    Want to make a reservation in Disneyworld not using my points

    Hey there, Paul! Welcome to planDisney and Welcome Home, my DVC neighbor! I'm so glad that you've stopped by with your planning question. I love chatting with a fellow Disney Vacation Club Member!

    Don't you just love being a DVC Member, Paul?! I know I do! Knowing that my next magical adventure is always on the horizon is priceless, and the flexibility of banking and borrowing Vacation Points to create dream vacations is the pixie-dusted icing on the magical Membership cake. With so many magical vacations on the horizon (and so many more on my bucket list), there never seem to be enough Points! But the magic continues to call, so let's chat about booking your next adventure at The Most Magical Place on Earth without using your Points.

    To make a "cash" reservation at a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel at Walt Disney World Resort without using your DVC Points, start by logging in to your My Disney Experience account and clicking the "Places to Stay" tab. Then, just enter your dates and number of Guests to start your search and the booking process. You can even add tickets if you need them! I also suggest checking out the Special Offers, Deals & Discounts page to take advantage of the latest and greatest special discounts. It's magic time!

    Paul, did you know that DVC Members can receive discounts on cash stays at DVC Resorts based on availability?! I recommend calling DVC Member Services to check availability for your vacation dates and see what Membership magic awaits you!

    I hope this was helpful, Paul, and I hope you have the most magical and memorable spring vacation! Please stop by any time with any planning or DVC questions you may have along the way. You've got a friend in planDisney!

    Adventure is out there!
