    I have a March use year and plan on booking at my home resort for a May 2023 vacation. When I book on the web site in June 2022 will Disney take my 2023 points for that trip or the 2022 points I have in my account now if I don't bank or borrow?

    Hey there, Kelly! Welcome to planDisney and Welcome Home, neighbor! I'm so happy that you've stopped by with your Disney Vacation Club question. I'm so excited to chat Disney with a fellow Member and Louisianian!

    Don't you just LOVE being a Disney Vacation Club Member?! Knowing that my family's next magical adventure is always right around the corner brings joy to my everyday Louisiana life. But with Use Years, booking windows and expiration dates (oh my!), Membership can definitely get confusing. But you've come to the right place, and I'm thrilled to answer your question today!

    Since you have a March Use Year, your 2022 Vacation Points will expire on February 28, 2023, unless you bank your Points into your 2023 Use Year. That means that to use your 2022 Vacation Points, you either have to complete your travel by February 28, 2023, or bank your Points. If you don't bank your 2022 Points, a trip occurring in May 2023 will use the 2023 Use Year's Vacation Points. So, if you want to use your 2022 Vacation Points for your May 2023 vacation, I suggest banking your Points. You have until October 31, 2022, to bank your 2022 Vacation Points, so, you have some time to decide if that is what you would like to do, unless you will need those 2022 Points, as well as your 2023 Points, to complete your booking in a couple of weeks. Just keep in mind that banking is a final transaction and can't be reversed. 

    If you do decide to bank your 2022 Vacation Points to use for your May 2023 vacation, the DVC system should automatically use the banked Points first, before using your 2023 Use Year Points. But if you would like to be sure of how your Points are being used, just log in to your account on the DVC website, hover over the "My DVC" tab, click "My Vacation Points" and then the blue "View Transactions" button to see your Full Statement of Vacation Point Activity and history. If you have any issues or questions about your Point usage, just call DVC Member Services or use the Chat feature on the website to speak with a super helpful Cast Member. Happy booking, my friend, and may no Point get left behind!

    I hope this was helpful, Kelly, and I hope you have the BEST time on your magical 2023 vacation! Please stop by any time with any vacation planning or DVC questions you may have along the way. You've got a friend in me!

    I hope to see ya real soon,
