    Tammy from AZ Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    Can i use my dvc membership points to book at "value resorts" at WDW? Like Art of Animation or Pop resorts.

    "Welcome home, Tammy" and thanks for bringing your question to planDisney. 

    Tammy, as a fellow Disney Vacation Club Member, I'm so happy to chat about the different ways you can use Vacation Points. One of my favorite aspects of Disney Vacation Club is the flexibility offered in this "club" to customize trips, whether that means accommodations, resorts or even new destinations!

    Now, Tammy, the quick answer to your question is YES, you are able to use your Vacation Points to book hotels that are not Disney Vacation Club Resorts such as Disney's Art of Animation Resort or Disney's Pop Century Resort. However, let's talk about a few specifics that are important to note.

    To book something in the Disney Destinations collection, you'll be converting your Vacation Points to reservation points. Once your points have been converted, you won't be able to move them back to Vacation Points, so please make sure you've reviewed all of your options prior to moving your points. To book anything in the Disney Destinations collection, you'll need to call into Member Services and speak with a Cast Member. 

    Finally, Tammy, I encourage you to browse through the 2021 Points Charts for all of the resorts that pique your interest because you may be surprised at the points per night required for some of the resorts. For example, at the end of October, a 2-Bedroom Villa at Disney's Old Key West Resort that sleeps up to 9 guests is 35-39 points per night whereas at Disney's Art of Animation Resort, a Cars Family Suite that sleeps us to 6 guests is 43-47 points per night

    Tammy, I hope this information is helpful as you're planning your October vacation. Wherever you choose to stay, I hope you have a Magical trip. If you have additional questions, please come on back to planDisney where we love to serve guests even more than Lumiere loved to serve cheese soufflé!
