There can be a lot of perks when it comes to having a Disney membership, ranging from awesome discounts to exclusive access to exciting experiences.

However, since Disney is dealing with multiple changes company-wide, memberships are also seeing a few updates during this time as well. While Annual Passholders have seen differences in their park access with the new reservation system, Disney Vacation Club Members also have some modifications coming soon to their accounts.

Disney Vacation Club will be increasing the minimum direct ownership requirement to obtain Membership Extras from 100 points to 125 points today, October 19th.


Disney has previously increased the minimum direct ownership amount annually since we saw a bump from 75 points to 100 points just last year. Some of the Membership Extras include discounts on merchandise, access to special events (like Moonlight Magic), and the ability to use the Member Lounge in EPCOT.
