DVC Buying Process

Below is an estimated timeline for the closing process.  Please keep this handy for a reference guide throughout the process.

  • Closing takes an estimated 10-12 weeks
  • Hilton Head, Aulani and Grand Californian may take an additional  2-4 weeks as these are attorney states and not closed by a title company.
  • The title Company will send the contract to Disney.  Disney has 30 days to review.
  • Once it comes back from ROFR we have to wait on Disney to  send the waiver before the closing documents can be prepared.  This is sent US Postal service and can take 3-4 weeks after ROFR.
  • The title company sends out the closing documents, normally within 72 hours of receiving the waiver.
  • After ALL closing documents from the buyer and seller are received back, the final Point Activity Summary is ordered from Disney,  (3-5) business days. This stops all direct drafts for payments & dues for the seller.
  • The deed is then sent to the county for recording  this takes up to 72 hours if no holidays or weekends.
  • Once it is recorded the deed is sent back to the title company.  The title company sends it overnight to Disney.
  • Disney then has 3-4 weeks to upload your information and send your membership letter.  When you get the letter you will call them for an activation code.  If you are a current member the points will show up on your Dashboard in 10-14 business days.
  •  The sellers funds will be mailed 10-14 business days after Disney receives the recorded documents.  This allows sufficient time for property transfer.
