    How far in advance can I book a cruise using dvc points? I would like to go on the members cruise next September. When can I book it?

    Ahoy there, Mary! Welcome to planDisney and Welcome Home! I'm so glad that you've stopped by with such a great Disney Vacation Club question. I love being able to chat Disney with a fellow Member!

    I am thrilled to hear that you are planning to book the 2023 Member Cruise to the Bahamas! I recently booked my very first Disney Cruise Line cruise, and I couldn't be more excited to set sail on the Disney Magic from my hometown of New Orleans, LA. But boarding the new Disney Wish for the Member Cruise, complete with extra pixie dust, DVC swag and a stop at Castaway Cay sounds like an absolute dream. A dream is a wish your heart makes, so let's chat about making your vacation wishes come true!

    When using your DVC Membership to book a Disney Cruise Line cruise, your booking window opens as soon as the Points Charts have been released for your desired sailing date. I think you will be happy to hear that booking for the 2023 Member Cruise to the Bahamas in September 2023 is open NOW! 

    Start your planning by checking out the 2023 Member Cruise Points Chart to see how many Points you will need to book. Did you know that you can use a combination of Points and cash to book a Disney Cruise Line cruise with your Membership? If you would like to pay with both Points and cash, each Guest must be paid using either all Points or all cash. Once you're ready to book (and since there is limited availability, I suggest you don't delay!), just call Member Services to convert your Vacation Points to Reservation Points, check availability and make your magical reservation!

    Once you dial "1" to reach Member Services, dial "3" to be connected with a cruise advisor. Happy booking and happy sailing, Mary!

    I hope this was helpful, Mary, and I hope you have the most magical and memorable time on the Member Cruise! Please stop by any time with any planning or DVC questions you may have along your magical journey.

    Bon voyage,
