2025 Points charts released

On November 30th, Disney Vacation Club released the 2025 points charts. This year, there were no big changes to the charts, with just the usual adjustments due to the dates of holidays like Thanksgiving and Easter. The charts have remained the same for the third straight year. 

In addition, there was another increase in the transient tax at the Villas at Disneyland Hotel, from $2.78 per point in 2024 to $2.87 per point in 2025, an increase of 3%.

DVC Condominium Association meeting

Disney Vacation Club's annual condominium association meeting happened on December 7th, and while there is usually not a lot of news from it, there were a few tidbits came out.

An announcement was made that the Cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness resort would be “on sale soon,” with a few new images of the cabins being shared. A website, DisneyCabins.com, was provided, but the site doesn’t yet work. 

In the Q&A section, it was asked whether the new Polynesian DVC tower will be part of the same condo association and the answer was given as “our plans right now are for the new tower to be part of the existing Polynesian resort.”

EPCOT World Celebration and new nighttime show debuts

On December 6th, EPCOT opened the World Celebration neighborhood, including Dreamers Point to guests. The area has a lot of trees and seating, as well as embedded lighting that matches along with Spaceship Earth. 

The new Luminous show also debuted, and overall guest feedback was positive. In particular, the show does appear the same from all around World Showcase, which addresses a big complaint about the previous show.
