    Hiya, Denise!

    Welcome back to planDisney and Welcome Home!  How exciting that you are planning your next Disney Destinations adventure.  Denise, don't you love the flexibility of your Disney Vacation Club Membership? A whole new world awaits us each and every time, and certainly, if you need just a little bit of extra pixie dust, you have the option to purchase a few additional Vacation Points to make magic happen for your next trip.

    Denise, eligible Vacation Club Members have the option to purchase up to 24 additional One Time Use Vacation Points during each Use Year.  My parents have done this a few times when they need just a bit more to book their dream vacation.

    One thing to note, Denise, though is that they can't be used for Home Resort Priority, but they can be used beginning with the seven-month booking window. You can purchase the One Time Use Vacation Points for Disney Collection Hotels and World Collection (including Disney Cruise Line) provided that you are within the booking window and it is open. You do have to make the purchase when booking the reservation, so you can't add it after the fact if say you want to upgrade a reservation. 

    Currently, the price to purchase One Time Use Vacation Points is $20 per point (including taxes and subject to change.) These purchases are final and can't be changed, canceled, banked, or borrowed.  If your reservation for which you purchased them gets canceled, you have until the end of your Use Year to use these One Time Use Vacation Points you purchased. Lastly, One Time Use Vacation Points is subject to availability.

    I recommend calling Member Services to find out the best way to maximize your Vacation Points to book your vacation, and if you need to purchase One Time Use Year Vacation Points, they can help you with this. They will also walk you through the process and help you book the vacation of your dreams.

    I hope this helps you, Denise! If you have any further Disney Vacation Club questions, stop back to see me because you've got a friend in me.

    See ya real soon!
