    Sheryl from NJ Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    I booked a vacation in August with banked points, can I modify/ change the dates of the reservation to December. My use year is February.

    Welcome home, Sheryl! It’s great to see you again in the Disney Vacation Club corner of planDisney. I’m pleased as can be to help a fellow DVC Member, and I’m ready to dig down deeper to find an answer to your excellent question!

    Banking and borrowing your Vacation Points is serious DVC math, and I do a lot of checking and double-checking anytime I want to make or modify a booking. Let’s take a look at the specific details for your dates, including your February Use Year, and break it down!

    If you banked points to your February 2024 Use Year, they must be used between February 1, 2024 and January 31, 2025. Points can only be moved one time, so once they are banked or borrowed into a different Use Year they must be used within that time frame. 

    Sheryl, this means that you should be good to go to change your August 2024 booking so you can instead come “Home” for the holidays at Walt Disney World Resort!  Perhaps the new tower at Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows will be open for the holidays and you’ll be able to enjoy a tropical getaway on the shores of Seven Seas Lagoon….

    You can modify the dates of your reservation online via the DVC Member website, or call the always-helpful folks at Member Services. They can pull up all of the specific details of your Membership and answer any questions you might have. 

    I hope this is just the information you need to plan your practically perfect Disney vacation for this December, Sheryl! Thanks so much for stopping by planDisney again–please don’t hesitate to reach out directly if I can help with any questions related to DVC or Walt Disney World. 

    Stay Magical!
