Disney Vacation Club or DVC is Disney’s version of a timeshare. Members have purchased an allotted number of points that they are able to use, bank, or borrow to book vacations throughout the year.

DVC works on a point system so members are not locked into a particular week, hotel or accommodation each year. DVC gives families the flexibility to visit Disney year after year in Deluxe accommodations.

Every year, DVC puts out an updated points chart. The total number of points for a hotel can never change, but they can reallocate the points depending on demand.

What does reallocating the points mean? Hypothetically, a studio may cost 15 points in September in 2020 but is now 17 points in 2021. When this happens another room has to go down in points. So maybe a one bedroom has now gone down in points.

If you visit the DVC website you will see that they share why they kept the seven travel periods. It also states that it will cost more to visit in October and November, where this used to be a less expensive time for points. DVC shares:

Members who wish to travel in most weeks in October and November—and in certain weeks in December—will require more Points than the year before.


After a thorough analysis of Member travel patterns and Resort demand, the 2023 Disney Vacation Club Vacation Points Charts were adjusted to continue to encourage travel throughout the year, with the goal of improving availability for the Membership as a whole.

The 2023 Vacation Points Charts will again feature 7 travel periods with updates to balance demand. Similar to the 2022 reallocation, travel periods with greater demand will require more Points, and travel periods with less demand will require fewer Points. For example, Members can enjoy stays for fewer Points than the year before when traveling during the summer period. On the other hand, Members who wish to travel in most weeks in October and November—and in certain weeks in December—will require more Points than the year before.

The 2023 changes only affect Disney Vacation Club Resorts at Walt Disney World Resort. They do not impact Disney’s Vero Beach Resort, Disney’s Hilton Head Island Resort, The Villas at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa and Aulani, Disney Vacation Club Villas, Ko Olina, Hawaiʻi.

List for all 2023 DVC points charts:

I hate the 7 travel periods! I think points should be the same in all periods and maybe the holidays such as Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas be a bit higher. People will spend their points when they want to go and not dictated by DVC and their choice of when they want us to go.

I haven't followed the chart changes over the years, since we usually visit in September which is always cheap with January. Seems that Christmas will always be high, even going higher? And the popularity of the festivals has made Summer the slow season so now they need to reduce there to get folks going then again?

They reallocate points to "smooth" out member usage, by making it more and less expensive during certain times of the year. One day they might even realize that people are basing how they spend their points based on how cheap their costs are vs "just buying more points". Soon they will discover that having a even amount of points per season will be the most efficient way to get the points spread out over the year. This is a great example of letting the data dictate your actions without even thinking about what it really means and what is happening.
