One Time Use Points

I don't have enough points to book what I want even with banking and borrowing, what can I do?

OR What are one time use points?

Direct from the Disney web-site...


As a Disney Vacation Club Member, occasionally you may find yourself in need of just few extra Vacation Points in order to book that perfect dream vacation. You can bank, borrow and transfer from another Contract. Or take advantage of another option: one-time-use Vacation Points.


You have the option to purchase up to 24 additional Vacation Points each Use Year. One-time-use points may be used for Disney Vacation Club accommodations in the 7-month booking window. One-time-use points may not be used for Home Resort Priority. A Member may purchase one-time-use Vacation Points for Disney Collection and World Collection reservations, provided the booking window for that trip is open (for example, Disney Cruise Line reservations may be open up to 2 years in advance). One-time-use Vacation Points may not be purchased for Concierge Collection reservations.


The purchase just needs to occur at the time you're making the reservation that requires them.


  • Rates are subject to change, but as of September 2023 Members enjoy a rate of $20 per one-time-use Vacation Point including taxes. 
  • You won't be able to cancel or refund your purchase of one-time use Vacation Points, nor will you be able to transfer, bank, or borrow them.
  • In the event that your trip does not unfold as planned and your reservation must be canceled, be aware that one-time-use Vacation Points expire at the end of your Use Year.
  • You can not access them online to use them for a reservation, only Member Services (MS) can apply them to a reservation that is 7 months or less out.

Availability of one-time-use Vacation Points may be limited or suspended from time to time, and the fee is subject to change.


To take advantage of one-time-use Vacation Points, contact Member Services.


One Time Use Points were introduced in 2010 as a way for owners to buy a small number of points to complete a single reservation, rather than purchasing a contract add-on costing thousands of dollars. In 2010 the cost was $15 per point, a rate that remained in effect for more than seven years until 2017 when the rate increased to $17 per point. Toward the end of 2018 the price increased again to $19 per point. In February of 2023 the price raised again to $22 per point, and then lowered again to $20 per point in September of the same year.
