    How do you create a DVC online account if you purchased in 2005 and don’t have an activation code to input with your member Id?

    Hey howdy hey, Catherine!

    Welcome Home and thanks so much for stopping by planDisney, Catherine!  You are correct that you will want to have an online login for your Disney Vacation Club Membership, as it helps so much to be able to see all of your Vacation Points, Points Charts, and have the world of possibilities right at your fingertips.  You will also need to log in to create your Digital Member Card so that you can enjoy all of your eligible Member Benefits and discounts when visiting Disney Destinations.

    There is definitely a way to create an online account for your Membership.  I have been a Member for over 20 years, and I have one.  

    I called Disney Vacation Club Member Services for you, Catherine, and my helpful Cast Member friend told me that in order for you to create your online account, you will need to first call Member Services to confirm they have all of your up-to-date account information. From there, they can walk you through setting up your account or be sure you get the information you need to set it up so you can take advantage of the online account access.  

    I find the Disney Vacation Club website so helpful and easy to use. From seeing how many Vacation Points I have to make a booking or even making a Waitlist Reservation, I love being able to manage this on my own at a time that works best for me. I can also quickly see all of the Points Charts anytime, anywhere, without having to unearth a hard copy at home as I used to do.  I also love searching for my favorite Member Benefits and discounts, as they add so much value to our Membership.

    I hope this helps you get the information you need, Catherine. If you have any further Disney Vacation Club questions, or Disney vacation planning questions, stop back and see me here. I'll be most happy to help you out.

    See ya real soon!
