Point Bookings Open for New Members at The Villas at Disneyland Hotel

Members who have purchased an add-on contract at The Villas at Disneyland Hotel can begin booking with points beginning today, May 16th!

Initial bookings are only available by calling DVC Member Services at 800-800-9800.

Members who do not own at The Villas at Disneyland Hotel can utilize their points at the 7-month window beginning July 27th, 2023. Booking should be available online at that time.

It’s important to note that Disneyland Hotel will have the same booking restrictions as Riviera. This will apply to ownership interests purchased on the secondary market after January 19th, 2019. Owners who purchased before that time will not be affected by these restrictions.

For both types of eligible members, the first date possible to book (pending availability) will be opening day, September 28th, 2023. For those who booked with cash for the grand opening weekend, we are unsure of the odds of finding point availability, but it is certainly worth trying. It is likely there will be a lot of cash bookings dropping off as members are able to secure reservations with points.

Keep in mind that the transient taxes will apply (chart below) to point bookings, but it’s still less overall than the current cash rates, which do have the transient taxes built-in.

Stay tuned for updated information on DVCFan.com and within the DVC Fan Facebook Group!
