    We are first time DVC members. Coming "home" for the first time next summer. Are there any "perks" we need to be on the look out for?

    Welcome Home!

    I am always so excited to say that enchanted phrase to a new Disney Vacation Club Member! You are going to grow to love those words. They mean that you are finally on a well-deserved vacation, so breathe deeply, hold hands a little longer, relax, and enjoy! As a DVC Member, you have up to 50-years of these magical vacations ahead. 

    Before you begin your first adventure of your new Membership, you might want to download and print the 2016 Membership Magic Perks list. Of course, since Disney Vacation Club is always adding new experiences and opportunities for Members, so refer back to the Member Website for the most up-to-date information.

    Every single time you are about to tap Mickey to Mickey to charge your MagicBand for anything, it is always a good idea to ask the Cast Member assisting you, "Do you offer a DVC discount?" Most dining and shopping locations do! Just be sure to bring along your Membership ID, either the plastic version or a digital image from your smartphone, as well as your government issued ID. These savings really add up!

    I love to visit Top of The World Lounge, a swanky but family-friendly lounge and observation deck on the 16th floor of Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort. This area is available exclusively to DVC Members and their Guests and can only be reached by dedicated elevator after checking in with the Cast Member at the Concierge Podium. Head there for Wishes Nighttime Spectacular if you can!

    Finally, Joffrey's Coffee & Tea Company offers an off-menu beverage just for Members! Ask for a Vienna Latte and enjoy this sweet treat iced or hot.

    Wishing you many magical memories,
