    We have a trip planned for the end of September. I am trying to decide which character dining to go to. When you click on discounts available it only had annual pass holders listed. I am almost positive that just last week it had dvc member listed also.

    Hey There, Hi There, Ho There, Amanda!

    You're as welcome as can be here at planDisney.  Doesn't Character Dining add a whole new level of magic to your Walt Disney World Resort vacation?  If you ask me, there's nothing better than getting to enjoy some one-on-one time with your favorite characters, along with a fabulous meal.  And now that hugs are back (YAY!!!), I have a feeling that character experiences are going to be better than ever.  I have a feeling that there are lots of pictures, autographs, and hugs (of course!) in store for your family this fall!

    As a Disney Vacation Club Member, dining is the perfect way to put your Member Benefits to work and save a few dollars during your upcoming visit.  And the best part?  Most table service restaurants at Walt Disney World Resort offer a discount to DVC Members, including Character Dining options.  But instead of going to the restaurant page, I recommend using the Disney Vacation Club website for the most up-to-date information when it comes to Member dining discounts.   All you need to do is click on "Offers & Benefits" and select "All Member Benefits" from the drop-down menu.  On the Member Benefits page, click the "Dining" button to filter your results and see all the restaurants with available discounts, listed alphabetically.  I'm not sure why the Disney Vacation Club discount doesn't always show up on the restaurant page, but by using the DVC website, you'll be getting the most accurate information (and likely, a lot more results).

    And while we're talking Member Benefits, Disney Vacation Club just announced some very exciting perks are returning for Members that you might want to take advantage of during your visit.  Not only will Top of the World Lounge be returning this summer (finally!!!), but Member Fireworks Cruises and Moonlight Magic events are also available for Members to enjoy once again.  I'm so excited to see these special experiences are back and I can't wait to add them to my itinerary for an upcoming visit.  Be sure to take a peek at the Disney Vacation Club website for all the latest details and Member news.

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question, Amanda.  No matter which restaurant you choose, I hope your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort visit is filled with lots of hugs and plenty of Membership magic!

    Happy Planning,
