    When we were sold DVC we were advised that for our first trip the cast member would do anything they could to get us booked into a resort for a welcome home trip. Is this still the case? We have not been able to have our trip for 2 years. Thanks!

    Hi Gemma!

    Welcome Home! I know so many Disney fans from the UK can’t wait to return to the Walt Disney World Resort, and we can’t wait to see you too.

    Traditionally, Disney Vacation Club Guides will try to find a little pixie dust to assist new Disney Vacation Club Members to find accommodations for their first visit using their Membership. What this means varies from situation to situation. While sometimes Vacation Club Guides can find a room for a Member that isn’t showing as available on the Disney Vacation Club Member Website, I would caution that you do not expect that it means they can find the exact room you want, on your exact dates.

    If it is a specific resort you are hoping to stay at, they may be able to offer a few different dates that they can find for you. Or if you have a specific travel date in mind, they may be able to find a few room choices for those dates. Also know that the changes of the last year have been unprecedented, making the current booking situation is unlike what has happened in the past, making it difficult to predict what might be available.

    I truly hope the borders open very soon. I have several planDisney Panelist friends from both Canada and the UK who I can’t wait to hug!

    Stay safe, Gemma, and see ya real soon!
