Top 25 Orlando Timeshare Resorts

2016 Sharket Orlando Market Report cover image

Not long ago we published our list of the Top 25 timeshare resorts. That list included resorts across the U.S.A. Today we are releasing our list of the Top 25 Timeshare Resorts in Orlando and we’re also releasing a free report on the Orlando timeshare market.

The Sharket Orlando list ranks resorts in the Orlando travel/hospitality market based on timeshare resale price, resales activity and dollar volume. This is the first time Sharket has prepared a report on a particular travel destination and we believe it is also the first time anyone has published a ranking of all the timeshare resorts in a single destination, based on resales.

In addition to the Top 25 Orlando resorts, Sharket has also published a free, downloadable 47-page report on the Orlando timeshare resale market.

Titled “Orlando Timeshare Resales – Sharket 2016 Market Report,” the report includes the Top 25 list and provides a detailed look at each of the 25 resorts including typical resale prices as well as analysis and observations about the overall Orlando timeshare resales market. The report also includes a complete ranking of all 90 timeshare resorts in the Orlando area.

“If this ranking and our report show anything, it should make very clear that there is a significant and substantial amount of resale market activity taking place in the Orlando timeshare market,” says Bob Schmidt, Chief Data Officer for Sharket and one of the authors of the report.

Timeshare Resales in Orlando – A $59 Million Market

“Overall, the Orlando market has 90 timeshare resorts and they generate more than 10,500 resale transactions and $59 million in resale volume annually,” says Mr. Schmidt.

By far the bulk of that activity is from the resorts in Sharket’s Top 25 Orlando list. “Our data shows Top 25 Orlando resorts account for 7,400 timeshare resales per year and more than $57 million in resale volume,” Schmidt adds.

All told, the Top 25 Orlando resorts comprise nearly 70% of the resale transactions and 98% of the dollar volume in the Orlando timeshare resale market, according to Sharket’s data.

Timeshare Brands Dominate the Orlando List

With the exception of Worldgate Resort, all of the Top 25 Orlando resorts belong to a resort group or brand.
Among the brands, Disney dominates the Orlando market, taking the top six spots on the list, eight of the top ten and eight of the Top 25.

Altogether, the Disney resorts represent 3,203 resales (43% of the Orlando Top 25 resorts and nearly 30% of the entire Orlando market for timeshare resales) and more than $46 million in resale dollar volume (81% of the Orlando Top 25 volume and 79% of the entire Orlando market resale volume).

Second is Marriott with five resorts in the Orlando Top 25 totaling 750 resales and $3.8 million in resale dollar volume.

Marriott has a total of seven timeshare resorts in the Orlando market. However, the seven, Grande Vista resort clearly dominates with 56% of all Orlando Marriott timeshare resale transactions and 60% of all Orlando Marriott resale dollar volume.

Hilton and Westgate each have three resorts in the Orlando Top 25. Wyndham has two resorts and Diamond, Holiday Inn, and Vacation Village each have one resort on the list.
