Disney Vacation Club Members Only Event Schedule At Walt Disney World

There seems to be a growing trend of special events open only to Disney Vacation Club members at Disney World.  Disney Vacation Club (DVC) is Disney’s version of a timeshare.  Members purchase an allotment of points they can use each year for stays at various DVC properties.  As part of last year’s anniversary celebration, Disney offered extra benefits like retail discounts and private lounges at Disney World to treat DVCmembers more special.

There were some special events earlier in 2017 that I missed.  Fellow DVC member perryplatypus brought them to my attention.  There are two great benefits to these special events.  First, they’re included in the cost of your DVC membership.  Unlike a ticket to the Halloween or Christmas celebrations, these events are free for DVC members.  Second, since the entry is restricted, you’re bound to find much shorter lines for rides and experiences.  Heck, there was even free food at the most recent events.

After a bit of searching, I found a list of events occurring on almost a monthly basis throughout the rest of the year.  Here’s what you can expect for the remainder of 2017:

The Final Two Pennies

Tickets to Disney get more expensive every year.  Disney Vacation Club members make big financial commitments to Disney, mostly because we’re just a little nutty about all things Disney.  I’ve always liked events like the Halloween and Christmas parties.  They limit attendance, making lines for popular rides shorter.  But, those tickets are usually at least $70.  The DVC member events are free.  The expenses add up quickly on a Disney World trip.  I’ll take a free day at the parks!

  1. We own DVC and am pretty impressed at the amount of free events they’ve added. Unfortunately, we haven’t had trips planned during those times…but it’s nice to see they continue to offer these perks.
