Summer is in full swing here in Central Florida! At 8:00am the temperature here at Disney’s Boardwalk Villas is a crisp 90 degrees with a moderate humidity of 85%. Needless to say, my time writing here on the balcony before melting into a puddle will be short lived, so I better get to the point…

Disney is sweetening the pot this Summer for DVC Members by offering some great savings opportunities to draw you into booking an unplanned trip or short weekend getaway to Walt Disney World. Here is a quick overview of a few I found interesting:

Save 40% on Disney Salon and Spa Services

In what I would call one of the best deals on property this Summer, Disney Vacation Club Members and their guests can enjoy up to 40% off for select spa and salon services now thru August 31st, 2019. This discount is available at the following participating locations:

  • Senses – A Disney Spa at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort
  • Senses – A Disney Spa at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort
  • Ship Shape Massage Salon Fitness at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort
  • Salon by the Springs at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge

For my wife, Amy, and I, this is an amazing savings and essentially turns what would be a pricey massage day for both of us and cuts the cost in half. I encountered many members this past week when at the spa blown away by the savings of this discount. If you have not had an opportunity to experience these spas and salons on property, this Summer deal is a perfect excuse to book your first visit!

Membership Magic FORE Members

Several special offers are available for those DVC members who want to hit the links while visiting Walt Disney World:

Golf memberships are available at Disney’s Lake Buena Vista Golf Course for $99. These memberships include a variety of savings and discounts at select courses around Walt Disney World, as well as a a special Disney Vacation Club Member golf shirt. If this shirt is the same polo they sell to DVC Members for $60+ across property than there is definitely some considerable savings with purchasing this membership.

Members can also enjoy up to 25% off select 18-hole golf courses across Walt Disney World this Summer. An even more attractive offer is a special $25 (plus tax) 9-hole round over at Disney’s Oak Trail Golf Course.

As a final golf offer, and one that I found particularly interesting, DVC members can save $5 on a round of FootGolf at Disney’s Oak Trail Golf Course. FootGolf to me sounds like a fun way to take what can be a frustrating game, and allow the opportunity to physically take that frustration out on the ball. Players can kick their way down the fairway with a regulation soccer ball towards a 21-inch hole. FootGolf is available after 2:30pm on Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Running shoes and a ball are all that are needed, making this a fun activity for the whole family.

Special Member Pricing – Disney’s Villains After Hours

Lastly, DVC members can take advantage of special pricing for one of the Summer’s hottest events at Magic Kingdom: Disney Villains After Hours.

Join Hades and a cast of other villains for an evening of mischief and fright. This 3-hour event includes a special ‘Villains Unite the Night’ stage show, as well as a sinister spin on some of your favorite Magic Kingdom attractions.

DVC Members can save $30 on regular admission, making the cost $109 per person (plus tax). If you don’t have an annual pass this may be a great alternative to a park ticket since lines and crowds will be lower than during regular hours. This event is scheduled for Thursday’s thru August 8th, so time is quickly running out to join in on the spooky fun.

These and many more offers can be found on the Disney Vacation Club website. Please note that those listed above are considered ‘Membership Extras’ and are only available to active blue card holders who have made a minimum points purchase directly through Disney Vacation Club.

Be sure to check out what special discounts are available before arriving on your next DVC vacation!
