Disney Vacation Club Membership Cards Go Digital Only in 2022

Disney Vacation Club has announced there will be no more physical Disney Vacation Club Membership Card as of 2022. The blue physical DVC membership cards will expire at the end of 2021. Beginning January 1st, 2022 DVC membership cards will go digital only and be accessible via the My Disney Experience app. This doesn’t come as much of a surprise as Disney Parks have been integrating technology into the visiting experience for nearly a decade. The all mobile device, no paper and person experience can be overwhelming for some, especially these days when tickets, menus and the FastPass replacement all require you to use an app or website. 

Remember earlier this year in June of 2021, the total Vacation Points needed to obtain a blue Disney Vacation Club Membership Card was raised to 150 points. Members who already had a Disney Vacation Club Membership Card maintained their status but 150 became the minimum Vacation Points value to obtain a card and the perks for new members.

Is having the Disney Vacation Club Membership Card worth it? Not necessarily. Buying DVC resale comes with some restrictions but the savings provide a much better value than buying direct. You may not receive all of the DVC member perks but many are minimal discounts or special events you aren’t guaranteed to attend anyway.

    I am 78 and my wife is 76. We are frequently frustrated by the automization of the Disney experience. It is not always easy. If given a choice which apparently we are not, showing a physical card is so much easier to be identified as a DVC member. My current card is an antique but most cast members, not all have willingly accepted it. Not sure was ever told needed to be changed. I suppose Disney is continuing to make things easier for themselves but I am not so sure it is best for many of the especially older DVC members. Perhaps a poll of some sort to get their feedback would be interesting. It would be for me. If many also frustrated, perhaps there should be some reconsideration for eliminating ID cards. If most are not expressing such frustration then I guess I will have to adjust and go with the flow. Thanks for listening. Claude

      Claude, you’re not alone. This is a frustration of ours as well, and we’ve heard the same from many DVC members.
