Disney Vacation Club Celebrates 25 Years with FREE Exclusive Members-Only After Hours Events at WDW

25th anniversary DVC

Are you a Disney Vacation Club member? We just became members ourselves very recently, and we’re so excited because this year is going to be a fantastic year to be part of the DVC family! They are celebrating their 25th Anniversary in 2016 and to make this special occasion a memorable one, they are offering all kinds of wonderful opportunities for members to delight in the magic of Disney. One of these special offers is a series of exclusive, members-only (and their guests!) after hours park events in Walt Disney World – and the best part is, they’re FREE! Each event is completely complimentary, so NO park admission is required, and each member is allowed to bring a certain number of guests with them to the party. If the member is staying at a Disney resort, they are allowed to bring up to 11 additional guests with them (party of 12 total including the DVC member), regardless of whether they booked their resort reservation using their DVC points or not. If they member is not staying at a Disney resort, then they are limited to 5 additional guests (party of 6 total). There will be a total of 4 different special party events taking place, each one happening on multiple dates, and each one will take place during the hours of 9:30pm to 12am midnight. However, members and their guests can actually enter the park as early as 7:00pm for free!
