Don’t call it a comeback! How about we call it a continuation. We’re back talking about Disney Vacation Club benefits. After our last Disney Vacation Club perks article, we uncovered a few more lesser-known benefits. Let’s unearth more benefits or as Darth Vader would say “You cannot hide forever”!
Tickets, We’ve Got Tickets
It’s all about the tickets, you cannot enjoy Walt Disney World without them. One of our new favorite Disney Vacation Club benefits is around ticket discounts. Walt Disney World offers Disney Vacation Club members a variety of ticket discounts throughout the year, from a discount on special events like Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party to After Hour Events and our favorite is the annual pass discount.
With this Disney Vacation Club benefits, all members have the opportunity to purchase annual passes at the Florida rate.
Passholder Insights: Only one member of your group has to have an annual pass to take advantage of the benefit like Memory Maker.
To the high seas, we go, right Jack? One of the newest Disney Vacation Club benefits is a discount around select Disney Cruise Line (DCL) sailings. Beyond the regular member cruises, DCL offers cruise a great discount on cruises. We’re talking 30% off!
The benefit offers vacation club members 30% off the cost of a cruise for both points and cash. How the promotion works is one guest would have to book the cruise with Disney Vacation points (at 30% off) then the rest of the group can pay 30% off the cash rate. Heading into 2020, Disney Cruise Line is already offering this Disney Vacation Club for 19 different sailings.
Passholder Insights: Disney Cruise Lines tends to have its lowest rates when the cruise schedule is released. You can lock in your price with a fully refundable deposit.
It’s the benefit that keeps on giving! Our all-time favorite of the Disney Vacation Club benefits is Membership Magic. You may know membership from the DVC Moonlight Magic events in the parks. What is lesser-known is how membership magic extends beyond these events to other special experiences.
For example, in the winter of this year, one of the membership magic experiences is the Seven Seas Tasting Cruise. New this year, members and their special guests will head out on a 3-hour tour (oh no, we know how this ends!) around Seven Seas Lagoon. The tour takes guests to each of the Seven Seas Lagoon resorts where you’ll enjoy a beverage (adult and non-adult) and appetizers.
Passholder Insights: A great spot outside the Magic Kingdom to watch Happily Ever After is from the Polynesian Resort beach.
The Disney Vacation Club benefits keep growing every year. It’s the small things that Disney does that keeps us coming back. Becoming a Disney Vacation Club is a big decision and one we look at for a while. Looking back it was a great decision and the little benefits like these are icing on the cake!
