    At what use year would you recommend me to buy my DVC points? I would like to travel every year between Feb and March, second best: April or May.

    Hi Luciano,

    I never really thought about this until you asked the question. I was assigned a June use year when I purchased my initial points and then added to the same use year when I purchased more later.

    With banking and borrowing points, there is not a significant advantage to one use year or the other. The month you are looking at is the month you can book your vacation. If you are going to stay at your home resort, you would start to book 11 months out and then seven months out for the other Disney Vacation Club properties. 

    What I suggest is to ask your Disney Vacation Club cast member who is working on your membership if there is an advantage to having a certain use year. They would have the best insight.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
