    I'm a DVC member but there is no DVC availability for the week I NEED to stay (running the princess 1/2 marathon). Isn't there an option to use points somehow for the other locations or to pay a discount rate for a regular hotel stay or something?

    Hiya Kerri!

    Welcome back to planDisney and Welcome Home!  How exciting that you'll be logging some magical miles during this year's Disney Princess Half Marathon.  As a former runner, I love the excitement and energy that you feel during a runDisney event weekend, even as a spectator.  It's so cool to see everyone proudly displaying those post-race finisher's medals and don't even get me started on the costumes –– they're incredible!  

    With all the excitement surrounding the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Celebration, Disney Vacation Club Resort reservations have been filling up fast, especially during big events like the Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend. Don't worry, though –– you have a few options to help you book a reservation for your upcoming stay. Using Points, you can book a stay at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel by making a Disney Collection ExchangePoints charts for these stays are available online, but to check availability and book a reservation you'll need to give Member Services a call at (800) 800-9800. Each confirmed Disney Collection Exchange reservation requires a non-refundable $95 transaction fee and most reservations fall under the "Rule of Four", meaning they cannot be booked during the last four months of your Use Year. As an eligible Disney Vacation Club Member, you may also have the opportunity to book a discounted cash stay for your upcoming trip.  To check what options may be available, your best bet is to speak with a Member Services Cast Member and ask about discounted Resort rates for your upcoming dates.  

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question, Kerri!  I hope every step of the 2022 Disney Princess Half Marathon is magical from start to finish!

    Best of Luck!
