    I’ve used all my 2022 points. How do I book a 2023 stay using 2023 points. The message says points will be placed in holding? Thank you

    Hey there, Jean! Welcome to planDisney and Welcome Home! I'm so happy that you've stopped by with your Disney Vacation Club question. Chatting with a fellow Member is my favorite!

    Don't you just love being a DVC Member?! Knowing that your next magical adventure is always just around the riverbend is priceless. But with Use Years, Vacation Points, Holding Accounts and more, sometimes, it can be as confusing as it is magical. But that's what we at planDisney are here for, and I'm thrilled to answer your question today!

    As long as your vacation will take place within your 2023 Use Year, using your DVC Membership to book your 2023 vacation will use your 2023 Use Year Points. To book your stay using your 2023 Points, log in to your account on the DVC website, hover over the "Plan Vacation" tab and click "Book a Vacation" to begin your search and follow the steps to complete the booking. 

    If you received a notification about your Points being placed "In Holding," it was likely just a reminder that if you cancel or modify your Resort reservation one to 30 days before check-in, your Points will then be placed in your Holding Account. If you end up having to cancel or modify your reservation, as long as you do it 31 days or more before check-in, your Points will go back into the Use Year from which they came. Hakuna Matata, Jean! It means "no worries!"

    If you have any more questions or concerns about your Points when booking your upcoming adventure, just call DVC Member Services or use the Chat feature on the DVC website to speak with an oh-so-helpful Cast Member. I find that I always have little to no wait when using the Chat feature online. 10 out of 10! Highly recommend!

    Happy booking and happy planning, Jean! I hope this was helpful, and I hope your 2023 vacation is the vacation of your dreams. Please stop by any time with any vacation planning or DVC questions you may have along the way. You've got a friend in planDisney!
