How Membership Works

Disney Vacation Club Cast Member explains how Membership works to a couple at the Sales Center

The Vacation Points System

Disney Vacation Club is based on a Vacation Points system. When you become a Member, you'll receive an annual allotment of Vacation Points—based on the size of your real estate interest—to use toward Disney Vacation Club Resort accommodations and thousands of other vacation options in destinations around the globe.

Vacation Points

Here's how it works. 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 is, the more points you receive. Use your points to enjoy vacation days or bigger accommodations. Each year, you'll receive a new allotment of Vacation Points. How you use your Vacation Points is completely up to you.

Here are a few examples of how to use your Vacation Points in 2014 (based on availability):

  • 68 Vacation Points for a Deluxe Studio with a Lake View at The Villas at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, a 3-night weekend getaway in September 2014.
  • 106 Vacation Points for a 1-Bedroom Villa with a Savanna View at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas, 3 nights to celebrate Memorial Day in May 2014.
  • 144 Vacation Points for a 1-Bedroom accommodation in Europe, a week during the Mid Season of 2014 through our World Passport Collection.
  • 164 Vacation Points for a 3-night cruise on the Disney Dream to The Bahamas in a Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom (Category 9), 2 adults in October 2014.
  • 183 Vacation Points for a Deluxe Studio with a Theme Park View at Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort, 1 week in July 2014.
  • 217 Vacation Pointsfor a Deluxe Studio with an Oceanview at Aulani, Disney Vacation Club Villas, Ko Olina, Hawai`i, the week of Christmas 2014.


Enjoy accommodations at Disney Vacation Club Resorts or thousands of other vacation options in destinations around the world. 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 up to 12. The larger the accommodations, the more Vacation Points needed.

Banking & Borrowing Points

To achieve your vacation dreams from year to year, we offer flexibility on how to use your Vacation Points. One way is by "banking" points. Let's say you want to take the family on a really special vacation, like a cruise aboard Disney Cruise Line, but right now you don't have enough Vacation Points. Simply "bank" this year's Vacation Points to combine with next year's points and take that ocean voyage next year. The other way to achieve your vacation is to "borrow" points. You can "borrow" Vacation Points from next year so you can take that ocean voyage this year.

Add On as Your Family Grows

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.

The main reason we joined Disney Vacation Club is to have the ability to take a quality vacation at least once a year and not have to worry about if we have the money... We always know it's going to be a wonderful place.
