    Hello! I want to splurge and get the Platinum Plan. Can I book the resort with DVC points and use my annual passes and get the Platinum Plan? Thanks!

    Hi Erika!

    It sounds like you are planning an extra special vacation for your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort stay! Disney’s Platinum Plan includes not just deluxe dining, but special additional experiences such as a fireworks cruise, unlimited water sports, spa treatments and more.

    Unfortunately, the Platinum Package must be booked as a complete Magic Your Way Vacation Package, and includes a Deluxe Resort stay, park tickets and dining plan. If you wanted to experience the Platinum Package, you could book it as a cash reservation, then bank your Disney Vacation Club Points into next year to save for an even bigger vacation.

    One of the benefits of being a Disney Vacation Club Member, is that you are not required to purchase a vacation package in order to book the Disney Dining Plan. You may certainly book your room with your Disney Vacation Club vacation points, use your Walt Disney World Annual Passes for park admission and then book the Deluxe Dining Plan. The Deluxe Dining Plan would include three meals at either a table service or quick service dining location and two snacks per each night of your stay. You would also receive a Rapid Fill Mug for soft drinks, coffee and tea at your resort hotel for the length of your stay.

    I hope this helps you decide the best way to make your next Walt Disney World Resort vacation even more magical!

    Happy Planning!
