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.

Disney Vacation Club has made some changes recently that not all members are happy with. One of the biggest upsets is the soon to be Digital Membership Card.

Another recent change is the updated points chart for 2023. Find DVC’s statement regarding the reallocation of points and the 2023 points chart HERE.

Dear Member,

At Disney Vacation Club, we know how much you enjoy exploring destinations and experiences beyond your Home Resorts. Our team is dedicated to helping you create unforgettable vacation memories around the world. That’s why we’re thrilled to name Interval International as our exclusive new exchange provider for traditional exchanges, effective Jan. 1, 2022.

This new relationship will offer you a broad range of resort experiences, providing flexible and diverse opportunities in amazing locations across Europe, Asia, South America, Australia, as well as destinations closer to home including the United States, Mexico and the Caribbean.

DVC will be using Interval International as their exclusive new exchange provided effective Jan 1, 2022. Confirmed reservations or points deposited to RCI will be honored through 2023.

Through Interval International, you will have access to thousands of resorts including a specially curated portfolio of high-quality properties selected especially for Members. This expanded portfolio includes well-known resorts offered by Marriott, Sheraton, Hyatt and Westin, to name a few.

In the meantime, you can continue to book nightly and weekly exchanges in the traditional exchanges through our current program until Dec. 31, 2021. Additionally, any confirmed reservations or points that have been deposited to RCI will be honored through 2023. If you have confirmed exchanges with RCI, deposited points with RCI or made a booking with RCI using cash, you can always review your activity on the Member website.

We’re excited to continue to provide you and your family with a whole new world of vacation possibilities!

All the best,

I don’t like the new seven vacation categories. More times have higher points. If DVC is making a change you can be sure it will be of benefit to them and not good for DVC members
