    Are banked points used first when making a reservation?

    Hey There, Hi There, Ho There, Christine!

    You are as welcome as can be here at planDisney.  I am so glad you stopped by to ask your question because I just love helping my fellow Disney Vacation Club neighbors.  Christine, don't you just love the flexibility of Disney Vacation Club? Being able to bank and borrow Vacation Points really allows you to maximize the magic of your Membership. We have definitely taken advantage of this on many occasions, and it has opened a whole new world of vacation possibilities for our family.

    Christine, when you have banked Vacation Points, you have the option to use them first. Whether you use the Disney Vacation Club website to book your Disney Vacation Club Resort or contact Member Services, you will be asked if you would like to use your banked Vacation Points. The system won't automatically do it for you, but it will guide you with prompts to use your Vacation Points in the most logical way (which typically means using your banked Vacation Points first.) 

    Now, if you have multiple Disney Vacation Club contracts like my parents do, and you have banked points from more than one of these contracts, you will be asked WHICH banked points you want to use first, second, etc.  If you don't want to use your banked points for any reason, you have the option of not using them and booking with your current Use Year Vacation Points instead. 

    If you have any questions when trying to book your next Disney Vacation Club Resorts with using banked, current Use Year, or borrowed Vacation Points, Member Services can definitely help you.  This way, you will be sure to use your Membership in the way that works best for your family.

    I hope this is helpful for you, Christine. If you have any more Disney Vacation Club or Disney planning questions, stop back and see me here. I'll be most happy to help you!

    See ya real soon!
