    Do DVC members get discounts on room reservations that they pay cash with? Not using points. Thank you

    "Welcome home," Michele and thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question!

    Michele, as a fellow Disney Vacation Club Member who travels to the Walt Disney World Resort using our Vacation Points AND paying as a cash guest, I'm happy to answer this question.

    Discounted stays ARE available for Disney Vacation Club Members, however there is not a set inventory of discounted rooms nor are all Disney Vacation Club Resorts available for this perk.

    When I first became a Disney Vacation Club Member, I was able to book a discounted stay (paying cash) at Disney's Old Key West Resort. When I called in a few months ago to book another cash stay, my choices for a discounted room were either Disney's Riviera Resort or Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa. My best advice is to call Member Services and ask what resorts are available at a discount for your desired travel dates. At the time of booking, you'll secure your reservation by paying for the first night and the balance of your reservation will be due at check-in.

    Michele, I also encourage you to take a look at the Special Offers page of the Walt Disney World website in case you find a preferable option.

    I hope this helps as you're planning your next great adventure to the Most Magical Place on Earth. Wherever you next stay, I hope you find pixie dust around every turn. Please come on back to planDisney with any additional questions.

    Wishing you a lifetime of Magic!
