    I am a new owner! I am excited to take my 1st owner vacation to DL. I have been to the DL resort 100's of time, but this is only my 2nd time staying at the Grand CA and 1st time as an owner. What perks can I expect and what do I HAVE to do w/my 3YO?

    Hi Jamie,

    Thanks for visiting Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Congratulations on your Disney Vacation Club Membership! I think there's something especially exciting about a first magical stay as a Member. As a Disney Vacation Club Member for over 12 years, I can share that in my experience, the excitement continues with each stay for all the wonderful Disney Vacation Club destinations. We really enjoyed our time at The Villas at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, and we look forward to returning.

    Among the many benefits and perks I appreciate as a Disney Vacation Club Member, I always enjoy the discounts on shopping and dining and entertainment. I think you'll find lots of locations that offer a Disney Vacation Club Member discount, so be sure to check them all out. Personally, I simply must make a stop for the Beignets at Ralph Brennan's Jazz Kitchen. Yum!

    Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa offers special fun for you and your little Mouseketeer. I always include a visit to Storytellers Cafe on my own "must-do" list. The Resort also offers The Grand Quest scavenger hunt, which can make for happy adventures for little ones.

    I also want to mention that you should keep an eye out for Moonlight Magic events. These special complimentary events are offered for Disney Vacation Members and their Guests and they are simply so much fun.

    Jamie, here's wishing you a most magical stay for your first Disney Vacation Club Member experience!

    Enjoy your Disney!
