When you purchase a DVC membership, you are purchasing Disney Vacation Club points, which can be used like currency to reserve accommodations at any Disney resort. The DVC points system is more flexible than traditional timeshare ownership, because you can book during any week of the year, at any resort, in any size unit as long as you have enough points to cover your stay.
Booking with Disney Vacation Club Points
The number of points required to book at any DVC resort depends on several factors including the resort, the season, the size of the unit, and the length of your stay. Larger units and more popular weeks will increase the number of points required to book accommodations.
Points are awarded to members annually at the start of each use year through the end of the contract. For DVC owners, the use year does not necessarily line up with the start of a calendar year. Instead, the use year starts in whichever month your points become available for use.

Buying DVC Points on the Resale Market
When you buy directly from Disney, the minimum number of points you need to buy to qualify for membership is 160, while the maximum is 2,000. Smaller groups of points can be purchased on the resale market, however, you will need at least 150 total points to qualify as an active DVC member.
However, when you buy DVC points on the resale market, you are essentially buying someone else’s membership. They will already have an established amount of yearly points, along with a home resort. In other words, if you buy from the resale market, you won’t have to worry about purchasing a minimum amount.
