    Does disney vacation club membership include park tickets?

    Hello Zach, and welcome to planDisney!

    Can you believe Disney Vacation Club just celebrated its 30th Anniversary? It’s hard to believe it has been around that long. Some Members have been with Disney Vacation Club since the beginning, and back in the 1990’s Walt Disney World Theme Park Tickets were included not as part of Membership, but as a limited-time perk.

    Sadly, that perk ended back during the twentieth century. Currently, Disney Vacation Club Members do not receive complimentary tickets. There are however many benefits and perks for Members! These Membership extras are not part of your contract, and they can and do change over time. In the past, there have been various special offers for Members on tickets. Currently, Disney Vacation Club Members are eligible to purchase a Disney Sorcerer Pass, which is a discounted Annual Pass only available to DVC Members and Florida residents. While there are select blackout dates associated with this pass, the savings may be worth it if you aren’t visiting over the holidays.

    Members also currently receive discounts on select dining, merchandise, and even water park tickets. There are Member events throughout the year, Member merchandise, previews, and other perks for Disney Vacation Club Members! Members also have their own lounge at Epcot where you can take a break, recharge your devices (and yourself), and get a cool drink. Again, while none of these perks are technically part of your contract as a Member, and you shouldn’t become a Member based on perks, they are a fun bonus to Membership! Check out the Membership Benefits page to see what is currently being offered to Members.

    As a Disney Vacation Club Member family for more than a decade, we have taken advantage of many of these perks, and they’ve only increased our appreciation of our Membership. But the main reason we became Disney Vacation Club Members was the ability to stay at amazing Disney Deluxe Villa Resorts at a more affordable price-point. My kids have been raised on Disney, and I’m proud to say that even the teenage boys still love going and look forward to every trip! And our Membership is just beginning, this mom is already thinking about adults-only vacations as empty nesters, and maybe someday bringing the grandkids? We still have many more years of magical vacations to enjoy.

    Zach, please let me know if you have any additional questions about Disney Vacation Club, or about becoming a Member. If you can’t tell, it is one of my favorite topics, and we are here to help!

    Wishing you Membership Magic!
