    My husband and I would like to take a cruise but even with borrowing we don't have enough points. Can we pay the difference and how do we determine that cost?

    Ahoy there Diane,

    Welcome to planDisney! It’s always a great day when I can assist a fellow Disney Vacation Club Member. 

    I recently cruised on the Disney Dream for my planDisney training and after dreaming about a cruise with Disney Cruise Line for years, it definitely did not disappoint! The ship was incredible, the stage shows were fantastic and the dining was delicious - I can’t wait until my next cruise on the big blue. 

    Diane, I spoke with DVC Member Services regarding your question about using your Points and making a combined payment with cash. You can do a combination of the two but at least one person in the traveling party must be paid for using only Reservation Points. This must be completed by phoning DVC Member Services directly where an advisor will confirm the remaining amount that is due. 

    One perk of a Disney Vacation Club Membership is having access to Member benefits. There are a few offers specifically for Disney Cruise Line including savings on merchandise, photo packages and spa treatments. You can view the DCL Member benefits on the DVC website or by clicking here

    I hope this information is helpful to you, Diane. I wish you a wonderful voyage on the seas! If you have any other vacation planning or DVC questions, please let me know. I’m happy to help!

    Happy sailing,
