    Welcome to planDisney, Adrian, and Welcome Home!

    I'm so excited to chat with you about your Disney Vacation Club Membership. We have been Members for over a decade, and each year brings new vacation adventures. Let's take a look at how Use Years work. 

    Disney Vacation Club operates on a flexible Vacation Points system that provides Members with an annual allottment of Points, versus a monthly allottment. So if you have a September Use Year then you have access to all of your Points for the year beginning on September 1st. The 11-month booking window refers to your Home Resort Priority Period. As far as 11 months in advance, you can reserve the DVC Resort in which you have ownership interest. For example, with a September Use Year, you could use all of your yearly Points to book your Home Resort as far out as August of the next year. All other Resorts can be booked as far as seven months in advance. I hope that helps explain how Vacation Points are allotted and utilized. However, since I cannot see the exact specifics of your Points, I recommend calling DVC Member Services if you have any further questions so they can review your Membership.

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

    Enjoy making magical memories!
