Looking to join the Disney Vacation Club? You can currently enjoy an extra $1,000 in savings when you purchase your membership aboard a Disney Cruise Line ship! That’s right – in addition to all the great benefits that come with being a DVC member, you can now save even more when you purchase your membership on a cruise.

Amy and I recently took a few minutes aboard our Disney Wish sailing to sit down and chat with a Disney Vacation Club guide about the current incentives and deals being offered.

The base incentives and discounts for Aulani, Riviera, and Grand Floridian are identical to those available everywhere. And the bad news is that for existing members, that is all you are going to get. No additional savings are offered for anyone suffering from “add-on-itis” at sea.

Looking at buying DVC for the first time aboard your Disney Cruise? You are in luck! New members can receive an additional $1,000 off current incentives when purchasing aboard their sailing.

Buying Disney Vacation Club on a Disney Cruise has historically provided some of the best savings and discounts. Disney Cruise-based incentives have been some of the most generous over the years—often including onboard credit and Disney Gift Cards—among other incredible offers to first-time DVC purchasers. Disney Cruise Line has been slow to bring back these same incentives since sailings resumed following the pandemic.

While the jury is still out on whether or not Disney Vacation Club will offer further special rates and incentives for cruisers in the near future, it’s great to hear that some level of additional savings has returned to the seas!

Amy and I are new Orlando, Florida residents where we live with our dogs Odie the greyhound and Hermès the Spanish galgo. We are DVC owners at Animal Kingdom Lodge, BoardWalk Villas, Grand Californian, and Grand Floridian, Disney World Annual Passholders, and love educating Disney Vacation Club members on how to both use and maximize the value of their DVC points!

  • Hi! We are sailing on the Disney Wish in January and considering a DVC purchase. Was this offer for 150 point purchases for new members or did you have to buy more?

  • Did you have to buy a certain number of points to get the thousand dollars?
