It is important to note that this sailing is not a DVC Member Cruise and instead is an exclusive opportunity for DVC Members, similar to the Disney Wish sailing offered in 2022. Disney Vacation Club stated, “Different from a Member Cruise, this voyage is part of the Disney Collection exchange. Therefore, regular cruise programming will not be altered, and daily in-room gifts are not included.”

As this Member-Exclusive Voyage to Lighthouse Point is part of the Disney Collection exchange, one person in the travel party must be paid for using only Reservation Points. Additional members traveling can be paid for via cash.
