    DVC mems at SS & RR-wondering when the 50% hold for use years will be lifted- Specifically our use year is Sept to Sept, we are using half of our 2021points for a January stay-we want to visit again in May 2021 when will things go back to normal use?

    Welcome Home Kathern!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney!

    Congratulations on your recent purchase of the newest Disney Vacation Club Resort, Disney’s Riviera Resort. I had the pleasure to stay there last December and I can tell you with confidence, it is one of the best. From the spacious rooms, the best character breakfast on property, and easy transportation to EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios,you’re going to love being an owner there.

    As you mentioned, at this point you are only allowed to borrow 50% of your points. At this time, we don't have a time frame of when you will be able to go back to borrowing 100% of your points. This was done with members in mind. With the closures, there are a number of members that will need to use points in the immediate future and limiting borrowing helps with availability for all members in the immediate future.

    Disney Vacation Club Members can sometimes get discounts on rooms at Disney Vacation Club Resorts. I would recommend trying this option for your May 2021 trip. You’ll need to call Member Services and ask about cash rooms for members for your specified dates. At times, they have rooms at special member rates that are available for booking.

    Well Kathern, I hope this information finds you well and if you need anything else for either of your trips please come back and let us know.

    Remember, always believe in the Magic!
