Estimated Timeline For DVC Resales

Once you have an accepted offer and the contract has been executed, the processing/closing process begins.

Closing takes an estimated 10-12 weeks with most home resorts, but Hilton Head, Aulani and Grand Californian may take an additional 2-4 weeks to complete.

Right of First Refusal (ROFR)

  • The title company will send the contract to Disney for the Right of First Refusal. Disney generally takes 30 days to review the contract, but can take longer.


  • Once it comes back from ROFR we have to wait on Disney to send the estoppel before the closing documents can be prepared.  This takes 2-4 weeks after ROFR.

Closing Documents

  • The title company sends out the closing documents normally within 72 hours of receiving the estoppel.

Final Point Activity Summary

  • After ALL closing documents from the buyer and seller, are received back the final Point Activity Summary is ordered from Disney  (3-7) business days.


  • 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 title company sends it to overnight to Disney.

Disney Membership

  • If you are a new member Disney then uploads your information and sends your membership letter. This can take 2-4 weeks.  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 normally in 10-14 business days.

 Seller’s Funds Dispersed

  • The sellers funds will be mailed 10-14 business days after Disney completes the transfer of the contract information from seller to buyer.  Once completed they will notify the title company and funds are released at that time.
