    I would like to have a different home resort. Can I switch my home resort from Copper Creek to Animal Kingdom

    Hiya, Theresa!

    Welcome to planDisney and Welcome Home!  Don't you just love the unique theming of all of the Disney Vacation Club Resorts?  Being immersed in a different destination at each location is so magical. I always feel transported to a whole new world at every Resort, and it adds to the pixie dust of our Walt Disney World vacations.

    Theresa, my Home Resort is also at Disney's Wilderness Lodge, and it happens to be my favorite Resort. But I have also stayed at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Jambo House, and I love the feeling of relaxing in a safari-style lodge with animals free to roam around all day right outside my balcony. I can certainly understand your interest in making Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas your Home Resort.

    I called Member Services to confirm the answer to your question, Theresa. Because your Home Resort is tied to the specific Resort in which you purchased a Vacation Ownership Interest, which is symbolized by your Vacation Points, it is not possible to switch your Home Resort. The only possibility might be if you were able to purchase into Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas if there was a Vacation Ownership Interest for sale at this Resort.   If you want to sell your Disney's Wilderness Lodge Vacation Club Vacation Ownership Interest and then purchase into a different Resort, there is a resale process for this.  If this is something you would like to pursue, I would recommend contacting Member Services about these options and they can direct you further or connect you with the Sales Team who can advise about your options. 

    I know this isn't what you hoped to hear, Theresa.  Remember that you can book at any Disney Vacation Club Resort that is not your Home Resort beginning seven months from your desired check-in date, so you most certainly can stay at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas even if it isn't your Home Resort.

    If I can help you any further, stop back and see me.  I'm always happy to lend a hand to a fellow DVC neighbor!

    Magically Yours,
