Disney Vacation Club has just announced changes to their Walt Disney World DVC point chart for 2021 following a thorough analysis of member travel patterns and resort demand. These changes are aimed to incentivize members with incredible deals to travel at different (particularly less popular) dates throughout the year and improve the overall booking availability at the brand’s various Lake Buena Vista properties.
Starting in 2021, Walt Disney World DVC resorts are doing away with its standard five seasons (Adventure, Choice, Dream, Magic, and Premier) and are now breaking down the chart into seven travel periods that are categorized by the popularity of specific dates. Not only is DVC adjusting how many travel periods exist, but they are also changing the point value of vacations within each category. Dates that fall within more popular travel periods will require more points, while lower demand dates will require fewer points with individualized charts available for each resort. For example, it will cost more DVC points in 2021 than in years past to vacation at Walt Disney World during the holiday season, but also fewer points to travel during slower months like September. By adjusting point values and adding in more travel periods, Disney is hoping to offer its members more flexibility and availability for its vacations.
These point chart changes will impact Disney Vacation Club resorts within Walt Disney World Resort and will not impact Aulani Disney Vacation Club Villas, Disney’s Hilton Head Island, Disney’s Vero Beach Resort, and The Villas at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. The complete list of affected properties includes:
