View Full Version : Remind me what the rules are regarding long-term stays

05-01-2012, 11:54 AM
Now that we are closing in on our retirement goals, I'm trying to remember what the DVC rules were regarding long-term stays. Specifically:
1. How long can you stay at each resort?
2. How many points can you own at one resort or overall?
3. Is there a limit to the number of weeks you can stay per year?

When we joined (seems so long ago) I asked these questions, but of course retirement seemed so far away I didn't really pay attention.

Not sure there are any limits on your questions #1 and #3. The maximum number of points you can own is 5000 and no more than 2000 at one resort.

There is no maximum stay period either at one resort or overall. However, you cannot use any of your stay to try to create residency in Florida (or any other DVC location). As noted, you can have no more than 5,000 points total and 2,000 at one resort.

A couple of years ago DVC raised the maximum point limits to 4,000 points at one resort and 8,000 points for the entire Vacation Club.

I thought I remembered something about 6 weeks being the limit for a resort stay. Maybe that's just a system limit and you can book B2B reservations.

8000 points, hmm
I think you could spend most of the year in a studio at SSR for that.
