    Can I pay cash for all or part of a reservation at a Disney Vacation Club Resort?

    Hey there, Maureen! Welcome to planDisney! Thank you for stopping by to ask such a great Disney vacation planning question!

    I absolutely love the Disney Vacation Club Resorts. No matter your destination, every Disney Vacation Club Resort is full of the Disney details, storytelling and magic that you just can't seem to get anywhere else. As soon as you step foot onto the Resort property, you are transported into the magic and can just leave the whole world behind. Every Disney Vacation Club Resort is also full of fantastic dining experiences, phenomenal Cast Members and the world-class customer service that we have all learned to expect and love about Disney. That's why I absolutely can understand why you're interested in booking a stay at a magical home away from home, and I'm so excited to answer your question!

    Maureen, if you're wondering if you can book a stay at a Disney Vacation Club Resort without using Vacation Points and by booking a cash reservation, you absolutely can!  If you're planning to travel to Walt Disney World Resort, just head over to My Disney Experience, and when building your vacation, search for your accommodations under "Deluxe Villas" to start the booking process.  Maureen, I did notice your interest in Aulani, A Disney Resort and Spa, so if you're looking to book a cash reservation at this magical paradise, head over to the "Room & Offers" tab on the Resort's website to begin your search and booking. If you book a room-only reservation at one of these Disney Vacation Club Resorts, although a credit card is required to book and pay your deposit, when you pay your balance at check-in, cash is definitely accepted! 

    Tip: While you are at the front desk, ask a Cast Member for a list and schedule of Resort activities or snap a picture of the Activities board in the lobby! That way, you'll always have easy access to the countless recreation offerings, Resort activities and schedules during your magical stay!

    Maureen, I am wishing you the most magical vacation! Please feel free to stop by any time with any planning question that may arise!

    I hope to see ya real soon!
