 October Use Year? Reminder to Bank Points By May 31st!

Headless Horseman Disney World

Don’t be late for a very important date! Depending on when your use year is, it may be time to bank your Disney Vacation Club points. See what I did there? We’re back to check in with a reminder about your DVC use year and banking deadlines. It’s May, summer is on the horizon, and there’s a Disney Vacation Club banking deadline approaching. Curiouser and curiouser. Just in case you’ve been in a world of your own, DVC Resale Experts want to make sure you don’t lose any points! If you don’t plan to use them to book, remember to bank your DVC points.

If you have an October use year, your deadline to bank points is May 31st.

Disney Vacation Club Banking Deadlines

The use year is part of the Disney Vacation Club contract you purchased. It’s when your new points are assigned every year. Your use year also serves as a deadline to use your points or bank them so you don’t lose them. Remember you don’t have to be within a certain use year to book with your DVC points. The eleven month home resort advantage allows you to book at your resort before others or you can book seven months out at other resorts if you are eligible. Resale works the same as it would if you bought direct from Disney when it comes to banking and borrowing. See more information in our post about DVC Resale Pros and Cons.

Here is a complete list of all of the 8 DVC use years and the banking deadlines for each of them.
