    There used to be a calculator on the Disney site that helped you figure your day you could use to figure your date to check for a future date for a reservation at Disney, is there one available for use for DVC members?

    Welcome Back planDisney, Carol, and Welcome Home!

    One of the best features of a Disney Vacation Club Membership is the flexibility to plan adventures months in advance or last-minute stays just a few weeks out. However, just like Fix-It Felix, having the right tools available for the job is always best. Let's see what is available to help you build the perfect vacation.

    Since DVC works a bit differently than traditional hotel reservations, there are several date ranges to remember. DVC Members can book their Home Resorts as far as 11 months out and all other Resorts seven months in advance. I have found the Booking Window Calculator to be incredibly helpful in determining my exact booking date based on my desired travel dates. In order to quickly access this tool, go to the DVC website and hover over "Plan Vacation" at the top. Then scroll down under "Planning Help" to find the link for "Booking Guidelines." The Booking Window Calculator is at the middle of the page, and you simply enter your desired vacation date to begin. Before you can say, "I can fix it!" you will know exactly when you can book your Home Resort, other DVC Resorts, and even when you can use your points for Disney Cruise Line or Adventures by Disney. I hope this helps you plan your next DVC adventure.

    Thank you for visiting planDisney. We are here for all your Disney Vacation Club questions!

    Enjoy making magical memories!
