Disney Vacation Club Member Extras Now Require a Minimum 150 Points

According to the website, the Disney Vacation Club has raised the minimum Vacation Points required to obtain a Membership Card to 150.

A Disney Vacation Club Membership Card is required to use any member benefits, such as restaurant and merchandise discounts, special events, and more.

The website lists the official policy for member extras:

Effective June 3, 2021, to obtain a Disney Vacation Club Membership Card, Members must accumulate a total of at least 150 Vacation Points purchased directly from Disney Vacation Development, Inc. Disney and Concierge Collections options are not available for ownership interests not purchased directly from Disney Vacation Development, Inc. after March 21, 2011, and, effective April 4, 2016, Members who have not purchased an ownership interest directly from Disney Vacation Development, Inc. will not have access to Membership Extras.

This new point minimum is effective as of June 3rd. The minimum was raised to 125 last October, marking two increases within a 12-month period.

I’d be interested to know if they are grandfathering anyone in. My family and I just bought 100 points 2 years ago when that was the minimum.

This is what it is, but I can confidently say it’s the need to constantly chase this changing number that will likely keep me from ever being DVC… I’ve considered it seriously twice now, and each time the minimum to be a real boy has increased. I’m blessed to be doing fairly well, but I can’t catch up to this…

The card gives you a handful of perks you don’t get if you go resale. We love our DVC. I wouldn’t let a blue card in your wallet stop you. A lot if great resale deals out there…

Interesting, but it seems like losing the perks changes the equation a fair bit. Otherwise it’s kinda just pre-paying for a hotel room to get the best rate… for decades. Harder to sell my wife on, sadly. But who knows, given the right deal at the right time.
