Direct Purchase Benefit 2.0 Follow-up

Below are the answers to some of the parking lot questions that were asked during the recent DPB 2.0 training sessions:


Will Members who purchased their Membership on the external resale market on or after Apr. 4, 2016, still have a DVC Member affiliation in MyDisneyExperience and CastAPP?

  • Yes, all DVC Members, regardless of when or where they purchased their Membership, will still be able to add the DVC Member affiliation in MDX and it will be viewable in CastApp.


Will MyDisneyExperience allow these external resale Members to purchase DVC Member-discounted or promotional tickets since they are able to add the DVC Member affiliation?

  • No. Our digital partners have parameters in place that will not allow Members with external resale contracts on or after Apr. 4, 2016, to purchase DVC Member-discounted tickets or special events online.


Will the Member Benefits and More tab on disneyvacationclub.com be visible to Members who purchased their Membership on the external resale market on or after Apr. 4, 2016?

  • Yes. The Member Benefits and More tab is visible to anyone visiting disneyvacationclub.com. Members should be aware that although they may be able to view these offerings, a valid DVC Membership Card must be presented in order to participate in certain experiences.


DORY will continue to be updated with these parking lot question follow-ups as we receive more information. To view the details about DPB 2.0, visit DORY >> DPB 2.0

DORY JMS Content Update

Over the next month, DORY will be updated to remove the Japanese content from the English-Japanese pages. The Japanese portion of these pages will be moved into a new location within DORY.

  • These new Japanese-only pages will be accessible via a Japanese flag link at the bottom of the corresponding English-only page.
  • DORY bookmarks for some pages may need to be updated during this process.
  • Once this process has been completed for the Japanese content, the next focus will be on creating a similar structure for current English-Spanish pages. We will keep you informed as this occurs.
