Disney Vacation Club has just released the brand new vacation points charts for 2021 and there are some changes to take note of.
Editor’s Note: We have the chart for Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge entered so far and are currently working on the rest, so stay tuned!
First, there are no more seasons. In prior years, the points charts have had five seasons – Adventure, Choice, Dream, Magic, and Premier – with specific travel dates listed for each of them. For 2021, the points charts have changed to seven ‘Travel Periods.’
Disney Vacation Club posted the following announcement with the new 2021 charts:
After a thorough analysis of Member travel patterns and Resort demand, Disney Vacation Club will be adjusting the 2021 Vacation Points Chart in order to encourage travel throughout the year with the goal of improving availability.
The 2021 Vacation Points Chart will feature 7 seasons that offer a wide range of options. Travel periods with greater demand will require more Points and travel periods with less demand will require fewer Points. However, those Members with more flexible travel schedules can enjoy stays using fewer Points than the previous year. For example, Members can enjoy stays for fewer Points than the year before when traveling in early September and during the summer period. On the other hand, Members who wish to travel in certain weeks in October and November will require more Points than the year before.
These 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.
