What if I have extra DVC Points? – DVC Resale Experts Q&A

To those who are Disney Vacation Club Members already, this may seem like a silly question, as DVC Members often laugh when anyone mentions “banking” DVC points.  More often than not, members find themselves borrowing points so frequently that they had to add on more DVC points to their membership.  Members even joke about having a disease called “addonitis”.  I’ve been afflicted with addonitis personally…several times, in fact.  

Believe it or not, there are times when we are asked at DVC Resale Experts, “I have points I haven’t used and they’re about to expire.  What do I do?”  This can especially be the case when you purchase a DVC resale contract loaded with banked points.  When you can’t drop everything and take a vacation to use these extra points, there are actually a couple of options to help you make the most of the situation.

  • Disney Vacation Club Members can bank their points forward one year, and also borrow from one year ahead, however many DVC Members don’t realize they can stretch their points even further.  So how do members accomplish this?  You can stretch your points about 4 years by banking for the one year that DVC allows, and then if you still won’t be using your points soon enough, toward the end of that second year, you deposit your DVC points into the RCI exchange network.  Disney calls it the World Passport Collection.  This gives you two more years in which you can use these points to book vacations at nearly 4000 gorgeous RCI resorts all over the world.  You can choose from vacations like a Caribbean getaway at Secrets St James in Montego Bay, Jamaica, or the Fitzpatrick Castle in Dublin, Ireland.  The possibilities are endless!

  • Another great option is renting your DVC points.  When you rent through a reputable DVC rental company, such as DVC Rental Store, they’ll handle everything for you and you’ll receive as much as $16 per point.  We love this option for turning our points into cash to use on cruises and other vacation options!
