Disney Timeshare? Why Not!

Walt Disney and all that it encompasses; Disneyland, Walt Disney World, Euro Disney, Disney Cruises and all the various Disney Media outlets, has a very simple formula for success. Build it big, make it 100% family friendly, make it colourful and make it themed (of course you have to have a cartoon mouse). The results speak themselves, if you build, they will come! Disney timeshare falls right in line like a good soldier.




The Disney Timeshare program is called “Disney Vacation Club”. The Program consists of eight high-end condo style resorts. When it comes to deciding on where to built you multi-million dollar vacation ownership complex, picking a location is probably the most important decision you have to make. So, it is no surprise that when Disney decided to jump into the timeshare market in the late nineties, they took this decision very seriously. After about 7 seconds of deliberation, some genius decided the state the obvious. Orlando Timeshare Developers have been selling millions of unit for years based on the premise that their resort was inclose proximity to WALT DISNEY WORLD. Disney, being very good at just about everything, decided to build seven of their eight timeshare resorts within close proximity to the center of the Timeshare universe, Orlando Florida. With the only exception being Disney’s Hilton Head Island Resort, I guess that they finally conceded the point there might be someone, somewhere in the developed world who might want to go somewhere besides the Magic Kingdom for vacation.

Disney’s Hilton Head Island Resort

This is the only Timeshare resort in the Disney Vacation Club portfolio that is not located in the orbit of the Magic Kingdom. It is located on a secluded 15 acre private island in Hilton Head South Carolina. This is one of the earlier timeshare resorts produced by Disney, opening its doors in the spring of 1996. It is it themed to pay tribute to an past generation, hunting or fishing lodge. Although it is far more elaborate than any lodge I have ever spent time in. The rooms are large, immaculately clean and contain full kitchens and beautiful balconies. Although there is not a full service restaurant on the grounds, there are several places to grab a bite and there is never a shortage of things to do, swimming pool & pool games, crabbing, art, bicycing, kayaking and the Hilton Head staple, tennis.
