DVC

If you haven’t read any of my previous DVC posts, DVC is short for Disney Vacation Club. It is a timeshare run by Disney. Unlike other timeshares DVC has the flexibility of a point system.

You can book the time of year you travel and type of accommodation, including your resort of choice. With this style of timeshare you are not stuck in a particular week every year. You purchase an allotment of points that you can then choose to spend however you would like.

I love the flexibility of my membership. We are able to book different hotels and accommodations every trip! For even more information about what Disney Vacation Club is, read HERE.

We shared that DVC card would be going digital this year as ALL physical cards were set to expire December 31, 2021. All DVC shared was that the new cards would be DIGITAL.

Wondering how to find your new Membership card? Here is what you will need to do.

First, you’ll need the latest version of the My Disney Experience app on your mobile device. Open the My Disney Experience app and sign in using your Disney account credentials.

Select the “Menu” icon and then select “Disney MagicMobile”. Select “Set Up Your Pass” to create a Disney MagicMobile pass—which will include your Membership Card, Disney Vacation Club affiliation, tickets, reservations and other entitlements.

Choose from a variety of pass styles—including a design exclusively for Disney Vacation Club Members—then select “Add to Wallet” and confirm your selection. Finally, check to see that your Disney MagicMobile pass has loaded into the digital wallet on your smartphone.

Anytime you are in a Disney location, show your Disney MagicMobile pass. This will have your Membership Card. It will give you discounts and other member benefits.

  1. I hate the new digital membership card! Disney wants everything to be on your phone but I enjoy going to Disney to have a good time and that does not include living on my phone! Doubt that I will renew my AP as not planning on going to the Parks much as hate always having to be on your phone. I may visit for the pool and a nice dinner. It is too much work to go to the Parks any more.
    Disney wants everything using technology and so much of the time Disney tech does not work.

  2. If Disney (Chepak) cuts all the benefits, then we really don’t need the membership card at all (though I still have the original multicolored one and the blue card).

    I rather have the card instead of using my phone for everything. I do not appreciate Disney forcing DVC members to change (the past 30 years when the card was fine) just because their computer system can not quickly determine if one’s membership is valid.

    I suspect DVC will need to do all their own housekeeping next (and somehow we’ll still get a big maintainance cost increase).
