    How do I use a friends DVC points to fund my family vacation? And how will it affect other parts of the vacation purchase?

    Hi Shawnda,

    Booking a Walt Disney World Resort vacation using Disney Vacation Club points is so easy! In order to complete the Resort reservation, the Disney Vacation Club member will need to make the booking online or by calling Member Services at (800) 800-9800. A Resort confirmation number will be generated, which can then be linked to each guest's My Disney Experience account. This will then allow you to start booking Disney Dining Reservations 180 days prior to Resort check-in for the duration of your stay (up to 10 days), and FastPass+ selections starting 60 days in advance of check-in.

    As tickets to the four Walt Disney World Resort Theme Parks cannot be purchased using Disney Vacation Club points, you will need to purchase your tickets separately. Don't forget to add them to each guest's My Disney Experience account so you will be all set to begin making dining and FastPass+ selections.

    In addition, you also have the option of purchasing the Disney Dining Plan when using Disney Vacation Club points to stay at a Walt Disney World Resort. Once again, it will not be possible to complete the purchase using Disney Vacation Club points, and the member will need to make the purchase on your behalf at least 48 hours prior to check-in.

    Shawnda, I hope this information was helpful. Please let us know if you have any other questions; we are here to help!
