    Hello, I am a DVC member. I’m trying to book a last minute trip. I see days pop up as available every so often on the booking website. When I book separate reservations and have to barrow my points can I barrow multiple times or only once per year?

    Hi Joseph!

    Welcome to planDisney and Welcome Home!  There's nothing I love more than booking a spontaneous trip to the Walt Disney World Resort –– all the excitement without months of anticipation is definitely a win in my book!  Hopefully, you're already enjoying your last-minute adventure during The Most Magical Celebration on Earth, but I'm happy to share some information about the Points-borrowing process for your next Disney Vacation Club vacation.

    One of my favorite parts of being a Disney Vacation Member is that there is so much flexibility to customize each and every trip.  As a Member, not only can you choose from a vast selection of world-class Resort destinations, but you can use your allotted Vacation Points to tailor the perfect stay for each trip you plan.  Don't worry –– if you're borrowing Vacation Points from an upcoming Use Year, you are not restricted to borrowing all the Points you might need at once.  When borrowing is necessary, you'll be given the option to do so for each individual booking.  

    While borrowing Vacation Points can be a great option for adding additional days or booking magical accommodations, you'll want to make note of a temporary restriction to the borrowing process.  Currently, Members are only able to borrow up to 50 percent of their Points from a future Use Year, per contract.  Any reservations that have been made with Points above that 50 percent limit will be automatically canceled within seven days.  This is a temporary policy change that was made in 2021, meaning it may be reversed in the future, but no announcement has been made at this time. Be sure to keep your eye on the Disney Vacation Club website for all the latest policy updates and Member news.

    Thanks for visiting planDisney, Joseph.  I'm sorry that we weren't able to connect before your last-minute vacation, but I hope you're enjoying a magical stay!  Please feel free to stop by again with more questions –– we're always here to help!
