Disney Vacation Club Perks Now Require Minimum 125-Point Ownership

“Welcome home!” If you’re already a Disney Vacation Club (DVC) member, you know the perks of discounts, special events, and member lounges are just as important as the ability to stay at a variety of stunning resorts around the globe. Well, new DVC owners will want to take note that these perks will not be available to you if you don’t purchase a minimum of 125-points. Effective immediately, DVC has increased the number of direct-purchase points an owner must buy to be eligible for membership perks.


As shared by DVCNews: The DVC members-only website has been updated to reflect a minimum 125-point ownership to access most member perks. The new disclaimer added to the site reads: Effective October 19, 2020, to obtain a Disney Vacation Club Membership Card, Members must accumulate a total of at least 125 Vacation Points purchased directly from Disney Vacation Development, Inc.

“The restriction was first introduced back in April 2016, at which time any amount of points purchased direct from DVC would make the member eligible for owner perks. In February 2018 a minimum of 75 points was added, and later increased to 100 points in September 2019. Rumors of the 125 point minimum first surfaced in August. The new threshold goes into effect today without any formal advance notice.”

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and runDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways, and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. There isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 18 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family, we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
