Disney Vacation Club Vacation Points Charts outline how many points are required to stay at each resort. Points Charts are released in December of each calendar year.
As of 2021, Disney Vacation Club has adjusted points charts with the goal of improving resort availability and encouraging members to travel throughout the entire year. To facilitate this, each year has been divided into seven travel seasons. Each travel period’s required points depend on the popularity of members desiring to travel at that time. For example, members looking to travel during early January will pay a significantly lower cost per night versus members traveling during the holiday season.
As part of this year’s release, Disney Vacation Club stated the following:
“After a thorough analysis of Member travel patterns and Resort demand, the 2023 Disney Vacation Club Vacation Points Charts were adjusted to continue to encourage travel throughout the year, with the goal of improving availability for the Membership as a whole.
The 2023 Vacation Points Charts will again feature 7 travel periods with updates to balance demand. Similar to the 2022 reallocation, travel periods with greater demand will require more Points, and travel periods with less demand will require fewer Points. For example, Members can enjoy stays for fewer Points than the year before when traveling during the summer period. On the other hand, Members who wish to travel in most weeks in October and November—and in certain weeks in December—will require more Points than the year before.
The 2023 changes only affect Disney Vacation Club Resorts at Walt Disney World Resort. They do not impact Disney’s Vero Beach Resort, Disney’s Hilton Head Island Resort, The Villas at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa and Aulani, Disney Vacation Club Villas, Ko Olina, Hawaiʻi.”
