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 generally takes approximately 30 days to review for Right of First Refusal (ROFR).
  • 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 estoppel.
  • 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 email. When you receive the email 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 seller’s funds will be sent after Disney completes the transfer of points. This allows sufficient time for property transfer.
