Update 10/9/20: Disney has issued the following statement regarding the upcoming autopay feature:
Dear Disney Vacation Club Member: Dues Credit Card Autopay is now available for U.S. Members that want to pay DVC Annual Dues in full each year on January 15th using a credit card! If you would like to set up recurring annual payments using a credit card, click here prior to December 10th to register your credit card. On January 15th, we will process your payment automatically. Monthly autopay is still available to Members with a U.S. bank account on file. No action is required if you prefer monthly autopay and are already registered.
You may have quickly glanced over it, but this month Disney Vacation Club Member Insider offered a sneak peek at a new annual dues payment option that will be available this November!
Previously DVC Annual Dues could be paid one of two ways:
- Full One-Time Payment via credit card, debit card, or Disney gift card.
- Monthly Auto-Debit from a checking or savings account.
Rolling out this November, Disney Vacation Club will also allow members the opportunity to set up a monthly auto-pay for annual dues via credit card.
This option is one that DVC Members have been requesting for some time, as it provides for greater flexibility and the potential at some savings when it comes to that bill we all dread seeing each year. Depending on your credit card rewards program, you could rack up enough rewards to enjoy a nice dinner at Walt Disney World by paying for your dues this way. This is also a huge benefit for international members who have historically had even more limited payment options.
Are you excited to finally have this credit card option for monthly DVC Annual Dues payments? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
