    We booked All Star Movies already and have only paid the initial $200. My uncle just offered us about 100 DVC points. Can these be used towards our 5 night stay? If so, how? Thank you!

    Hey There, Denece!

    Welcome to planDisney.  How cool that your uncle has offered to share a little Disney Vacation Club magic with you during your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort visit –– I'd say that makes him not only an uncle, but an official Fairy Godfather!  Since there are a few ways you can put those Vacation Points to good use, let me share some details about your options for your upcoming stay.

    Disney Vacation Club Vacation Points can be used to book reservations at non-DVC Resorts (like Disney's All-Star Movies Resort) through something known as a Disney Collection Exchange.  To see how many Points you would need for this type of stay, you can check out the Points Charts on the Disney Vacation Club Website.  After checking to see if 100 Vacation Points would be enough for your visit, your uncle could begin the booking process for you by calling DVC Member Services at (800) 800-9800.  If you don't have enough Points to book your full reservation, another option would be to modify your existing reservation to include fewer days and have your uncle book the rest of your visit using his Vacation Points.  Just keep in mind that when making a Disney Collection Exchange, there will be a non-refundable $95 transaction fee due at the time the reservation is confirmed.  

    Another option for your visit would be to cancel or modify your existing reservation and use your gifted Vacation Points to book a stay at a Disney Vacation Club Resort.  While this can be done by calling Member Services, your uncle can also quickly check for availability and book a reservation for you online through the Disney Vacation Club booking portal.  Again, if you don't have enough Points to book your full vacation, you might also consider a split-stay –– to do this, your uncle could book a few nights at a DVC Resort and you could modify the dates your current reservation at Disney's All-Star Movies Resort to round out the rest of your nights.  My family loves booking split-stays, even when we use our DVC Points for our entire visit, because switching Resorts almost feels like getting two vacations in one.  And the best part is that Bell Services will be happy to transfer your luggage between Disney Resorts Collection hotels free of charge, making it easy and convenient to switch.  

    Thanks for visiting planDisney, Denece.  I hope this helped to get you the answer you're after, but if you need more information or think of new planning questions as your visit approaches, I hope you'll stop by again!

    Happy Planning,
    Amy
