A little over two months ago, Disney Vacation Club (DVC) decided to temporarily close its parks and resorts and pause cruise ship departures due to COVID-19. Now, DVC has officially announced its plans to reopen resorts to members and guests on June 15-22.
These reopenings come with new resort guidelines and protocols in order to best protect the health and safety of owners, guests, and resort team members.
While DVC looks forward to owners and guests returning to their properties for family-friendly and relaxing vacations, they’re also encouraged to travel and vacation with the health and safety of themselves and others in mind. Some resort operational adjustments include:
Disney Vacation Club will continue to make adjustments as the situation evolves in order to make sure resort properties are both as safe and enjoyable as possible.
In order to continue to provide owners with as much flexibility as possible during this uncertain time, DVC has decided to extend its temporary policies regarding expiring points into August, September and October.
April, June and now August, September and October 2019 Use Year points that are set to expire in 2020 and that were used for reservations during the closure period will be extended for one year from the current expiration date. Additionally, April, June and now August, September and October 2018 Use Year points that were banked into 2019 Use Years and used for these reservations will now all expire November 30, 2020.
This temporary policy only includes expiring points that were used to book a stay arriving between March 12 and the end of the closure period and that involve a reservation canceled after February 29.
