    How long will the limit on borrowing only 50% of points last?

    Hey there, Gina! Welcome to planDisney! I'm so glad that you've stopped by with your Disney Vacation Club question. I always love chatting Disney with a fellow Member!

    It seems as if no matter how many Vacation Points I add on to my DVC Membership, there are still never enough Points, and I always want more! Planning Disney Vacation Club adventures is my favorite thing to do, so, I always seem to be in a perpetual state of borrowing Vacation Points. In fact, I joke with my friends and fellow DVC Members that the current borrowing restriction, which limits Members to borrowing only up to 50 percent of their next Use Year's Vacation Points, is actually saving me and my future vacations from myself. It's only funny because of how true it is. However, since I'm planning a big family and friends vacation at Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa next summer, I definitely understand the frustration with this restriction, and I'm happy to answer your question today. 

    While an end date for this temporary borrowing policy has not yet been announced, I did call DVC Member Services to ask a Cast Member if they had any knowledge of when this policy might be lifted. The super helpful Cast Member assured me that the DVC inventory is constantly being monitored, and the situation is constantly being re-evaluated, with returning to the standard borrowing policy as soon as possible as the ultimate goal. I suggest keeping an eye on the DVC website for information on the borrowing policy being lifted as soon as the news drops.

    If you have borrowed 50 percent of your next Use Year's Vacation Points and still find yourself short, did you know that you can purchase up to 24 One-Time-Use Points to complete a reservation for the vacation of your dreams?! Just call DVC Member Services at the time of booking to purchase these Points. I've used these One-Time-Use Points many times, and this is just one example of the flexibility of a DVC membership that I love so much! 

    I hope this was helpful, Gina, and I hope that we both see this temporary policy lifted very soon! I'm wishing you a lifetime of magical memories using your magical Membership. Please stop by any time with any vacation planning or DVC questions you may have. You've got a friend in me!

    I hope to see ya real soon,
