    Why does the DVC digital membership card say temporary and exp date is only 1 month away. I know that it resets with a different date each month but why?

    Hi there Sandra, welcome back to planDisney!

    I'm so glad you brought your question here today, I'm happy to take a look. 

    A Disney Vacation Club Membership offers flexibility to customize a vacation to Walt Disney World Resort and beyond. DVC Members can choose from many different types of accommodations and numerous resorts, there are many choices to be made! A DVC Membership also provides Members with perks and benefits from dining, merchandise and experiences. I like looking at the offers before a trip to Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort so I'm in the loop about the latest and greatest perks. To access these offers, Members need to show their digital DVC Membership card. Members can show a printout or screenshot of their digital card (found once logged in on the DVC website - this will have an expiration date) or show the digital card on their smartphone. I chatted with Member Services today and was told that the cards with the expiration are meant to be temporary (to protect against loss or theft) but by adding the digital card to a smartphone, there will be no expiration date. 

    Before downloading your digital DVC Membership Card, ensure your smartphone has the latest version of the My Disney Experience app. Open the app and locate the three-line menu icon at the bottom right of your screen. Tap it and select the Disney MagicMobile tile. Then, tap “Set Up Your Pass” to bring up your customizable Card. Click “Change Pass Style” and browse through the various pass styles until you find one you like. Once you’re happy with the design, tap “Add to Wallet”, confirm the addition, and you're all set!

    To use your Card, open your smartphone’s digital wallet and tap on your Disney MagicMobile Pass, which serves as your Membership Card. Click the “i” above your Card to view your name, Disney affiliations, and a QR code.

    Sandra, I hope this information is helpful to your vacation planning. Please don't hesitate to ask any more questions! 

    See ya real soon,
