Effective today, July 12th, 2022, Disney Vacation Club (DVC) members once again have the ability to borrow 100% of their vacation points from the next Use Year to this current Use Year.
Reversing The 50% Borrowing Policy
This update to Disney Vacation Club’s Borrowing policy reverses the change made back in April of 2020 that restricted DVC members to borrowing only up to 50% of the vacation points from the next Use Year to this current Use Year.
The 50% borrowing policy was put in place to offset the build-up of vacation points that was caused by many DVC members canceling their 2020 and 2021 reservations due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The policy aimed at preventing booking availability shortages that could stem from many DVC members having the ability to book reservations with banked points from their previous use year (banked points from previously canceled travel plans), plus their current year’s vacation points, plus the full allotment of next year’s vacation points.
A Return To Normalcy
The 100% borrowing policy is a welcome return to normalcy for DVC members. This update to Disney Vacation Club’s borrowing policy once again restores the incredible flexibility that has been afforded to members in choosing how to utilize their DVC points. It’s important to note, DVC’s cancellation policy is still in effect, and cancellations of reservations within 30 days or less of check-in still results in your DVC points being placed in a holding account, which also applies to borrowed points.
