    The dreaded Use Year questions. I have points banked from last use year. My use year resets in Dec. I know I have to bank my 'current' user year points by July 31. However, when do I have to use my banked points by during this calendar year?

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

    While planning Disney Vacation Club vacations is oh-so-fun, with Home Resorts, Vacation Points, Use Years, banking deadlines, and expiration dates, it can definitely get confusing! I must admit that Disney Vacation Club math is the only math that I love, and as someone who refuses to ever let a single Vacation Point go unused, you have come to the right place. I am happy to help you today!

    Since you have a December Use Year, you are currently in your 2021 Use Year. If you banked 2020 Vacation Points into 2021, you have until the end of your 2021 Use Year on November 30, 2022, to use those banked Points before they expire. That means that your travel using these Points must be complete by November 30, 2022. You are correct that your banking deadline is July 31, so, if you will not be using your 2021 Vacation Points by their expiration in November 2022, be sure to bank your Points by July 31, 2022! No Point left behind!

    Did you hear that the Disney Vacation Club Moonlight Magic events are returning this year?! These Member-exclusive complimentary events are my all-time favorite Disney events and are THE ultimate DVC perk! I'll be wishing upon a star that you get to attend one this year, Tim!

    Tim, I hope that this was helpful! I'm wishing you a lifetime of fun Disney math and magical memories with your magical Membership! Please stop by any time with any of your DVC or Disney vacation planning questions.

    I hope to see ya real soon,
