    Pamela from PA Asked

    We are looking at renting a DVC villa through an outside company. Will I be able to book a bounce back offer for a future trip if I do this?

    chEARs Pamela!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel! The only thing I like more than a stay at a Walt Disney World Resort is having another visit already on the books before I leave!

    Bounce Back offers are a fantastic way to make sure you can say “See Ya Real Soon” to Mickey and company! The offer is usually found in the welcome booklet in your Resort room. Since Mickey is the Big Boss, he gets to decide when and what the offer will be, but it usually consists of a significant discount on Resort stays within a specific time period. I looked up a few of the past offers, and some have even had free dining!

    It looks like you will be staying at one of the Villas in January of next year, so I’m sure by then the special discount will have changed. Check the welcome folder when you arrive, and if you can’t find it, or have any questions, you can chat with the Lobby Concierge or dial extension 8844 from your in-room phone and ask if there are any offers for current guests. Even though you are staying on rented points, you are eligible to book! One note - you need to book your bounce back before you check out of your Resort hotel.

    Mickey Mouse doesn’t believe in double-dipping, so you won’t be able to combine a bounce back offer with any other discounts. My fellow panelist Brandy suggested that you do your “Mickey Math” and calculate what serves your family best. Regardless, when you are ready for your stay, take advantage of the My Disney Experience app. After you link your reservation, you can make and keep track of your FastPass+ selections, check in to your Resort, and even unlock your hotel room door!

    Pamela, if you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to come back.
