    If I purchase a DVC add-on contract at a different home resort, can I use all my points at the 11 month priority booking window?

    Hiya, Elise!

    Welcome Home and welcome to planDisney! How exciting you are thinking of expanding the magic in your life by adding a second contract to your DVC Membership.  A whole new world awaits you with these added Vacation Points and you will be able to maximize the magic for sure!

    Elise, when you purchase a real estate interest at a different Disney Vacation Club Resort, you now have two Home Resorts. However, during the Home Resort Priority Period, only the Vacation Points for that specific resort can be utilized during the Home Resort Priority Window at the individual resort.  In other words, if you have Home Resorts for both Disney's Old Key West and Disney's Saratoga Springs, only the Vacation Points owned at Disney's Old Key West can be used during the Home Priority Period for that Resort and at Disney's Saratoga Springs, only the Vacation Points at Disney's Saratoga Springs can be used during the Home Priority Period for that Resort.

    Now, if a Member owns multiple Home Resort contracts on one Membership, which is the norm for adding on points, here is important information you should know.  If you want to use Vacation Points from both contracts, then again, only the Vacation Points allotted to the Home Resort can be used during the Home Resort Priority Period and all other Vacation Points from your second Home Resort can be used at the 7-month window to book at all DVC properties.  So, let's say you have Disney's Old Key West and Disney's Saratoga Springs as Home Resorts and you want to use the Vacation Points from both Home Resorts to book one vacation at Disney's Old Key West.  You could only use the Vacation Points you own at Disney's Old Key West during the Home Priority Period and then beginning at the 7-month window, you can add days onto your Disney's Old Key West stay using the Vacation Points from your Disney's Saratoga Springs contract. So, you would book the vacation in two parts. Alternatively, you could book a split stay with a few days at each Resort. It's important to note that Vacation Points cannot be transferred between owned contracts on the same Membership.

    Now, if a Member owns multiple Home Resorts on multiple Memberships, Vacation Points that are transferred between different Member numbers maintain the same Home Resort Priority for the individual resort and are not combined with different Home Resort contracts.

    To make the most of your specific Vacation Points, I recommend calling Member Services for assistance. They would be able to best assist you with when you can make reservations and get the most out of your specific Membership.

    I hope this helps you, Elise!  If you have any further Disney Vacation Club questions, stop back and see me and I'll be so happy to help you.

    Enjoy making lasting magical memories!
