    I am a little confused. So as a resale owner already will I be able to book the 14 DVC resorts as of today. I will not be able to book any new resorts that may open up(Riviera and the Fort Wilderness Resort). Is that correct? TIA

    No, you will also be able to book new resorts. Resale owners after the 19th won't be able to book new resorts.

    I don't think that's correct.

    See this from a site:
    https://www.dvcresalemarket.com/blog/new-dvc-resale-restrictions-and-who-is-most-impacted/

    Basically you only get the restrictions if you purchase AFTER 1/19/19.

    If OP owns a resale contract as of today, they will be grandfathered in- meaning they will not be subject to the restriction and can continue to book in the 14 original properties as well as the new properties coming on line.

    No, that's not correct.

    Since you are a current owner you will be grandfathered in and will be able to book the new resorts as well as the existing resorts. Any new resale purchased starting Jan 19th will not be able to book the new resorts but will still be able to book the existing 14 resorts.

    Direct ==> book anywhere.

    Resale bought prior to Jan 19th, 2019 ==> book anywhere.

    Resale bought after Jan 19th, 2019 at classic 14 resort ==> book only at classic 14 resorts.

    Resale bought after Jan 19th, 2019 at Riviera ==> book at only Riviera or it might be any new resort after Riviera as well, at this point it isn't clear, but I am betting it will be Riviera only.

    Resale Riviera owners will be screwed with very limited availability if they can't trade out anywhere. Direct purchasers of Riviera had better hold it for 50 years cause their resale value will be horrible.

    Doug EMG, that's it in a nutshell. I feel sorry for the buyers of Riviera

    Thanks for all the info. This will definitely hurt all of us if/when we plan to sell. As some people have pointed out, new resale buyers won't be able to book at future resorts, like the Star Wars resort. That really hurts us in the long run.

    I believe the proposed Star Wars resort is a Disney hotel, not DVC.

    Could you imagine the point cost if it were DVC? 65 points for a studio weekday night, or something along those lines I would bet.
    That place is being touted as being more of an experience than a resort.

    if it was a DVC resort, it would cost 1,000 points per night
