    I want to know how disney vacation club works

    Welcome to planDisney, Jamal!

    Jamal, my friends would tell you that as a Disney Vacation Club Member, I can't help but share my love of this vacation ownership option and just as Philoctetes guided Hercules on his way to being a hero, I'm happy to guide you into the world of Disney Vacation Club! 

    First, it's important to know that Disney Vacation Club is a vacation ownership option. When you become a "Member" it's because you have purchased a real estate interest at one of the Disney Vacation Club Resorts. Whichever resort you purchase becomes your "home" resort. For example, when my family became Members, we purchased an interest at Copper Creek Villas & Cabins at Disney's Wilderness Lodge. Your "home" resort is an important distinction as you have priority booking at that property. 

    Jamal, you might be now asking, what type of real estate interest? Well, one of my favorite features of Disney Vacation Club is the flexibility, so when you purchase a real estate interest, you'll purchase a set number of points. The number you purchase is flexible and can be tailored to fit your vacation style. For example, if you're hoping to visit a few times per year, you'd want to purchase more points than a guest who wants to visit every other year.  Points can be used at your "home" resort but they can also be used at any of the other Disney Vacation Club Resorts (or even traded in to be used at number of destinations worldwide). 

    Jamal, speaking of flexibility, with Disney Vacation Club, you are not locked into a specific room type either. You can use your points for deluxe studio, 1-Bedroom, 2-Bedroom or 3-Bedroom Villas. When my husband and I sneak away for a long weekend, we always save some points by booking a deluxe studio. However, when we're traveling for a longer trip with my kids in tow, we love the space and full kitchen found in the 1-Bedroom Villa

    Jamal, the explanation I just provided is like the appetizer to a great meal and if you're interested in learning more about Disney Vacation Club or if it might be the right for you, I encourage you to request more information HERE. If you have additional questions, I hope you'll come back and see us here at planDisney!

    Best wishes as you "go the distance" and learn more about Disney Vacation Club.
