    I am a DVC Member and would like to stay at a Three Bedroom at Saratoga Springs June 2021, I have 332 points, can I use cash for the remainder points? If so how do I find out how much it would cost for remainder?

    "Welcome home," Marjorie! It's great to see you hEAR again at the Disney Parks Moms Panel. 

    Marjorie, my husband and I enjoyed at stay at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa last June and loved it! The leisurely walking path to Disney Springs was so convenient and we found ourselves channeling our inner racehorse when heading to the hot tub! 

    Marjorie, since you are hoping to book a 3-Bedroom Villa for your stay next summer, let's look at your options. First, make sure to review the updated 2021 Points Charts. Depending upon the time in June you are hoping to travel, you'll find that a 3-Bedroom Villa will run between 74-115 points per night (with the variation being day of the week and standard versus preferred room).

    If the 332 points you have is for one use year, you could borrow additional points from the next use year to help complete your reservation. Another option if you find that you are only short a few points is to purchase One-Time-Use Points. You may buy up to 24 Vacation points per use year to combine with your current allotment. While prices ARE subject to change, the current price per point for these is $19. 

    However, if you're saving those points or that total of 332 includes banking or borrowing, I would recommend making a second, separate cash reservation for a 3-Bedroom Villa by calling Member Services. Often Disney Vacation Club Members will be able to book Villas for a discounted cash rate. To learn more about that, you'll want to call into Member Services. Make sure to have your Member number handy before you dial. Marjorie, I called in to get a quote for a stay at Disney's BoardWalk Villas since I had other plans for my points and was able to get a price on the phone very quickly! 

    Marjorie, I hope this helps as you are dreaming about summer 2021 and all of the space that you'll be enjoying in that 3-Bedroom Villa. As a Disney Vacation Club Member, I love having so many different options of accommodations and hope you enjoy it. Please come back and see us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with any other questions you might have. 

    Wishing you a pixie-dusted stay... and, as Peter Pan would say, "think happy thoughts!"
