Are you ready to visit the most magical place on earth? Whether you are a kid or a kid at heart Walt Disney World vacations will be a memorable, magical experience for the whole family. Don't leave anyone out - bring along the kids, aunts & uncles, grandparents, and of course mom & dad.
If you are like most families you've probably got a list of places to visit for vacation but the difference between your family and others is that you know where dreams come true and that's why you've been looking at Walt Disney World vacations but have you considered joining the Disney Vacation Club?
If you haven't already heard about it - it's time you did. Let's have a look at just how it works. It's all based on a vacation point system. To become a member of the club you are required to purchase vacation points. You only have to do this to become a life long member.
In 2007 each vacation point was costing $104 and you were required to purchase at least 160 points which meant you needed just under $17,000 to become a member. Once you made your initial investment the only other fee you have is the annual dues which run around $5.00 per Walt Disney World vacations points.
I know what you're thinking "great but what do I do with these points?" Each year you are allotted your vacation points which you use to reserve your accommodations at Walt Disney World Vacations Resorts. How many points you need will depend on what resort you are booking at, the room type, the time of year, as well as other criteria. You are allowed to bank your points each year which means you can travel like Royalty if you save them up.
Each member is attached to a home resort. This is the actual resort that your membership fees are applied to. The perk to your home resort is that you can make reservations in it 11 months in advance if you like where as its only 7 months at other resorts.
Don't confuse this club with the traditional time share. This is an vacation plan that's second to none and with flexibility like no other, as well as special money saving benefits.
This club gives you the flexibility to vacation the way you and your family needs to. Choose where you go, for how long you stay, and which type of accommodation you choose. As a member you have all kinds of options. Not only do you have the resorts at Orlando to book into there are about 500 others around the globe that you also have access to. That means you can visit other parts of the world - maybe it's time for a romantic getaway?
