Disney Vacation Club is based on a Vacation Points system. As a Member, you receive an annual allotment of Vacation Points—based on the size of your real estate interest—to use toward your vacations at Disney Vacation Club Resorts and any one of more than 500 Member Getaways destinations worldwide when you purchase directly from Disney.
How it works is simple. Your real estate interest in a Disney Vacation Club Resort is represented by a specific amount of Vacation Points. The larger your real estate interest, the more days or bigger the accommodations you can enjoy. And each year, you receive a new allotment of Vacation Points. Of course, how you use your Vacation Points is completely up to you.
Enjoy accommodations at Disney Vacation Club Resorts and other Disney destinations, or at hundreds of locales through our Member Getaways program. Depending on the size of your real estate interest and how you use your Membership, you can take one or several vacations each year. Accommodations at Disney Vacation Club Resorts vary in size from Deluxe Studios for up to 4 people to Grand Villas for groups up to 12. Larger accommodations require more Vacation Points. Smaller ones require less.
The flexibility also applies to how you can use your Vacation Points to achieve your vacation dreams from year to year. Let's say you want to take the family on a really special vacation, like a cruise aboard Disney Cruise Line, and you don't have enough Vacation Points in your current allotment. You can plan ahead and "bank" this year's Vacation Points so you can go on that ocean voyage next year. Or if the trip can't wait, you can "borrow" some of next year's Vacation Points to go this year.
Your Membership can grow with your family's needs. As your family expands and your vacation needs change, you have the freedom to purchase an additional real estate interest. It's a truly flexible system.
Here are just a few examples of how you can use your Vacation Points in 2013 (based on availability):
