2023 Disney Vacation Club Member Cruise Point Chart Now Available

The Point Chart for the 2023 DVC Member Cruise, scheduled September 4th – 8th, 2023, on the Disney Wish, is now available!


On first glance, cash rates for the 2023 DVC Member Cruise do not appear to be all that terrible as compared to previous Member Cruises, while point rates are almost double what the value of those points would be if you chose to rent them and pay cash for the cruise instead.

DVC Members looking to book the 2023 DVC Member Cruiser on the NEW Disney Wish should mark their calendars. Bookings begin for this member-exclusive sailing on Saturday – July 23rd, 2022 at 10:00am, EST!
