One Time Use (OTU) Vacation Points Price Increase For DVC Owners

Buying One Time Use DVC Points

Buying one time use (OTU) Disney Vacation Club points is an excellent way to bridge the gap between the number of points you currently have in your account, and the number of points you’ll need to book your next Disney vacation. As of today, we’ve just gotten notice from Disney Vacation Club management that the price for one time use points will be increased from $19 per point to $22 per point.
