Can you buy into DVC if you're single?

Someone told me you can't buy into DVC if you're single? Is this true?

I was hoping you'd say that...I didn't think Disney would discriminate. I couldn't imagine me being turned away if I won the lottery and wanted to part with thousands of dollars. I will correct my informant.

Thanks

maybe they are referring to the fact that in most if not all timeshare presentations, if you are married or co-habitating with someone, you must bring them.

I actually hate this rule and wonder why it's there at all? I am married but do all our vacation planning. My DH *HATES* wasting his time to to presentations because at the end of the day he doesn't care. I, on the other hand, because I handle our vacation planning and $$$ am interested. With DVC, he came but it was very obvious he wasn't interested and only after assurances that our time spent there would be offset by the time savings of the free FPs At HGVC, in the middle of the pitch they let him stay with the kids in the kids room.

Our DVC is under my name only. Any future TS is in my name only - why does he need to be there?

Sales is all about refuting objections. The number one objection is "I have to talk to my spouse about it". If they eliminate the possibility of that objection up front, they eliminate a very large escape route for you to avoid buying. I think in your particular case when the salesperson sees that your spouse might be more of a hindrance than a help, they allow him to go spend time with the kids.

when i purchased 7 years ago I did it in person at WDW with my 1 year old child (no husband with me). My rep was so freaking condescending and honestly didnt even want to sit down with me after he gave me a brief tour. I had to finally tell him "my husband is not here. I'm going to buy today. If you want this sale then you need to sit down with me right now or I'll go get a new rep" He finally did but i had more problems with him 3 years later while trying to add on. I went ahead and did the new contract with a different rep and i love her!

if you go to a direct presentation, they might want you to bring the spouse along if there is one.

i've never been to a timeshare sales presentation, so that's not an issue (and being single keeps the hard sell guys away when i'm on the vegas strip).

but i'm single and bought DVC (and another timeshare) resale, so it can be done...

Disney will take your money any way they can get it from you. Granted, they probably WANT all families in there, but no - no discrimination whatsoever.

Many other timeshare presentations require you to be married, and both present, to get whatever their special offer or incentive is, but thankfully Disney isn't one of those.

From my experience, DVC at the very least strongly encouraged/suggested that my wife and I both had to attend. I guess it wasn't a formal requirement, but it was made clear that they wanted to schedule this for a time when we would both be there, and would reschedule if we could not. This has nothing to do with wanting to sell to married couples. It is about wanting to make a sale at the end of the presentation, and knowing that most couples won't commit to that kind of purchase without the other one there.

it also gives them a chance to play off the couple's dynamic. if one seems more interested, maybe use that to influence the other to join the party...or even more aggressive techniques by non-disney timeshare sales staff...

but yeah, it does knock out one excuse not to close the deal.
