Villas at Disneyland Hotel DVC Resale Restrictions
The original 14 Disney Vacation Club resorts are the only resorts where resale owners can exchange their points to stay at other resorts. If you buy off the resale market at Disney’s Riviera Resort at Walt Disney World you can only stay there. Similar to Disney’s Riviera Resort, the Villas at Disneyland Hotel follows these restrictions unless you purchase directly from Disney. (There is a minimum of 150 vacation points required.)
If I Own a Disney Vacation Club Resale, Can I Use My Points at Villas at Disneyland Hotel?
In simple terms, no. If you have bought all of your points off of the resale market, you can not stay at Villas at Disneyland Hotel. If you own all direct or buy a minimum of 150 points directly from DVC, then you can trade to stay at Villas at Disneyland Hotel. For example, DVC members who own at Grand Floridian in Walt Disney World off the resale market can’t trade to stay at Villas at Disneyland Hotel. On the other hand, owners who have purchased their Grand Floridian timeshare directly from Disney Vacation Club can trade Villas at Disneyland Hotel.
