April Use Year? Reminder to Bank Points By November 30th!

We’re back with another reminder about DVC use years and banking deadlines. It’s November, Christmas decorations are on Main Street, U.S.A. and there’s a Disney Vacation Club banking deadline approaching. Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is back this month and the Epcot International Festival of the Holidays is just around the corner. Just in case you’ve been enjoying the season and lost track of time, DVC Resale Experts wants to make sure you don’t lose your points! If you don’t plan to use them to book a trip, remember to bank your DVC points. If you have an April use year, this is a reminder that your deadline to bank points is November 30th.

Disney Vacation Club Banking Deadlines

A use year is a part of every Disney Vacation Club contract. It’s the month when your new points are allotted each year. A Disney Vacation Club Member’s use year also identifies the deadline to use points, or bank them by, so they aren’t lost. Remember, you don’t have to be within a certain use year to book with your DVC points. The eleven month out home resort booking advantage allows you to reserve stays at your resort before others. If you are eligible to book at other Disney Vacation Club resorts, you can do that seven months out. When it comes to banking, borrowing and use years, resale operates the same as contracts bought directly.

Here is the full list of all the DVC use years and the banking deadlines for each.
