    How do i purchase park ticket as a dvc member?

    Hiya, Jill!

    Oh boy, I am so excited to help a fellow Disney Vacation Club Member, and thanks for stopping by planDisney with your Disney vacation planning question.   Our family loves having a home away from home while immersing ourselves in Disney storytelling and magic when we visit Walt Disney World Resort. Disney Vacation Club Membership has truly made our vacation dreams come true and added a whole new world to family trips.

    Jill, there are so many Member Extras and benefits for eligible Members as part of the Disney Vacation Club.  At this time, we do not have any discounts as DVC Members for theme park tickets, so for this, you would just purchase them online when you book your DVC Resort using your Points or by calling Member Services who can help you add them to your reservation. 

    One thing to note is that just like any theme park ticket purchase, you will also need to make a theme park reservation, which is a separate step.  What I always recommend is to check the theme park reservation availability FIRST for the dates of your visit, then purchase the tickets, and then immediately reserve your spot for the theme parks of your choice on your ticket dates.  You need two steps because you can't make the reservation without the ticket, and you want to buy a ticket for an available park. Both a valid ticket AND a theme park reservation is required for entrance into a theme park.

    You CAN do Park Hopper tickets, and at this time you do not need a reservation for the second park, as long as you visit the park you have the reservation for FIRST. You can enter your next park as early as 2:00 p.m. and stay until the park closes, but keep an eye on the Hours & Events Calendar as times can change. 

    Now, one thing I do want to point out is the Member Extras and benefits that might interest you. Currently, eligible DVC Members DO receive a discount for Disney Waterparks, though this is subject to change.  These tickets can be purchased separately and do NOT require a reservation.  By purchasing them separately, if eligible, you can get your discount off each ticket which is a nice savings.  My kids love the Disney Waterparks, so this is my favorite Member Extra and benefit because it has saved us quite a bit of money that goes right into the Dole Whip fund.

    I hope this helps you, Jill!  If you have any additional Disney vacation planning questions, stop back and see me here and I'll be so glad to help you out.
