Posted Thursday, October 12, 2006 9:13 AM | Contributed by Jeff

Disney time shares are coming to the Animal Kingdom, with a plan for 458 units, the company said Wednesday. According to Disney, the time shares will be a mix of new construction and renovated accommodations in part of the Animal Kingdom Lodge. They'll feature African-inspired details and most will offer views of a savannah inhabited by a variety of animals. Units will begin opening in fall 2007.

This is for the Disney Vacation Club. They are not just ordinary timeshares.

honestly, I don't know why anyone would buy a disney time share, they are right to use, not deeded, so the maximum "ownership" length is 20 years, as opposed to lifetime ownership, where the deed can be handed down to family.

Just throwing that out there :)

Gemini's avatar I think it's 50 years, not 20. Saratoga Springs membership ends in 2054.

DVC has advantages over "typical" timeshares. It really depends on your situation. I've done the math and I can see where I would come out ahead.

Disney time shares certainly are deeded

You get them for I think about 50 years and if you die before then you can deed out the rest of the years to your kids.

My gf's parents have one and thats how they explained it to me.

The points can be used at more then just wdw and disneyland.

Heck my gfs parents can even take trips to italy with their points if they want.

Oh yeah, the points can go anywhere, including to Spain, Africa, and many other parents. The deed shares can range from 10, 20, or 50 years.

Major Tom, if they were deeded, they wouldn't have a time limit. Even though it is a long time limit, it is still a right to use contract.
