How To Use DVC Floor Plans For Vacation Planning

Whether you’re planning your next Disney vacation by using your DVC membership, or simply booking a DVC rental, knowing the specific room size and layout that will work best for your family can be a huge help in determining the exact reservation to book. In this article, we’ll be covering how you can use DVC floor plans for vacation planning.

DVC Resort Floor Plans

We’ve added links to each of the DVC floor plan pages below. You can click the DVC Resort Floor Plans section below to expand it and see a list of all DVC resorts. Once you’ve expanded the floor plans, you can select the resort you wish to travel to, then select the room size you wish to preview. You will be able to see all of the available villas sizes and configurations to determine which room size or layout would best serve your vacation needs.

Using DVC Floor Plans for Vacation Planning

The main factors for determining the details of your Disney vacation would be:

  • DVC Resort
  • Season (time of year the booking will occur)
  • View Type (if applicable)
  • Unit Size

DVC floor plans will not help you determine the season (time of the year you wish to travel) or the view type (some unit sizes offer multiple view types that are not shown in the floor plan graphic), but they can help inform other aspects of the reservation including which resort offers the unit size and layout you wish to book, the unit sizes available at that resort, and how many guests each particular unit size can accommodate. 

For example, if you know your party size is very large, or that you will be traveling with 2 or more families in one unit, you may choose to gravitate towards resorts that offer a 3 bedroom villa unit size. This could completely exclude a resort like Disney’s Polynesian Villas, as they offer only studios and bungalows (a 2 bedroom unit size).

Once you have chosen the unit size and layout that best fits your needs, you can turn to using points charts to help you determine the remaining aspects of your reservation.

Using DVC Floor Plans with DVC Points Charts

When you combine the floor plans with the DVC points charts, you can get an accurate reading on all aspects of your reservation. Points charts help you see the view type each unit size offers, they help you determine which season you will be traveling in, as well as how many points it would take to make your reservation.

Consult With A DVC Expert
