    I have my nephews wedding in January. I was wondering if the borrowing restrictions will be ending before I need to book in early June, as I need my points to book a 2 bedroom to accommodate my family. Thank you for your time. Sincerely, Barbara 

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

    Wow, a wedding at Walt Disney World Resort sounds like an absolute dream come true! Bringing friends and family along on a vacation to The Most Magical Place on Earth, especially for a special occasion, is one of the best things about a Disney Vacation Club Membership. Being able to treat family and friends to a stay in a fabulous Two-Bedroom Villa is an incredible feeling and is something that I would have never been able to do without the magic of Disney Vacation Club. DVC has made these dreams a reality for my family and me. A dream is a wish your heart makes, so, let's chat about making all your family vacation wishes come true!

    As of now, the temporary Vacation Point borrowing policy, which states that Members can only borrow up to 50 percent of the following Use Year's Points, is still in effect. While an end date for this temporary policy change has not yet been announced, I spoke with an oh-so-helpful Cast Member with DVC Member Services who assured me that the DVC inventory is constantly being monitored, and the situation is being re-evaluated with the ultimate goal of returning to the standard borrowing policy as quickly as possible. I would suggest that as the opening of your seven-month booking window approaches, you check back with the DVC website or call DVC Member Services to see if the policy has changed. If it has not changed before you're able to book your trip, let's chat about another option!

    After borrowing 50 percent of your next Use Year's Vacation Points, if you are still short on Points, did you know that you can purchase up to 24 One-Time-Use Points per Use Year?! Just call DVC Member Services to purchase the Points at the time of booking your Two-Bedroom Villa. I suggest calling right when Member Services opens on the day your seven-month window opens to ensure you get the DVC Resort accommodations you are wishing for. After borrowing Points and purchasing 24 One-Time-Use Points, if you are still short on Points, chat with a Member Services Cast Member about a possible discount on cash stays in DVC Villas. While discounts are subject to change, oftentimes, DVC Members can get up to 25 percent off cash stays in a DVC Villa! Membership Magic unlocked!

    I hope this was helpful, Barbara, and I hope you can book the vacation of your dreams next month! 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,
