    We're newly DVC members making our first trip as such in Nov '13, wondering what things we might have looked over or not been able to be apart of on previous trips since we weren't DVC. What things do you make sure to do as members? Age ranges 9mths-64


    There are so many things that you will want to experience now that you are part of the DVC family and November is a great time to visit Walt Disney World!!

    I would encourage you to visit the DVC Member website and check out the Member Extras tab.  There you will find information on special events, perks and discounts, special offers and more! 

    Depending on when you are there in November, I have a few suggestions for you that would be well received by everyone in your party:

    Welcome Home Wednesdays are currently held most Wednesdays at 2:00 PM.  They are fun filled events that feature refreshments and time to mix and mingle with fellow DVC Members. 

    In the past, DVC Member discounts have been offered on tickets for select nights at Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party.

    Another must do if it falls during the time you will be there is the Merry Member Mixer.  You will enjoy character meet and greets, refreshments, crafts, entertainment, the opportunity to purchase limited-edition DVC merchandise.  Great event and I would highly encourage you to make it a must do during your vacation.

    I would encourage you to keep your DVC Member card with you at all times when you are on vacation and don't be shy about asking any all Cast Members if there are DVC discounts when you are purchasing merchandise, dining at restaurants or enjoying various recreational activities.  You will be amazed at the number of discounts you will receive.  It's just one of the amazing perks of being a Member.

    I'm so happy that you have become a member of Disney Vacation Club!  Please let me know if you have any other questions regarding your Membership.  Once again, WELCOME!!!!!!
