    Does DVC now have a travel service that can assist with making reservations for hotel, park, and tickets?

    Hi there, Susan, and welcome to planDisney! I've been storing up my pixie dust for just the right occasion and it's clearly this question--so let's make some magic!

    From one Susan to another, I must say that Disney Vacation Club Membership is pretty amazing. Our Membership has allowed us to have travel experiences around the world that likely wouldn't have been possible otherwise. My favorite aspect of DVC is being able to use our Vacation Points flexibly to try out a new resort or travel with family and friends. We have an upcoming trip for a dance competition, and although our Home Resort is Disney's Polynesian Villas & Bungalows, we chose to explore the Savanna with a stay at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village. This allowed us to have some extra points available so a fellow dance mom could stay at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa. As I always say, Disney math is my favorite math!

    Currently, there is not a single specific travel service available through DVC to handle all the details of your vacation for you. However, there are several features of the Member website that make it very easy to make reservations and other plans. Let's walk through them together!
    • When my next DVC trip is just a dream, my first stop is always the Destinations & Points page. Here you can explore all of the DVC resorts and do a deep dive on the Points Charts to calculate how many points you need to book your vacation. 
    • You can book your reservation easily on the Member website, and it's also a snap to modify or cancel a reservation. However, if my vacation situation is a complicated one, I don't hesitate to call the wizards at Member Services for a magical assist!
    • From your Member Dashboard, select your reservation to add park tickets and a Disney dining plan, as well as link your reservation to your My Disney Experience account. 
    • The Membership Extras section of the website is one that you should definitely bookmark! It shows all of the currently available deals and discounts on Disney experiences, tickets, dining, shopping, and more. Often we'll pick a new restaurant that offers a DVC discount on our trips to Walt Disney World Resort, which has been a fun way to expand our culinary horizons!
    Susan, I hope this information is helpful for your vacation planning. Please reach out to me directly if I can help with any additional questions!
