Please be aware that Disney may close some resort facilities or amenities when they deem it appropriate for either maintenance or renovation. These closures may be minor or extensive. The DVC Rental Store receives no notice of these closures prior to the information being released to the General Public.
Please understand that due to our legal agreements with the member and changing resort availability, the DVC Rental Store is not able to alter or revise your accommodations, resort or travel dates once your reservation has been secured.
Also, be aware that your agreement with your Renting Member ends once you have successfully checked into your resort. Once you have successfully checked in, no compensation will be made by the Renting Member or the DVC Rental Store for issues that arise at the resort during your stay. These include but are not limited to villa location issues, villa condition issues or noise issues. All such issues should be addressed in person with resort management at the front desk. Disney will not usually offer a solution to any issues after you have checked out of your resort.
