1 A “Lockoff” 2 Bedroom unit is a combination of a 1 Bedroom unit and a Deluxe Studio that are adjacent to each other and have a locking connecting door. The two units each have their own entrance off the hallway, and can be utilized as separate rooms or as a 2 Bedroom unit as needed. A dedicated 2 Bedroom is similar in floor plan, but will have only a single entrance to the unit. In most cases, a dedicated 2BR will have two queen beds in the adjacent bedroom, while a lockoff will have a queen bed and a pullout sofa. The lockoff will also have a kitchenette in the adjacent bedroom that a dedicated 2BR will not have.
2 Disney’s Riviera Resort is new and rooms are declared into the DVC inventory in groups as contracts are sold. This count is as of October 2019 and will increase over time. Expected final numbers: 38 dedicated studios, 29 dedicated 1BR, 90 dedicated 2BR, 148 lockoff 2BR, 12 grand villas, 24 tower studios.
I understand my DVC contract has an expiration?
Yes. Disney Vacation Club is a form of “leasehold” timeshare. You do not permanently own the real estate interest, but rather have a long term lease. The contract expires on January 31st on the year listed for that resort in the table below.
What exactly will happen with member points in the last year and what becomes of the properties at that time are questions yet to be answered.

1Some owners at Old Key West were offered contract extensions that extended the contract to 2057. Not all owners accepted the offer, so some contracts still expire in 2042.
