    Hi, I’m hoping to stay in a DVC property next year. Even though I’m not a DVC member will I still qualify for the perks such as extended hours if I stay in a DVC studio? Thanks

    Welcome Back to planDisney, Karen!

    I am so excited to chat with you again about your stay at a Disney Vacation Club Resort! There is an extra layer of pixie dust added to a Walt Disney World Resort adventure when you end each day at a DVC Resort. Let's take a look at the perks!

    As long as your name is on the reservation and you have the reservation linked in your My Disney Experience account then you should have access to the benefits of staying on property at Walt Disney World Resort. This would include Extended Evening Theme Park Hours and Early Theme Park Entry. In order to ensure your reservation is linked to your account, go to the Walt Disney World Resort website and hover over the My Disney Experience icon in the top right hand corner. Then scroll down and click on "Reservations and Tickets." Then you should see a "Resort Hotel" icon. If you hover over that you will see a blue box for "Link Reservation." Then you will be prompted to enter your confirmation number and last name. If you have any difficulty adding your reservation, I recommend calling the Disney Resort Hotel Reservation phone line. 

    The perks you would not have access to would be those benefits exclusively for Disney Vacation Club Members. These include discounts and entrance to DVC exclusive Lounges, Top of the World Lounge- A Villains Lair or the Member Lounge at EPCOT. If you are interested in Membership, I would highly encourage setting up an in-person tour with a Cast Member during your visit. We have been Members for over a decade and I can vouch that it is an investment in a lifetime of memories!

    I hope this helps with planning your vacation. We are here for all your Disney Vacation Club questions.

    Enjoy making magical memories!
