale, in May 2016. This approval would be in addition to such sales via Fidelity Resales. In May 2016, DVC announced that its new property at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge would be known as Copper Creek Villas & Cabins.
The value of resale suddenly increased at its top and it exists for the Disney timeshare membership.
In 2015, the research company Sharkey time-share market came up with a resale value list that includes a score based on resale volume and prices.
And that saw memberships in Disney Vacation Club locations crowded out the competitors. Some of the company’s timeshares near the top of the list included Saratoga Springs, Bay Lake Tower at the Contemporary, and Animal Kingdom Villa.
