    Hello! I’m a DVC member and I booked to stay at the Polynesian resort using cash through the Disney site rather than the DVC site. I was wondering if I will still receive a registration email for Animal Kingdom’s moonlight magic for August 2?

    Hiya, Tricia!

    Welcome Home and welcome to planDisney!  How exciting that your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is just around the riverbend.  You will also be able to enjoy one of the best parts of Member Magic - Moonlight Magic!  These special occasions are such an incredible, exclusive benefit for eligible Disney Vacation Club Members.  The added pixie dust of after-hours access to specific theme parks, Character experiences, getting on attractions faster than Lightning McQueen can say "Ka-Chow," and all of those delectable treats adds a whole new world to a Disney vacation!  

    Tricia, I've got good news. There are two ways you can access the queue for early registration for Moonlight Magic for eligible Members with a valid Disney Resort Hotel reservation.  As long as your eligible Disney Vacation Club Membership is linked to your My Disney Experience account and your existing reservation is in there, you should receive an email letting you know that you are eligible for Moonlight Magic because you hold a qualifying Disney Resort Hotel reservation during the dates of the event.  Mark your calendar for the date in the email as once it opens on that date, you'll want to click that blue button that says "Reserve Your Spot Now" BEFORE the registration time opens and leave the page open (don't go back or refresh the page). Once it does open, usually at 11 a.m. you'll get into the queue. 

    The other option is to visit the Disney Vacation Club Moonlight Magic page, where you should also note the date that registration opens. This is typically approximately five weeks ahead of the event or thereabouts, though this is subject to change. You also want to mark this on your calendar, as you will want to click "RSVP Online" before 11 a.m. on the date registration opens and don't refresh your screen.  You will then be taken into the queue. 

    Before the registration time opens for the event, Tricia, I recommend having on hand your DVC Membership Number, the date of your event, and the number of Guests attending with you handy.  Once your number is up, you can register for the event, and bibbidi-bobbidi-boo, your Membership Magic is unlocked.

    I hope this helps you, Tricia. If I can assist with any other Disney Vacation Club or Disney vacation planning questions, stop back and see me here. I'll be so happy to help you!

    See ya real soon!
