Member Late Fees and lnterest - All delinquent Annual Dues payments are subject to a late fee of $25 per Ownership Interest, plus interest at the maximum rate permitted by law (currently 18 percent) accrued on the amount outstanding from the original due date.

Breakage Income - As stated in the Condominium Documents, Disney Vacation Club Management Corp. ("DVCMC) rents, during the Breakage Period, certain accommodations that have not been reserved by Members. The Association is entitled to receive, as breakage income, the proceeds of such rentals not to exceed 2.5 percent of the aggregate of the Condominium Operating Budget (total operating expenses less the sum of interest income and Member late fees and interest) and Capital Reserve Budget in each calendar year.

Developer Subsidy - In an effort to afford all existing Owners and current Purchasers with a fair and equitable dues assessment, Disney Vacation Development, Inc. ("DVD"), has agreed to subsidize the estimated Annual Operating Budget. DVD does not make any commitment that it will add additional phases to the Condominium or that it will elect to subsidize the Annual Operating Budget in future budget years. The obligation of DVD to provide this subsidy is a matter of private contract among DVD, current Purchasers and the Association (as to existing Owners). DVD reserves the right to discontinue offering this subsidized operating assessment in the future.

 

The Member Operating Assessment is equal to the total Cost Components LESS the Revenue Components.

The Total Dues Assessment is equal to the Member Operating Assessment plus Capital Reserves contributions (for funding of long-term projects such as roof replacement, exterior painting, room refurbishment, etc.) and Ad Valorem Taxes (property taxes assessed by the county.)

Note subscipt "(s)" indicates dues partially subsidized by developer

Annual Dues are collected to fund the operating costs of the resort. DVC owners pay for the costs of nearly all resort amenities including front desk Cast Member salaries and benefits, theme park transportation and even Property Taxes. Another component of the dues goes toward a Reserve Fund which is used to pay for long-term projects such as roof replacement, parking lot and road repaving and even wholesale room refurbishments.

Complete details of the DVC Resort Budgets can be found HERE.

Given the inflationary nature of the economy, dues should be expected to rise at a rate of 3-5% per year. Cast Member salaries and benefits represent approximately 75% of the operational costs built into the dues, and they are constantly on the rise.  Fuel prices, insurance rates and property taxes also play a large role in the total cost.

While the compounding impact of 3-5% increase over an extended period of time will be significant, simiar increases should be expected in rates for Disney cash resorts. Room rates constantly increase, often at a rate of 5-8% per year.
