What happens when the contract ends?

I was reading a thread and noticed several people made references to avoiding the resorts that the contract is over sooner than others if the buyers are young. I am 30 and DB 33 and we are considering buying DVC. Can you tell me what resorts have the longest contracts currently? Also, what exactly happens when the contract runs out for those who purchase at that resort? Thanks!

When a DVC contract ends, membership ends and you no longer are allowed to make DVC reservations based on that contract. If you own at another resort you still maintain a DVC membership but you no longer can use the points for the resort who's contract has expired.

There was a recent thread about this subject. I would suggest you do a search for it as there was several comments posted.

While nobody knows what Disney will do at that point, those making investment decisions today should assume that they have nothing at the end of the contract.

onsite at wdw, BLT goes to 2060, AKV goes to 2057 and SSR goes to 2054. some OKW contracts were extended to 2057 (all direct OKW contracts but only a few resale OKW contracts).

VGF will probably last 50 years if recent history continues.

the property reverts to disney's ownership. i will own nothing and owe nothing further to disney in terms of maintenance fees.

edited to add: it's worth noting that most people will not own for the entire life of the contract. as kids age, lifestyles change, big life events turn you in a different direction...you probably will find yourself selling well in advance of even 2042 (the end date for most DVC resorts)...

here are a couple of recent threads:

Well, at 80 years old, I will have gotten my fill of Disney and it will be time for my son, then 46 to determine if he wants to continue on the Disney tradition, of course depending on what the future brings and that no one knows! I had the opportunity to extend another 15 years but declined, Disney can have it back in 2042!

Of course as I beg & borrow points every year, my contract will end sooner than the actual deadline!

VWL, BCV, BWV, Hilton Head and Vero Beach, and older OKW contracts expire January 31, 2042. It is those that should create real second thoughts about purchasing for a new purchaser that is only 30 or in early 30s because contract will expire when you are in late 50s or early 60s and (a) there is no assurance any extension will ever be offered, and (b) there is definitely no assurance that if one is offered you will want to pay the exorbitant price Disney will be charging for it. What I can tell you from experience is this. When you do reach your late 50s and 60s and kids have departed from home, you will likely find yourself using your points to go to WDW more often than you ever did before and thus by purchasing one of those resorts you may giving that up.

No one but Disney knows their future.

Will owners still be going to Disney after years and years of ownership?

Will Disney tear down the buildings because they need the land for something else?

Will they tear down the buildings and rebuild new resorts?

Will Disney still be Disney or will someone buy them?

Will someone buy the resorts from Disney?

Almost anything can happen.

Bill

It doesn't matter what Disney does. The contract between you and Disney ends on the termination date.

Think of it like renting an apartment and using a lease. When the lease expires neither party has any claims against the other. If they apartment owner (in this case Disney) wants to make you an offer to continue with a new lease, that is totally their option.

To me the more interesting questions are whether they will offer extensions at other resorts (and the details) and HOW it will end. The simple fact is there are not enough villas to accommodate all the points the last couple of years thus not everyone will be able to use points in the last couple of years. It's also likely that other changes will occur as well including limitations or cessation of banking, transfers, cash exchange options, etc.

How can that be? DVD can't "oversell" a resort. I'm not getting what you're saying here.

I've always wondered about this possibility. Some of the resorts are stand-alone, such as HHI, AUL, OKW, VB, and SSR. Others are part of an existing resort. At VGC, where we own, you turn left and you're in DVC, turn right and it is the GCH. In fact, if I recall correctly, a couple of the GCH rooms exist between DVC villas. Although you can sell whatever you want to sell, it would seem a problem to sell the villas and not the hotel. What if the new owners don't keep up the rooms of the villas. Wouldn't that reflect on the hotel?

Another question is how many resorts can Disney build? What happens when every single deluxe resort has a DVC component? Do they start building at the moderate resorts with a different price model? It seems the big money is in the sales of the villas, not in the maintenance. Will Disney be bored of just the maintenance and sell that off?

Time will tell.

the last year (2041) will feature everyone but the feb UYs getting their pts with less than 12 months to use them. a dec UY will get their pts on dec 1, 2041 and need to complete a stay by jan 31, 2042.

it does no good to say those thousands of members can just borrow the pts back to 2040...that still creates something of a traffic jam with more pts than usual being borrowed to try to squeeze some usage in before things shut down.

so for normal usage, they haven't oversold the resorts. but that last year presents some interesting logistical choices...

Think about it. Just look at 2041. There are 8 UY months. Clearly there are not enough Villa's to accommodate all the points in the last year. Now think back to the first year of say OKW where there were there were Use Years that did not come into play for up to 10 months and thus those owners usage was shifted into the future. There are ways to handle this issue but I thought I'd reserve and only discuss if others so chose, I don't know how DVC will handle it and while I'm sure they've discussed it, I doubt they have a final decision in place but should have by around 10 years out.

DVC can't sell the resorts utiti they revert to Disney at the end of the RTU. What they can do is sell the management and any owned inventory. They could do this resort by resort or the entire system.

Ok, I see what you're saying. Well, if you have a Dec UY, when you get your final set of points, don't they have to allow you your full use year? So if the contract expires in 2042 and you have a Dec UY, aren't they contractually obligated to give you until Nov 2043 to use your points? Then you won't have the issue where you are trying to squeeze all of the Dec UY people in one month.
