    Planning our 1st DVC visit. I have heard that we may get specials or discounts while we are on vacation. Is there anyway to give me some examples of these specials/disounts?

    Hello, Deana!

    Congratulations, and may I be among the first to say it:  Welcome Home!

    That's a sound that you are going to really cherish hearing each and every time you step foot into a Disney Vacation Club resort! Truly, once you get used to hearing it, you'll soon realize that it becomes a really lovely way of reminding yourself that you've done it! You're a Member! (And then you'll smile...)

    Now that you are Disney Vacation Club Members, be sure to activate your account on  Once there, with access into your account, you'll find so many very helpful resources, including Member Privileges such as Member Perks, Special Offers and Member Benefits.  These special perks are frequently updated, so you'll want to check that site as soon as you can!  At the time of this writing, some examples of these perks include discounts on select Theme Park Annual Passes at the Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort as well as savings on golf, recreation, dining and merchandise at select stores.  At this time, some of the newest perks to DVC Members at WDW include discounts at Apricot Lane at Downtown Disney, discounted surrey bike and mobility scooter rentals at WDW as well as free entry into the ESPN / Wide World of Sports Complex, among others.

    I'm a planner (in case you couldn't tell!), so I like to know exactly what my perks are before I take the next step, such as purchasing Annual Passes, or deciding where to do our souvenir shopping. We might as well get the most out of our Membership, right?  Call Member Services at 800-800-9800 if you have difficulty activating your online Membership account; they'll be happy to help you!

    Please send me any additional questions you may have regarding your Disney Vacation Club Membership!  I can't wait for you to hear it out loud, though...Welcome Home!
