    As a DVC member, how do I book a Disneyland hotel room online with my points?

    Welcome to planDisney, Chad!

    Thanks so much for stopping by with your question today. One of my favorite parts of Disney Vacation Club Membership is having the flexibility to use Vacation Points in whatever way works best for our family.  Whether we're staying at a Disney Vacation Club Resort as we explore Walt Disney World, setting sail with Disney Cruise Line, or blasting off to a galaxy far, far away, the magic of Membership can take us there.  Since it sounds like you're thinking of using Points for a Disneyland Hotel stay next spring, let me share a few details about the reservation process to help you along the way.

    When you use your Vacation Points for Disney Destinations outside of the Disney Vacation Club Resorts, including Disneyland Hotel, this is known as a Disney Collection Exchange. However, while the Points Charts for these hotels and experiences are available on the DVC website, you won't be able to book these types of reservations online.  When you're ready to check availability and begin the booking process, you'll need to give Member Services a call at (800) 800-9800, where a Cast Member will be happy to help you get the ball rolling.

    Disney Collection Exchange reservations work a little differently than traditional DVC reservations, so I also want to share a few details that you should keep in mind as you're getting ready to book.  Each Disney Collection Exchange reservation you make will require a non-refundable $95 transaction fee, due at the time your reservation is confirmed.  The booking window for these reservations also falls under the Rule of Four, which means that you won't be able to book an exchange reservation during the last four months of your Use Year if you'll be traveling during that same year.  And finally, because Disney Collection Exchange reservations require you to convert your Vacation Points to Reservation Points, those Points will no longer be able to book DVC reservations.  This means that in the event you need to cancel or modify your reservation, any surplus Points from that reservation can't be used at a Disney Vacation Club Resort. Don't worry, though! Your Points won't be lost in the event you need to make changes to your reservation –– you'll be able to use those Reservation Points for another Disney Collection Exchange before they expire at the end of your Use Year.

    Thanks for visiting planDisney, Chad.  I hope this helped to answer your question, but if you need more information as you plan your upcoming Disneyland Resort visit, please don't hesitate to stop by again –– we're always here to lend a hand!

    Have a Magical Day,
