    may i use DVC points to book a cruise?

    Welcome to planDisney, Karolina, and Welcome Home!

    We have been Disney Vacation Club Members for the past ten years, and I continue to be in awe of the flexibility of our Membership. Not only can our Vacation Points be used for DVC Resorts around the country, but we can also transfer those points toward booking Adventures By Disney or National Geographic Expeditions. Let's dive in and discuss using your Points for a Disney Cruise Line sailing! 

    I have fantastic news for you, Karolina! Eligible DVC Members can use their Vacation Points to book a Disney Cruise Line voyage. First, I recommend you look at potential Disney Cruise Line Destinations as well as Points Charts to get an idea of how many Vacation Points you may need. Once you are ready to use your Points to reserve a Disney Cruise, you will need to give DVC Member Services a call to complete your transaction.  

    Using Vacation Points to book with Disney Cruise Line is a Disney Collection Exchange and works differently than using Vacation Points for a DVC Resort. Your Vacation Points will be transferred into Reservation Points, which will incur a one-time, non-refundable fee of $95 (prices are subject to change). Once those Points are converted, they can no longer be used to book DVC Resorts and cannot be transferred back to Vacation Points. Additionally, Disney Collection exchanges typically fall under The Rule of Four. This means that these reservations cannot typically be made during the last four months of your Use Year. If you have any additional questions, I recommend calling DVC Member Services to walk you through the process with specifics for your Points. I hope this helps you book a Disney Cruise Line adventure soon!
