    Hi, How do I book Port Orleans using my DVC points?

    Hey there, Steven! Welcome to planDisney and Welcome Home! I'm so glad that you've stopped by with your vacation planning question. I just love chatting Disney with a fellow Disney Vacation Club Member!

    Don't you just love being a DVC Member?! Knowing that your next magical adventure is always just on the horizon and having the flexibility to book an endless combination of pixie-dusted vacations are priceless! I'm so happy to hear that you're planning a vacation to The Most Magical Place on Earth, and as a New Orleans girl, I'm excited to hear that you want to use your Membership to stay at either Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside or French Quarter.  I'm thrilled to help you dig a little deeper into your DVC Membership's potential and help you book your next magical getaway!

    You can book a Disney Collection Exchange destination, such as one of Disney's Port Orleans Resorts, 11 months before your arrival, provided that your travel year's Points Chart has been released. Since your arrival date is in 2023 and the 2023 Points Chart for Port Orleans has not yet been released, you will not be able to book your vacation until the Chart is published. I suggest checking back with the DVC website regularly to find out when the Points Chart will be released. You can, however, start the planning process by checking out the 2022 Points Chart. While the 2023 Chart may not be exactly the same as 2022, it will give you an idea of how many Points you will need. 

    Once the 2023 Points Chart has been released, call DVC Member Services to convert your Vacation Points to Reservation Points, check availability and request your reservation. Just keep in mind that while prices are always subject to change, right now, a $95 transaction fee will be applied once the reservation is confirmed. Also, be aware that the Rule of Four will apply to this type of reservation, which means that the reservation will have to be made before the last four months of your Use Year for travel during that Use Year. Now, you're almost there!

    I hope this was helpful, Steven! I'm sure your fabulous stay at Disney's Port Orleans Resort will be blue skies and sunshine, guaranteed! Laissez les bons temps rouler (Let the good times roll)! Please feel free to stop by any time with any vacation planning or DVC questions you may have along the way. 

    I hope to see ya real soon,
